I have been using this laptop for little over a year.
Issues I had with this system
- Some keys stopped working after 1 year, was replaced
- Silver paint around the touchpad area faded, was replaced
- Front media keys got a little hard to press. Had to use more pressure to get it to work, also paint on the media keys chipped out, was replaced.
All the above was replaced for free as it is under warranty.
The laptop is very quiet and never heats up. It provides good performance for its price range. Dell service is very good. Nice big 15 inch screen. My battery is slowly dieing though (now lasts for little less than 2 hours). Sound quality is very very good (well done Dell!).
