      Where are the complete exact specs & support info/links?! I can't find anything even on Dell.Com. (I tried to find out b4 buying for days, up to last moment of sale, over now. At non-sale price better alternatives elsewhere. LACK OF INFO AGAIN!)   (1 Answer)

        Answer

        I finally found more detailed specs & build info, @ Dell support site. Using the device Service Tag, or Express Service Code (from an in store display unit). http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/servicetag/HDMDQF2/ Dell Service Tag - HDMDQF2. Express Service Code - 37828952318. This is the same model. Battery Dell 40Wh (14.8Vdc/2750mAHr). Externally removable (quick release). (Tip to find info about Dell computers is to not include the 1st letter(s) in the model number/ID. Could not find on Dell site until I left out initial letter; Dell support specs dues not include the 1st letter either. Example, this is Dell Inspiron I5566-3000BLK-PUS. Don't include the I in I5566, just search by 5566. In this case, I think I in I5566 is abbreviation for series name, Inspiron. -- Also, for Dell, search by Service Tag, or Express Service Code may work, if normal model, or UPC/EAN/GTIN code search does not find.)

          Answer

          Yes, Wi-Fi 802.11n. (Previous generation standard. Not the recent ac standard.) (Not sure if dual band or which bands 2.5, or 5GHz; not sure if supports previous Wi-Fi standards g, a, or b. Not sure about # of antennas (likely 1); or if MIMO support.) Also, wired network port is Ethernet 10/100Mbps. (No 1000Mbps/1Gbps.)

          Is the battery removable? What is the average battery life? Is the keyboard backlit?   (3 Answers)

            Answer

            The battery is removable and replaceable if you remove the bottom faceplate. On average, when browsing the Internet, Dell told me that you can push out 13 hours on the lowest power settings when browsing the Internet and about 6 when gaming. The keyboard is backlit with a pleasant red, not overpowering your eyes at night and allowing you to leave it on during the day without making things too difficult to use. It also has three different brightness options: off, low, and high, and is controlled by using the F10 key, or by holding Function (Fn) and tapping F10. You can disable the need for the Function key for the multimedia functions if you like by holding Function and hitting Escape.

              This laptop would be sufficient for photo editing. An ideal laptop would have an i5 processor with 16GB of memory and an SSD.

                    Answer

                    I thought the resolution was pretty good for watching TV, movies, or viewing pictures. However, I am just an average novice user and I am no graphics expert, so take my opinions with a grain of salt. If you are just using this for basic viewing, it should be fine.

                    Yes, you can plug 3.0 devices into computer 2.0 ports and vice versa. Your speed will be limited to the 2.0 device/port.
