    I've had it for two years

    Posted .

    I purchased this laptop two years ago and have never had a single issue. I have always used this as my "travel computer ". I keep it in my diaper bag. I've dropped it more than a few times, my toddlers are always playing with it, it has never let me down. Its the same size as my tablet so it is convenient to carry.

    I love it the only thing I wish it had is touchscreen :( and another downside is that the charger tip broke the 1st week and I had to contact Dell for a replacement because Best Biy couldn't find me one

    I am getting this for a gift for someone who does use the computer, but not for a lot of things. Really, it is a glorified tablet with the durability of a laptop. It comes with Windows 10, the memory is fine at 4GB, and the storage is a small for most people at 32GB. If you're a gamer or even use a lot of storage it probably would not be your 1st choice. My solution is to add a thumb drive for storage with my gift. Its the perfect choice for someone I know.

    Garbage don’t buy

    This computer is too slow to run this operating system. It takes at least a minute to do any simple task. Sometimes it won’t even open up the window. If it wasn’t so cheap I would’ve returned it.

    For the price it works well, overall it, well, works. It's kind of slow but you get what you pay for, I only needed it for two tasks and it works well for it. If your looking for an everyday computer the processing speed would get agervating.

    Great little laptop

    Posted .

    I needed an inexpensive, lightweight, and small laptop to carry with me for basic web browsing and connecting remotely to work and this laptop has been perfect for that. One thing I liked most about this laptop is the fact is has 4GB of memory. Most laptops in the same price range as this Dell Inspiron only have 2GB of memory. Believe me, you do NOT want to buy any Windows 10 computer with only 2GB of memory. Period! You will thank me later. Some reviews talk about the laptop being slow and not having enough disk space. That's expected! It's not meant to be fast or have enough disk space to store very many programs. I actually think the weaker specs are a benefit of this laptop. The fact it has a low-end Celeron CPU and uses eMMC flash memory instead of a larger HDD (hard drive) results is much less power usage and thefore this laptop has VERY long battery life. To compensate for the lack of disk space, you can always buy a MicroSD card and Windows can be configured to use the SD card to store all your Windows 10 apps and other documents. If you have a large program that can only be installed on the C drive (many Win32 legacy apps have to be) then you may run into disk space issues but this is a limitation of almost any computer in this price range. To help save disk space, I decided to not use 3rd party anti-virus software and uninstalled McAfee which freed up some disk space. Windows 10's built-in anti-virus (Defender) is now a viable option to use instead of installing a 3rd party anti-virus program. If you feel the laptop is very slow, remember that when you first boot up the laptop it will be installing lots and lots of updates the first day or two you have your computer. That will make it feel slower than usual for a while. Overall this laptop does everything you can expect for a laptop to do in this price range. Highly recommended!

    AWESOME within its technical limitations

    I own a computer repair shop and my perspective is that of a computer expert. Some items in here may not make sense for normal users, so keep that in mind. I bought this laptop as a companion for my photo/video production backpack in which I carry several cameras. I wanted a way to review the footage on location. In that regard, note that the card slot is a MicroSD slot and you'll need a USB SD card reader to read normal cards. The available ports are acceptable for this price point. The Celeron processor's acceleration features and 4K external display support were important to me; having Intel Quick Sync means I can play 4K content even though the CPU can't handle it otherwise and OBS Studio can even handle capturing video of the screen! Being able to record tutorial video content is very nice; I was not expecting it to be able to handle screen capture effectively. One big issue which is common to 32GB eMMC SSD laptops is that the available storage space out of the box is pretty poor. Part of this is the big recovery partition you can't delete and may never use and part of it is the pre-installed software you don't need. If you are somewhat tech-savvy, I highly recommend using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to make a bootable USB installer for the latest version of Windows 10 and completely wiping out the eMMC SSD with a clean install. Between losing the factory recovery partition and the extra unnecessary software, you'll end up with roughly 13GB free of the total 29.7GB capacity (out of the box it's more like 7GB.) I find that this computer is fairly rugged for a small cheap laptop. It sits in a padded laptop compartment on my backpack but the pack is routinely laid down on top of that compartment. It holds up fairly well against the pressure of being transported. It is quite light. The battery life is GREAT when compared to my gaming laptop and most full-size brand new laptops I've seen. Battery time goes down significantly with the screen brightness turned up, so keep that in mind. Of course, the screen is quite good and is a matte LCD rather than glossy, a big plus since these laptops are likely to be used in environments where glare is a big issue. One crucial factor in purchasing this computer over other options was that it comes with 4GB of RAM. In my opinion, there is no reason to buy similar cheap 11-inch laptops with 2GB of RAM since it cannot be upgraded and 2GB is truly a bare minimum that is only really enough to run a modern web browser. With the extra memory I can have image editing software, a browser, a word processor, a mail client, and a chat client open all at once and not worry about wearing out the SSD due running out of RAM and falling into excessive memory paging. I did have an issue when I first bought the machine where it would not power on. It turns out that holding the power button for 10 seconds will do a hardware reset (clearing the glitch) and the computer should turn on properly. It can take several seconds for the screen to light up and DELL to appear after holding down the power button, so be patient! There's no power light and no hard drive clatter sound so you have no way of knowing it's powered on other than the screen. They could have at least put in a power light somewhere, but I guess you get what you pay for. One big thing I see in negative reviews for dirt cheap computers like this is ridiculous expectations, so you need to understand what this can and cannot handle BEFORE you buy it. It can handle web browsing, office suites, some image editing, audio editing, and even some light gaming, although none of it will happen super fast. It won't handle video editing, bigger video games, and it has limited capacity which means it can't hold 10,000 DSLR photos or high-quality music files. If you need more than about 7GB of storage...expect to add a MicroSDXC card, flash drive, or external hard drive, all of which will reduce battery life. The storage, CPU, and RAM **ARE NOT UPGRADABLE** so don't buy this expecting to be able to improve the specs later if needed; you'll have to replace the whole computer to "upgrade." I also tried to boot Windows 7 and 8 on this computer but neither of them worked, so be aware that you will be stuck on Windows 10. It will run Linux just fine and the hardware should all be supported by recent distributions. If you have realistic expectations, you'll be very happy with this computer and I recommend it highly.

    When I first bought it, I was absolutely loved it but as time went one I noticed it started getting a bit slow. It's not too slow to where you have to wait awhile just a little slow as to when I first bought it. Overall, a very good laptop.

    There is a reason why this laptop is so cheap

    Posted .

    I've only had this laptop for a month and I'm already having problems with it. I am a college student so I really only use it for papers and internet and even for those things it is very slow. It also randomly turns off for no reason and has allot of problems connecting to the internet. I would not recommend buying this laptop.

    Simple and easy to use

    I picked this up as a spare PC that I can leave unlocked for guests or to look up recipes, etc. In terms of price for performance this was a really good deal, weak processor but a decent amount of RAM for the size. The internal memory is mostly filled by the OS but a small USB drive will give you any extra space you need. Don't expect to do much more than running videos, browser games, or streaming, but the inclusion of a full sized HDMI out also gives it some potential as a cheap living room media PC as well. And I dig the bright blue case! Major drawbacks are the Dell bloatware, tiny keyboard, screens a bit small and not 1080P but you won't find much better for this price point.

    Works well for what i want it to do, but limited

    Posted .

    It's a nice little laptop that I intend to use for travel purposes only. The 32GB storage is VERY limiting. All I have on it is Windows 10, Office 2016, Adobe Reader and pdf995 and the free storage space is practically gone. Every time there is an update or I used it to access files, the available storage goes down even more. Even when I clicked the "compress files to save space" option the available storage dropped drastically. I guess that's a side effect of using solid state. I was told I can't increase the storage by replacing the drive because the solid states are basically hard-wired chips. At one point I had less than 1GB free storage. I had to literally re-install a clean, skinny version of Windows 10 just to eliminate all the Dell and bloatware possible. The price was good: open box. All said and done, my use for this is going to be a travel unit tied to OneDrive for purposes of accessing working files and projects remotely. It will do what I want, but I have to constantly be deleting old files in order to keep it useable. Right now I have about 14GB free storage but it seems to get whittled away bit by bit every time I use the unit. We'll see if I keep it long term.

    I purchased this laptop more than 3 months ago and have used it practically daily since. I needed something small and durable I could drop in a diaper bag...this fit the bill. Out of the box the thing was snail slow, but once I removed all the unnecessary bloatware, this pretty little computer picked up speed! Its close in size to a 10 inch tablet so I have no issues carrying it with me everywhere. The camera quality & microphone are nice so I have no issues when video chatting. And my battery power is still strong after 3 months of multi-houred daily use.

    Great Cheap PC

    I am all Mac personally, love my MacBook Pro and iMac, but at work I found myself playing the Microsoft Solitaire which is unavailable on Mac. So I grabbed this laptop for $150 after using a coupon and the thing is cheap, flimsy and has sharp plastic sides but it runs Solitaire great. First thing I did was uninstall almost everything and it has been doing fine, the screen is adequate compared to a retina but for playing solitaire while laying in bed going to sleep it does the job. Buy this laptop for web browsing and lightweight computer usage and remember it is a toy, not a real computer.
