    Windows 10 Home not so intuitive as Windows 7

    I ordered this new Dell 17" Inspiron 7786 2 in 1 laptop online from Best Buy to quickly replace my broken 9 year old Dell Studio 17 which had Windows 7 Pro. Dell's shipment of that same computer was going to take 2 weeks longer than what Best Buy offered. The laptop is fine, but the Windows 10 Home edition has taken me much longer to configure, customize, and install programs for my small business than any other Windows operating system that I have had in the last 25 years. For some reason, Microsoft has put more effort into being able to change colors, than actually doing work related program computer functioning settings. Lot's of CMD line tweaks are out there in the community to bypass Windows 10 settings. Never had to use the command line since Windows 95! I'm starting to re-learn the "logic" of this new operating system settings and commands, but I would say that Android apps and Apple IOS has a much more intuitive interface compared to Windows 10. It's been 3 weeks since I got the new system setup from the old Windows 7 Pro email (WLM and Contacts) and the new Edge browser. Maybe it's for the best? Hoping so! Time will tell.

    Slow Wi-Fi

    I've only had this a day and was frustrated by the slow WiFi download speeds. Was only getting about 1/6 of the speed I should have. After checking and updating drivers found the culprit was the pre-installed application called SmartByte. After uninstalling speeds are right where they should be. Dell, please stop installing these frustrating bloatware applications and screwing up what is otherwise a beautiful product.

    - build quality feels pretty solid - the performance with the SSD is awesome, it's very fast - the touch monitor works very well, responsive and sensitive. - on the downside and the reason for only getting 4 stars is the CPU fan that is too noisy even when running in low speed. it sounds almost as if it's touching something. not what you'd expect from a Dell laptop in that price range

    The overall design makes a lot of sense - thin body, SSD only storage, above average RAM, touchscreen on 360 hinges, solid battery life - it's 2019, a laptop today should have all that. Unfortunate drawbacks - entry level graphics card. Entry level audio card. Wish those were upgradable.

    The screen 17inch was my main reason for purchase. Very pleased with the HD screen and adaptability to control color saturation.

    the screen is a true joy to use...didn't realize how effective the bigger 17.3" screen is
