    Computer freezes

    For a computer with these specs, it is not worth the purchase. The computer freezes constantly on very basic functions. Start up speed is less than optimal, and the facial recognition is poor. The battery life states it should last longer than what it does. I am more than disappointed with this purchase. I highly advise any customers that are looking at this computer to turn away before it is too late. I only still have the computer because I am a college student and haven't had time to trade it in for a different one. Don't put yourself through the headache I am going through.

    Powerful and versatile laptop

    The battery is the only weak point, it lasts around 6 hours for video. My laptop never lags; I typically run: Word, Chrome with 6 tabs, Adobe Reader, and Spotify all at the same time. The touch screen makes scrolling and quick clicks a breeze. The laptop never overheats, maybe because of the metal body which transfers heat quickly. The sound quality is pretty decent. It doesn't have that many ports, but it's not like I need 6 different usb ports + wireless is where things are shifting. I would say this laptop is more for school & work, but it does pack a modest Nvidia card so it can also play games at low settings.

    Nothing But Trouble

    This computer had a hard drive go bad after only 3 months of use. Dell was useless in getting it going again. And I've had to have the operating system reinstalled about every 3 months since. Which means I have to set the whole thing up again each time. I use it for my photography business so it's crucial for it to be running for me. Luckily, I bought the Geek Squad protection for it. It's the only computer that I've ever had that caused me this much trouble. Dell customer service has been a major disappointment too. I wouldn't buy another Dell product ever again.

    This computer/tablet is very light weight. The graphics are great. The battery life is better than my previous laptops. I am just a little disappointed that it runs a little slower than my previous laptop. I may upgrade it with a solid state drive for quicker performance. My previous laptop was also a Dell Inspiron 7000, Icore 7, 17", 16GB. Bought it in 2015. It ran faster than this model. I miss it. Died in its prime from an accident. Since I have had great results with the Dell Laptops, I hurried out to buy another Dell to replace the one that died as a result of a protein shake blowing up on it and killing the motherboard.

    Nice 17.3" Laptop With Good Specs For A Good Price

    I purchased this laptop as a replacement for an older Dell I've owned for years. I was looking for something with a Core I7 proc and 16G of RAM. I had been circling a few different models including the Insprion 7000 series. The laptop is large and heavy, which doesn't matter for my purposes. Most of the time it sits on the end of my sofa. The performance is good and the display is gorgeous. Pros: Good processor and RAM specs, gorgeous display, nice backlit keyboard, good performance for the money. Cons: Large and heavy, 1TB spinning disk has plenty of space but SSD would be better, power button on the side is easy to hit accidentally.

    My 7 year old laptop unceremoniously went to its great reward, so I ran out for a replacement unit. Being a bit blind, I insisted on a 17" screen like my last and this one fit the bill. The 2-in-1 feature turned out to be handier than I expected, especially when showing off pics and graphics to colleagues and friends/family. Enough power to play the older games I like, with some pretty neat features/apps included. The only thing I had trouble with at first was the location of the power/sleep button -- it's right near the front corner where one would grab the unit to move it around, so the unit got accidentally put to sleep numerous times at first.

    Massive, clear screen; thin body

    This is my first touch screen laptop and I'm beginning to enjoy that feature more each day. In tablet mode and with the terrific built-in speakers, watching a movie on this is great. I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro for the extra security features (Bitlocker, etc.) and am glad I did. I didn't think I'd like the face recognition login but I use it all the time with no problems. The Intel Core i7 processor and 16Gb of RAM are perfect for my needs. Because it's so thin (they've eliminated the replaceable battery pack), the 17" screen still fits in my old laptop case and its actually lighter than my previous 15.6" laptop.

    As with most computer upgrades it is much faster than an older computer. I like two things in particular. The number pad to the right of the keyboard and that the keys have back lighting so it can be used easily while watching TV with lights off. Easy set up although it took some time but the computer walked us through it.(Geek squad will do it to as part of the purchase if you choose to let them.) I would stick with 17" if you plan on watching videos and TV. The smaller ones are...well smaller. Speakers are great so two or three people can easily see and hear the video.

    This laptop is like the Nissan of laptops, does everything well but nothing great. It’s an expensive laptop and yet it really doesn’t justify itself being one. The performance is good, screen decent, battery is passable. I do like the keyboard a lot but the trackpad is meh. I did have a hardware failure on the laptop, the hard drive failed and I had to send it into Dell for replacement. That was probably just a defect in my laptop but definitely hold on to the box once you buy this. Overall everything has its flaws, this laptop is still good in my opinion but not great.

    I bought this laptop because I needed something faster than my HP laptop that had a i5. What turned me on to this laptop was that it has dedicated memory for the graphics card, which means the design programs I run won't slog the computer down. I haven't used the tablet mode yet and honestly, can't see me using it all - a 17" tablet is a bit bulky. I do use the touchscreen mode, mostly for scrolling when reading online textbooks or long pdf files. It starts up in seconds, batter lasts several days with average use. I have had it for about a month now and still am loving it.

    I purchased this laptop as a Christmas gift for my 11-year old son. I was looking for a gaming computer that was not too expensive (over $1,500). This laptop is perfect. It has an Intel i7 processor, NVIDA Geforce Gtx 940mx which enhances gaming capabilities and a 1 TB Hard Drive. I also purchased Geek Squad and had a technician set up the computer for us in a local Best Buy, including installing antivirus software and all Microsoft updates. My son is very happy with the computer and he has not experienced any technical glitches whatsoever. We are happy with this purchase.

    The number one criticism I read in the reviews before buying this computer was about the location of the on/off power button. It is on the bottom of the right hand corner. I thought, "Oh that's petty." Not so. It is an awful defect. I can't tell you how many times I have picked up the computer and hit the power button which shuts it down. And like any computer, it takes way longer than it should to reboot. If you're carrying the computer for a presentation at work and it shuts down, you're screwed. It take half of your presentation time to reboot. Terrible design.

    What a great laptop! Plenty of RAM & processing speed! No problem running multiple apps and lots of browser tabs; keeps on running quickly. The touchscreen is very responsive and the laptop is rock solid. It's made of metal so super strong, the only trade-off is that it's a little heavier but definitely worth it. I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 that's made of plastic and it flexes all of the time making the mouse hard to use.

    A HUGE-sized Laptop, But So Fully Loaded...

    I've had 17-inch laptops before, and this one is half the weight of the older ones (old technology!). PLUS, it's loaded with RAM, has a huge amount of storage (1 TeraByte!), FAST WiFi, a GigaBit network connection, and TOUCHSCREEN. The only real drag on this system is that it's Windows 10, HOME instead of PRO, and I feel that the Home Edition is harder to use than the PRO Edition (plus, all the "BloatWare" that needs to be cleaned off of ANY retail laptop purchase). All in all, a very very nice 17-inch laptop.

    So far this has been an amazing laptop. It is efficient. Easy. Fast. Love the 17 inch screen. The quality is amazing. Plenty of everything anyone would need. . I had two other brands that I had to take back that were not Dell's. Have no idea why I even considered anything but Dell. So far no problems with this one. . I have owned several Dell computers and have been so pleased with all of them . The last one I had lasted 15 years. I also own a smaller Dell that my husband uses every day. Highly recommended. Love Dell products.

    I purchased this computer as a Christmas present for my 11-year old son who is an avid gamer. He LOVES the computer. I purchased the computer because of the fast Intel i7 processor, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 940MX which enhances gaming capability and the 17" screen. I also purchased Geek Squad and had the technician to complete the Microsoft upgrades and load the antivirus software. My son has been using this computer daily for about a month and has not experienced any technical issues. I highly recommend this Dell computer.

    I am very happy with the unit, the metal construction is excellent, the screen beautiful, the minimalistic design I appreciate. It is quite big in size with its 17' display so weight, dimensions and battery duration are obviously impacted by this. I use it as a desk top with the option of easily moving the unit to another room when needed. I recommend this unit even if, with my actual technical requirements, a unit with i5 processor would have been sufficient and would have had a lower cost

    Powerful 2-in-1 for Family Member

    I purchased this for a family member whose older touch-screen All-in-One (AIO) has started showing its age. The large screen is easier to view. We've become quite accustomed to the touch-screen, so this was important in this system. The CPU power and memory should provide useful service for several years. The touch-pad is a little sensitive and we miss having a dedicated button to disable it. However, we've found the software setting in Windows 10 which disables the touch pad when a mouse is connected.

    Bought this computer to replace a failing laptop. The performance has been great. Just getting used to Windows 10, so cannot really compare things, but it seem pretty straight forward. I can't wait to load photo editing software and give this computer a challenge. The backlit keyboard has been a delight, did not know what I have been missing. The 17 inch screen is big, but I usually use it on a desk, but that might be a factor to some. So far it has met and exceeded my expectations.
