BEWARE - Overview tab says Touch Screen but it is non-touch


Still evaluating laptop but I wanted to give a warning about the Overview tab on Newegg's site erroneously listing this model as a "15.6" standard touch screen display". The monitor is non-touch.

good laptop but the battery


got it on black friday for 480 while its original price was 700-750. very solid laptop and have used it on game such red orchestra 2 (medium-high), shogun 2 (medium), left4dead (medium) settings and had no issue (not saying it was perfectly smooth but...

owning a macbook pro with 1920 res and having this laptop with 1380 res concurrently, and i feel the screen is a bit blurry ; THE MAIN ISSUE: the battery drains very quickly just surfing the web, i don't know if it is related to the manufacturer...

not a bad notebook for the money. sleek design, great battery life, touch screen enabled, USB 3.0 and many more features


I gave this notebook a 4/5 just for the fact that dell has designed a great notebook except for the touch screen aspect of the computer. It might just be my laptop but I will say this is a great laptop for the money and you can't go wrong

I like the way dell designed this notebook. It is sleek, stylish and fits my needs as a computer. I'm currently upgrading from a Core 2 Duo E8400 Desktop processor to the 4th gen IVY bridge. It is fast and responsive. Not really digging the Windows 8,...

only problem I have is with the touch screen. sometimes it randomly shows dots as if it is being pressed down by touch. This problem can be very annoying, I have no idea if anybody else has faced a similar problem with any windows 8 touch screen...

DELL 15R (i15RM-4390SLV)


The two other posters dinged this unit pretty hard because the GPU wasn't what it was supposed to be. (It looks like it might be correct as of this date.) That's not a fair assessment of the performance of the machine. An i7 nicely dressed for $750 is...

i7 with 8 Gb of ram and a fair size screen

The hard drive is 5400 rpm. Apparently a typo about the GPU. That or they expected to have something else when it was originally documented

Hard to Beat Deal Right Now


Great deal -- right now I think it's hard to beat without spending another $300+. Newegg is selling a refurb unit but as the previous reviewer stated you would be hardpressed to identify it as such. Mine came with a barely noticeable scuff mark along...

Battery life. Two to three hours at most. This is not a problem for me but it is shorter than other machines of similar spec out there

Not a good choice


Switchable graphics between the amd 7730m & intel hd 4000 are badly implemented and Dell has no fix.The only way i could tell that the 7730 is running 3d is by manually comparing framerates between hd 5650 on another laptop and this one.Cpu-z ,DX11 and...

Beautiful Dell full hdmi screen

Hard drive is the slowest 5400 speed i have seen in the past 5 years.Lid is somewhat flimsy.Windows 8 is horrible.Laptop is heavy without being sturdy.There are much better choices.Read other thoughts.An easy way to find out how buggy a laptop is ,is...

What's good is good and what's bad is really bad


What a piece of garbage.

For the price this seems like a pretty great buy. You get the memory, drive space and i7 performance as well as a solid screen and decent keyboard. When it's working you'll be pretty happy

The battery life is abysmal. I don't mean bad I mean suck, suckity, suck, suck, suck. I got in a 9:00 by 10:30 I was at 7%. That's just email, web and SSMS ; The wifi adapter can't lose connectivity and need to be reset fast enough. The phrase "The...

Broke 12 days after I could RMA it


Worst tech purchase I have made in a very long time. Buy this and prepare to be sad.

The stats look nice and when it's working it's fine

Well the wifi keeps disconnecting every 10 minutes. The video card errored out so that's kind of negative. One of the USB devices also failed so that's not really great and the battery only lasts a robust 90 minutes. So if you like having a desktop...

Decent computer, but not what I ordered


This computer is lightweight and sleek, the keys are sensitive and easy to push

The cons for this system are large. The box my system came in matched the description on newegg but the actual device was completely lacking the Radeon HD 8730 card that was supposed to be installed. Calling Dell about this issue did absolutely no...
