Dell Inspiron 14z review


It's called rebranding, and by golly, Dell needs to do it. Once the world's top PC maker, it's ceded market share to the likes of HP and Acer and earned

I don't know if it's because I'm not use to Windows 8 or it's the computer, but the webpages seem to randomly load. I tried turning down the sensitivity of the touchpad, but that doesn't seem to help. Sometimes I'll X out a webpage or hit "send" on an...
