Dell 17" Laptop Intel Core i7 8GB RAM, 1TB HD w/ Tech Support & MS Office
I ordered this computer when my 5 year old desktop computer died. Got the 15 inch, which is plenty big. Windows 8 is a breeze; if you have used apps before on other devices, you will have no problems with Windows 8. So impressed with the Terabyte hard drive. Love that the computer has a DVD/CD drive-so many computers do not these days. The only thing I would add to the computer is a backlit keyboard. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
Love Love Love!!
I bought this computer on October 6th TSV after my HPs screen broke and it arrived on November 1st. I have an older Dell that's 7 years old and still running! Bought this to upgrade because Im starting school, It works beautifully!! I got the purple, 17" w/ microsoft office. I have the Sims 3 installed on it and it runs like a beauty. I have more than 1000 pictures on this and it isn't slow at all. It automatically updated to Windows 8.1 for me and my graphics card automatically updated too!! Looking forward to a long life for this computer.
3rd time and nothing
My third review, maybe this one will show up... I tried to keep this laptop, I thought it was great when internets works but when I move it to a different wireless or plug to another modem, it wont do it! I bought a laptop because I move with it, I'm not sure what to do customer service hasn't been helpful at all, and I am contacting someone else about this issue, if I cant use it wireless, it's a no-no.
Im curious on how long it takes to receive the computer order on 11/10\13
Best computer for the money
I think that this computer is great. It works well with games such as The Sims 3 and I think it was worth every penny. I was looking for a computer so my daughter could play her on-line game wizard 101 and the computer not freeze every minute. So far she loves it and cant stop playing her new Sims 3 PC game and is so glade it doesn't freeze up on her like her old computer. This Computer if top of the line i7 gen 4 so she should not need another computer for several years. She loves the color purple.
Bought this when it was on TSV about a month ago, once I got it I upgraded to Windows 8.1 once you do that some of the bonus software such as Trend Micro Titanium has to be updated from the web site instead of using the disc. The QVC Tech Center was awesome with this. Once the correct updates are installed the computer runs very fast and the 8.1 is so much better than the 8.0. I had an HP prior to this and the Dell really out performs it with the 4th generation Core i7. I would highly recommend this computer.
Love this computer, but as soon as I updated to Windows 8.1, the included Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus said it was not compatible. What is the point of giving it to us for 'life' if it doesn't work once updated? Other than that, it isn't too bad to use once you figure out the shortcuts and such!
Didn't last long
Product would be a great buy if it worked. It did work the first day. Worked just fine and I was looking forward to enjoying my souped up new computer. No such luck. The second day the computer was dead to the world. Am returning it for a refund. Won't replace it since I had to wait almost a month to receive this one.
Just got this computer in purple with MS Office. This machine is super fast! Will take a while to get to know Windows 8 but think I will like it after I do. Love the color! You won't be
disappointed. Like that you have 30 days to try it. Use MS Office a lot so glad that this machine has it. Love, love love this purchase!
terrible problems from start
I bought this is in red when it was $200 cheapier. Can't get to support group. Came without microsoft code that was part of my order which qvc customer service had to get involved to acquire for me. Constant problems with losing internet wherever I was using it whether public or home. Now at inital startup windows won't even load when initially turned on. Tried for 4 hours to get support if they answer I'm put on hold then disconnected. Very disapponted sending back and not reordering. Would have been good value if I had received working unit and support was availible as promised. Going back to HP. Had problems with last 2 dells. Done
GREAT Lap Top!
Mine all works great and I love it all best I have ever had! Love it very much Thanks! =)
I am not sure what the fuss is, you have to take your time to learn something new, which in this case is Windows 8. I am not totally thrilled, but I got it and it will be fine. As far as instructions, there are tutorials for it once you get it going. I have loaded the programs I wanted to use from the disc and that was easy. One note, it is recommended that you make a reboot disc in case of issues, because there is not one supplied. You have to follow the directions and it looks easy, I just need to get a disc or flash drive for it. I like the computer itself, it is extremely fast. I got purple, and it is really a nice shade. I hope in the long run it will still impress me, for I have read reviews along the way and hope that Dell learned from mistakes.
