Please do not buy this laptop. I bought it in october and I have not been happy for one second. For the $899 that I paid for it its specs were madiocre at best. The screen is a low resolution and has lines of stuck pixels running down the screen. The laptop is always having problems returning from sleep and changing resolutions. The backlit keyboard is CONSTANTLY failing and the fingerprint reader is also. The Touch buttons on the top work half of the time at best. The touch pad is annoyingly off center and is very sticky. Within a month of everyday use of my laptop 3 of the 4 USB ports died. The case is constantly falling apart in multiple places. Dell has done NOTHING to fix this despite numerous calls to thier tech people. There are a few pros and they are as follows: DECENT graphics card, comfortable keyboard and OK battery life. The slot loading DVD drive is nice to have but having it near the power button is a terrible idea. The pattern near the keypad is obnoxious and unnecessary. Please do not waste your money on this laptop.
