This Dell laptop has very good value for price.
Here are 2 Good Tweaks to make it better
1) increase your Wi-Fi speed.
Wifi network adapter supports 2.4 Ghz and 5Ghz.
But even though I was right next to the router, the laptop was only connected at 2.4 GHz (in my case about 59mbps) )
I did this tweak:
Device Manager → Network Adapter → Wifi AC → right click → features → Advanced Options → Change preferred network from’ no preference ' to '5G'
Speed changed to 59Mbps → 246Mbps
(Note that the wired network adapter is only 10/100 – so the highest I can get wired is only 100Mbps, which is slower than Wi-Fi at 5GHz )
2) this laptop is announced with Windows 10 Home.
It actually has Windows 10S mode.
Getting out of S Mode is pretty easy
Settings → Update And Security - > Activation . → Switch to Windows 10 Home
Everything else was so good.
OK, this is my first Amazon purchase, and as an online student, I have to admit that I am quite pleased with the overall purchase and efficient service. First, it was very easy to install and there were no problems switching from S-Mode to Windows 10. The touch screen is definitely responsive, the screen is excellent, the keyboard has a great touch, excellent storage and speed is very good compared to my old laptop. The battery lasted about 3 1/2 hours when I first bought it, but I wish it would last a little longer. The overall shopping experience was great and the product itself was an absolutely fantastic purchase. I highly recommend this laptop.
That was a great decision. This computer meets my needs. I've done my research and eliminated the others...the truth is, I have a 15.6-inch touchscreen and hi pixel plus long battery life! In addition to plug and play, it is guided by cortana. I'm looking for ffwd to start lessons online and if that's disappointing, I'll post it. It was delivered a day late, so I was able to make corrections to a doctor I needed for an online mtg. But it worked and being at home meant it was safe in my garden until I finished mtg.
I really love this machine, touch screen numbers keyboard! And it's actually very fast. That was a big change after my old HP, which was great, but he was already 5 years old.. The machine came in in-S mode, but nothing is relevant. As soon as you tried to download office he asked if you would like to go to the mod s and clicked yes and that was it.. It works and it works. I would definitely recommend.
It's my first official laptop purchase and I have to say I picked a good one. It was all bells and whistles and under $ 550. I've done my research and I'm happy with my choice. I'm saying that once you get out of S Mode , you can do S mode and more. (under Settings)
