One of the top sellers on TigerDirect
Very good user reviews on TigerDirect
Most powerful processor available
Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
Uses conventional harddrive. Higer power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
Battery life is unknown.
Advanced GPU sufficient for latest, most demanding games fluently at medium detail settings at HD resolution
GPU is not suitable for most demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high detail settings and HD resolution
17.3" screen suitable as desktop replacement and gaming; not ideal for portability
Economy display with resolution of 1600 x 900; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, programming etc
Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)
Processor is more powerful than necessary for typical tasks such as multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing. Could downgrade to save money

The computer arrived in good conditions. It is very fast.The only problem that I have is the noise of the cooler fan, but I download from the webpage of Dell an update for the Bios and now it is fixedLaptop out of the box was great, I purchased it on sale for 699! However after a month of owning the laptop starting randomly losing power and turning off. Contacted tiger direct and since I had ownThe wide open always-on fan is the result of an old outdated bios. Dell will remotely install bios version 7 or higher that will fix the problem. Win 8 requires a learning curve, but it can be annoyinMy son is so happy with it. He told me that it is very fast and all the games he plays run so fast.
