Will Power Off Now Then
Can't Think Of One
This laptop has a number of major drawbacks.<br /><br />It is unreliable, as it will just power off now and then.<br /><br />Dell INSISTS it is a software issue, and instructs me to reset my computer to factory conditions – ALL MY DATA and PROGRAMS gone. That is NOT a solution. In fact, this is ALWAYS their solution to EVERYTHING every time I called for service, about 6 times. After that, I gave up. They REFUSE to admit any problems with the unit. The service people end up sounding like parrots – It's a software issue, it's a software issue, it's a software issue. Braaawwkkk.<br /><br />I have had crazy cursor repositioning when typing, and that is SO AGGRAVATING. Again, It's a software issue, it's a software issue, it's a software issue.<br /><br />The dell dock at the top of the screen will not disappear automatically. I have to click something in it and then click somewhere else.<br /><br />The function key replacements for multimedia control show their status sometimes on the screen and sometimes not. It is intermittent.<br /><br />Dell got rid of the [BREAK] key, so [CTRL][BREAK] is not possible, which is necessary to stop some programs.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
