Model Number: Dell 15R, i7, 8GB RAM, 1 TB HD, No Full Office
"The one I received had a spot of "dead" pixels on the screen - so it's going back to Costco. Other than that - Fast processor. Great amount of RAM and HD space. Windows 8 will take some getting used to."
Pros: 1 tb harddrive i7 wireless display to tv., good quality audio cheap.
Model Number: Dell Inspiron 15R Laptop, Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM 2.2GHz
"I really like number of features it delivered in such a reasonable price. Like 1 TB harddrive with i7 processor. Its super fast and i loved watching hi-def videos on it. The audio is quite good too. All in all a nice laptop to own!!"
"The wide mousepad is troublesome- while typing, it's very easy for the palm to touch it and moves the cursor in another place.kept going back & forth..overall I still love the rest of the specs... returned it back to Costco and just try the other ones..."
Model Number: Dell Inspiron 15R Laptop, Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM 2
"Got this laptop for Xmas and I love it. I already upgraded it to 16GB of RAM (specs say 8GB is the max however that is incorrect.. 16GB is working great for me). Windows 8 takes some getting used to but it's fine. The touch pad is large but if it gets in your way use a wireless mouse and disable it. Then you'll have no problems. I have no difficulty avoiding the touch pad when I type. This laptop is an excellent value."
"Purchased this Dell laptop from Costco for Christmas gift. When opened, the keyboard was broke as keys kept popping off. Contacted Dell for support. After much run around, all I got was more runaround. Customer service manager basically said I could wait for a tech to come and fix it at their leisure or return the product. SO I guess now I will be working with Costco's customer service because Dell's is the pits. This is the first and last Dell product I will buy."
"The laptop looks like a cheap plastic toy computer for kids. I wasn't impressed with the quality at all. Dell has progressively gone down in terms of quality but this was a stretch. I think to make the configuration available for less than $700, they had to cut costs somewhere else. But no point of having a high powered laptop which will break into pieces if it falls on ground. I returned the item the next day, mainly due to it's construction. COSTCO was VERY GOOD and friendly. They were super fast and returned all my money"
"You can't review this machine without considering what you're getting for the price. This is as good a value I have seen for a quad-core laptop, combined with 8GM RAM and a full 1TB drive. Nothing else comes close. Geekbench 32-bit score of 9314. Windows 8 is not so great, but you can get it to work like W7. The main downside is the built-in display of 1366 x 768. However, just hook this up to a 1080P monitor (also purchased from Costco.com) and you've got yourself a high-power workstation. For the price, pretty amazing. I'm not going to use this much as a true mobile laptop, but more a basic home PC with excellent performance."
"This computer was really nice. It was so fast, the sound was pretty good. The display was eh but ok. It was however very bulky and not very sleek. but still nice at the same time. However, the first day there was a squeaky noise coming from the trackpad clicker. it got so bad that the computer was just bothersome to use. then on about the 4th day, it got very stiff. and then by night time...CRACK! It broke. Its a shame that such a high powered computer, can be plagued by something as simple as poor workmanship. Thank god for costco's return policy! I most likely won't be buying dell again and i'll be sticking with apple/samsung."
"I purchased this computer on thanksgiving day and it arrived on 11/30/12. This what I was looking on a computer all the specs and around this price range. I looked everywhere and could not find one with all this in this price range. It took me a few hrs to figure out windows 8 but ones you figure it out its perty cool. I was very pleased with the quickness of the computer it download pages in a instant even though I don't have a very fast Internet out there it's a 3 g of speed. When you brows to fotos of Facebook is super quick. So far I'm happy with my purshased so far we'll se what the future brings.remenber you have 3 months to test it out."
Pros: speedy enough, decent quality, nice screen, large (1 tb) hard drive
Cons: dell support slipping, keyboard problem that dell can not solve, ms office not included, windows 8 horrific!, random loss of wi-fi connectivity
Model Number: Dell Inspiron 15R Laptop, Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM 2.2GHz
"Been a Dell customer for decades now. Got some issues with their support. Only options are: 1) replace hardware (ie keyboard) or 2) reimage the computer to as-built state. Nothing else.
Comments on the laptop: * Bigger than expected but not overly heavy. * Nice screen for the price * Lacks MS Office * More than speedy enough for most people * build quality a hair better than last version of the pc
Cons: 1)others mentioned this - lose wifi connection time to time. strange 2) windows 8 horrific! 3) problem with right <SHIFT> key - acts like <control> key - 2 weeks working with support (4+ hours so far) 2 keyboards and motherboard - still not fixed (returning laptop to Costco for new one)
Unsure if the keyboard problem I am having is a windows issue or Dell. Going to try another one before passing judgment
I would give 5 stars if I didn't have the keyboard problem. Read other reviews with other keyboard/touchpad problems."
Cons: faulty touchpad. very poor screen resolution.

"Purchased the same Dell model 15R (but core i-5 not core i-7) from another online computer store on BF 2012. Had to return it due to the faulty touchpad. The cursor became jumpy and erratic when the laptop was connected to power adapter, or not connected but was near another laptop. Dell sent an onsite technician to replace the whole touchpad palmrest circuirtboard. But that didn't fix the problem. The techinican had 0 idea what went wrong. I had to return the laptop to the store. Got a full refund. Then purchased the same Dell 15R (core i-7 8G 1TB) from Costco thinking it would be a good one this time and hoping to give Dell another chance. Unfortunately, the laptop is having the exact same issue. Called Dell and they suggested the same 'solution' - replacing the touch palmrest. I told them ah ah no no. I am returning this laptop. Will never buy any Dell laptop again. BTW, Dell customer/technical support staffs were friendly and helpful. No problem dealing with them."
