Worst Laptop Ever

Pros: sound
Cons: everything apart the sound
Model Number: Dell Inspiron 17R Laptop
"The wake-up process is awful after the sleep mode. You must push power button at least 2-3 times because the screen is black with F12 option which doesn't work. The base of the laptop is not flat, and the front-right part moves vertically when you work on Numeric Keypad. The solution is- to put something under the laptop. Windows 8 works very slow with Intel I7 processor and 8Gb memory, that is weird (it works perfect on my Toshiba with Intel I5 processor and 4GB memory). The quality of HD Camera is poor. My Toshiba's 0.3MP camera works better than this one. The keybord is inconvenient, especially the arrows(they are too small and closer). The only thing I loved on this laptop is the sound, it is a very nice. This laptop must be returned back.
I've just ordered an HP ENVY dv7t Quad Laptop. I hope this one will be better than Dell.

Bad right out of the box

Pros: sorry none
Cons: bloatware faulty hardware, bad dell software for backup disk creation, dell phone support is poor
Model Number: 17R Laptop, Intel® Core? i7-3612QM 2 - Item# 702439
"Dell used to have good quality, but this laptop was bad out of the box. First there is considerable bloatware installed on the system. Next, you are tasked with creating backup repair disks. The dell software provided spun for over 3 hours "initializing", reporting possible errors on the "C" drive "and /or" the dvd burner. Run chkdisk, run diagnostics. Also, the eject button the cd burner did not work, the only way to eject disks was to use the software control. Dell support was lousy on the phone. Costco Concierge tried to help me out, but eventually it was decided best to box this defective system up and return it.
I've just ordered an HP instead."

Excellent Laptop for the $$$

Pros: speed, storage, display quality!, processor i7 excellent!, fast blu-ray player, on and on
Cons: none
Model Number: Dell Inspiron 17R Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM 2.2GHz, Blu-Ray Player
"I have to completely disagree with other reviewers who gave the Inspirion 17R a poor rating. I rate it 5 of 5 in every catagory. I must admit I converted the operating system back to Windows 7 Ulitimate, simply because I'm not a Windows 8 fan. Excellent speed, keyboard touch, response time, storage space (1TB!), pre-installed software. The wake up time from sleep is also very fast (but you have to know how to set the settings!)... All in all, a great purchase. All around better than my 2009 model Toshiba P505 laptop, which was 4/5 IMO. Also, i7 is the best processor on the market! (IMO)"

Great for old people, no joke

Pros: high speed, can handle a 90 year old, included software, blu-ray player, great specs for the price
Cons: windows 8, very slight chance of the dell issue mentioned
"I helped my 90 year old Grandfather shop for a laptop. He gave me the specs and the budget and we got this great deal. The added bonuses are the 1 year anti-virus protection and the Microsoft Office.
There was an issue within a month of purchase. It failed to start up. After reading forums on this particular Dell we learned it was a rare issue that some people had. Dell released an update that would resolve the issue, only we couldn't get the laptop to turn on and download it. I called Costco Customer Service. They processed an exchange return with no problem or even much questioning for the matter. Very friendly and helpful Customer Service! If it was another competitor, I would have expected some hoops to jump thru. I would recommend buying a laptop from Costco.com... I was nervous to have a computer shipped to me like others could be, but resolving any possible issue that could happen is very easy."

17R Great desktop replacement option

Pros: great screen hard disk size and processor, available port quantity, usb 3.0, extending mfg warranty another year!!!
Cons: outlook 2010 had to be purchased separately.
Model Number: Dell Inspiron 17R Laptop, Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM 2.2GHz, Blu-Ray Player
"This laptop was a great purchase for me and my wife. She needed a new computer and could not decide on giving up size and performance on Ultras or going big.
We decided on the 17R because the only traveling she will be doing is around the house, Office, Living Room, Dining Room. It has a great screen, good size hard disk and good processor. It also has Windows 8. Windows 8 was easy to get started and easy to be productive. There was some getting use to the new style but with that done, everything works. I will mention that I had to download new drivers for our HP printer which did not automatically configure itself.
