Love the laptop!!! But, still trying to get used to windows 8...might take awhile.
Now Happy It Doesn't include Outlook
I'm going to have to download & spend more $ for an up grade(Outlook not included)that could have been included. Dell not forthcoming-same issue as others and sending bits at a time confusing- case, lid, laptop still no software It looked like over 1,800 where sold so hopefully Dell gets it together in Canada quickly! However I can honestly have a "great" experience with the 24/7 Dell Support (which is in India by the way), but Raj the technician was great in assistancing all my tech needs,and when his shift was over, he has to end the call but made a time & arrangement to call me the next day and helpful download what I needed and made me fee a little more confortable. He also did a follow up call a week late to make sure all is well and if I have any furture issues to contace him directly. He left his namer & ID number so he is able to contine with the client/Tech Rep relationship Dell wants for their customer. I'm still "not convinced" Windows 8 was a smart way to go. However time will time !!For all who purchased this deal, you got your money's worth. My friend wanted to buy mine when I was frustrated with the programs as he missed the deal. Right now I am getting a little more comfortable and will keep the Laptop.
Dell Inspiron 17.3"
from Richmond Hill, Ontario
Great Product, Great Price. But shipping is costly for DELL and frustrating for customers. 4 different deliveries by Purolator which we had to go to collect. DELL needs to look into this shipping problem to save $'s in their company profits.
Great deal but.....
This was a great deal, for sure. Only issues I had were, like everyone else said, the shipment came in - in several packages. I had to go to pick up packages a lot. The computer came in one, the software in another (I had to call about this since it was taking forever to show up), the extra cover came in another and the bag came in yet another. The software was easy to load and i've been having fun playing the family games with my son and bf. Finding out how to get the microsoft bundle on my computer took forever. I had noticed on here someone said they got an activiation key - that's when i stopped waiting for another disk and went to my package and found a small flyer type thing with the activation code on it. I tried to get it from the site and ended up just typing Microsoft in the START menu page and when it came up, I clicked on activate my microsoft. Before that I had no idea what to do and searched the microsoft site for a while trying to figure out where I was suppose to go to activate it. I still think the deal is a great one. I like how big the screen is and the colors are sharp. I am satisfied with my deal, I just wish it came together as one set (or even two but not 4 trips to pick things up) and also that it had better directions for activiating microsoft.
Great computer but terrible delivery
I have to agree with other members the computer package came to me separately. Terrible way to ship. The unit and service I got from Dell is terrific. I would recommend this to a friend,
from London, Ontario
I love the size and features. However it has a BIOS problem (I have to switch on off and on again to get it to boot up) And I have great difficulty getting used to Windows 8. Right now I don't like it
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Just What I Needed
from Vancouver Island
I'm very happy with this computer but Windows 8 is a bit of a challenge. I wanted it, I've got it and I will get used to it in time. The 4 stars instead of 5 is because I had to buy an upgrade to Windows 8 Pro in order to get Media Centre. This they didn't say. A couple of other surprises bothered me as well, including the fact that my 24/7 tech support will be voided, if I add certain options myself. Not so pleased with this but very pleased with the computer itself and will work the kinks out of the surprises over time.
seemed like a good deal at the time,,,
I like the look and feel of the computer BUT Still waiting on software and as I use it for work and personal I had to download & $ up grade(Outlook not included)Warranty and help from Dell not forthcoming-same issue as others and sending bits at a time confusing- case, lid, laptop still no software It looked like over 1,800 where sold so hopefully Dell gets it together in Canada quickly!
We're still getting to know each other.
By Queen of Diamonds

This gorgeous laptop, with the pink lid on it now, and I, are still getting to know each other. I think the deal was an excellent one for a 17.3" with all the incredible bells and whistles, for the price but this is my first Windows 8 experience and we're still not best friends however, one day at a time.This disc took forever to arrive after it's world tour and a friend will have to deal with that. I can't get it to do what I think it should do....but I'm sure it will for him.General synopsis....I love the computer, the option of the two lids, the targus bag is amazing. It's like travelling with an office in a bag. It's not a light weight laptop, so I hope the targus is not just another pretty face... it's going to need muscle for this baby.Would I recommend this to a friend, you bet. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get away from wires. I've had a Dell desktop for a few years now and love the machine but hate the wires and the inability to be mobile. This is freedom. Four stars instead of five is only because it's a lot heavier than I expected but it's still freedom and that's what matters.
