This is one of my best Dell computers EVER. What makes it the best was the sales and tech support personnel at Staples.

They did not just sell me a computer. They helped me pick out the one that fit my computing needs and then gave me enough information to make an educated decision about the extras that would make it more functional and for a longer period.

They gave me virus protection plan options as well as plans that cover the loss, breaking and damaging to my computer whether it is through accidental mishap or manufacturing defects.

I love my new computer speed and functionality!!!

It has proven to be the best computer I have purchased--with most of the credit going to the tech support services assistance I received from the Staples Tech Support Staff.

THANK YOU!!!

I've owned some bad machines in my day: a TRS 80, a Renault Encore - but I have never hated a machine the way I hate this one. Oh, how I hate it.

I upgraded from a Vostro running Vista, which elicited snickers from the teenagers at the Staples help desk. Guess what? It was notably faster than this Inspiron running 8.1. After six weeks, I no longer care which is to blame - Dell says Microsoft, Microsoft says Dell. Here's what matters: getting things done. My productivity is notably down: count the days I've lost having the machine back at the help desk, hours dealing with the black screen, the minutes it takes to open each Office product. (I can make a cup of coffee in the time it takes to open Word each morning.) I have to reboot at least twice a day. Basic websites (eg the Detroit Free Press) send this machine into a wheezing coma. This is so astonishingly bad: now I understand why Staples won't take it back.

As for the help desk, I don't need a 12-year-old Harry Potter lookalike to explain that I "just don't get" this machine. I'm not a gamer. I'm not into playing movies. I bought a tool to do a particular job: online research and writing. This tool doesn't work. I told Staples what I wanted to do with it and why before I bought it. I read reviews. (Apparently this machine works much better in India, at least among Staples buyers.) Yet within five days I was back because it wouldn't connect to any Wi-Fi, any place, any time. That's not a computer. That's a very expensive doorstop.

Some people will claim everything will be solved if you install a button that returns the software to the 7 start. The start, while annoying, isn't the problem. It's the extremely poor function of the machine when it's running.

I can't get around using Windows (Linux and other sharewares are not an option for me); despite good experiences in the past, I can say this is almost certainly my last Dell. Six weeks in, the screen ought to light up when you turn it on, and it should be capable of getting through an 8-hour day without rebooting. Even the TRS 80 could handle that.

So far so good

Comments about Dell Inspiron 15.6-Inch Laptop (I3542-8333BK):

Nice computer for the price. Bought it mostly for digital scrapbooking so I wanted something that I could have many windows open without slowing it down. So far so good. Only downside is I don't like Windows 8 and need to learn the workarounds for it.

We have Dell products at work and I bought my son a Dell a last year for game playing and all have worked wonderfully.

Excellent Buy, Excellent Price

By Beachik

Comments about Dell Inspiron 15.6-Inch Laptop (I3542-8333BK):

This laptop is a replacement for an 8-year old Dell Inspiron, which was a workhorse in it's day, and died after a long and productive life.

Incredible video clarity, great video streaming, excellent performance so far. Purchase price was $200 less through Staples than Lenovo and other competitive products. Based on size (footprint) alone, it's almost unfair to call it a laptop. Don't plan on taking it on coach on a flight -- screen is huge.

Areas for Dell to Improve:
- Packaging for shipping was very skimpy. 1 strip of bubble bags. I'm surprised it wasn't damaged in shipping.
- Two USB ports on the left deck are too close to one another. Difficult to seat two devices side by side.
- Keyboard does not feel ergonomic; it's set too far back against the screen.

Microsoft -- When is Windows 10 going to be released? You'll please many customers if they don't have to deal with simple-minded dancing tiles.

Comments about Dell Inspiron 15.6-Inch Laptop (I3542-8333BK):

This is a great computer I will use to replace my tired desktop. Didnt really need touch screen , but at the price it was a great deal. Cheaper (on sale) than Dell website for a similar machine. My roommates were so impressed,
they each bought one. We now all use the same wireless printer. No cables strung up all over the house.

Comments about Dell Inspiron 15.6-Inch Laptop (I3542-8333BK):

I am very happy with this laptop. The screen size, processor, memory and storage are exactly what I was looking for. The sales person at staples was knowledgable and very helpful. I had to order it and it arrived within 24 hours, which was really great. The price point was very good as well.
