Cons: motherboard died
Summary: after 28 days the motherboard died. i took it back to bestbuy and it was repaired under warranty. no problems and running great since. i paid $579 for the i5 processor, 6g ram and 640g hdd. it is a little cheap looking (all plastic) but it doesn't cost $1800. it feels solid, though. it's fast and can multi-task with ease. can't comment on how it would handle games as i'm not into gaming. for things like internet browsing, email and word processing it can't be beat. i just hope it lasts as long as my other dell which i've had for 5 years.
