Out of the box the wireless connection would intermittently drop about every 10 seconds. I'd be lucky if it lasted a good few minutes. Tech support tried to help but couldn't do anything I hadn't already tried (updating all the drivers, even manually downloading them from their website). If anything, it only made the computer crash more when I tried to access the wireless network. 4 times this thing froze in the span of less than 24 hours. It took 7/+ hours to install the windows updates. My Asus took less than 1 hour.
The sound quality is atrocious. Connecting to my bluetooth speaker somehow made the sound quality even worse. I've used my bluetooth speaker with my Asus and my phone with beautiful sound quality, so it was definitely an issue with the Dell.
Screen seemed flimsy. Easily bent. Poor construction.
Pros: Good battery life, light weight.
I ended up purchasing another Asus instead with an i3 processor. Runs much faster than this i5 Dell. Equivalent battery life. Not as lightweight but worth it for the fact that it actually functions.
