Started well

 

This laptop was looking great until day 3 when it wouldn't switch on at all - totally dead! I'd left it charging for around 24 hours the first day and then had power plugged in when in use for following two days. This morning it was dead - I suspect...

It worked perfectly from the start. I have an exterior optical drive and downloaded VLC for free and now it plays DVD's. Very light and well put together, as you would expect from Dell. Downloaded Forza Horizon 4 which works perfectly with the X box...

If you do not use with external monitor, that is a perfect laptop. If you want to use with external monitor choose another model.

Trackpad is somewhat unresponsive and sometimes cannot differentiate right and left clicks (however this is irrelevant to me as I have a mouse)

Big massive screen.

It randomly freezes and there's nothing I can do apart from force shutting it down by holding the power button.
