Screen size and laptop performance.

Battery life is terrible. So only good if you plan to have it plugged into mains power all the time. Would have been better also if the battery was user replaceable.

DELL Inspiron 17 5770 17.3" Laptop - Silver

 

Good to have the separate number keyboard. The screen size is good and the finish makes it easier to see as there isn't much glare.

Would have been nice to have more plain usb ports. The sub ports were a bit stiff to start with and it was difficult to get the plugs in.
