The clean-slate design and trialware-free desktop are immediate pleasures that are soon accompanied by solid performance and some surprising media centre-style capabilities.

No trialware, Dell Support application, speakers, Dell MediaDirect, excellent battery life

Viewing angle on screen, no Dell Chat support currently (according to the Dell Web site)

Battery didn’t snap in as tight as it should ; Notebook lid easily smudges and shows your fingerprints ; Dell’s always hard to get a hold of

The day after I purchased the notebook, the price dropped by $50!  So Immediately I went to the Dell small business site, and tried to chat with someone from Dell small business.  I was connected with a guy from Dell home, who was unable to help me...
