Hi guys. I am currently looking for a new laptop for college/personal. I've been looking for a few months, and have pretty much narrowed down my specs and required options.
15.6 in. touchscreen.
6th gen i5 or A10 processor. (or higher)
I'd prefer a full HD screen and a backlight keyboard, but not deal-breakers as the above stuff is. I may do some gaming, but definitely not the primary purpose here, so as long as the graphics card is adequate, I'm happy.
With these specs, I have narrow options. I have a $500 budget. However, I found what seems to be a perfect fit.
This has all the things I want, and is in budget. The thing that is making me hesitate is the reviews. About 50% love it, but the other 50% all detail catastrophic failures. I looked up the whole Dell I5 line, and the same reviews persist.
My question is whether this model has known problems, or whether these reviews are something to scrap the model on. I haven't found anything really comparable, so I'd like to know what you all think about this model.
