    "I was afraid to run Linux on this but it was a breeze. Windows 10 isn't bad but this laptop is capable of running a different OS. Its compact but once you start working on it, it feels like full size. Its worth the price. I love the screen display. Its a fast computer too. Only gripe is that its hard to keep clean because of the color but that's pretty much a non issue."

    "I am not happy with this laptop. I bought it to use for Linux. It is a 13-inch laptop and looks really nice. However, it is not living up to the standard I expect form a Dell. The battery does not last as long as it should. The wireless connectivity is terrible. On top of all this it shuts of sometimes, for no reason."

    "If you're a hardcore gamer who likes portability, like me, this notebook's a must have. It has a 13 inch screen, which is better than playing games on an iPhone. As for drawbacks, you may not be able to use it for some resource-heavy games, but you can "juice it up" a bit because it's expandable: up to 16 gigs of RAM and 512 gig HD."
