In my vast outlet experience, S&D systems are usually quite good. And when not, I just call Dell in 7 days and they allow refund, or replace them.

It is a good idea to keep the following link for future reference (and grab the downloads while still available!):

When updating Hard drive or wanting a clean install, take a look at the driver compilation and notes in this post over at notebookreview (post #93, third down from top) This short guide also fixes the issue of the touchpad remaining on when in tablet mode: http://forum.notebookreview.com/d...-a-10.html

If you have issues with responsiveness of touchscreen or lags (out of the box):
The first thing to do to connect to WIFI and then run windows update manually (Control Panel->Windows Update->Check For Updates...once it finds them, then click download/install). It will also do a whole lot of disk access (even without windows update) right out of the box, and that KILLS the responsiveness.
But once it gets done doing all it's updates and configs the disk access should drop considerably and it will then be more responsive.
To see the disk activity, go into task manager. You will likely see it doing ALOT of disk stuff (app configs, etc) and pushing the disk to 100% utilization. If you run windows update and then let it just run for a few hours (yeah, hours) it should settle down significantly (ie: responsiveness should be much quicker and more consistant).

Was looking for an HP Stream, since this far exceeds it, and has a better processor (Pentium > Celeron), for just $50 more, I get a better built with touchscreen PC, success!

I googled:

Celeron - 1400 vs Pentium - 2580

and there weren't any comparisons? Which one is faster and has longer battery?

Also, what's the difference with the model that costs $20 more? I couldn't tell from the description?

"In my vast outlet experience, S&D systems are usually quite good. And when not, I just call Dell in 7 days and they allow refund, or replace them."

... but not without first making you spend a couple of hours on the phone and having tech support try to troubleshooot first.... if you don't allow them to trouble shoot then 15% restocking fee WILLL be applied.

been there, done that.

Link 1CPU Comparison [cpu-world.com]

Intel Celeron N2840 vs Intel Pentium N3530.. basically quadcore optimized for battery life, vs a Celeron.

If you are on the fence, do not even doubt it, you can upgrade the SSD and probably the RAM here and get a beastly portable machine for under $350.

HP Stream

* Better promised battery life (about 8 hrs)
* Slower Processor (Celeron N2840 [notebookcheck.net]
* Probably un-updateable RAM (and perhaps SSD)

Dell Inspiron 11

* Actual tested battery life about 6:15 hours
* Better processor, a Quadcore (as according to this Link 1CPU Comparison [cpu-world.com])
*Upgradeable SSD and RAM (Link [dell.com]
* Better IPS panel and touchscreen/tablet usage
* Not blue or Magenta (for those that like more sober colors)

I was originally looking for a Chromebook, but given how cheap 8.1 laptops with real processors have gotten, I find it hard to see why you would go for a Chromebook, or even the stream considering this deal.

Add an SSD to this PC, and you will probably get 30mins more out of the same battery (SSD's are great battery savers)

Go for the N3530, which is the Quadcore for more futureproofing -> PC Mag Review - Inspiron 11 3147 [pcmag.com]

For the $18 more(S&D) you want to get the 4 core(Quad) Pentium N3530 (IMO)

Why? Poor touchscreen? Keyboard?

FP worthy IMO!
