Advantages Impressive construction and appearance, Laptop and Tablet combination, Gadget filled
Disadvantages Delicate, Slightly pricey, Limited memory
Reading very many negative comments and bad experiences with this new laptop/tablet made me very cautious to purchase this product. However, its appearance alone won me over, and thankfully it has turned out to be a worthy buy. Granted, this Dell laptop has it's disadvantages and fall-downs, although for a busy, business-like woman like myself, I found this laptop to be an absolute treat. Primarily, I was impressed by the dexterous technique of the construction of this laptop; I thought it was extrememly clever how it could be transformed from a laptop into a tablet by a simple flick of the screen. Therefore, this laptop is evidently impressive for gadget lovers with the available touch-screen options, the option to download apps and combination of a tablet and a notebook-like laptop. Additionally, after hearing many complaints about the slowness of the laptop, I was expecting to be regularly frustrated. However, I have not yet experienced extreme slowness and can safely say that, for a very small laptop, it runs extremely quickly, although occasionallly it can be notably slow when there are mutiple tabs open.
On the other hand, every product has it's negatives, including the Dell Inspiron Duo. Although the laptop being very small and portable can be seen as a positive, it's delicateness seems to panick me. The laptop is so flexible that it has me treating it like a new-born; I was scared to let my brother even come near it in fear that it would break just by his touch alone! As well as this, the touch-screen isn't as precise as what I'd hoped it to be. For example, expecially when typing into small spaces, I have found myself resorting back to using the touchpad as the touch-screen mouse sometimes isn't accurate enough and occasionaly selects something unwanted. Finally, I was disappointed with the limited memory space that is available on the laptop. However, this may not be the case with everyone; I've seen many comments that are satisfied with the laptop's memory, although I personally had to store the documents and pictures from my old laptop onto a hard drive.
Costing around £400, I couldn't view the price as either a positive nor a negative, only an average, expected price for a good, workable laptop. Considering that this is a tablet and laptop collaboration, however, the cost could be seen as a fairly good deal for this 2-in-1 technology triumph.
Overall, in my opinion this product is definately recommendable and a successful buy for this exictable piece of technology with it's unique 21st century features.
