For about 700 Euros, it is an extremely attractive business package that offers good value for money. Its matte display, while packs just HD resolution (1366 x 768) is ideal for use under direct light. However, its poor black levels make it less ideal for multimedia consumption.
Typing experience is pretty good, but the materials for keys could be better. Fortunately, its touchpad feels top notch. As far as its alternatives are concerned, Samsung NP900X4C is something we would recommend if you do not prefer the Dell brand. Toshiba Z830 is pretty good too.
