Pros
Great size, Super Easy Set Up, Perfectly Adequate for the Average User
Cons
Speakers could be improved a bit for richer sound - but by no means awful.
• • •

I just purchased this system - primarily because my old custom made XP motherboard went out.
MicroCenter had this particular model on sale for $ 499 !
I had done enough shopping around both in person and on the Internet to know this was a good deal.
I was looking at an HP Model, without TouchScreen, and with only 500MB memory vs. 1 TB, for the same price. The ease of set-up was astounding. I literally had this all in one unit out of the box -
turned on and I was online in under 5 minutes. The system automatically identified and accessed my home WiFi Router as well as my WiFi connected HP Printer !
Even setting up my e-mail was simply a matter of putting in my e-mail password -
no entering IMAP or POP3 server information !
For those who are apprehensive about making the move to the new Windows 8 Tiles Interface....
don't be. It's not nearly as difficult as you might think. AND the best part is that you can easily toggle between a more conventional XP/7 Desktop Screen View if you prefer to work that way !
Perfect for home office and personal use. Love it.

Pros
Dell Inspiron 2330 touch screen set up is easy
Cons
Screen has a haze all over it that is Not repairable
• • •

I made the mistake of ordering the touch screen. I have had it for 5 months and am not able to return it as Dell will not accept it as a returned item. The problem has existed from the start and I just thought it was my old age eye sight not the screen or computer. But I kept straining to read things with the white background and finally asked my wife what she thought. She immediately responded that the screen is blurry.
I called dell and they replaced the LCD - no change. They then returned and replaced the mother board that also had the video card on it. The screen was better but still was blurry with a haze and still difficult for me to read.

I was told by a best buy geek that Dell has placed a covering over the touch screen, probably for its protection, and that that covering is why it is blurry, hazy and not crisp and clear like I would expect. Of course Dell techs deny that there is anything on it but I have seen the difference with other monitors both Dell and Sony and Apple. No comparison, the Dell I have is the worst of the worst.
No doubt there is a problem with this screen and I am too old to keep straining to look at a computer screen every day that I need for work. Dell will not exchange it for the non-touch screen so I guess I will have to throw it into the dumpster and go buy one that has a glass screen with no coverings.
To think I have bought and used many Dells over the years but will never do it again cause they will not take care of the problem.

Pros
Dell 2330 Smooth Setup - new touch interface works well
Cons
Looking forward to older software being aware for the touch experience
• • •

This is my 5 DELL PC purchase and has been the smoothest machine to set up.
The jump to a touch screen when using Windows 8 was a smart choice. I also include both a wireless keyboard and mouse being a long time windows users. I find the tiles interface a great place to casually check email and FB a great experience. The only down side so far is that the Microsoft Office 2010 is desktop centric yet so wish it was a bit more touch aware. But basic functioning is solid with the touch for moving windows around, etc. I bought this unit as it was stated to drive external monitor as I have a recent 24 inch. I am able to connect to it easily with the VGA port only. Note: the HDMI connector is only inbound to the 2330. This was a point I had asked about but got some miss communication before my purchase.

On whole great unit so far, I have had it one week adding device has been smooth even recognizes my older HP printer better that win 7 did. This was a great way to transition from my prior desktop. Final observation spend some time with youtube on the tiles feature of WIN 8 before you purchase. It was easy enough but that upfront made this past week a breeze.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
