HD is fine to me, but I think everything should have Gig ethernet if it is going to have a jack nowadays

I'll criticize Dell in general.  Please: for your own sanity: buy a Mac.  Even a used Mac (~$400 on eBay) is better than this machine.....

Is it fair to compare Windows laptop vs Mac laptop? $279 vs $400?
 

My first computer was a Dell and except for a few years wit a Compaq PC I got for FREE from FreePC.com (they thought selling ads on PC would be enough), it's been Dell desktops ever since. In spring 2015 I got a Dell XPS 13, and the keyboard had to replaced. The battery didn't last half of what reviews said (though I could never figure out why... Running Youtube videos was a lot less intensive). Then the screen died about half a year after warranty ended, about a year and a hal of inconsistent usage. It really broke my trust. (My desktop finally died at about 10 years old.) Repairing it would cost almost the whole thing.

I suggest getting a cheap extended warranty (your credit card may offer an extra year. And not expecting to use it for long after warranty ends.

make you a deal..you buy what YOU want and we will buy what we want,,what are you an apple sales rep.

  Getting 4gb memory for $40 is a good deal... for you
 

At this point, I would suggest avoiding an i3 processor, that includes all flavors of AMD's processors too. i3's just fall flat when doing anything other than the very basics. Spend another couple hundred bucks, get an i5 with a bit more ram. It'll be worth the payoff.

$40 for touch and 4gig ram up to u
