March 28, at Somewhat heavy for a thin-and-light notebook; native screen resolution makes icons and text look small; fingerprint reader decreases mouse button size. I agree that Dell should have publicly recalled all of these machines regardless of ownership, location or warranty status because it is likely all units will fail in time costing owners lots of money.
