    What will you be using the laptop to do, school/work, gaming, hyperv?

    Looking at the specs though 8GB is nice because, that gives you some space to have more apps running, and works well with hyperv
    and i5 is also good in terms of speed for games and emulation, and overall processing speed
    it has an intel hd graphics which I know is good for emulation graphics of Wii along with the i5, not sure if that is that great with hi-end grphics intense games

    I use windows 8, I have not tried 10 yet

    Some of these Dell Laptops have a mini sata port (mSata) I think it is called, you can upgrade that port (if one is present) with another drive but the drive has to be a mini sata SSD which is much smaller than the regulr 2.5 inch SSD drive
    Another maybe, is the 1TB drive might be a Seagate SSHD hybrid between SS and HD
    I would say to download the user/service manual and take a look through it to see the actual hardware inside

    Otherwise Dell is an OK brand, care the laptop by running it on a flat surface which allows ventilation.
    Do not leave the adapter plugged in for days, with the battery in. It is better to take out the dell battery, and plug the laptop in a ups, if you are going to leave it unattended for days, and make sure it is ventilated.

    The price for what you are getting seems OK since you are getting a 1080p display with touch screen

    Dell seems to get more sketchy about their spec, I could not find the brand name of the hard drive

    Anyway, my opinion is , it seem like a nice laptop

    I'm going to make the purchase on Monday of the Inspiron 15 i5558-5716SLV from Amazon. I own a NOKIA Asha 306 on Digicel; which I'm using currently to write this. Will I encounter any issues preventing me from making that transaction? I've made many purchases from Amazon using the same credit card in the past. Shipping with Mailpac.

    Amazon is very lenient with credit cards and shipping addresses so don't worry. Your card could be from the Jamaica and you can ship to Japan.

    Your only problem with shipping to Jamaica is going to be with the charges customs is going to slap on you. Your best bet is to have it shipped to someone in the US who is coming or knows someone coming to Jamaica and have them take it. That being said you can have multiple shipping addresses for your Amazon account.

    I didn't make the purchase on Monday but I'll on Friday; I had to cut my order in two. Give me an estimate of how much it would cost to ship through Mailpac? It's valued at $535.00...

    I got it, the processor is not the one in the specs, the discription is Intel Core i5 5200U I got the 5250U opperating @ 1.6Ghz dual core. The package costed me $12,000.00 after much deliberation. I shipped through Mailpac.
