Bloatware is nothing - Any time I encounter a DELL laptop (friends, family), I uninstall them all. That will speed-up everything and extend battery life. I'm more concerned by the display issue (viewing angles) and foremost by the inaccess of the buttom chassis. I hate latops that are hard or nearly impossible to access for these reasons:

1. I want to be able to change\upgrade the RAM, hdd and wifi easily.
2. I want to be able to change the TIM on the CPU to a better one (reducing temps)
3. Every laptops cooler gets clogged-up over time with dust - I want easy access to be able to clean it!
