Hello,

Thanks for your question about the Inspiron 15R (5521) laptop. This new computer should come with a 1 month trial of Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium software. This package includes:

• Office for the entire household on up to five PCs and Windows 8 tablets, Macs.
• Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access.
• An extra 20 GB of online storage in SkyDrive (27 GB total) for anywhere access to your documents.
• 60 minutes of Skype calls each month to phones in 40+ countries.

In the off-chance that there is an error in the listing and Office 365 is not already installed, you can go to Microsoft's Office 365 website and download your own 1 month trial for free! Microsoft uses the name “Office 365” for products that include cloud services, such as additional SkyDrive online storage, Skype minutes for home use, Lync web conferencing or Exchange Online hosted email for businesses. Cloud services are features that are enabled over the Internet. Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices.
All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis, annually. Active subscribers will receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product. When you activate your trial, you can try out all that the new Office 365 has to offer and see if you would like pay and use for it when the trial expires.

Hope this helps,

Hello,

As it turns out, this Inspiron 15R does not have a backlit keyboard as an option. Currently, the only Inspiron laptops to have this feature available are the Inspiron 15z Ultrabook and the 15R/17R Special Editions. You should check out the XPS, Latitude or Alienware lines of laptops, for this feature to be available on more systems.

We just released the XPS 12 Ultrabook, that has a convertible screen and backlit keys as a standard feature. It is worth checking out!

Hope this helps!

The computer did not come with any software for word processing, spreadsheets, etc. You can buy those as separate purchases from WalMart.com ... and they're on sale.

Hello,

Thanks for your question about the Inspiron 15R laptop. Dell has not released official battery life times for this particular build. Looking at independent reviews of this laptop, they state that it gets between 4-5 hours of charge under normal conditions, like web surfing via a Wi-Fi connection.

Battery operating time varies, depending on operating conditions. Operating time is significantly reduced when you perform operations including, but not limited to, the following:

Using DVD, DVD-R, and CD-RW drives
Using wireless communications devices, PC Card™ devices, or USB devices
Using high-brightness display settings, 3D screen savers, or other power-intensive programs such as 3D games
Running the computer in maximum performance mode
