    IMO the Metabox is a much better deal. I've got one and it's awesome.

      How long have you had yours for and how would you grade the build quality?

        About 2 months and the build quality is good. No real flex and the keyboard is fairly quiet. Speed is awesome. While the SSD is on the slower side, you can upgrade it if you really want. I didn't and use that as a boot drive, and have another faster one for my games. Works perfectly.

        Sorry about the delayed reply, didn't get notifications of your message.

      Maybe, but the Dell has some advantages on specs:

      1. Metabox SSD is a slow one, Dell's might be better but I'm not sure. $99 upgrade at Metabox to a fast Samsung SSD.
      2. Dell's WiFi likely better, $29 upgrade at Metabox.
      3. No Windows license at Metabox.
      4. No onsite warranty at Metabox, $75 upgrade and it looks like they pickup your PC rather than work onsite.

      The Metabox does have double the RAM though.

    I have the exact same series with the i5, and here are my observations:

    1. Fan is noisy when on load. Google other reviews on this.
    2. Fingerprint sensor sucks big time. 50/50 chance of reading. Can’t enable face recognition to unlock.
    3. With a D6000 docking station, some games won’t load unless you default the screen back to the laptop unit’s one.
    4. Build quality is ok, but my screen is not level with the plastic housing (it’s out by 0.5mm). Not a biggie to warrant changeover, but disappointed how this can occur on a 7000 series.

    For the price, would I get it again? Probably not. Would I get another Dell model - highly likely (since I have had really bad experiences with HP, ACER, Toshiba and IBM).

    The one thing to upgrade after you buy it - upgrade the RAM to 32GB. Please note some RAM modules won’t work on this machine.

    Being a 7000 series, the “premium” price really isn’t justified.

      I got one for work and after a year's use you will get more problems.

      1. The charging port becomes loose and the charger keeps falling out.
      2. Says plugged in but not charging after the loose charger for a while.
      3. Wireless card sucks big time. I have my Bluetooth mouse and earbuds connected at the same time and there is lag, constant dropouts, bad quality connection when used with Skype and every so often a complete PC freeze. If it doesn't freeze the PC it will make it so nothing connected via Bluetooth functions unless you restart.
      4. Terrible keyboard.

      Would I buy Dell again, definitely not. This was their premium laptop and I am not happy at all.

        My thoughts after 3 months:

        1 and 2: Seems OK so far. Have had similar problems with other laptops so don't think it's unusual.
        3. Seems fine to me.
        4. Seems OK to me, I think the ThinkPad I had before was better but their newest model was not good enough specs for me…

      D6000 dock is a DisplayLink USB video card. You would want a Thunderbolt dock for anything more complicated than spreadsheets.

      I have the same laptop as the listing.

      1. I think the fan noise is fine and preferable to having it overheat.
      2. I agree the fingerprint sensor isn't very good, but I have been able to learn to get it working (e.g. use certain fingers at certain angle).
      3. Seems to work ok with the WD19 dock.
      4. Build quality on mine seems fine.

      I upgraded the RAM to 32 GB with the regular crucial sticks. Other things to note is there is no 2.5 inch drive slot but there is an extra nvme slot.

      This is the lightest laptop I could find with the same specs (think it is around 1.6 kg), and I needed the option of next-day international warranty that pretty much only Dell can provide.

    These were about $120 cheaper not long ago
