      HP vs Dell?

        • +3

          Dell imo. Good support, really good support. Had a cracking hinge, they came to my apartment within 2 days and fixed it on the spot at no charge.

          • @Void: When was this? I got a dell laptop in May with issues from day 1. Will be more than 2 months before they have fixed it (stated parts shortage… for a new laptop, that they are still selling as in stock…)

            • @lethological: Late last year they fixed it.

            • @lethological: We've used Dells at work for around 8 years now, and its always been next day for support, but I always go with the Pro support, well worth it.

          • @Void: Really? I've been waiting for 3 months to get mine replaced

            • @subbeh: I don't know how you initiated it, but I created a forum post on Dell's site and was eventually sent someone over to come and repair it. It was an Inspiron and I didn't pay for extra warranty so nothing special there. Maybe they really are busy or I was just lucky af.

        Dell. I've worked on both and can never get the hp's to go fast. I'm on an ancient dell now that still faster than most new laptops I see in store - although that's mostly due to the software environment. I only have what I consider essential running - this is a lot of work initially, but it lasts for years with just some maintenance now and then.

        both hp and dell come with their own crap bloatware - I got rid of them piecemeal, thinking some might be useful. Now there is nothing left - none of it was useful. Barebones windows (no cortana or touchscreen or facial recognition or any of that crap) and programs that I need. As well as firewall and anti virus, driver updater, various utilities.

        • +6

          So basically you just wipe & reinstall windows every 6 months, like the rest of us.

          • @hypie: No because Windows comes with its own bloatware. Use something like ShutUp10

      HP is trash imo. Every HP laptop i've had has either broken down or overheated.

    • i am using Hp atm got it form GOOD GUYS when it was on special for $1004 . it is a good machine run really well. Battery life is bit on a down side. I am getting 4-5 hours on battery.

    • It has Windows 10 Home in S mode.

      Windows 10 in S mode is a version of Windows 10 that's streamlined for security and performance, while providing a familiar Windows experience. To increase security, it allows only apps from the Microsoft Store, and requires Microsoft Edge for safe browsing.

      • My understanding is that you can switch from s mode to home but then you can't go back.

      • DATA ONLY?! My $959 Inspiron 14 from last year can charge, so why can't this?

    Does this stack with the code though?

    • no

    • Is this just a fancy name for a TN panel? If so no thanks!

      • If it was an IPS panel they'd tell you, if they don't tell you they're hiding their shitty screen. I could be wrong so do your research.

        • Dell confirmed this uses IPS panel. They use different name like wva panel.
          I have received from last deal which was 100 dollars more expensive than this deal.
          I can tell you the panel is ok if not great, definitely better than 3000 series tn panel.

          • @Apue: Why the hell would they call it WVA when IPS is what it is and it's the best?

            • @Void: Looks like WVA is a type of VA panel, so neither TN or IPS. Better viewing angles than TN but worse colour accuracy than IPS.

              • @pjsum: I was gonna (profanity) say why would they hide the fact that they use the best panel type, it sounds like Apue was told that it is comparable to an IPS panel, which it really isn't.

      • I have this same laptop, just a few gens older. My model, at least, is not IPS. It's a pretty crappy TN. The colours are… really bad.

      55% sRGB If you thought those cheaper Ryzen laptops with their 65% sRGB screens were bad… this manages to be worse

      • Yeah this definitely ain't IPS.

  • Look like a good deal. How does this i7-1065G7 compare with new ryzen laptop processors? Should i bit on this or keep waiting?

  • +3

    Great price. Crazy to consider a Surface Go 2 can be near the same price….

  • Does this one have good battery life? My current Dell Vostro has about 7 hours span.

    • +3

      probably not, this laptop only comes with 42 WHr battery

  • Is there anything similarly priced for a 14" laptop?

  • +5

    IPS display, however it only covers ~54% of sRGB. Going to be very dull/grey looking. No bright colours. Fine for browsing/MS Office, terrible for gaming, movies etc.

    • I couldn't find a reference to IPS, just wide angle viewing.

      Also couldn't find a reference to weight.

      So much up selling on Dell. Sure would confuse those with little PC knowledge.

    • Have you found any deals for laptops with decent display? All the ones on sale seem to have ca 50% sRGB

    • I have this same laptop, just a few gens older. My model, at least, is not IPS. It's a pretty crappy TN.

    I was nothing but pleased with my old Inspiron - lasted several years before it started to become unbearably slow (note, it only had an HDD - not an SSD like this). This model seems like a steal at this price.

    Having said that, I think I'd still splurge a bit more and go for an XPS. Different use case, I suppose though.

    • Agree, got the Inspiron on a previous deal, arrived this week. The quality is very plastic and the form factor is very dated. Huge bezel and doesn’t feel as solid as XPS.

      But XPS twice the price for same spec.

  • +4

    I kinda feel disappointed, for a RRP $2k laptop I would expect at least a dedicated GPU for gaming.

  • Could you game on it?

    • no

    • It can play CS GO and AoE:DE with no issues but struggles with Quake Champions

      • CS GO is an 8yr old game

        • Thanks for your opinion. It was a general question. I don't know what games they would want to play so I was giving my feedback. Is AoE:DE an 8 year old game too?

  • Couldn't find anything definitive but i think this Ice Lake i7-1065G7 might be the 15W TDP version (as opposed to the 25W TDP) which is a little underpowered… intel's new naming is pretty confusing

    EDIT: About the only info i could find specifying TDP for this model - nothing official…

    Havig said that Macbook is much worse in connectivity, you need to spend fortune if yo want to use it with existing hardware.

        My point is why is it necessary to buy/carry adaptors when you spend so much on a laptop.cables yes
        we need to buy them. But crap connectivity on a 2000+ laptop? I dont think it is a good proposition
        You are not buying a chromebook but so called top end laptop.

        • I dunno, I don't mind a USB C hub. Means you don't have to keep unplugging cables.

          I just wish the bundled them in, but consumerism.

      Dell is a workhorse that never dies and has larger screen. Dell Is a winner here.

    • As someone else said: The Lenovo is decently faster, has better battery life, better screen quality, plus a touch screen, comes with a active pen.

      512GB storage on the Dell vs 256GB on the Lenovo. Both are upgradabe, but the Dell is easier to upgrade because it has an empty 2.5inch drive bay.

      Would definitely pick the Lenovo

  • Just bought one, thanks OP!
    Question for the experts - I plan to use this at my desk with an external monitor to replace my NUC as I often need to take the laptop with me to different rooms for meetings.
    I have heard that keeping the laptop plugged in to the charger all day is bad for the battery - given the way I work, are there any suggestions on how I should manage this?
    Should I unplug it once it's fully charged, and plug it back in when it's battery is lower etc?
    Keen to hear some thoughts.

    • +1

      Unplug, Once fully charged. Saves the battery from going on an endless loop of trying to keep it at 100%.

      • Thanks for the suggestion!

    • +1

      Check BIOS settings, it may have an option to keep the battery at 80% rather than 100%.

    • +2

      Unclip/ partly remove the battery when at your desk, then push it in when you are on the move.

  • Damn..I paid $1500 for this 2 weeks ago.

    Inspirons are Dell's budget laptops. They used to be around $900. Now they artificially double the price then give these big discounts. This one has a bad screen and bad battery. But I admit the keyboard layout on the numpad versions of the Inspiron 15's is the best in the world.

    • +7

      Inspirons are Dell's budget laptops. They used to be around $900.

      That used to be the case in the old days before Dell decided on major product diversification. Inspiron is now divided into 3 different sub-models (as noted below). The Inspiron 15 5593 in the OP is part of the mid-range 5000 Series.

      The Dell consumer grade laptop range includes 4 major product lines: Inspiron, XPS, G Series & Alienware.

      Inspiron is the entry-level consumer grade product which is further divided into 3 different sub-models or series:

      • 3000 Series - budget (cheapest build quality & components).
      • 5000 Series - mid-range.
      • 7000 Series - high-end (includes some premium components like alloy chassis, and hi-tech features like Thunderbolt 3).

      XPS is the premium consumer grade product.

      G Series is the entry-level Gaming product. G Series is further divided into G3, G5 & G7 sub-models.

      Alienware is the premium Gaming product.

      The Dell business grade laptop range is similarly diversified into 4 major product lines: Chromebook, Vostro, Latitude & Precision.

      • What's mid range about this?

        This has a bottom of the barrel 220 nits 45% (NTSC!) screen (probably the worst FHD screen shipping in 2020), the i7-1065G7 is ok but nothing more than a low end part compared to what's out in 2020, the battery is pretty awful at 42Whr for a 15 inch laptop.

        The only thing I can tell from the specs that isn't bottom of the barrel is the i7 chip (again still low end, but you could do worse), ax wifi (but no bluetooth 5), and the 16GB Ram/512GB SSD which you can configure basically every other laptop with.

        It doesn't have any of the goodies of the 7000 series like the nice chassis or thunderbolt.
