    256gb for a$2k laptop

      Yeah, I tend to replace the drive 1y later as it is much cheaper to upgrade it rather than having it at higher spec from purchase. As manufacturers tend to upsell and overprice extra drive capacity. As with RAM, because it is not upgradable, I recommend 16GB. There is a 8Gb model that is much cheaper.

    This makes the Macbook Pro 14 look like good value

      Hope it forces a lot of laptop and chipset manufacturers scrambling to keep up, good for us consumers in the end I guess

    Just get the M1 13” MacBook Pro at this price.

    All these Windows computer look like joke now against recently announced Macbook lineup.

    Just an FYI, Latitude is more popular in the enterprise space than consumer and the 2in1 model is even more expensive again over a regular touch screen.

    So it's not really comparable at all to a Mqcbook

  • For people who compare these to MacBooks: note that far too many people in the world use Windows computers over Macs: the current desktop/laptop market share of Windows is over 85%, whereas MacOS is less than 10%. Besides, the extra performance offered by the new Apple M chips is only beneficial to a very few professionals who use CPU intensive apps on their laptops (instead of using a desktop). For most people, the performance and battery life offered by current Windows laptops are more than good enough, but features like a touch screen, tablet mode, and a built-in 4G modem (like in this model) can make a bigger difference than having a CPU that has no real-world advantage.

      The main thing this has over M1 Pro laptop is a touch screen. Most people will probably prefer the better res 120Hz display over this. Yes, it has Thunderbolt 4 ports, but that's another problem. If you are into Thunderbolt 3/4, you are more likely to be a Mac user. While Intel finally up the DisplayPort resolution for the integration GPU, the HDMI is still HDMI 2.0. Having USB-A ports is handy I guess.

      Let's not kid ourselves here. Windows 10 touch screen and tablet mode never really took off and hardly a game changer (and iPads still the preferred tablets). I doubt Windows 11 is going to change that. We'll see what Intel's Alder Lake announcement is like in a few weeks. The screw ups by Intel for 7th gen, 8th gen and 9th gen mobile CPUs (which you get incremental improvements, and annoyingly bad Thunderbolt 3/USB-Alt mode implementation for the hopeless integrated graphics) make you question whether it is just lack of competition or pure arrogance from Intel.

      Do you seriously expect Windows to have the momentum to retain 85% of the market share? Apple previously bought top notch low power mobile CPUs form Intel (not the cheapo class ones).

      With majority of commonly use apps available on Mac OS, and if you opt for subscription for Office 365, do you really care if you run it on Windows or Mac? I doubt most people believe Visio is a must. It's going to be really tough for PC coming up. Will Intel boost the performance significantly while making the CPU cost down? Will AMD start being more consumer friendly like before? Is Apple M1 Max a significant wake up call for nVidia to stop screwing consumers?

      How many people know how to use / take advantage of Thunderbolt 4? Out of those people, how many actually have the gears to do so? This is at best M1 (non pro, nor max) level. And, now, it makes perfect sense why Apple simply put 1 external display on their M1 (the Intel offering here is just as bad, sure there is HDMI 2, but gosh, Intel… why? Why not HDMI 2.1?).

      Dell Latitude - that's mainly for businesses. Doesn't quite make sense for general public to get this. The specs just don't suit general public: vPro, 2xThunderbolt 4.

      • Why not HDMI 2.1? Because people who buy this dont need it.
        Literally 95% of the population doesn't need it, Even the Macbook Pro doesnt have it.

        You wont need it until 2025, From a gaming perspective which mostly is what pushes Graphics they are not at a stage where 4K120 is even feesible in AAA Titles.
        Like sure you can probably pay pong at 4K120 120FPS but best of luck playing COD at 4K120 120FPS Ultra Graphics.
        Wont happen.

        • Macbook Pro's, that's because Apple monitors are Thunderbolt 3 based so Apple would put the higher res output option (6K) on those ports. Furthermore, Apple knows too well about Intel's embedded GPU's weakness (Apple had to use AMD GPUs previously when using Intel CPUs) so that Apple is so certain Intel wouldn't do it and as expected Intel hasn't done that. Intel has to stop segmenting their products so much.

          The GPU inside that Intel CPU is now capable of 8K DisplayPort, but Intel has always let the HDMI port lagging behind big time (that's what the HDMI 2.1 comment is about). For years, Intel refused to do HDMI 2.0 properly and actually used a converter to convert a DisplayPort into HDMI 2.0.

          Assuming Dell has done the job correctly, 4K120 FPS output would be possible from this laptop via Thunderbolt 4 (basically DisplayPort) (6K should be possible and I am hoping Dell and Intel got it right so 8K is also supported). You didn't know that right? As for 120 fps is only for gaming…. I am not sure some people will agree with that.

          Most people will likely assume the laptop is only capable of supporting 4K/60Hz external display. That's just bad. Intel and PC makers don't push people down Thunderbolt (with good reasons). That's why the HDMI port is more important to PC users. For Mac users, Apple has been dangling that Thunderbolt carrot for years and took the HDMI port away previously.

          Perhaps the new way is to get the laptop, use it for a year or two, then sell it and get a new one. Clearly, Intel finally got the wake up call and start doing things better for consumers. However, this push towards Thunderbolt (instead of doing USB-C/alt-mode the right way) is bad for consumer and frankly, if Intel keep pushing us down that path, and we decided to get Thunderbolt 4 gears, that will create even less friction to go Macs.

          Do the right thing Intel, HDMI 2.1 (so that will help with TVs) and don't neglect alt-mode. Just show us PC setup can still be cheaper and cost effective.

    Thank you all for the in depth comparisons. This post is targeted to people who needs specific laptop specs that are for the following reasons:
    1) Extreme portability.
    2) Extreme connectivity.
    3) Multiple useability and security features (i.e smart card reader, NFC reader, active pen, operation modes like laptop/view screen/note taking)
    4) longer term of life of asset with minor upgrades required. (My plan is to use this for at least 5y)
    5) Useability on all applications designed for x86 systems.

    It is not intended for (but does not suggest it cannot do) the following: (Just not as well as the machines that targets these metrics)
    i) High performance graphics for gaming or CAD.
    ii) Highly intensive continuous tasks like video editing.
    iii) Extreme color accuracy display for photo/video editing.
    iv) Perfect craftsmanship in design and build quality.
