Powerful, compact business-oriented laptop which can also be used in tablet mode thanks to its 360-degree hinge.

Spec includes:
- Latest 8th gen Intel i7-8550U processor (4 cores, 8 threads)
- 16GB RAM
- 512GB SSD
- 13.3-inch FHD (1920x1080) IPS touch display
- Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Fast processor, 16GB of RAM and generous sized SSD should make this a great little portable for non-gaming tasks.

List price is £969. However there are two stacking offers which together take £200 off that total:
1) Use code "SAVE100" to bring the price down to £869
2) Claim £100 cashback to bring the effective price down to £769

£100 "SAVE100" discount code and cashback offer both expire on November 22.

I'd buy that at £769.

Would be perfect for photoshop, in-design etc.

Heat added.

I looked at this extensively in person before bailing on it. The screen is pretty bad in my opinion, so not an option for me personally. GREAT spec and form factor though!

That's a damn shame and would put me off.

A good display is pretty much pivotal at this price point.

A bummer considering the strong spec behind it.

Shirley a Full HD screen is good enough on a 13" lappy?

Considering Lightroom and Photoshop was mentioned earlier by some one else, it's not about resolution but colour representation, so I would make a firm guess that the colour representation isn't up to scratch on this panel.

Does it have USB ports

Well it has decent CPU, decent ram, decent SSD, decent resolution and an overal decent price for the specs so there has to be something wrong otherwise this isn't HUKD

So this'll meet the full HD brigade and yet the results may look poor but at least they're be higher resolution poor images

I bought an i5 of this a while ago, the screen was fine? i really like the screen actually, for the price paid too.
*it has gone back to Dell for 2 faults with the screen though! it was bought from the outlet site.

Well from reading that I'm unsure as to whether you think the screen is actually good or not lol.

"The screen was fine?" Hmm surely you'd know as you own the laptop?

"I really like the screen" Aha! so you now have an opinion on the screen and it's good!

"It has gone back to Dell for 2 faults with the screen though!" Back to square one I think

Ordered this and active pen via Dell CS chat. Pen sent was not compatible. After several calls and emails they couldn't locate / send the correct pen. Laptop returned a week ago having waited a month for the correct pen. Shame as laptop very quick (we had the i5 8th gen, 8gb ram version) and build / weight were good.

Saw some terrible reviews about dispatching times due to delivery from china. They seems to be using ukmail as a courier company... Can I trust I will get a working laptop in my hand? Any guess how long would be the wait?

Purchased this yesterday and was about to list it on here myself before i found it already on here (not surprised).
paid £869 with a further £100 cashback in 30 days but I also got 8% cashback on Quidco £64 (ends in 5 days).
This brought the total price for this laptop down to £704 which for the specs is pretty damn good in my opinion.

Can someone confirm this is the newer model 5000 series or the old bulky one?

It's in the sub-category "New 13 2-in-1" under the "5000 Series" heading of this category page

That's the thing, it seems like it is still using the slightly bulky shell not the new thinner one.

It's a great deal, though not quite perfect for me - I'd trade off the i7 to an i5, and 16gb for 8gb, in exchange for a sharper screen.

Even still, I'm tempted to order, as it is a really really good deal!

Seems like a stonking good deal. However, earlier reviews from 2017 note that the screen is terrible. Do you think that Dell fixed this? On the listing it is shown as "Full HD Screen 1920x1080 with wide viewing angles".

Have people who have seen this in person actually seen the up to date model with the 8th Gen processors, or the one that Currys/PCWorld are selling which is the one with the 7th Gen processors??

Very tempted to order and then return it if not up to scratch...

I spoke to Dell chat about this model. They assured me it was a new model with a new screen. It was released 1-2 months ago with improved screen.

I also asked about the SSD. This is not an M.2 SSD, it is 2.5" SATA.

Bought this 10 days back seeing this deal.. Arrived in 2 days. Right from day-1 it had problem with wireless. It simply disconnected in 3 mins. When i tried to return laptop dell support offered some money back.. It seems dell knows about this defect and this issue is mentioned all over their customer portal. I didn't opt to take money and planned to returned laptop. They arranged DPD to collect laptop from home and DPD doesn't turn up. When called DPD they didn't have a clue about this pick'up. Another pickup lined up for Tuesday. I hope i get it out of my hands soon and get my money back.

£823 for 8th Gen i7, 512 gb ssd and 16gb ram. Why Dell is cheaper than Lenovo 900? Is it just the fancy hinge of lenovo?
