Do you know if that code works for any of the others? Was after the i5 version.

EDIT:
Looks like it does as it says 'Save £100 on all Inspiron 7000 Series and XPS (except XPS 13). Use the coupon code C6DQFSB5K8G1C4. Offer ends 16 July.'

US keyboard is a downer, but can't grumble at that price. If I can just bring myself to stop buying games for a bit (aka grow up) I may well have a dabble!

I bought one of these last year for my daughter... I've got an XPS12 (with the rotating screen) and much prefer the Inspiron. If I could have got away with it, I'd have kept the Inspiron and given her the XPS

When the XPS gives up the ghost, I'd be more than happy with one of these... particularly at this price.

Only one RAM slot is a bummer

Having purchased a Lenovo Flex 2-14 (Pentium 3558) with FHD screen (£246 - Amazon Used-Good) recently, I'm not in the market though this is a nice looking machine. FHD would make it even better though still a good spec otherwise.

1366 x 768 - No thanks

Pah! Been selfishly watching these for a couple of weeks, during which time they have had a good range of (slightly different) iterations that have been refreshed often.

I use a US spec keyboard, tbh it's not much of a hassle. Couple of function buttons in strange positions but it's still a qwerty :-)

Great laptop. I have the i5 fhd version. Potential buyers should be mindful of the ghost touches issue haunting this model;) Just Google it.

Perfect timing, just the sort of spec and more importantly price that I was looking out for. Thanks OK.

On a 13"? Don't be silly.

Great CPU, but at this price I would really like to see a Full HD display.

Agreed, even if it is 13". It is VERY pretty, though.

Is there any good reason why the "5th gen i3" costs less than the "4th gen i3". I assume the older chip isn't better...



edit: derp, wrong, either it was a glitch on the page, or in the matrix, or (more likely) in my brain.

That only seems to be on the old gen i3, which as above costs MORE than the new gen i3. The new gen also has a standard UK keyboard. Code cn34806. Plus it's £25 less.

It's £499 instead of £429?

My wife has a higher spec version of this Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 series and it's a lovely little laptop, the build quality is excellent, I highly recommend it.

It is acceptable for some purposes,but let's face it, hardly a thing of beauty . I would think twice about having this resolution on a phone, let alone laptop.

You clearly don't have much experience of 1920 x 1080 on a 13.3" laptop. You have to do a huge amount of zooming and scaling at that resolution. Hell, I even have to zoom and scale on a 1080p 15.6" screen and have better than 20:20 vision. And why are you comparing it to a phone? Do you stare at your laptop with your face 1ft away from the screen? There's also much more to picture quality than simply screen resolution. Panel type, brightness, contrast, colour gamut etc etc. I could show a 768p picture on one panel that will be infinitely better looking that 1080p on another type of panel.

You are correct in that the quality of the display makes a tremendous difference. My youngest has a Sony laptop with a 17" FHD display, and the panel is atrocious, the contrast is so low that my tired old eyes struggle with it, even at 17". I used to have an XPS 13 FHD, non-touch, with appropriate scaling that gave me to trouble, but wasn't ideal. I am now fortunate enough to have an XPS 13 with the 3200 x 1800 panel and that has been a revelation. I intended to get the FHD model, but the Dell Outlet only had the 3200 x 1880 available. The IGZO panel is amazing, the contrast and definition is such that even really small text is absolutely clear. I can use this for hours without any eyestrain. I can't remember what the scaling is set to, but I will post that this evening, if I remember. I can use a remote desktop at 1920 x 1080 in a window with no problems. Of course trying to use native resolution on the screen would be a bit daft. So yes panel quality has a large part to play. Probably 1600 x 900 is ideal for 11" to 13", but 1366 x 768 makes everything look like minecraft.

Every laptop I owned up til about 5 years ago had exactly this res.
It gets compared to a phone because they both are screens, have pixels, used (for me) at about the same distance...I could go on, but only if you confim you are neither a bot nor under the age of 7. I cannot tell from your previous response.

Agreed Good points - And higher pixel dencity = more memory + high power use neither welcome on a battery powered laptop. Take a look at the battery life of the higher res screens (phone or laptop) the screens are now the biggest consumers of power and there is a significant addtional power drain. As has been pointed out in other threads on HUKD the 4K screens to not work well as the OS support is patchy.

It was about 1080p screens which have been commonplace for over a decade. Yes, screens consume power. Is this news to anyone? What did you think was pumping out all that light? The energy from your keystrokes? ELI5? ELI3 for you good sir.

Super weird, when I looked earlier on today the newer i3 model was £404 (or possibly 414, I forget). Now it says £499, as you say. I guess I should have bought it!

Some very stupid comments about the screen res oO I have this laptop and the screen is good infact its all good.

I had a 13" 768 res laptop once and it did seem a bit low. I found 900 to be a really good res, as 1080 is too much for that size, but it's pretty rare. Oddly enough the 1800 one is good because you can downsample to 900 without aliasing issues. I wouldn't advise 200% scale as Windows apps still don't support it properly.

Back on topic though, this could be an ok deal despite the res. A good quality screen would likely make a bigger difference. Don't get too hung up on pixels, same rule for cameras.

This seems a good deal. But not sure if I should save some dosh and get the lenovo miix 10 with keyboard for 150? All I do is browsing, download from qnap transmission and watch movies, that's pretty much about it.
Seems great build and back lit keyboard

It depends what you want this is larger and has a metal chasis - The Miix is also a great machine much lighter and smaller.

My Inspiron has left the Factory! and will take 7 days arrive (flown to the UK then next day delivery)

I also can recommend the Lenovo Flex 10 (Argos ebat refurb - like new £140ish) great build MUCH thiker than the Miix3 but it is simple to expand (not possible on the Miix3 as it is a tablet so MicroSD is the only option) Sure the Flex 10 is a lot heavier but it is a good cheap touch laptop - Drop in an SSD and you are good. That said the built in HDD is excellent.

Despite bitching about the resolution I've just pulled the trigger. Sure hope it's decent, it's to replace my wife's vostro v13 (still the thinnest laptop I've ever used) and the build quality looks similar (i.e. it's metal-y)
Looking forward to postie ringing the bell!

Yes all fine. Stylus works well (comprable to an external WACOM) nice build. Removed the bloatware.
Anyone have a link to the UK keyboard cn34806 I got the US keyboard not a problem but was wondering...

Does anyone else have terrible pop ups on this? I've barely installed anything other than crome and iTunes, but getting some sort of ukshoppersoffer pop up on every single website! So frustrating

Nice machine excluding that

No. Install malawarebytes use the free version to clean your machine.
I'd remove supplied AV and install Windows Defender
Also install ccleaner
worth having many browsers Chrome, Opera, FFox, etc so you can get on line
