Recent version of the Inspiron 13 (previous versions have been more plasticy!). Make sure you pick this one, as there is a DDR3 version for the same price (may just be a typo).

Sorry but this is wrong. The i5 8250u only supports DDR4 and LPDDR3... if it is LPDDR3 then you should get that as it is a better choice over DDR4.

Wondered it was that or just a typo- the other one just quoted "DDR3 1600MHz", and the linked one was "DDR4 2400MHz"

200Hz PWM below 90% brightness => serious eye strain after long hours

Been looking for pretty much that spec at that price. That £426 did include the VAT?
Voted cold. Similar specs of laptop can be bought from dell outlet for £300+ depending on stock

How is LPDDR3 a better choice than DDR4? LP just stands for Low Power. By logic alone it should be no where near as effective as DDR4.

You ordered a Inspiron 5000 series, with a plastic case. We are talking about an Inspiron 7000 series here, with a full aluminium case. Very different computers.

No, it can't. You won't get a premium computer (aluminium build, slim bezel etc) for that price.

Yes exactly that logic. It uses much less power, see here:

reddit.com/r/h…ge/

Performance wise there is a very minor difference. You should always go for LPDDR3 over DDR4 in my opinion.
The same spec on Dell Outlet was £598.80 inc vat at 08:29 on 18/05/2018

Please share, I know there are lots of other laptops (Dell and non-Dell, new and refurb ) with same CPU, chipset, RAM, SDD, FHD, but not same build quality/weight/etc.as the Inspiron 13 7000 serias

It just says DDR3 1600 in the advert (no mention of LP)

I agree I am 99% sure it is a mistake. I can not find reference of them doing a model with LPDDR3 either, shame.
Steeljedi14 h, 25 m ago

The 5000 series is aluminium case too.


Nope, it's plastic painted silver. The 7000 series has an alumium chassis and alumnium lid.
lattitudes are proper metal
Anyone had a bad experience with recent Dell LCD panel quality? From Dell Outlet I ordered a Precision 7510 (2017 refurb) with a 15.6" FHD 'IPS' panel but it turned out to be their basic TN panel, with the worst LCD picture quality I've seen in about 10 years. Appalling contrast, made worse by a really narrow viewing angle.
But I was lucky in that Dell had got the details wrong and they found me a replacement with the IPS panel. Amazing in comparison.
Always check the specs of those panels...

Thanks for sharing your first deal @CaptainKremmen heat added

Minor follow up-having posted the deal, I actually splashed the cash and bought one.
Free next day on TNT, laptop looks untouched (slightly worried as it is a refurb)

EDIT: The HDMI output supports UHD @ 60Hz, which I wasn't expecting (most reviews mention HDMI 1.4, not 2.0), so no need for USB-C to HDMI 2.0 dongle.

Not all models, no. But keep repeating and it might eventually happen...

All gone now, AFAICS, so marking deal as expired.
They have others at same price (again 7370, with (probably misprinted) DDR3 1600 RAM but main diff seems to be 1 yr collect and return, not the on site that the deal above had.
They also have more expensive ones, with 3yr on site.
