what a deal! I got the 9350 16GB version a few weeks back from a decent seller on ebay for £650 with 6 months warrenty. THis is a fantastic laptop for my dev work, highly recommend them
Is this good deal?
I have just tried to add it to my basket but it doesn't add. I suspect you bought the only one in stock.
Great deal, such a good laptop. Hot!

I would rather spend a couple of pound more and buy the one with QHD display amazon.co.uk/gp/…020

The laptop is great, the screen phantastic, the only reason why I sold mine yesterday is that it had no-antiglare screen which really annoyed me all the time.

Great laptop, the best Windows laptop hands down, heat added

I ordered one, but am cancelling it - didn't realise it was 7th gen rather than 8th gen (perhaps slightly optimistic of me). The coil whine on 8th gen occurs too often. On 7th gen I've seen far, far too many instances of it.

Not sure why people are so crazy about the 8th Gen., probably because that they can say that they have a 4-core machine. For 90% of the users that is certainly irrelevant as they don't run any applications that support more than 2-cores.

You may have a point overall with regards to 7th gen v 8th gen, but, as stated, the issue with these laptops is the coil whine issue which still exists despite a number of iterations of essentially the same design, though seems to get less on successive generations. I don't know why Dell don't just deal with the issue once and for all.
Never had coil whine on my 9350 or my ears a just didn't hear it.

The bigger issue for me was that the laptop had (read same for new models) issues to go into sleep mode when closing the lid. That drained the battery like hell and it got crazy hot in the bag.

Hope the Latitude 7480 that I ordered a couple of days from the outlet has not this problems.

Some xps laptops didn't have the whine....but that just makes the fact that some did even more frustating. And far too many do.

I'm sure we can both agree that when you pay for a laptop, particularly the amounts you pay for the xps or even the model you're now going for, having either a coil whine issue or the sleep issue you reference is not really acceptable.

Maybe they're developers. I'm swapping an XPS 13 with a 6th gen CPU out for a desktop as far too often I find myself waiting for a task to finish while the CPU is absolutely pegged. Having a quad core would help but an older desktop's cheaper than an 8th gen XPS 13 by far so that'll do.

If you don't mind me asking, which desktop are you going for?

Nothing fancy for an office PC. Lenovo M93p second hand off ebay for £170. i5-4590, 8GB RAM, 240GB SSD. I might then upgrade it to 16GB of RAM but that can wait.
Some more in stock now and a few at £675 after the discount.
Not expired.

I would advise the total opposite unless you NEED touch. The QHD cuts battery life by almost a third, the screen is so shiny I find it awful, and for most use I couldn't make use of the resolution, everyday things like browsing etc I had to have it scaled 150%. With the Full HD model, it's not touch but the battery is better, it's cheaper and it has a much better matt screen with more accurate colours. All that said I actually prefer my wifes Dell 7373 to my XPS, hers has a full HD touch screen.

It's 30% more powerful and saves 14% battery life. I found the i5-7200U to be an absolute dog of a processor, It was painfull to use. However the i5-8250U is a monster, it's so good the i7-8250U is only 14% better, the closest i5 and i7 has ever been. I genuienly couldn't give a rats arze about having 4 cores, for me it's all about useability.
Agree to that concerns even if I liked QHD. Getting tomorrow a Latitude 7480 with HD (no-touch). I actually never used the touch screen and it turned out if you show stuff to people they pointed on the screen and screwed everything up.

Good price but I much prefer the 8th gen, not just because of the significantly better processor (at least 30% more powerful) but also it has USB C power delivery, this will become charging standard very very soon.
Got a used, 'very good', QHD version for 730 - not worried about impact on battery life and love the 1440p screen.
Arrived in perfect condition. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks OP!
(Maybe it will develop whine etc and I will return it but, for the moment, all is good)
What are these like for gaming, then?
