What would you like to know? The overly bright LEDs when charging? The WORST speakers on a premium laptop ever. The sharp corners? The light bleed? The rubbish battery?
The Inspiron 7000 series is the premium entry in the Inspiron line-up and admittedly, the quality has come on loads as it has to compete with metal laptops in lower segments (Asus Zenbook, Lenovo Yoga/IdeaPads, etc.) but the XPS still has the edge - the carbon fibre doesn't look cheap, it feels like plastic but then it's a composite material, it is incredibly stiff and rigid which is what gives it that quality feel, the metal lid is thick and doesn't really give or dent easily. I've had both of these and I'd pick the XPS all day long, but I do agree and I said it above, 1080p is perfectly fine for this, I have a very good 1080p IPS panel on a Dell Latitude E7440 (14" ultrabook) and it's bordering on being too small, but I do prefer to run at 100% as Windows just cannot deal with scaling properly and still can't after god knows how many years now. QHD and 4K on laptops of this size is just for 'retina' quality where you can barely see the pixels and have smooth fonts but you need much brighter backlights to achieve the same 'overall' brightness and much more power to drive the displays, and that seems like a waste to me. Dare I say it, the only mainstream OS that can deal with scaling properly is Mac OS X.
Old model is probably still better than my 5yo laptop just now, I ain't fussy lol :p
it's the old model, it'll turn up again no doubt.
Bahhhhh, I've had my eye on this laptop for ages. Oh well. Weren't meant to be.
