Was going to pull the trigger last night but decided to sleep on it and now it's an additional $100 off! It's part of the Webcrasher

http://www.dell.com/en-ca/member/shop/d ... tsb1_h009e

After my Unidays + eBates (10%) it brings it down to $648.89 which I think is a a great deal for anyone looking for a laptop. Thanks OP!
This is a great everyday build if you swap out the HDD for a SATA SSD (i.e. swap it out yourself). From what I've seen, this system flies with a SATA SSD.

Slightly similar offer from AMD:

http://www.dell.com/en-ca/member/shop/d ... tsb_s1102e

Pros:
  • Better GPU performance (should be on par with a 940MX with dual-channel 8GB 2400Mhz)
  • 256GB SSD
  • Smaller screen, same quality (touch FHD IPS)
  • Same battery (42WHr)
  • Slightly cheaper ($849 vs. $899)
Cons:
  • Smaller screen
  • Weaker CPU performance (2500U is only on par with i5-8250U)
If you don't care about having a 2-in-1, you can get the regular version of the Dell i7 laptop with a 256gb SSD for $879.99.

Does anyone know Dell.ca's return policy? What about shipping it back? In case I change my mind after I order it.
Thank you.

Some highlights from this review and my hands on experience:

- Full HD IPS screen is perfectly enjoyable and bright enough for indoor use
- This laptop hits all the key value checkboxes for a mid-range system
- Using the SSD build or upgrading to an SSD makes this system fly on an i7

For the price, it's hard to beat.

Probably not, no. Consider a gaming laptop.

With Unidays it comes down to $809.99. I logged in through the ebates site but I'm not sure how it works, it gives no indication of a discount before checking out.

I just typed Dell in the website's Search bar and it shows all Dell cashbacks. Dell Consumers is 2% and Dell Business is 8%.

The 8550u is fast...but I'm not sure about the cooling capability of this model. i.e. potential CPU thermal throttling.

Reviewers have not reported issues with throttling. I've read and watched a few reviews at this point.
