[Dell] Dell Latitude(Business grade) 15 inch 1080p i5 8gb ram, 500gb hdd - $800~ taxes in

OK this seems hot, i don't know if i need another laptop.

Edited: I think 15inch versions are much better. 8GB RAM, and is cheaper, same 1080p screen.

This is business grade laptop with 1080p display.

Coupon: NRLP32Z9F62WW7 for $100 off $899
Ebates: 15% currently
Dell advantage: 5%? i dont know if this is in cash?

http://www.dell.com/ca/business/p/latit ... -laptop/fs

select 3rd option - 1080p, 8gb

Sub-total $1,895.59
Total Discounts -$1,016.59
Sub-total $879.00
HST $114.40
Environmental Handling Fee $1.00
Total Price 2 $994.40

994.4 - 994.4*(.15) - 994.4*(0.05) = $795.52 TAXES IN!

So price charged would be $994.4 to credit card, and then Ebates and dell advatange are rebated to you.

Idk if dell advantage is a credit or cash somehow?

What do you think?
14 inch version will come out $40~ higher with 4GB of RAM, same screen.

I5 laptops regularly go on sale for under $550. Not sure if paying $300 more for a 1080P screen qualifies this as "hot".

big difference in build quality between consumer grade vs business. latitude lines are comparable to thinkpad lines.

not sure if comparable. Just got this for 599 + tax using coupon code PCGRAD15 (not stackable with student discount). Slapped a SSD in there and it is going quite smooth. One open slot for memory and I think it is expandable up to 16gb. Weighing in at just over 2kg and 1080p screen as well.

Downside is that it is a bit warm on the bottom. The top is cool to the touch.

True but aren't the Inspiron line from Dell is built very well compared to other brands?

Recently they had their Inspiron 2 in 1 convertible laptop with touch screen for $649 with comparable specs (i5, 500 GB HDD, 4GB ram, 4 cell battery) but albeit with 720p display.

That is $449 in the US mfst store. After exchange like $575, so $599 isn't terrible but $449 is the no coupon sale price...

regardless, same can be said for lenovos but business line laptops are designed to be much tougher and that's why thinkpads cost more given the same specs.

similarly, HP elitebooks are on a different level than HP consumer laptops.

i'd never get 720p displays now...

You can't compare a line to a brand. Inspiron is a low-end line, Dell brand. You can compare it to other brands' low-end lines but not to their high-end lines. Latitude is a high-end line, higher in spec in all ways -- not just in CPU, GPU, RAM, and disk but also in materials, fit & finish, and other things like cooling system, keyboard, track pad, even the hinge quality. If you mostly use your notebook with an external monitor, mouse, and keyboard, then all that really matters is the performance and reliability. But if you use it directly and/or carry it around with you, then its other qualities become important, and you also want it to be tougher and even more reliable. That's where the high-end lines are beneficial (whether you use it for business or not). I'm using a Latitude right now and can tell you that the quality does stand out and it's a pleasure to use. Really happy with it. I also got it because of a deal here on RFD (like this one). I was looking at a lower-spec Latitude and a Lenovo Thinkpad, but the sale made it a no-brainer.

Can't find any reviews for this laptop, looks decent though. I'm visiting the states in the next week. You think its a good pickup?

Would swap an SSD and upgrade the memory (maybe in the near future)

OK, I think the 15 inch ones are better and I updated the OP.

If you go to the site,

regular price for the 15inch is 1895$ and is on sale for $979. Apply all coupon and deductions, you get $800~ tax in.

1080P display, 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD.

Good specs for the price. I just wish they were styled better and not have a Dell logo on the lid.

Spec wise it's good, haven't seen it in person to judge look / feel/ weight though
