17.3 Laptop around $600

I'm looking for a 17.3" laptop and I seem to have found two that fit the bill any thoughts on one or the other? I like the price of the Visions one, but it makes me weary.

Visions has a 17.3" Lenovo Ideapad 320 7th gen i3 6gb ram 1tb drive for $450, and Dell has a Inspiron 17 5000 Non-Touch (Intel®) 7th gen i3, 8gb ram 1tb HD for $600.
Thoughts on which one? The Visions one seems priced ridiculously well.

Thanks,

I3 for $450? Meh not hot. I'd wait if you can. Nothing hot so far if you are trying to score a laptop at an amazing price.

I bought the Inspiron 17 5000 last year and think it's the worst dell I bought in a while.

The only 17" I am buying this year is the best buy 17" 7000 and it's $1500. This seems to be a terrible year for laptops of any kind but especially 17". Nobody seems to want to make one for serious office work.

I'd stay away from Visions, a lot of the time they sell lemons and especially with clearance products like that Lenovo Ideapad 320.

My cousin just got the 17.3" Acer Aspire 5 at Best Buy as a "self Christmas present" lol and it's a solid laptop. Good build quality and decent specs at $799.
