Advice on Dell Latitude 3310

Hi All,

Through work, I have an option of buying a few Dell products at a discount. It's mostly chromebooks, but they do have the following laptop available:


Base
Dell Latitude 3310 XCTO

Processor
8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-8265U Processor (4 Core, 6MB Cache,1.6GHz,15W)

Operating System
Windows 10 Pro 64bit Nat Aca Std. K12 EDU only. MSFT LOE Approval req-d. English, French, Spanish

Microsoft Office
No Microsoft Office License Included-30 day Trial Offer Only

Graphics
Intel® Core™ i5-8265U processor w/Intel® UHD graphics 620

Systems Management
No Out-of-Band Systems Management - No vPro

Memory
8 GB, 1X8 GB 3200MHz DDR4 Non-ECC

Hard Drive
M.2 128GB PCIe NVMe Class 35 Solid State Drive

LCD
13.3" HD (1366 x 768) Anti-Glare Non-Touch, Camera & Microphone, WLAN Capable

Keyboard
Single Pointing Non-backlit English Keyboard

Primary Battery
4 Cell 56WHR Battery


The price is $796 (If I search this model regularly through the website, it is listed as $1159 (although starting price is listed as $1828).

I'm not desperate for a laptop at this moment, but will probably need a new one within a year or so. I've never owned a Dell before. Is this a decent deal that I should jump on? My use case is just average home use (web browsing, some MS Office, torrents, etc)

any input appreciated. thanks!

Check out Dellrefurbished. They usually have a 20-50% discount sale around major holidays. Next one Should be around Canadian Thanksgiving.

IMO not worth anywhere near that, maybe $400 at best in that configuration. Ryzen-based Inspiron 5505 that's always on sale on RFD blows this out of the water performance/value wise.

The specs are quite sad - you can upgrade the ram and tiny SSD, but the 768p (non-IPS?) display is just criminally bad.
