The two Samsung TVs are not QLED. They are normal VA edge-lit crap TVs.

I'll say it once. Companies selling Windows Laptops with 32GB drives should be criminally charged. Their CEO/CAO/CFO should be thrown into prison and locked away for 200 years.

You really gotta know what you're doing if you want to have *any* usable space after the first update.

It's fine if it's a Chromebook, but Windows? No. NO NO NO! Don't buy unless you're super familiar with Windows, are OK with the command prompt, and know what useless junk and other files (update files, for example) to delete, and disable a whole bunch of HD eating functions (like restore points, swapfile, pagefile, etc). And have a few hours of spare time to get 'er all done.

If this were 2006 and Windows Vista...sure, 32GB is a little small, but, hey...budget and crap.

And yeah, I have this unit (though not the Intel version, I have the AMD chip), which I bought for my kids home schooling. I did know what I got myself into before doing it, and was prepared for some sort of fight with Windows. This computer wasn't intended to store lot of info. However, after Windows updating itself, I was down to 1GB of room, with warnings from MS telling me to delete crap that it didn't know what I should delete -- so, yeah, told me to delete my personal files (which I had ZERO of).

Rant, I know, but Microsoft screws everyone over, and Dell should be ashamed of themselves for selling it. At the very least, have instructions how to get back your space; or better yet, MS should have an app that can delete and optimize disk space.

/rant

My efforts gave me 12.1 GB -- still not as good as the 18 GB I started with, but good enough. (I did add one app the is about 1.5GB, so perhaps 13.6GB is a better answer)

Dude, last week I ordered two 2 TB seagate external hard drives for $39.99 each and they cancelled my order two days ago saying "we've run out of stock and it was a pricing error". Such bad customer service. Why list item on sale then cancel orders when the item goes out of stock? They still haven't refunded my Rewards cash back balance saying it will take 5 business days.

Any thoughts on the G5 Laptop for $1049? The i7 and GTX1060 in there makes it look pretty mighty.

Yea exactly man. Never ordering from Dell again. Not even a discount code or something.

Last year I ordered a $50 12 month xbox live subscription from them and it took them 1.5 weeks just to verify my credit card and another 4-5 days to "deliver" the digital code. I told them I could've just got it from Bestbuy for $10 more instead of losing two weeks of my gaming time. I promised myself not to buy from them again but the $40 deal seemed too good to be true and it was.........

Has something similar happen, and got hung up on from their customer support. Every time you order from them, you gotta pray nothing happens to your order. Not really worth the miniscule saving. Better off buying from somewhere that doesn’t treat their customers like shit.
