Note: The motherboard does not support XMP, so XMP RAM will still work, but likely at 2666Mhz down from 3200Mhz. Go with non-XMP RAM (i.e. avoid gaming RAM). Not a big deal, but if you're looking for maximum performance, keep this in mind.
Guidance
redflagdealsguy wrote: Locking in $699 Price on the Dell Inspiron 4500U
1. Call Dell Canada Sales.
2. Provide existing account information (past customer).
3. Inform the rep you want the Dell Inspiron 15 with the Ryzen 4500U CPU.
4A. Provide the Unidays code.
4B. Ask if there's a potential loyalty discount, they may apply it automatically.
5. Let them know you're not willing to go over $700 because you've found a Staples Lenovo Ryzen 4500U machine that's essentially identical at $699.

https://www.staples.ca/products/2974876 ... ws-10-home

6. Ask kindly if they'll consider doing a price adjustment (not a price match), otherwise you might buy the Staples machine instead. You're letting them know you're prepared to buy with them today if they approve the adjustment. Remember, it's not a precommitment for an order, just an expression of interest so you're not bound.

Good luck.

If Restocking fees exist like their policy states, then I would say it's not worth it and the 'Other' reason is valid.

I thought people voted according to deal posted , not return policy?
If you don’t agree with return policy , you wouldn’t buy anyways , doesn’t warrant a downvote sheesh

so, I can only return if purchased if unopened and they charge a 15% restocking fee?
that seems steep if I need to return.
My son bought an XPS 13 a few weeks ago and wasn't happy with it. He was able to return it without the 15% fee. He simply told them about the build issues (a slight bulge on the palmrest) and functional problems (periodically drops wifi, occasional screen flickers).

Realistically, if your only reason for returning a product is that you're experiencing buyer's remorse, you *should* be charged a restocking fee. You're costing the company money.

This is correct, gentlemen.

I've heard the following be accepted with full refund.
- Hardware incompatibility through I/O
- Software incompatibility through stock OS
- Hardware defect

The list goes on.

Do not suggest that you've opened the laptop or attempted to upgrade it. Ship it back with stock parts.

I normally loathe to consider Dell laptops (particularly the XPS line) based on experience with their common use of Killer wifi chips. Thankfully this model doesn't have it.

Having purchased a Dell XPS 15 and an HP ProBook within the last year, [...].

The XPS is a beautiful machine. And considering the price, the ProBook is incredible value and looks to be pretty well built.

I've always stayed away from Acer, though.

Most brands have crap lines. Just make sure you do your research and avoid those.

The Toyota Corolla of laptops.

I have owned 4 different Inspirion 15s over the decade (all RFD recommendations) and they've all been great. I find their price point and value to be very good. You're not getting all the bells and whistles with these machines but if you're not big into games then you should find these laptops more than adequate for at least 3 years. Someone's going to reply to this thread and tell you 8GB is not enough and I'm going to disagree with them on that.

From a reliability standpoint, everything has been good except I had a fan issue on a laptop about 2 years into owning one. I took it to an independent shop in the city and fixed it for 60 bucks.

Hope this helps. Good luck. Filter the noise and buy the machine that's right for you.
