[Dell] Dell Inspiron 5000 (Ryzen 2500u, 8GB DDR4, 1080p, 1TB) - $550 plus Unidays or Ebates

This laptop was posted at $600 back in April and was deemed a pretty good deal.

Now it's $550 plus whatever Unidays or Ebates deals you can add on.
Ebates currently has 10% Cash Back, and the coupon code $25OFF$500PC for an additional $25 off still works from the expired thread.

How is this compared to the hp envy x360? Been looking at amd for a long time now, my 2011 mba still hasn't died yet so I can wait a bit longer....

Can someone provide a Uniday code? :) This looks like a good deal, the cpu is comparable to the i5-8250U

No SSD is the main problem. I don't want open a brand new laptop and replace HDD

I have a barely used one for sale in Edmonton if anyone is interested. $750. It comes with a new 512 GB NVMe SSD ($200) already installed and a Dell professional carrying sleeve ($45). Works fine, I just don't need it. Used for about 30 minutes, all the stickers are still on it.

I agree, idk why manufacturers shoot themselves in the foot like this. They would have been better off sticking a 256GB ssd instead of a 1tb and it wouldn't of really costed them extra. Nowadays for laptops its better to have a better performing smaller drive than a mass storage hard drive.

Anyone know if this particular model has a USB-C 3.1 connector that can connect to an external dock to drive monitors? The info on the 5000 line says that it only applies to discrete graphics options, but there isn't anything saying the new Vega integrated graphics can't do it.

Interesting that if you follow the links for Inspiron AMD on Dell's website you don't see this deal. I was looking to see if there is a SSD option that's also on sale but wasn't able to find one.

I agree with you on this point. My guess is that for what they deem as an entry level laptop they just want the largest storage drive they can get for the cheapest price assuming most people that would be looking at this laptop don't know the difference between an ssd and an hdd.

Because manufacturers want to separate the high-end ultrabook and regular laptop. They only put the SSD in ultrabook and sell it for the much higher price. such as XPS from Dell. If they put SSD in all laptop. Not that much people would choose high-end models just for better design and screen and their performance is very similar

Dell can probably get 1tb cheaper.

This unit is perfect for us who need to replace their mid-range desktops.

Any who have this, can you tell us how the keyboard is? Every so often, Dell would have a model where the keyboard is not great, like you have to press hard to hit space.
