What's the build quality?

Is it a metal chassis or plastic?

There's also a $25off$700PC coupon, but not sure if it stacks with the 10% off email code.

How did you even figure that? And what use is that information when every province has different taxes.

$729 - 10% off = $656
$656 + tax = $741
$741 - 100 gift card - 10% ebates on the before tax price = $576

Taxes are calculated based on the only province that matters, Ontario

Hmm, 14” or $20 for the 15”? Same resolution.

Placed an order with Dell the other day. Got the AMD Ryzen 7 + Vega 10 model, $711 tax-in during the weekend sale. Hoping the Vega 10 outperforms their intel offerings (like this one) when it comes to light/medium gaming performance.

I wish they had 10% ebates back then though. Only got 2% ebates.

Found my math mistake. I wasn’t including the gift card.

Can someone who owns this laptop do me a favour and test the screen on this site to see if it has PWM or not at one of the sites below? I'm looking for a laptop that does not have PWM. So you would turn down the brightness and see if the lines that go across the screen stay smooth or if it turns choppy. I was looking at the Lenovo Thinkbook 14s on sale for $820 with FNDEPP with the same specs (plus a slightly better GPU and a metal body) but this is $200 less so a better deal imo.

Anyone know who makes the Wifi?
I'm hoping it's Intel.

EDIT: Dammit. Realtek Ethernet.

Is there a noticeable difference?
I love RFD! :)
