[Dell] Inspiron 14 7000 2in1 Ryzen 7 4700U, 16Gb, 512SSD $1050 less discounts

Other than a weak FHD screen, this checks a lot of boxes - 16Gb (expandable), Ryzen 4700, touchscreen supports active pen.
Even inlcudes 1 year onsite service.
And there is an addition $50 off with coupon code $50off$1000PC, 2 - 2.5% cashback available.
I also have an Amex offer for 10% off, but I can't find this model through the offer link.

A little bit off topic, but has anyone found a laptop like this in Canada?

HP Envy x360
15.6 in touchscreen
Ryzen 5 or 7
16 GB RAM
512 GB SSD

Costco has Ryzen 5 with 8 GB RAM for $899
https://www.costco.ca/hp-envy-x360-15-d ... 58443.html

Ugh all its missing is 16 GB RAM, and it would be perfect. And it'll be cheaper than this Dell model, and bigger screen, and looks better imo.
I know you can upgrade the RAM, but it ends up costing $100 to buy it yourself anyways. And you'd have to find a compatible part.

I have this exact laptop with 16 GM RAM actually but it was purchased in the US.

$1050 - Unidays (10%) - Rakuten (2%) = $926.10

It's not bad, certainly the best price you'll find for a 4700U 2-in-1 14" laptop. Upgradeable RAM and SSD is a godsend.

Still too rich for me. Best you wait for the rapidly approaching Black Friday and Holiday Season pricing.

Literally had to return my laptop from the previous thread because of 3 weeks of changing communication. From sending me a replacement laptop that was to have been delivered 3 days ago, to me calling in and wondering where it is, to be told oh the factory is refusing to make any more and has made it end of life configuration. This price isn't even that good that I would say risk it. They easily have the WORST employees and service I have seen, and I have seen it all. I would say pay more and ensure there is some sort of retail presence for what you bought so you can deal with any issues. Costco is likely best option since you are getting 2 years guaranteed of repairs, replacements or returns by just going down to your local costco or calling them.

Just one look at @DellCares twitter and their replies will tell you all you need to know. And I spoke with literally 30+ employees all who said widely different things, lied, disconnected etc. You'll spend hours talking with someone and being told something will happen and then you'll go back a few days and see nothing happened, service request was closed and you have an all new employee who will say something completely different.

RFD'ers will get it, but they are so on my ****list now that I would rather deal with Tiger Direct, Bell Canada anyday of the week rather than Dell lol.

You can not use the uniday code and a coupon such as the 50$ off or 100$ off tohether. I tried, so the pretax price is 945$, 2%Rakuten and 3% reward.
If Rakuten was 8-10-12%, it would have been an excellent deal.

I think the screen quality is important if you plan to use the laptop as a laptop, so probably wouldn't go for this.

That being said, from the 360 picture on the site, Dell has improved the design of this inspiron series quite a bit. I expected a much uglier thicker laptop.

A few things.

@Harold91's points are valid, but require some context.

I've dealt with all major builders and they're almost all shades of garbage.

Dell's issue is their heavy heavy reliance on Delhi' s destitute to serve as phone support. South Asia has good, and not-so-good phone support depending on company, business culture, and processes. South Asia is a very complex and varied environment, so this isn't a generalization.

For simple requests, Dell phone support is reasonable, e.g.:
1) Return and Replacement
2) Return and Refund
3).... Not much else.

Worse yet, when you call again after the ball is rolling on the prior request, they often won't know the continuity on the file (learning curve). You'll be at risk of receiving an undue course course, in the form of some action, delaying, withholding or cancelling of the prior advice and a different action... or reset of the original plan.

And yet, despite all that, I bought (2x) Dell Inspirons, the 4500U and 4700U. The former has arrived and its a beauty for the price. The latter was ordered recently and won't arrive for a little while.

To each their own isn't just a platitude, we all have different goals, desires, and tolerance for risk.

OP's link is blocked hard on my uBlock'd Firefox browser. Can't get to it at all. All Dell links are like that now for the last week or so. Other links are ok.

"ad.doubleclick.net’s server IP address could not be found."

edit: PS.... also cannot get to it using a clean OEM copy of Vivaldi and Edge with no extra add in apps.

What is the comparable Lenovo 2-in-1? Flex? Yoga?
