There's a version that is not upgradeable which is the 7390 2019 version. They did away with that as consumers complained

This 7390 DE is the 2020 version so the SSD is upgradeable

OP should add that this is the 2020 model as to not confuse people with the non upgradeable 2019 model

I had the 7390 and the 9300 at separate times

Great machines but my biggest issue with them, especially the 9300, was when you lift the machine with one hand say to move it, because it’s so thin and the way they constructed the laptop, there was a lot of flex and that made the trackpad click. Less so with the 7390 but the coil wine was an issue that annoyed me

I ended up going with a razer blade in the end. No issues with build quality on that machine aside from the pads on the bottom that seem to fall off too easily

Dell machines are great but just wanted to point that out. I also had coil wine with my 7390 but not the 9300; however I had the flex issue w the 9300

I prefer the 9300 for the 16:10 display. Going to 16:9 on razer was a compromise but just pointing out to prospective buyers what for me were legitimate issues with the 7390 and the 9300

Tempted... I just got my zenbook 14 4700u from Costco for $1010. Hardware-wise it's going to be a downgrade but XPS just looks wayyy nicer and USB-C PD... sigh..

Does Costco still carry that model? Both Zenbook and XPS are great designed. I may consider XPS if they gave same level specs and prices. But $1000 for 4700u is also tempting.

Good clarification and suggestion. I did not do much homework on it.

I guess the "developer" here means "without Windows OS" onlyFace With Tears Of Joy

I have my 13' system for photography. It's 90% of the time connected to external monitors.
The other 10% is when I need a small 13" size system to carry everywhere. This size is awesome for me.

I already owned a 15" but it was too big to me. A 14" is great if you have to work on it (no monitors) >30% of the time.

It's an online-only item and it seems that it's OOS. Had it for like 1-2 weeks already and it's been pretty good. Can't go wrong with a 4700u, 512gb ssd and 16gb of ram. The XPS just looks really awesome... I also have an XPS L521x which is super heavy!

i'm tempted to say next February as Dell tends to keep refresh for their next year model but we've seen some good discount right now. maybe we're lucky and getting a refresh right before the holidays?
