Dell Vostro 15" 3500 Laptop | i5-1135G7 | 8GB DDR4 | 256GB NVMe SSD | $497 after discounts and CB

Much better than the Inspiron deal, a few shortfalls, but this is Dell business line, you get a better build quality, faster charging, better cooling, numeri keypad, better security, better GPU and latest Intel i5.

In order to achieve the $497 price you need to:
  1. Go here
  2. Downgrade to Win10 Home to get $100 OFF
  3. Use coupon SAVE50SBAFFFY21Q4 to get $50 OFF or sign up for a 10% OFF coupon (takes around 30 min to get one) using this link

if you use the 10% sign up coupon, the price would be down to 540$. Add 8% Dell Technologies for Work (not Dell Consumer) Rakuten CB and your final price would be $497 before taxes. Taxes would be obviously calculated before CB.

*Even though the deal is a doorbuster, both 10% sign up and the $50 off coupon work on this deal although they cannot be stacked.
*Unidays coupons do not work on this deal.

Not bad. Careful of warranties that might sneak in.
Still a Public Mobile customer.
Looking forward to dotmobile.

Overall, decent deal. Vostro is suppose to be of better build quality than Inspiron, but that's questionable in my experience.

At 15" I still favor the Dell Inspiron 5505.
- Intel WiFi 6 AX200NGW vs AC WiFi 1x1
- USB-C DP + PD vs USB-C Data Only [No 4K60 Output via HDMI]
- (2x) NVMe Slots vs ????
- Ryzeon 4500U vs i5 11th Gen CPU [Ryzen is considerably faster]

The only major technical point is the integrated GPU on the Dell, which may be somewhat better than the Ryzen equivalent.

With discounts, the Dell 5505 is $550.79 (after Unidays and Rakuten).

I think the Vostro is a good buy if you're a business person looking for a safe Intel laptop that may work better with legacy applications. It's not really an issue nowadays, but it's a safe choice if your business has finicky legacy applications.

I'm massively biased, but those are my two cents.

That date isn't that bad knowing the issues they're having. The issue is specifically the 15" screens, Dell has been having major supply chain issues with that specific component. I placed an order for a few Latitude 15" last month with an ETA of the end of Feb.

for the Dell Inspiron new account code doesn't work anymore, so it is $679+tax=767 vs 549+tax=620 (i'm not including Rakuten CB for comparison), about $150 difference... so everyone need to decide what's better for them (I liked this deal better), thanks OP

Would this be a good option to have my MIL buy for home use? She doesn't need anything fancy and this looks like its decently fast and up to date specs / features. Deal looks like it leaves a bunch of other deals behind it?

It would not work for business line laptop. Use coupon SAVE50SBAFFFY21Q4 to get $50 OFF instead
