Fantastic laptop with a some remarks, October 16, 2017
Y. Alawadhi (NY) –

Verified Buy(What’s this?)
Ordered for a friend in view of the fact that its one of the early upgradeable Core i7 8th gen laptops you can buy, used it plugged in for 3 days so here are my remarks:-

CPU (5/5):-
The CPU is the 8th gen i7 8550U which is now a quad core instead of a dual core like the 7th gen was (i7 7500U).
performance increase is noticeable even with its low power budget (15W), the CPU can boost way past the base frequency, on lighter load it can go above 3.5GHz easily, on more multi-threaded load it stays around 2.5 to 3GHz on all four cores which is impressive.

My sample was able to be undervolted by 100mV on Intel XTU so that the CPU can keep the boosting over 3GHz at all time which is excellent for an Ultrabook.

RAM (4/5)
Comes standard with a Single 8GB DDR4-2133 MHz RAM, there is an extra slot which you can use, I added another 8GB stick for a whole of 16GB.
Dell says the maximum is 16GB but I’m pretty sure you can go up to 32GB RAM on this one.

GPU (3/5)
The GPU is Intel UHD 620, nothing to see here, excellent for basic material like watching movies.

Cooling (2/5)
An area where it needs improving, the CPU temps can go over 80C (even though the CPU is only 15W) because the fan kicks in way late and doesn’t spin quick enough, the bottom of the laptop gets warm to touch under heavy load, I would say its more warm than it should.

Only thing thats excellent about this area is that the fan is silent even when its running hot (Above 80C).

Storage (3/5)
Storage was a standard 1TB, there is only one space for a 2.5″ HDD/SSD, you don’t have an M.2 slot or anything, I had a spare 500GB Samsung 850 EVO so I replaced the HDD with the SSD and reinstalled the Windows and everything runs smooth and quick.

Spectacle (3.5/5)
The spectacle is 1080p IPS panel, in view of the fact that its an IPS it has a excellent viewing angles and deep saturated insignia.
Spectacle goes up to around 270 cd/m2 and it had a excellent calibration out of the box, I slightly adjusted the white color temperature (Used -4 brightness for Green and -8 brightness for Blue) on the Intel Graphics Control Panel to hit the Optimal D65 White Point, and the Color calibration process didn’t do much to right the insignia in view of the fact that they were already excellent out of the box, color coverage was 60% sRGB, 43% DCI-P3 and 42% ARGB, not exceptional but no that terrible either.

Overall (4/5)
Nice Ultrabook, above mean on weight and Thickness, subpar cooling but it excellent everywhere else and gets the job done.

I don’t know what happened to my original review… I really hope Amazon and Dell didn’t remove my review due to one negative comment I made. Here it goes again.

We like this laptop so much we sold off a 15.5″ ACER that my wife had been using and she switched to this one. The smaller size Dell is lighter, thinner, and quick enough for my wife’s use.

One figure that both my wife and I didn’t like about the larger 15″ laptop was that it had a numeric keypad built into it. That genuinely forces the keyboard to be shifted to the left relative to the screen. We just can’t get used to having that offset. In fact even on my desktop computer I use a keyboard lacking the numeric keypad which makes the distance from the keyboard to the mouse shorter. We also like the backlit keyboard. Both my wife and I use our computers in areas that can be quite dark in the evening where the lights in the room don’t illuminate the keyboard.

This 13″ Dell has a full size keyboard which is nice to type on. Both my wife and I are touch typists. The screen is sharp and sharp.

My wife doesn’t use much disk space so we replaced the 1TB hard drive with a 256GB SSD. It runs quite quick.

I did try some photo editing on this laptop and it performed quite well.

The SD slot is a must in our house. All of our cameras have SD cards so it is simple to pop in a set of photos for viewing and editing.

The bezel around the edge of the committed spectacle is over 1/2″, more than most additional laptops I’ve owned recently.

I really appreciate the volume rocker on the aptly side. I didn’t know how vital this was until I used my additional (much more expensive) laptop to watch some movies and that laptop doesn’t have an external volume control. I must use Shift+key to turn the volume up or down. That is particularly irritating when I have the laptop in tent mode.

Battery life is easily eight hours. I watched two 2-hour movies on it back-to-back and it only used 40% of the battery.

A nice budget friendly Windows laptop with upgrade potential, October 28, 2017

It’s been several years in view of the fact that I’ve owned or used a Windows laptop and I was pleasantly surprised at the build quality and functionality of this laptop for the price. Even as the laptop is plastic, it does feel well built and sturdy. I don’t know how I feel about the touchscreen yet. I’m an avid user of iPads and MacOS so touch on a laptop seems weird to me. Adding the touchscreen here, you can clearly see a compromise on the size and quality of the screen. Touchscreens have a bit of a sparkle look to them from angles and the screen is only 13.3″ even as the side bezels extend out into 15″ laptop territory. I’m guessing at 15″ touchscreen would cost too much. You are also limited to 1920×1080 resolution, which looks a bit weak when you are used to a MacBook Retina and additional higher resolution displays. When you set the spectacle to the native resolution you can get the better experience (viewing wise) but the touch aspect gets very trying to interact with due to the small size of the icons. This is made better by the inclusion of tablet mode which you can set up to activate when you rotate the spectacle around.

Ports are honestly basic… and include HDMI and USB 3 and SD card slot. There are no USB-C ports. At era the apparatus feels a bit slow. It takes about 30 seconds to boot up which is pretty slow compared to my additional SSD based machines. I was also curious as to the RAM configuration and what it would take to upgrade the apparatus to make it zippier. The rear cover removes with just a small screwdriver and you have access to the guts. Take a look at my domestic pictures if you plot to upgrade the apparatus after you buy it. The system ships with a single Samsung 8GB DDR4 SODIMM installed, which is excellent news if you plotted to upgrade it in view of the fact that you can simply toss in another SODIMM to get 16GB, but terrible because if you plotted on sticking with 8GB, you would have been better off with two 4GB sticks because Dell has eliminated the benefits of dual channel memory by only populating one of the memory banks. The 1TB HD is a pokey/cheap Western Digital Blue 5400 RPM model. This is no doubt the bottleneck of this laptop and replacing this with a nice SSD would make this apparatus way more pleasant to use. I plot to upgrade this to an SSD and upgrade the RAM in the coming weeks and this should dramatically help with boot era and application load era.

As the system ships, it’s a nice system that would serve most users fine. If you like to hot rod your machines then I reckon this apparatus has a bit of head room that some additional RAM and an SSD would unlock for a few hundred. If given the choice, I’d recommend getting the system with a 256 or 512GB SSD from the start. Ancient fashioned hard drives are just not a excellent fit for laptops anymore unless you really need a ton of storage.

I replaced the stock HD with a 512GB Samsung SSD and now this Dell boots in about 5 seconds and is zippy. This made a huge improvement and would really recommend it.
