QuestionWould you recommend this laptop for beginning college students? I imagine I wouldn’t use it for more than just online classes, Microsoft Office, and maybe some Netflix. I’m a business major, so they had no specifications on laptop requirements. Thank you!
- Answer Yes I would recommend this laptop for a college student, however, you will pay for the specs. This laptop isn't cheap. For less money you can absolutely get a really nice computer that is more than capable of doing what you require. That being said, if you do purchase this machine you will not regret it. I would try to see if you can get it open box for sure. The 4k display is simply beautiful and the laptop comes with a pen from dell included in the box.If you're willing to spend the money it is a great machine.
- Answer I do sports photography and this is a vital piece of my work. The hinges are rock solid and the over chassis quality is professional grade. Depending on how rough you are with it, you should only get scratches in the brushed aluminum. The screen is bright enough at 100% to be seen well in direct sunlight, but the reflectiveness of the screen might cause some issues.
QuestionWhat is the battery life and is their a holder or pocket or something to put the stylus in the computer
- Answer The battery life is not as long as they say. Maybe with some tweaks to the settings you might get a longer life out of the battery. There is no holder or pocket for the stylus pen.
QuestionI just bought this computer. The only thing that May cause me to return this is the Battery life. On a full charge, it will tell me that it only has about 3-4 hours of life, when the computer itself boast a Battery Life of 10 hours. Updates are current.
- Answer Hi Serg, My battery life currently tops at 5-6hrs with my usage, I don't think this PC could reach its said 10 hrs with this battery and such high specifications.
QuestionThe touchscreen does not work on the monitor. After I make Restart Windows the touchscreen works for a while I would bring it back to the store But I understand that it's been 14 days and I am can not return it. it is correct?
- Answer I had the same issue. I resolved it by installing all windows updates and dell updates (including the BIOS update). This resolved the issue.
Questionis the aluminium chassis of these laptop is durable and sturdy enough, when some times need to use it outside? Thank you very much for your answers.
- Answer Outside on your deck, yes. On the hood of your truck at a worksite, no. I hope that helps.
QuestionWould this be the best computer for someone who is starting college and taking graphic design.
- Answer Yes. It has 16gb of ram and a 4K screen and additional 2gb of Video chip ram. 4gb is probably better for intensive graphic design or heavy gaming but it wil add several hundred $ to the price tag. Look at XPS 15. As that had the extra video card memory 4gb.
- Answer No, the MX series GPU is a dedicated laptop based graphics chip that is integrated and soldered into the physical motherboard.
- Answer Yes, this product is compatible with Active Pen.
- Answer The specs say Bluetooth enable. But I have not tested it.
QuestionI want a good laptop for college but im a little worried about the storage size. Should I look into a laptop with more storage or is this a good amount that’ll last me a while?
- Answer Definitely need more storage. The onboard is only 250gb and I immediately had to buy an external drive so as not to put my data on the local drive. The earlier version of this computer had the ability to install a second hard drive in it but they changed the battery size and you no longer have the room for the second drive. Great computer though if you don’t mind carrying an external.
- Answer Yes, the external HDMI video port works fine with a 4K monitor and makes a great desktop combination. I would recommend the LG 27UK600-W monitor for brightness and sharp image. I also recommend the Logitech K780 Bluetooth keyboard and M720 Bluetooth mouse for additional convenience.
- Answer Doesn't have enough graphics capability
