    Lightweight, lots of RAM, perfect bang for buck.

    I am not disappointed at all with this laptop. For the price it has great specs and functions very nicely. This is the first laptop I have used that makes no noise AT ALL. The design could be a little better, it feels a bit cheap and doesn’t seem too sturdy, but it is also very lightweight. Definitely a laptop I’d buy again.

    Good choice for a cheap, but capable laptop

    First off, to clarify a few unclear things on Best Buy's page: - There is no USB-C or fingerprint reader - Screen panel is indeed WVA and not TN - While I haven't checked directly, Dell's upgrade page includes support for 2.5 inch SATA hard drives - Windows 10 S Mode can be easily changed back into Windows 10 by a click of a button (try to download a "non-Windows Store" application and it'll redirect you to the page to make the switch) Some pleasant surprises: + Silent under little/no load (a few Edge tabs open) + Quiet under slight load (think YouTube vids & light applications) + Palm rests are always cool + Simple, lightweight design makes for a great laptop for college, students, and work + Speakers can get LOUD and produce a good enough sound. Never tinny or muddy. + Webcam looks good. Still grainy, but a little better than most. Mic is muffled, but oddly clear with voices. + Screen is better than expected. Comparing to a 99% sRGB monitor, you can only immediately notice that reds are slightly less vibrant (blues and yellows are more emphasized, but you won't notice unless you're looking for it) Not so pleasant surprises: - Mostly made of plastic, but doesn't feel cheap. Concerned about durability, however. - Mushy, non-backlit keyboard, but it is comfortable to type on. - Screen is a little dim than desired - Battery claims to be as long as 6 hours, but lasted around 2.5 hours with a mix of web browsing, video streaming, and light gaming (lowest brightness, best performance) - It does get reasonably noisy and extremely hot when under load. But never whiny, mostly loud air. This hot air flows out through the keyboard and can be uncomfortable to type. - Iris Xe can handle 2D games and older titles (720p), but playing modern 3D games is a struggle (1080p). If gaming is a priority, look elsewhere Overall, this is a steal at $449 and you probably won't find a general-use laptop with these specifications any lower. Remember to download any drivers from Dell SupportAssist the moment you receive it. I'll update this review in a few months.

    The i5 processor is faster than I expected. It can also run casual games and acceptable settings, but definitely won't be a replacement for gaming. 12GB ram is more than enough for everyday use. I'll be buying another one of these.

    I’m a nursing student and my computer is my absolute LIFELINE. I have purchased several HP computers that don’t make it a whole year. I’ve had a Dell before and it was very compatible, competent, easy to use as well as met my needs. As a nursing student my computer is used for an abundance of papers, exams and the list goes. I believe I made the best choice by returning to Dell as it has everything I need for me to be successful in my program as well as using it for personal reasons. Dell is the place to be!!!

    Pro's: No complaints with the laptop's performance, very interesting configuration (i5-11th Gen, 12 GB RAM, SSD) at this price range, worked as expected. Con: Unfortunately, it only worked well when it was on battery, and the moment I connected the charger/adapter, the fan started running at its full speed, noisy, not to mention the battery became unusually hot. It didn't change in my several attempts, and because it's a new piece, I had no other thought than to return this. Best buy did their best, they made sure to keep this customer happy so hey, I may go again and find something great.

    Solid laptop for work

    Decent CPU and RAM specs, enough for running work tasks with pretty heavy load (like many Chrome tabs, large Excel doc, etc.). Pretty fast SSD as well so fast system and application boot-up. The SSD capacity is a bit small, you might need an external drive for extra storage. Overall pretty good.

    I have always been a die hard HP fan. However, this time around I was looking for absolutely no frills, and other than the numeric keyboard, this Dell model totally fits my needs - completely quiet, very responsive, adequate memory, long lasting battery, great display. I actually waited to write my review just waiting for something to go wrong, but I really can't find anything to complain about. For the money, this model is an outstanding buy!

    I have been using this laptop daily and it runs well. Bootup is not as quick as some of the other expensive laptops I have tried, but that is not a deal breaker. The laptop wakes up from sleep responsively, which was an issue with the previous laptops I returned. I use it to work from home, browse the web, and occasional streaming. Overall, this laptop performs the same as the expensive laptops I tried, and for a fraction of the cost. I will update this review if anything changes.

    Great Laptop especially for the price. For most people, you really don't need any thing more than this configuration. I have several programs and browser windows open for work while streaming CNBC without any slowdown. I once build a server with similar configuration (32GB RAM and 1Tb HD) for $32k for work. LOL

    Very nice machine. I’ve had no problems. Performance is good. Turned off Windows 10”S” (nice try Microsoft). One feature I thought was hokey but ended up likening is Dell Connect. Very convenient to have text conversations with customers on my computer vs phone or tablet. It works better than other apps I’ve tried. I got this computer at a very good sale price. Very happy with my purchase.

I bought it for personal use but also for work, I am a teacher, and for grad school. The battery life is good.

    Very fast solid state laptop, super thin and light weight! I'm very impressed with this laptop and it was not an inexpensive price! You will be glad that you purchased this laptop with a super wide screen and enough memory to last a while. The Intel Core i5 is super responsive when interfacing with other computer platforms.

    I bought this laptop on sale for $449. It boots fast and has a decent display. It is not a touch screen nor does the keyboard have a backlight. I will probably swap out the NVME drive for a larger capacity in the future. WIsh there was at least one more USB port though.

    Great computer at a great price. We use this as our general computer - no gaming or anything like that. Having the SSD and a little extra RAM makes it much faster than our last laptop. Overall a great option and we're very happy with it. Recommend for sure.

    A fast good laptop choice

    Very fast laptop with a solid battery life. Ok screen and keyboard with a durable (if heavy) plastic case. In the end, I found a series 5 with a metal case and AMD Ryzen for just a few more dollars.
