I see few downsides to this. Thoughts? Is it pen compatible?

As you can see this isn't a 2-in-1. There isn't a single traditional touchscreen laptop on the market with active pen support because it would be awful to use and would make absolutely zero sense to include.

The dedicated graphics are comparable to a Geforce 940M so don't expect much. Also, it's very likely that the included 1TB HDD is a dog slow 5400RPM drive.

I think you're thinking of the Core M processors. Those are completely useless besides browsing the web. Those are almost as useless as a chromebook! vomit

You sir are correct! A U processor would be maybe passable in a smaller laptop, but in one this size it's a rip-off.

Unfortunately the processor makes this a bad deal. Frown

If it had been a real i7 it would have been a great deal.

Besides the U processor, the other drawback is the DVD-RW.

It's 2017, and that means a DVD drive is just a waste of space and weight. Unless you wanted one for a specific reason of course. In that case, this might be for you.

And it has a harddrive and no SSD. That seems wrong on a $700 laptop.

The only thing this really has going for it is 16GB of RAM. And a 1920x1080 screen.

Any opinions on the following laptop?

https://www.costco.com/Dell-Inspi...16044.html

Its the right size for the girlfriend, but searching online it looks like the reviews might not be that great. Hard to find matching reviews for all these various 5000 series models. From a spec, build quality standpoint it seems like a good price.
