NVME or bust for laptops now
I hope you see all the "unhelpful" ratings your comment is getting.

Most people get by fine with SATA 3 spinning hard drives, this is M.2 solid state which is much faster than that. Where is the speed difference going to be big enough to matter for most people? Can't imagine that being an issue for this type of device (tablet/laptop hybrid).

I pulled the trigger on this. I talked to the guy who does our purchasing and he says he pays around $2k for these from Dell at these specs.

As always, it's a matter of price.

In real-world performance, 99% of people will see no tangible difference between an M.2 SATA and an M.2 NVME drive. If the price difference is small, yeah--go NVME. Don't stress over it though.

Dell pricing is inflated for business purchasing. That said, this is a lukewarm deal for the 5285... The 7285 at this price would be hotter.

Over the last almost 10 years I've slowly swapped out every conventional drive for an SSD. My gaming rig has four or at least it used to have four in a RAID 0. I pulled one to replace a failed drive elsewhere. I have two HP Envy DV7 laptops that I bought from pawn shops in the past. Normally they come with dual Drive Bays. I put an SSD in the empty Bay, installed Windows 10 on it and formatted the conventional drive as a storage Drive. I really don't care myself for conventional platter Drives. You might as well stick with the two cups and string for communications while you're at it LOL. Whenever somebody complains to me about their desktop or laptop performing slowly and registration has set in. My response 90% of the is, put an SSD in it and keep it for several years more. I always mention "make sure you keep the SSD for your next machine". I was a teen during the Timex Sinclair, Commodore 64 Commodore 128, Atari 600 XL and 800 XL days. I owned most of those minus the Timex Sinclair LOL. My friend in the next apartment building owned that one. So I can really appreciate ssd's and whatever comes next to speed things up :-) personally I still think high-end products as far as the latest and greatest are still too overpriced. Motherboards are now costing $500 for something that can make breakfast for you LOL. I've built plenty of systems over the years. Though I think it's kind of Bonkers in some regards what the cost of some things like flagship video cards for example go for, good grief. Damn crypto miners.

A year ago I came across an old Core 2 Duo HP xw 4400 workstation in great condition that someone had discarded. I took it home, put a bunch of OLD upgrade parts in it. This included a 128gig Samsung SSD, 1 gig HD 6700 Radeon video card, a couple extra gigs of RAM for a total of 4, and Windows 10 on it. I have to say, the damn thing runs like a top compared to the majority conventional Drive based products out there. Of course when I say this I mean boot up time and to desktop and average usage and clothing launching apps and surfing the internet watching YouTube videos Etc. Of course there are limitations due to the processor, bus speed and several other factors in design. The SSD is definitely not one of the bottlenecks. I love doing things like that, resurrecting Hardware to run better than originally sold.
