Looks like same price as last December.
Should I wait for it to drop to $500?

If you don't need it now, by all means wait, but this is the current generation of technology so an additional price drop isn't likely in the near term.

I think this is a great deal. You get a much better build quality compared to the Aspire series. Plus I think this swift gen has a samsung nvme ssd. Also the 2+2 costco visa warranty is great.

Could you please explain the 2+2 warranty to me? Forgive my ignorance.

When paid with a Costco Visa card, it extends the basic 2 year warranty offered by Costco to another 2 more years, so a total of 4.

You get 2 years of Costco warranty service by default which means they'll pretty much replace the laptop if there's an issue. The additional 2 years are through Visa - I've had to file a claim with Visa before and had no issues with them.

Swift or the Dell? Touchscreen isn't too much of a factor.
