Not terrible, but wouldn't recommend buying SATA boot drive PCs brand new in 2019. NVMe at the very least.

EDIT: It comes with an NVMe slot.

Since other specs good, is it good idea to buy at this price to upgrade the ssd myself?

Actually it looks like the laptop ships with an NVMe slot on the mobo, which means you could buy it, add an NVMe drive to the slot, use it as the boot drive, and use the SSHD it shipped with as a data drive.

I looked at the specs [dell.com]; NVMe/Optane + 32 GB max RAM + GTX 1050 + 4C/8T CPU + LED backlit 1080p display = Yeah it is. Especially if it ships with the fingerprint reader included (check the product page at Microsoft or chat with a support agent there.)

I believe the one you linked is the 2019 model. The one on sale is the 2018 model.

Did they not update the CPU then? Because I think the one in the model on sale matches the one on that spec sheet, unless I'm mistaken.

I believe the one you linked has a 9th gen 15-9300H. This is 8th gen. Also that one has type C.

Ah. My apologies, then. Hopefully the rest of the specs aren't wildly different.

No problem. I was researching this laptop on YouTube actually, and it seemed alright. Can update to NVME drive and RAM to 32GB.

Pretty good. I just don't like the kind of outdated look of this laptop.

Me neither, but for that price it's not enough of an issue for me to recommend against it
