Good call. I'm seeing those same prices also.

And it comes with the 1050 instead of the useless MX150/250.

I'm trying to find info on that GPU. I've been looking for a 2 for 1 with a reasonable GPU. This deal seems to hit all the marks. I was initially going to go AMD, but it's been tough finding a 2 in 1 with a strong dedicated GPU.

In games the 1050 is roughly twice as fast, though speed should extend to rendering applications too. Against Ryzen's iGPU the 1050 is definitely the way to go.

Decided to jump on this. Have been looking for a decent 2-in-1 and this one checks all the 'wants' on my list.
Started with looking for a gaming laptop with intent to double as a work and play machine - I don't play but it was going to be for kids if needed. Bought an Asus machine for cheap (relatively) and it was 15.6." and thought I need a 17" for a good gaming experience. So returned that to Best Buy. Meanwhile got a 15.6" 2-in-1 Lenovo from Office Depot because it was just a good deal. I was getting to like the 2-in-1 option but missed a full keyboard. So began my search for 2-in-1 and I placed an alert on SD - Lenovo most commonly doesn't come with full keyboard in this size and HP does and Dell was hit and miss - so my search was limited to a Dell or HP. Soon enough found Dell laptop with MX250 - Open Box item from Best Buy with slightly higher price range. Was using it and liking it - it even has a nice dedicated spot for holding on the pen. And now this comes along and finally tying everything together - gaming option and 2-in-1 features. So I will be that guy who buys and returns laptops on a regular basis. Hopefully this is the one and I can stop this circus for a while. I imagine this whole exercise is not too uncommon among SDers.
Plus I am hoping the Asus machine has less of bloatware compared to a Dell one. Although I will miss a spot to keep the pen, and also USB-C charging (not sure though). Wonder if RAM is upgradeable..

I recently retired my Asus V5 laptop to a farm up-state at the in-laws where it can check email and stream kids videos for the rest of it's days. It's been an incredible laptop the last 4-5 years and has zero issues other than the space bar can be flaky at times. Given my personal experience with Asus those deals always catch my eye on the rare occasion they pop up.


The primary motivation to get something new is the desire to have a 2-in-1 form factor for when we travel.


I replaced my Asus with an HP Envy x360 2-in-1 from a recent Slickdeal that was about $650 for an "Open box - excellent" that showed up basically brand new. That and having my finger on the pulse of the mid-tier 2-in-1 market for the better part of a year now is what I'll be basing my comparisons on.


Pros:
Windows Hello (IR sensors)
Lots of storage if you need it
4k Display if you're into that sort of thing
Decent graphics if you're into that sort of thing


Cons:
Lots of storage space soaking up resources if you don't need it
4k display (I prefer 1080p for improved battery life on a display this size)
Hopped up graphics is something I don't need
No USB-C (Really!?) [edit: looks like there's one USB-C on the right side. No mention of it all in the specs let alone if it's capable of charging]8th gen i7
No WiFi 6
Heavier at 4.5lbs


Summary: Decent machine for 2018 standards but recent advancements in hardware have left it feeling a bit antiquated. $1,000 and nearly 2020? Hell no. If it were one of these 2.5lb featherweights with all the same specs, maybe. Even then though the lighter 2-in-1's are offering better specs at a lighter package and similar price points.


Even with my stellar track-record with Asus portables I'd pass on this deal because I feel as though it's aging hardware that deserves more of a discount when you compare it directly to competitors offerings approaching 2020.

You must be referring to the Dell 7000 Inspiron? The only thing about this I don't like is the regular optical hard drive. 256 SSHD is too small. Also, 8th gen i7. I haven't seen the ASUS, build quality, screen brightness (what are the nits?), so very curious, please let us know when you do that comparison. The Dell seems very well built for what it is.
