Dell Laptop - Inspiron 15 5505: 15.6'' FHD WVA, Ryzen 5 4500U, 8GB DDR4, 256GB PCIe SSD @ $450 ($405 using AMEX offers YMMV) - STARTS 11/20

This laptop is currently on sale for $490 but will be marked down to $450 at 11 am EST on 11/20:
https://deals.dell.com/en-us/productdetail/63co

There is a current SD thread on it with add'l info:
https://slickdeals.net/f/14541173-dell-inspiron-15-5000-laptop-ryzen-5-4500u-15-6-1080p-8gb-ddr4-256gb-ssd-vega-8-win-10-489-99-dell?v=1

Main negative is the dim screen being only 220 nits. Still IPS but this is good only for indoor usage, and if color accuracy is not super important (ie: photo/video editing work). Great specs otherwise - expandable memory, space for 2nd SSD, backlit keyboard, fingerprint reader.

AMEX has 10% statement credit under AMEX offers so that brings it down to $405 but of course YMMV. Also, Dell gives 10% off if signing up for their emails - not sure if this will work for this deal but I signed up just in case. If it works, would bring this down to about $365. I listed email sign-up link earlier but guess it doesn't work on SD so you'll have to google it.

How bad is a 220 nit screen in a room lit by natural light?

Not terrible, but you'll likely be at 100% brightness or close to it. Any direct glares (like an open window behind you) will make it unusable.

Looks like shipping date is already Jan 2021. Still hoping to grab one when it goes live. How do I get the 10% off email? I joined Dell rewards for the free expedited delivery but never got a discount code.

220 Nits is basically as you will ever see any laptop.
Upper 300s to Low 400s is Great, but you will NOT find that on a budget laptop.
(Yeah...Someone will find that one exception in one deal months ago...)

Mid to Upper 200s or maybe even 300 if you are lucky in this range.

Cool, TYVM. Going to assume since there's a NumLock key that they still work as cursor control keys even though they aren't labeled for it. Not a bad layout for the most part. Reps.

I know the laptop doesn't have "Thunderbolt", but does anyone know if the USB-C port can still power a docking station with two monitors attached? Specifically I have the Dell WD19DC from work and I'd love to be able to swap my work laptop with my personal using just the one cable.

FYI if you are looking to upgrade to 16GB dual-channel memory, lots of places are sold out of 8GB DDR4 3200MHz SODIMM sticks. Looks like B&H has them available for purchase but on backorder.
