Note: Lenovo officially says that the HDMI port is 1.4b standard. However, multiple reviewers, including Josh from YouTube, reviewed this laptop and found out the HDMI Port is actually HDMI 2.0. I had it for 6 months it and it supports 4k@60Hz using HDMI.

That one is significantly less powerful and has far inferior build quality. That has half the Ram, half the storage, 6 Core CPU vs 8 Core in this one. Also, this one is fully metal build vs complete plastic build on that Laptop. Instead, you can buy the Lenovo Flex 5 14 from Aamzon which has newer Ryzen 5 5500, 16GB Ram, 256GB SSD and 2-in-1 design. CostCo also offers the FLex 5 with 4700U, 16GB DDR4 and 512GB PCIe SSD @ $600
I bought this laptop at the end of last summer and ended up sending it back. Price and performance was outstanding, but the screen was a deal-breaker. Only having 45% NTSC drove me nuts, things that were supposed to be red looked more orange, blues and greens had a greyish tint to it, etc. FWIW, I don't do photo/video editing, I was using it for office work and very light gaming. Having it plugged into an inexpensive monitor to get a second screen drove me crazy because the colors were so different between the two displays. It's a real shame, because outside of North America they actually have a much more better screen on this model.

If that's the sort of thing that doesn't bother you then this is a solid deal.
Thumbs up to OP for the nice summary of specs, mentioning gamut, nits, soldered ram and weight. I just have to read the post to understand if it's for me :-)

If you want my opinion, I will pick up this one. That is Dell Inspiron 3000 series which is the lowest series of Inspiron, compared to IdeaPad 3 series. That has a full Plastic and a very cheap looking one, build, no Type-C port and a dimmer 250 nits display. Only advantage is probably user upgradable Ram and slightly better Intel XE Graphics.
But the thing is the TDP of the i7-1165G7 in Inspiron 3000 will be very limited and the performance will never reach it's full potential.

This model has far superior build with fully metal construct. The Display is also bright at 320 nits (as per the Notebookcheck review). Here the i7-4700U can run up to 35W and it has almost twice the multi-threaded performance over i7.

And the Lenovo is WIFI6 vs WIFI5 in the Dell.
I think the Lenovo is the far better deal.

Office Depot Dell says 4 hours of battery life. Personally, that's a dealbreaker

I bought similar laptop at Costco, Ryzen 5 4600U 6 cores instead of Ryzen 7 4700U 8 cores. It is a beast laptop for the price . Also, Costco has 3 years warranty if you have Costco citi card .

How's this for 1080p video editing? I do merge local sports 1080p video files which are usually 6 hour long. Any advice would be great.

Decent as long as you don't care about screen colors. 45% NTSC gamut is pretty bad.
