This, perhaps?
$319 At Office Depot ASUS VivoBook 15 Laptop, 15.6" Screen, Intel Core i3, 8GB Memory, 256GB Solid ...

The CPU is a bit better in the Dell deal, but the bigger SSD and backlit keyboard at the lower price probably makes the Asus a better value.

Anyone want to chime in on this i3? Looking for something basic enough for work. Could be a little cheaper?

Eh.... pickup only and nothing within 100 miles of me.

It was available earlier this morning. If the Asus had this CPU, I would've just gotten it. Alternatively, if this Dell had a 256GB SSD, I wouldn't mind paying the slight premium either. As is, the Asus was the better value, I think.

Processors are both pretty meh, not sure if you'd tell much of a difference between them, even though the Dell i3 is nearly 100pts lower (better) on the ranking.

128gb? 256gb should be bare minimum

Recently I had to forcibly upgrade to 256gb mac because apple macbook air with 128gb refuse to upgrade multiple times. I spent many months of dealing with removing apps and reinstalling apps.
I gave up and bought M1 256gb laptop.

Right. They are both equally slow overall. But the one in the Dell (the 11th gen i3) seems to have a noticeably better performance in JavaScript/web browsing benchmarks. And that may be perceptible to even a casual user.

Bottom line: The Dell was a no for me because of the too small an SSD. The Asus was spoiled by not having the 11th-gen CPU the Dell has. LMAO

Just tossing in another meh regarding the CPU. The i3-1115G4 is the 2-core/4-thread Tiger Lake i3. The real catch is the i3-1125G4, a 4-core/8-thread i3 (in any other generation this would be an i5 at minimum). This is a functional PC at the price, and perfectly specced for some basic productivity (think non-engineering university student laptop).

However, I wouldn't label it as a steal given that the price clearly reflects all the compromise choices that many have highlighted (CPU is OK if thankfully not a Celeron, RAM is just OK, SSD is just OK).

Good luck!
Jon

Ya, since this got posted I was reading the specs on it. For $400 it should be more. Screen, power, ram, SSD are all sub-par.

I find it humorous to see debate over 10th vs. 11th generation processors in an entry-level laptop, while my 5th-gen i3 hums along just fine even with big documents or spreadsheets. I see no need to replace it any time soon; everyone I know who suffers slowness either doesn't have enough RAM or has a mechanical hard drive.

But 128 GB? Although I appreciate that it's an SSD, I long ago sprang for a 1 TB SSD for not that much. It's nice not to worry about space although newbies probably don't need to save much locally, I guess. It's hard to see what is really that important to various users.
