Good deal on a good computer. I got the i7 version of this same computer for a family member and use it myself a bit. In my case I had various promos that made getting the i7, with its 16GB RAM, a better value, but at this price the i5 is a better deal. The i7 performs at most 10% faster, not noticeable in real use.

Pros:
- Very good performance
- Very good screen, 16:10 QHD+, glossy but not as quite as glare-prone as some (looking at you, HP)
- Hinge is fairly stable, unlike the wobbly ones on some convertibles
- Light weight for 17-inch convertible (a hair under 5 lbs, compared to the 6+ that this computer replaced, an Inspiron 7773 convertible)
- Quite expandable/serviceable, 2 SODIMM slots
- Large battery, decent battery life for a 17-incher
- Thunderbolt, so supports DisplayPort and Power Delivery (it comes with a barrel-type 95W charger)
- No coil whine on my unit

Cons (or less positive aspects)
- Build quality is good but not great - for example there are some sharp edges at the bottom of the computer
- Keyboard feel is good (on the mushy side but I prefer that), BUT the silver keys have poor legibility, especially if you have the backlight on in anything other than a very dark room
- Numpad keys are narrower than standard, despite there being a ton of space on the keyboard deck
- Bottom lid is a little hard to pry open, be careful and start from the hinges
- Port selection is decent, not great for the size of computer
- Runs a little warmer and louder than the Inspiron 7773 (which had an 8th-gen quad-core processor), not too bad for an Intel laptop though
- MX350 (I believe only on the i7 model) is kind of pointless, it performs no better than the Xe graphics

Two other tips:
- If you open it up, check to see if the SSD is the 2230 form factor, like on mine. If so, you may be able to sell it on eBay at a significant premium and replace with a faster but cheaper 2280 drive.
- Those who buy this are likely to use as a desktop most of the time, in which case set charging thresholds in Dell's Power Manager (on Window Store if you do clean install). I set mine at 50-55. This greatly reduces battery wear vs keeping it at 100% most of the time.

Dell's offers can always be combined with Amex offers, as long as you meet terms of the individual offers.

Try Capital One Spring. They're doing the 12% Dell coupons again. Not sure if it will apply to this model but worth a try.
