Dell has the Inspiron 5410 14-inch laptop with quad-core Core i3-1125G4 processor, 8GB upgradable RAM, 256GB SSD for $400. This usually sells for $500.

https://deals.dell.com/en-us/memb...etail/eqxq
  • Core i3-1125G4, much faster than the more common dual-core 1115G4 and virtually identical performance [cpubenchmark.net] to the i5 and i7
  • 14-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) wide viewing angle display (IPS equivalent, 250 nits, 45% NTSC), matte, non-touch
  • 8 GB DDR4 RAM (1 SODIMM in 1 slot, 2nd slot free)
  • 256 GB PCIe NVME SSD
  • UHD Graphics - but this is not the same iGPU from the 10th gen Comet Lake and earlier CPUs, it's based on Iris Xe architecture with fewer execution units, still ok for light gaming
  • Ports: USB-C, 2 USB-A, HDMI, micro SD, audio
  • USB-C port supports DisplayPort and Power Delivery (but supplied AC adapter uses its own barrel-type power port)
  • Backlit keyboard
  • Fingerprint reader (integrated into power button)
  • 54 WHr battery
  • HD webcam with privacy cover
  • Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi / Bluetooth
  • Weight: 3.2 lbs
  • Construction: aluminum lid and keyboard deck, plastic bottom panel

I got this laptop late last year for a family member and also use it quite a bit myself. For the price, it's really hard to beat. The quad-core i3-1125G4 CPU is as fast as the i5 and i7 equivalents (which also only have 4 cores). The other pluses for me:

Good build quality - this has similar materials and feels a bit more solid than the 7000-series convertible I just got (7425), which has more keyboard flex
Decent screen for the price - mediocre color coverage, but far better contrast and viewing angles than TN screens you usually see at this price
Good port selection and full-service USB-C
Upgradability with 2 SODIMM slots, 1 of them free
Reliable Intel wifi chip (I can't stand the flaky Realtek chips found on many cheap laptops)
Good battery life thanks to fairly large battery
Good keyboard feel (decent amount of travel and a good balance between cushiness and tactility)
Nice "quality of life" features like backlit keyboard and fingerprint reader built into power button
Quiet fan

The only real downside is that it runs fairly hot on the bottom, so not great for on-lap use. However, Dell's Power Manager (download from Windows Store) has thermal profiles, allowing you to choose more performance, less noise, or less heat.

Dell is also selling the 5410 with the 11300H processor and 512GB SSD for $80 more. However, I do not recommend that model as it's not significantly faster and the H-series processor will certainly run hotter. Also, that one has its 8GB RAM split between 2 SODIMMs, so to upgrade you'll need to toss one or both.

ETA: Here's a YouTube review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1BydFwlGPw, just keep in mind the review model has the 300 nit rather than 250 nit display.

I have a 5410 with the i5-11320H. The heat is there, but it's nothing unusual or uncomfortable.

Does this have a Fingerprint reader? Also, I'm confused why they would include AC adapter with barrel tip for charging if this includes USB-C Power Delivery 2.0?

Probably many of them saw i3 and immediately downvoted, without realizing the huge difference between i3-1115G4 and i5-1125G4. Unless you're into gaming or professional-level content creation (in which case you're not looking at $400 laptops), this laptop's value is hard to beat.

Yes it does, I edited the post to reflect that. It's built into the power button, and quick and accurate.

I can't tell you why it includes barrel-type AC adapter when USB-C supports PD but it does. I'm typing this on the 5410 right now with USB-C powering it. Having 2 USB-C ports would obviously be better, but this is still better than just 1 USB-C, since you're not forced to take out the power adapter any time you want to use the USB-C for something else.

The 11300H in the $480 model is only about 10% faster [cpubenchmark.net] though - and that's just processor performance, in real-life use it won't even be noticeable. The iGPU will be faster though. To me the main downside with that configuration is having both SODIMM slots occupied by 4GB each.

Core i3-1125G4, much faster than the more common dual-core 1115G4

The single core performance on the 1115G4 is faster. 1125G4 just has more cores.

The dual-core 1115 averages about 7% faster in single-core, according to Passmark. But that's totally overwhelmed by the number of cores - 1125 scores almost 60% higher overall.

So I have a 5409, same machine with the 1115G4 CPU and mine has the 300 nits 100% RGB screen.

The build quality on this is significantly better than the HP i3 that always pops up at Costco and previously walmart and target.

I have to TD this deal because of the screen. The Dell depot mistakenly replaced my panel with this 250 nit screen and I noticed during POST. Dell promptly fixed the issue for me but with this low end screen at $400, this isn't a screaming deal at all. At $325 would be great, at $300 or less would be amazing. If it had the better screen the current price would be Ok.

I got mine Xmas eve '21 for like $295, was a steal.

edit: mine came with 4GB, that I upgraded to 12 and 128GB nvme which I've swapped with 1TB. With these specs I'd likely do the same upgrades so that's a constant.

Yours is almost certainly the 5402, not 5409, which is similar but sold in other markets. I remember the $300 deal because I bought one (and resold it).

The 5410 is similar to the 5402, the main difference being that the keys and keyboard deck are grey. The silver keys on the 5402 were difficult to see.
