    I am typing this on my wife's inspiron 2 in 1. it has a pentium i3 with 4 gb of ram and a 500 gb ssd. It's super quick for everyday tasks like surfing the net, facebook, office 365 tasks and more. For doing this type of stuff, it's better than my ipad by far. I love this little device. anyone looking for an inexpensive 11" laptop, should give this little screamer a chance. For the price, not much compares in it's size range.

    Yeah my wife loves her Dell 7373 2-in-1 13" laptop. I think I paid 450 bucks at Best Buy on black Friday 3 years ago for it and it's been great. It's actually pretty well made. The only thing that Dell didn't do on it is install a big battery, that was for the XPS only. It still gets 6-7 hours of battery though.

    I think the battery is getting a little weak in this one now, I have been on this for 2 hrs now and it's showing 53% remaining. Other than that, it's killer. I paid 579.00 cdn for this 3 years ago during christmas, A month after I purchased my 5000 13 2 in 1 for 549.00 cdn. Both do everything we ask of them and more. I am sitting here, with a lightweight windows 10 device on my lap with touchscreen and all the goodies, and it's FUN!

    if the CPU is an Atom, battery life could get more longer

    No the CPU is not an atom, it's a mobile i3. I can't remember the exact model number. I always see the claim 4gb ram is useless. Well, the wifes laptop proves that wrong. For heavy lifting, sure it's not enough, for surfing, basic office stuff etc, it's fine.

    I think this device would be a killer deal if Dell started adding pen support for them. It would be a great alternative to a surface go device.

    Just installed Polarr photo editing software. Going to go try a few edits on this now. I will report back how it goes. I am guessing I will have no issues however, since polarr is a fairly lightweight program.
