    I purchased this a week ago from Best Buy for $799. I knew from reading reviews that the display was junk and would need to be swapped out. I couldn't tolerate the terrible viewing angles and washed out colors.

    - i5-7300HQ
    - 8GB RAM
    - 1TB 5400 RPM HDD (junk)
    - NVIDIA 1050

    Upgrades
    - 256GB M.2 SSD ( $40 - originally from a Lenovo Yoga 910 )
    - 8GB 2400 Ballistics Sport ($65.71)
    - AU Optronics B156HAN01.2 IPS Display ($67.99)

    In the end, I have myself a very capable machine for a total of $1041.69. I highly recommend this machine. Heck if you're able to overlook the screen. Just a HDD and RAM upgrade would keep this well under $1k.

    did you have to do anything special to get the new screen to fit?

    How did you know that this screen would be an easy drop in replacement?

    where did you order it form? I ask because I've read a lot of stories of sellers sending a lesser compatible model

    I did somewhat of the same thing. I bought the lowest model inspiron 13 5000 2 in 1 before Christmas. I just installed my 16gb ballistix ram, and was all ready to install the 2 tb firecuda, but they shipped me the barracuda instead. So, I returned it, and am going to order the firecuda as soon as my refund is processed. Should be pretty quick after that is installed!
