    I'm in the market for a nicely built (metal preferred) 1080p laptop with a quad with HT. These two seem great for me. Both basic models that i'm personally interested in start at $779. Seems great to me and both feature Kaby Lake R i5 8250u with is a 4 core 8 thread chip. NO gaming whatsoever but I will use Abobe Premiere for it's most stressful software. Seems like the 15" model is the better value with the dedicated 940. But I love the 13" form factor. I also prefer the clam shell design over the 2 in 1.

    Please give me your thoughts on these and potential issues.

    Lots of views but nothing? Perhaps it's too new?

    It is pretty new, but i've got the top config you can get right now (in my sig)

    The only thing I can fault it for is the battery capacity is quite small (38W/hr) so if you are stressing the system out while on battery it doesn't last much longer than about 2 hours, just simple web browsing it lasts 4-5 hours. As for the performance with the i7 8550u it is very fast, and while it throttles it doesn't throttle enough to hurt performance, as a matter of fact under sustained load the cpu only gets to about 80c. It definately a laptop to consider. Check out my benchmark thread here http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...ing-behavior-on-dell-inspiron-13-7000.809595/

    Ive had the 15" 7570 Touch for 3 weeks now. i wrote a lengthy review on dell.com, title: "3 week review: The good, the bad, and suggested improvements"

    Overall i like it for how much i spent. no blue screens, runs cool and quiet, no issues except some niggles related to windows.

    Bro-tip: find a coupon (i got 10% off). Also, slickdeals sometimes has rebates on Dells. Luckily i bought mine during the 2 day window for their last rebate and now im also getting a $100 gift card sent to me.
