    Hello all,
    I was wondering if the Dell Inspiron 15 i5565-5850gry is a good laptop to get for under $700 with the specs it has? Any help and tips would be appreciated. I'm more of an Android guy, but I found out that a Windows Laptop is something I need. Thank you

    This is the link for the Laptop as well:

    It'll work but I would personally go for something else.

    But don't think that means you shouldn't get this PC, I just value different things in a laptop than you might. We know your budget and you just gotta think about whether you want a laptop that's larger or smaller, what features etc. etc.

    For example I value repairability, flexibility and portability over raw performance, looks, graphics capability and having a large screen. (Went for a business-class convertible ultrabook.)

    My friend on the contrary chose a consumer notebook with a 17" display and a competent level of gaming chops. It's a lot larger and heavier but it can power through some games and editing tasks mine won't do so well in.

    Thank you for the reply,
    I would like one with great performance, design, and mid-gaming capabilities. It's just that I don't want to spend more then $650 because I don't have that kind of money to spend. This one seems to offer all of those, with a 2 year warranty from Costco, and a free year of McAfee service (as much as I don't like the owner himself) as extra. If you have any other laptops or 2 in 1's that you would think would work, than I would love to see them, just in case they offer a better deal or better performance, etc. Thank You

    Preferably 15 inch though, although a 13" would be OK as well.
