Which one did you go for?

In reply to: Lenovo Yoga 13 720 vs Dell Inspiron 13 7000

I am in the process of hunting for an Ultrabook/2in1 Laptop as well. So far, I got the Dell Inspiron 7373 (the i5 8gb variant) however I experienced some lag and thought I wanted a 15" screen. I returned that and now I am on the Samsung Notebook 7 Spin 740U5ME but it is just too big and I am also experiencing some lag out of the box.. Now I am looking into the Dell you were looking at on this post. I am going to assume you went with the Lenovo? Either way, would you recommend the one you have??

The problem with dell is simple.

In reply to: Lenovo Yoga 13 720 vs Dell Inspiron 13 7000

They have a lot of owners so you will see more dead and problem dells than other brands.

That said, I find the Dell Inspiron line to usually have usable but not great displays. Look carefully and my bet is the Yoga will have a better display.

That makes sense

In reply to: The problem with dell is simple.

Thanks I appreciate the quick response. Your comment about the large number of Dell owners makes sense. A common comment on the Yoga is that the display isn’t as bright as some of the competition. The Dell has more memory and a faster processor but the Yoga may win out on overall quality.

Found it. Notebookcheck dives into the display.

The Dell was not great and neither was the Yoga. On the Dell "The relatively low brightness cannot defy omnipresent reflections even in shaded places. Some effort is needed for finding an ergonomically favorable position. The right screenshot shows almost ideal conditions with a wall in the back."

My reading on the Yoga is they didn't struggle with that but still wrote "sRGB color-space coverage was 84%, AdobeRGB coverage was 55%. That said, the panel is not suitable for professional photo-editing." But it did test outdoors and seemed to be usable in the shade so it must not be that dim. Maybe the store display unit is not turned up?

Go Lenovo eventhough Dell specs are better?

In reply to: Lenovo Yoga Raid BIOS

Thanks for all of the great responses. This is very helpful. So it sounds like I should go with the Lenovo Yoga 720 even though the Dell specs are better with the i7 and more memory?

If that's what you determined...

...from the articles I posted, then by all means you should do so.

Personally I'd say Dell.

In reply to: Go Lenovo eventhough Dell specs are better?

Just a bad experience with Lenovo but their products dont tend to last, and I'm not the only one here. If you thought dell was bad, read up on the horror stories online about Lenovo. Every single friend of mine who's bought a Lenovo laptop saw it either die and wipe itself clean or come with some horrible defect or ran into ****** customer support.

Dell for me has better build quality and with better specs, my vote goes to Dell.

Thanks

Thank you for the feedback. Is there another 2 in 1 that I should consider under $1000?

I avoid the Inspirons because.

In reply to: Go Lenovo eventhough Dell specs are better?

The displays time after time have been barely acceptable. To me, this and the keyboard along with other items determine if I will like using the machine.
