You can find naysayers and fans for either make.
Even an IPS screen is back lit so they are even closer than first noted.
I'd check out if notebookcheck.com has reviewed the model you are looking at. The e480 adn 5471 are "series" so I can't look for you here. But you can as you most likely have this information somewhere.
Look at the notebookcheck for areas like display quality and heat areas. Or other areas you think important.
Hi, Im about to study for 3 years now and im wondering which one to use.
I have 2 final decisions-
Dell Vostro 5471
Both laptops comes with the same configuration-
I5 8th generation.
8g of RAM.
FHD screen - Dell is Led Backlit Thinkpad is IPS.
They are about the same price, unless you want to add 3 years warranty to the Thinkpad that will get eventauly 70USD higher than the Dell.
What do you guys think? Which one is more trustable and confident?
