Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?
Yes! I recommend this traditional laptop computer based on its brand popularity. Let's go over the reasons why buying this traditional laptop computer now is good, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.
1. Dell is a known traditional laptop computer brand
Dell is a fairly popular brand among other traditional laptop computer brands. I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos/links down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!
One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.
2. This traditional laptop computer has okay reviews on the internet
Some people have good experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item, they have to go through the whole process of returning them. The point is, people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, so don't read too much into one good or bad review. With that said, reading multiple reviews can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.
This traditional laptop computer has moderate reviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this traditional laptop computer more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product below, so don't forget to read those to paint the whole picture!
3. Take a look at its price history
Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in three parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and some price prediction I made, just in case if you want to wait.
First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from May 7, 2020 to May 17, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply! Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this traditional laptop computer was $1799.33, and the lowest price point was $899.00. The current price is greater than it has ever been. If the best price is what you you're looking for, this could be potentially be a bad time to purchase. What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I never saw this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge. Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be much lower a week from now. It might be best to wait for a future price drop, but if this product checks all the boxes for you, don't wait to optimize for small gain.
4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products
The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing, or has some defect in the product? Whatever you buy online, this is a likely chance. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). But still, you want to make sure if the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, Dell Marketing USA, LP, has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!
5. There are other options you might want to check out
I found 3 brands that have similar products like this one: ASUS, HP, and the same brand as this product. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from HP. if you're looking for a traditional laptop computer with best reviews, A product from ASUS gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from HP I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products down below so please check them out!

What Fans Are Saying
I've had mine for nearly 2 years but I also bought this laptop when it was around $800.
It's never given me any problems with anything.
The camera is at an odd placement but if you really need to use a camera a plug in one would do just fine without any problems, otherwise if you don't have much need for the camera you should be fine.I have attached pictures of my laptop currently (I have accessorized with stickers... not how laptop will arrive).
What Neutrals Are Saying
Only thing I would want is a better battery life, but it's for sure enough for everyday use.
When I purchased the laptop, I thought the camera location (LOWER LEFT HAND SIDE) will not be a problem but, I am getting a lot of negative feedback from participants that my camera focuses from the bottom up not directly at my face with bad video quality.
I have called DELL several times asking for a replacement (different model and I was willing to pay any additional money), and their answer is: “Sorry, this is how we designed the laptop.” I should have to return it right away, but I did not have a back-up now I have to keep it and replace it soon, probably will not be a DELL their support from India is terrible.
My battery was dead after 20 months, I had it replaced with a new one but unfortunately it was not a battery problem but a CPU problem.
