Is it really new? for this price?
[MOD: Yes, new]
This really doesn’t look like a good deal to me. I would expect an ultrabook to at least have a dedicated video card in there…if that was the original price.
Can’t tell if this was a joke or not, there are no ( in before you post a link to the one or two in the past few years someone made) 12in ultra books with discrete graphics. I think the only thing this small, with a discreet card is the Alienware 11x and that’s hardly an ultrabook. They don’t start jamming cards in things until around 13.3, and even then expect to start at 1200 and go up.
The thing that makes this a bad deal is the low resolution display. The high end version of this came with a 1920x1080 display.
Have you even priced a Dell Lat E7240 (well, now they have the E7250, so this offering is last year’s ) with these specs? Don’t forget to add on the 3-year Dell warranty. The cheapest price on Dell’s Outlet site for this model and specs with the 3-year warranty is $1030 and it’s a scratch-and-dent.
So, even if this Woot deal turns out to actually be a Dell factory refurbished model rather than “new”, as listed on the Woot page, it’s a screamin’ deal on a good robust ultrabook. And if it really is new, then all the better. And on a 12" screen, the fact that it’s not full HD isn’t really much of a problem unless you’re going to project HD movies or other hi-res content through an HD projector or a large screen monitor/TV.
Every sale, I look for Linux. Every sale, I’m disappointed. Just once, Woot. Just once, offer Linux on a laptop and make me so happy. Please?
Nothing a quick format couldn’t fix.
Suppose you could always dual boot as well.
Excellent little computer. These are the little brother’s to the E7440’s that we have seen a lot of on here lately.
We have several of these in our fleet, including a few of the touch models.
Solid built, light weight, great price.
I thought linux users were typically more computer savvy than this
What is the max RAM?
Keep in mind, that it doesn’t say if upgrading the memory requires something that voids warranty - like removing the back cover.
I haven’t kept up with Dell’s policies and have no relationship with Dell other than being a customer, but in the past (~2-3 years ago is when I last checked), removing upgrade doors to add ram, etc. has not voided the warranty. Of course if you have to take the whole thing apart that’s probably a different story.
yeah, I don’t know their current policies either. Probably best to check with Dell first.
Just like the e7440, the RAM maxes out at 16GB
And opening the back is not difficult, nor does it void the warranty. No pentalobe screws here.
Hence the docking station…
The E7440 last went for the same price as this. Which is the better deal?
Not sure what the docking station has to do with the hd+ version of this laptop with the 1920x1080 panel but ok then, thanks.
it is not a great deal at all. I found a better deal on amazon
same model, same CPU, but 8GB memory and 256GB SSD hard drive, and no tax (except WA); I believe Woot charges tax to most of area in US.
