Had to look at Dell’s official web site, to clarify their details:
> Inspiron, For home and home office
> XPS, Designed to be the best
> Alienware, For high-performance gaming
Financially poor persons like myself just buy the best bang-for-the-buck. So five years ago, I bought a “factory-refurbished “DELL XPS 15”. Half the original price, bought here in Australia, from a factory-authorized seconds-seller. This was a factory second-hand, retail-reject. It had extremely poor third party reviews from the dummy-users that bought this very first version of the Dell XPS-15.
After my purchase, I was pleased to discover how the old hardware could be easily “updated” with third-party products. The HDD was upgraded to a second hand 2 terabyte HDD, costing just 60 dollars on our local eBay. The M.2 tiny SSD was upgraded to a terabyte Samsung 850 EVO SSD. They were very expensive, when first released, but now they are just half the price I paid.
The Bluetooth & WLAN were easily “upgraded” with low-cost USB plugins. Now I’m looking for another notebook “upgrade”, with a 8th generation i7 CPU, DDR4 memory etc. The current new XPS line is lacking in hardware ports, compared to the cheaper Inspiron lines. Alienware is not needed in my nursing home lifestyle; too much formal academic work ahead for me, before I go to heaven, soon.
Competing with the Dell Inspiron lines are the HP notebooks. Touch screens are OK. Tablets & 2-in-1 are lacking in power & ports, compared to notebooks. New products are being released each week from the China-branded factory products. (Dell, HP, etc products are generally made & assembled in China also).
So thank you TECHARP. Hopefully your publications will eventually lead to my next upgrade, to replace my old Dell XPS.15 (2013 model). Luckily here in Australia, we can purchase most retail goods online. Whether the seller is local or overseas seems to not matter to us here in Australia.
