Talking Dell Inspiron 14 5000 (5480)

Checked with Dell customer service, they give me 2 Dell Inspiron 14 5000 (5480) with different configuration:

$1199
- 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-8565U Processor (8MB Cache, up to 4.6 GHz)
- Windows 10 Home (64 bit) English
- 8GB, 8GBx1, DDR4, 2666MHz
- 128GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive + 1TB 5400 rpm 2.5" SATA Hard Drive
- 14.0-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) Anti-glare LED Backlight Non-touch Narrow Border IPS Display
- NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 with 2GB GDDR5 graphics memory

$999
- 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-8265U Processor (6MB Cache, up to 3.9 GHz)
- Windows 10 Home (64bit) English
- 8GB, 1x8GB, DDR4, 2666MHz
- 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive
- 14.0-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) Anti-glare LED Backlight Non-touch Narrow Border IPS Display
- Intel® UHD Graphics 620 with shared graphics memory

My purpose is only for work and study, so I will multitask by opening many different applications and Google Chrome tabs. May I know which one will be better to get? Thanks

Dell Inspirons are not known for good build quality.
Since you didn't mention gaming, I assume discrete graphics is not important. For heavy multitasking, 12-16gb will be more ideal.

Also if long battery life is not a priority, a customised Thinkpad E495 can be a more suitable laptop for you & is also cheaper.
If battery life is important, then stick to Intel.

The one with i7-8565U will better because would it has full 8 GB ram without shared it for graphic card and also has 1 TB hard drive.

Later install applications in SSD and files in hard drive.

Not to mention the LAN port is fast ethernet 100mps but not gigabit LAN.

E495 currently is the popular budget laptop. Take note battery is about 4 hrs, if you want longer battery time than consider Intel laptop.

IMO get the $999. I believed it still has 3yr onsite premium warranty which is a steal. It can be easily upgraded as it has 1 free RAM slot and 2.5HDD slot. e.g. Add 1 more 16Gb and a 1TB SATA SSD (totaling ~$230?) definitely will be more worth it. The storage from the i7 model leaves you neither here nor there...

Have you checked out their official refurbished outlet? I recently bought an xps from them and it was roughly SGD 400 to SGD 600 cheaper than brand new and also comes with warranty that includes on site support. The unit I received was pretty much brand new and I couldn't have been happier with it.

Anyways, I did see that they have a couple of inspirons you could check out. Hope it helps
