Hi guys,

Any idea which model is better?

1.Acer Inspire 5 vs
2. Dell Inspiron 14 2 in 1 5410

Both uses the Intel core i5 1135G7 processor+ 8 gd ram and 512 gd SSD.

Wonder why for the same spec Dell is more ex by $200 than AceršŸ¤”

Is it worth to pay $200 for a Dell touch screen n rotatable screen ?

Comments and advises are greatly appreciated;)

I like the 2in1 form factor myself. Have used it in tent and tablet modes often enough to say it's decent.

But Windows 10's implementation of tablet mode is still somewhat poor and somewhat glitchy. Am hoping that will change in future with Win 11.

Not so much the speaker. My long-term experience with it is with a Lenovo X1 Yoga.

It's just that Windows isn't built for tablet mode - so it feels unpolished and hacked together. It's still very much a keyboard+mouse operating system, so that touch usability is very sketchy. It works, but it's not intuitive nor natural unlike a dedicated tablet like the iPad. For absolutely basic simple tasks like reading a PDF document, it's acceptable. But to actually use it as an OS, it needs a lot more work. This is probably why the Microsoft Surface will not really do without a keyboard.

But just having the options and the ability to use it as such once in a while is really useful to me. Even in a classroom/seminar setting, to be able to pull up a blank whiteboard app and draw on the screen to copy whatever is written on the whiteboard by the lecturer is a big bonus in learning usability. Or those lazy moments watching Netflix, and leaving it in tent mode.

How's the touchpad? Any ghost clicks? Like it will click and hold even though you just click only?
