Buy the laptop now or after CES 2018?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm planning on buying a laptop for going back to school (which starts on March). I was thinking of getting the xps 15 9560 (i7 7700HQ, 16GB ram, 512 ssd, 15" FHD) and there are a couple of options.

1. Ask someone to buy the laptop from dell US and bring it to where I live.

  • this option is 333 dollars cheaper
  • if bad QC happens I can't return the product or check to see if there are any issues with the laptop, because the person I'm asking the favor doesn't know much about computers.

2. Buy the laptop from where I live right now.

  • buying it from the official website but it is more expensive.
  • if bad QC happens I could return the product and order new ones until I get a decent one

3. Buy a new laptop after CES 2018.

  • hopefully a new laptop that suits my needs comes out.
  • maybe a coffee lake i7 HQ processor?

If you can wait then wait. 6 core HQ chips will be much faster in multi core performance

Feel free to ask for recommendations if you're looking for a new lappy!

If it doesn't do it for you, it'll certainly drop a bit in price.


Unless you really need one, waiting is your best option.
