It is as good or better:

The 3 year warranty is encouraging.

It will support Windows 10 as all new computers do.

Make sure you get Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and make sure the CPU supports VT-d virtualization . Get it as is or with large SSD drive and 16 GB of memory (moves the cost up).

I like Lenovo, but this looks to be a decent machine and Dell will back it.

At the top manufacturing level, Lenovo and Dell are pretty close.  The Lenovo Think... brand (from IBM) remains top of class.

I like the onsite / depot support from Lenovo, drivers from Lenovo and portable engineering across operating system from Lenovo better.

Thank you and good luck with this door buster. It does look decent.
