Yep, I had an older 17" Dell too, and it was fast, but my son needed one so I gave it to him. The newer Dell's sucked. I have owned Dell's and HP's, but I was very disappointed with them. I had a really fast Samsung, but gave it to a family needing it for their kids doing distance learning during this pandemic. Wish Samsung still made laptops. But all-in-all, the ASUS ROG laptops I have found to be the best.
