Now, before you get to that deal page and get confused, it appears that Walmart has the wrong model number listed for the actual product that's on sale. All of the specs for this laptop actually belong to the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 – not the Inspiron 14 3493 that Walmart has listed.

We confirmed this via Dell's own product page for the device, so you should receive a laptop with the above specifications regardless of what Walmart is calling it. Such a laptop should be considered a steal given what's inside.
