For those looking for a laptop, the Dell Outlet has 14% extra off which brings a 144hz computer with 2060 and 16GB RAM to just under £1,000, and a spec similar to that above to even less.

Worth mentioning that these are mostly refurbs.

I'll be able to let you know soon I ordered one last night from there so hopefully all will be good.

Aye, although they are typically returns that they cannot sell as new.

I went for the Dell G7 17 - 7790 Gaming Laptop
It has 16gb ram and the RTX 2060 graphics. It's really overkill for what i need but i'm going to be using Adobe Premiere and After Effects on there so was looking for something with a decent graphics card and some good horsepower behind it
Just went for Dell Outlet G5 15 - 5590 myself, I wanted the same as the one you ordered (17" screen) but needed the 144hz and 512GB SSD. After the 14% voucher code it comes down to £975. i7-9750, 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, 144hz screen, RTX 2060, but... 15". I'm sure I'll cope! Hopefully cashback comes too, 2% at that amount is not to be sniffed at!

Going back a few years but I've had two. Both were immaculate. The motherboard blew on one of them inside warranty and they sent a guy straight round to my flat to install a new board. Can't fault them.

I bought a Dell G7 7590 just after xmas. Just under £950 for the i7 9750H, 144hz, 16gb ram (now 32gb), RTX 2060, 256gb SSD and 1 TB hdd. Condition was perfect. All aluminium build and definitely a high quality laptop. I wouldn't have known it wasn't brand new if the box wasn't OEM and I personally placed the order.

I'd advise you undervolt the CPU though. Mine was throttling after long sessions @ 100% CPU utilisation prior to undervolting and the G7 supposedly has the better cooling of all the G-series. Now it never throttles with a 0.165 undervolt, @ a consistent 4ghz on all cores for however long it's needed. I'd imagine ANY laptop with this CPU would benefit from an undervolt.

The Dell options need their own deal. Note that most of the Dell G-series options with the RTX 2060 have thunderbolt 3, too.

I got one last year, that wasn't the highest grade refurb, can't remember how it's graded but I remember it was one down from the highest and it was almost immaculate, it only had a 2mm dent/scuff on the corner that was barely noticeable. Seriously if I bought it brand new and noticed that I wouldn't have sent it back it was that minute.

How do you undervolt, in the BIOS? Mine's the same spec as yours aside from the SSD and screen size, so that will help I reckon, don't fancy burning it out!
£885 after VAT - 14% = £913.

Hi mate.

Search for 'Intel XTU'. It's a simple Windows application, developed by Intel themselves. As long as you are UNDERvolting, you'll be fine. There are plenty of videos online to help with this. Definitely give them a watch before attempting. It's certainly worth doing.

Good luck
Grand, cheers! Does it boost to 4Ghz only when it feels it needs, or constantly?

Undervolting will improve the performance, but it’s not a miracle cure, this is still a 45w chip and at 4ghz on all cores is using its short term power boost of like 70-80w so it won’t be able to sustain it indefinitely, if it does it means it’s not at 100% load. There is a big difference between a 4ghz speed at 100% load on all cores and 4ghz speed at 45% load for example.

The main benefit of undervolting is big temperature drops increasing lifespan, in my experience combined with a cooling pad I’ve seen 10 degree plus drops
I'll see how it goes, should arrive on the 31st according to the delivery estimate, just in time for a weekend of setting up and gaming on decent settings! I don't really want a hot jet-engine so I'll see how it goes first, using your advice later to see the difference.

Get a cooling pad off Amazon, they help massively. At worse you’ll see the same temps but with higher clock speeds and a lot less fan noise from the laptop, but in my experience you’ll see both the above and decreased temps too. I found the cheap Tecknet 3 fan one less than a tenner to be excellent as it has side intakes so you can even use it on the duvet chilling in bed or your lap on the sofa without stopping the air getting in from the bottom. It performed better than the Klim ones twice the price. Just my 2p
Gotcha! I do have a Logitech one, although it is a little loud to be honest. How is yours?

Both the Tecknet and the Klim ones I’ve tried were near silent, and meant the laptop rarely had to ramp up its own internal fans, so definitely a lot quieter overall than not using one.
Most cooling pad fans range from 92mm to 120mm, the fans inside the laptops themselves are tiny so have to spin like crazy!
Aye and they're super loud. I'll try with the one I have now, but near silent sounds great as I am overly sensitive to noise (hyperacusis) to the extent that my current laptop makes some noise from the charger that drives me mad.

I'll try and find one without LEDs, though, as they seem a little pointless.

Well they all seem to have LEDs, they are targetted at “gamers” lol. Not sure why they think all Gamers like LEDs, my PCs never have any form of LEDs, but I guess I’m in the minority

To be fair, once the laptop is on the cooling pad, you can’t really see the light anymore.

If your that sensitive you may still hear something, but honestly, I had a MSI Leopard with fans that sounded like a jet. Once I used a cooling pad the fans never went past a gentle hum
Edited by: "Pauley-B" 29th Jan
I guess combined they are quieter overall.

Hm, I could try and remove the lights then, see how much I mess it up aha. Yea, I'm really not the audience for these dark colours and LEDs; when did red backlit keyboards and a black chassis become the norm? Give me white or silver base with a black outline for the screen any day.

Hey thanks for this.

I just bought a great laptop at a great price today. If it wasn't for you, I would never have known.
Fingers crossed it all turns out ok
All good! I'm even tempted to order another myself.

Ah, I saw that on the Intel site it says it doesn't, but trying it now it seems to be okay! Just need to work out if I'm offsetting the core into positive or negative :P

I would watch some tutorials before you mess with it. Bobofalltrades on YouTube has some great explanations
Spot on, cheers for the recommendation.
