I cant see this anywhere on their site?
Very strange, when I click that link or the original one, it doesn't work, but maybe it's just chrome being funny. Edit: Yep, pop-up blocker was blocking this one for some reason. My mistake!
https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops-notebooks-and-2-in-1-laptops/inspiron-13-7000/spd/inspiron-13-7370-laptop/cn37003?VEN1=100l1256&dgc=af&dgseg=dhs&cid=242036&lid=62986&acd=2397242036629860&VEN3=176803892724098771 that's the link i posted - works for me
FYI the link you've posted isn't working, but if this is indeed the same laptop I think the biggest concern most people will have is that it lacks a dedicated gpu. Seems like pretty decent specs for the price otherwise though, good for video editing I imagine. Edit: The link does seem to be working, it just wasn't for me because reasons.
Thats a nice cheap laptop
Educated guess, larger laptops are larger and generally have larger coolers and/or an additional fan.
Same CPU, smaller chassis, but higher class - educated guess, it will throtlle about the same.
Exactly, which is why I said to look at reviews to see how high it can sustain turbo boost. (y)
That is the 13" 7000.
Sorry yes I should have included some reference to random read/writes. Generally NVMe drives do have much higher IOPS. But like you said, I don't believe this laptop is aimed at those kind of use cases, it is a budget entry level laptop. Specifically for those users that think they need an 8th Gen i7 for watching youtube or using MS office.
What games run ultra at 60fps. What about pubg.?
Mine arrived yesterday. Very pleased with it. I was surprised it was in their sale too. Massive improvement over my old desk top. Not use to a pc that starts up so fast. Lovely keyboard with blue back lighting not red!. The screen is fine for the price but connected it to my 4K tv via hdmi for the ultimate picture. Games run at over 60 FPS in ultra settings as per reviews on you tube.
Does anyone know how often this deal will happen? I always wanted this laptop but of course when I check its on deal it's expired :( Appreciate everyone's help
I'm guessing that the deal might have been accidentally applied to the G5, I was surprised that it was on sale TBH, they have only been out a couple of months and Dell want to shift their Kaby Lake stock.
I'd give Dell an ear bashing, I bought just after 9am, ordered confirmed and dispatched, should be with me on Wednesday, so if you bought at 8.30 can't see why they would cancel.
No. All fine for me!
I googled it. If you press FN + Esc it enables/disables the function keys lol...All working fine now. However, do you experience it feels laggy sometimes?
Xps is a premium product, should be faultless out of the box.
Try the dell support. They're really good!
It started working automatically. Doesnt look smooth though. The blacks looks grainy and spotty. Might have to find a way to calibrate the display
Very misleading price
Price don't appear to be including VAT and delivery?
Price is a bit misleading...
£444.99 on Amazon
Thanks for posting this OP, ordered it this morning (y)
The screen is great on it. One of the best that I have seen. But the battery life just declines so rapidly - there used to be loads of complaints on the Dell forum but they magically all disappeared. Funny that. The over-heating is also a big issue as lots of people report some of the QWERT, ASD keys stopping working. The heat-pipe is under these and seems to get so hot that it fries those keys. There really is not enough ventilation in the case. A new problem is the sound just randomly stopping and a reboot being required. People have gone through driver hell doing all sorts to get it working reliably again or even just to get sound.
Fair comment, I bought it as a business tool but rarely use it evenings hence the game use. I was surprised it ran Fortnite and as I wanted to duo with my son I let him load it. I use dual screen with a 23 Dell monitor via usb-c but my son plays straight off the laptop screen - both run clear and detailed enough. As the laptop gives him access to more of his friends it is now his preference and it appears on par with the Xbox. Of course, I wouldn't recommend primarily for gaming. The laptop gets very hot unless seated on Technet fan tray which keeps it as cool as a cucumber
Yes. Enjoy the battery life whilst the laptop is new. Keep an eye on how fast it deteriorates in the coming year and report back.
Really, my son get a couple hours Fortnite before he realises he forgot to switch the plug on
It will be better than an XPS for gaming and should do the 'all round' stuff fine. I haven't looked at this model as I want the bit-sturdier and more compact XPS. It is worth checking some reviews to see if it suffers from thermal throttling too badly - the smaller XPS does, but it becomes less of an issue the bigger you go (the Alienware in the same deal will be much better on that side, but is massively bigger/heavier too!)
Cheers. Do you think the G5 I sent is worth it for a good all round gaming and general laptop? Hoping to pick it up tomorrow
No: this is the one: https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops-notebooks-and-2-in-1-laptops/new-xps-15/spd/xps-15-9570-laptop/cnx97003 The G series is more biased towards games. While the XPS doesn't have quite as good graphics card (1050ti) and is more of a business/premium/'do it all' option. Mine will be used for programming in multiple IDEs, WAMP server, *lots* of browser tabs and so on. I have a seperate PC for gaming, the little I find time for that! I definitely want 32gb RAM at least - hopefully the deal tomorrow will make it cheaper for me to get this and upgrade than to have bought the 32gb model in the first place. (Maybe get a bit back selling the 2x 8gb modules.)
That’s the g5? If you’re looking for the 9570 it’s here - https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops-notebooks-and-2-in-1-laptops/xps-15-laptop/spd/xps-15-9570-laptop/configurations?VEN1=sNZCtitic~281455280157~901dto13537&ST=xps%2B15%2B9570&VEN2=b~xps%2B15%2B9570&dgc=st&dgseg=dhs&cid=156008&lid=2056&acd=239715600820560&VEN3=413004490491084945
Hello. Is it this? https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops-notebooks-and-2-in-1-laptops/new-dell-g5-15/spd/g-series-15-5587-laptop/cn55813
Yes I just asked what's your best price? And went away to think about it. When they rang back we negotiated more. Within a day or so It was clear that they couldn't go lower so then I would buy.
Did you just ask them what they could give you?
I got at least 15% plus percent off in addition to sales prices. All new items.
What prices are we talking please?
Always ring up Dell sales. See what they can do with the price. Deal hard. You will get it for much cheaper than this. I have an XPS 15, XPS desktop and XPS 13 and got beyond code prices.
Isn’t this a bit small? The minimum is usually 24 I thought.
Just bought one, thx 4 posting. Delivery time around 1 month but l’m not in rush
Should post that as a deal. Decent spec for a ton.
I've just purchased the s2218h model from amazon for under £100 which has hdmi and build in speaker, also 3.5mm in and out. Link https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-S2218H-22-Monitor-Integrated-Speakers/dp/B06XS7NMLZ/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1531335043&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=Dell+s2218h&dpPl=1&dpID=41kYtHZq34L&ref=plSrch
The P and U series have VESA mounting holes but not S.
Never bought in a black friday sale off them but bought quite a bit with their coupon offers and always managed to get the discount no problem. I'll have a go next week when the xps goes on offer
It's a good deal in theory, but in my experience the Dell site goes down about 10 minutes before the sale and comes back up about 10 minutes after the sale. If you do somehow manage to get something into your basket it's almost impossible to get through check-out. I'm going to save myself the stress of that this time around.
its practically all ridiculously priced junk anyway. I couldnt even find a cpu spec for the xps. and who would bother? my nephews could build a much better rig much cheaper and the oldest is 15.
https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Pentium+J4205+@+1.50GHz&id=2877 cpu mark 2300. entire desktop box,power supply,hdd, ram, wasted. pc is a pile of RHINO Dung. NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE.
Should have took it back and hit them with the not fit for purpose spiel. I done it with my late fathers 50inch lcd which was around 6yrs old had a couple of bleeds on screen not biggies. Had i paid to have it looked at i coulda got it exchanged (Their words) i left it n sold private for over 100 so id try that line imo
I picked up this in the end: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00U2FDO4C/ Acer XG270HUA (144mhz) model - it was an Amazon Warehouse deal (Very Good condition rating) and with the extra 10% off for a stupid £263. The stand is a little wobbly by design but other than that I'm impressed.
Can anyone advice how to get audio to speakers when using this monitor via HDMI, say for an Xbox etc
I know it's too late now but I'll link you this since you might find it useful for your current setup too: https://winaero.com/blog/change-cleartype-settings-windows-10/
Thanks but I spent hours altering the display settings last night and it still looked rubbish.
Pls try that option, it will be a huge improvement. https://www.pcworld.com/article/242942/how_to_change_font_size.html
I would got with 27" 16:9 1440p anyday of the week. Seems a bit pricey for 1080p screens while 1440p can be had at the similar price.
Great monitor, using it now, yes it's worth the money. I got 10% off last month when I said I was going to return it, so worth a try. Ended up paying £530 from Dell. Pros: premium IPS panel, no backlight bleed, flawless gsync, 160hz with no dropped frames, tiny bezel, low motion blur, no coil whine or buzzing Cons: no speakers, not very curved (3800R), 1080p (which for me is a Pro, as it's my preferred resolution) If you ain't going 1440p with a 1080GTX, then this is the best gaming monitor you can buy.
It's 2560x1080 on a 21:9 34" so it's the same 81dpi as the popular 27" FHD monitors, ideal for circa 1m viewing distance. If you prefer your monitor in your face it's not for you, but it's perfectly reasonable. It's 2.8 Megapixels which is relatively low in terms of demand. For comparison FHD is 2.1MP and QHD (2560x1440) is 3.7MP. A super powerful card like a GTX980 will have no problem with it.
Does anyone know if a GTX 980 would run this well on max settings?
1080p on 34" are you sure the name is Alienware not OneBigFuglyPixelware?
It's good enough, certainly no complaints for what it cost. I'm just using it as a 2nd monitor so didn't need anything special, just more dots. As expected the stand is poo, no vesa mount, the buttons are hidden away and require a lot of pressure to activate. Screen wise it's nice and bright/clear but could certainly do with some colour calibration. Viewing angles have not been a problem, better than I expected for a TN panel. Not tried the speakers. USB3 uplink cable, DP to mini-DP and HDMI cable were included in the box, no VGA or DVI on this model. HDMI 2.0 is supported, but the default options have it disabled. If you are using a 4k console then you'll need to turn this on. DP is a better choice if you have the option.
Mine was just delivered, I'll not have a chance to test it until tonight.
cold, not blessed with gsync or 165hz, also i want the moon on a stick ;)
Dell 2716DG is worth a look, normally around £450.
The non-IPS Dell screen isnt great. Acceptable on a sub 300 pound basic laptop but not suited to mid or high end machines.
Was tempted but the reviews are terrible.
Not sure what you are getting at. This has a good processor, good ram and decent (for the money) ssd. Not top graphics but dell do sell gaming machines (alienware, on offer yesterday) My post for this is based on the discount 20%+ and seems as good if not better than anything else @ this money. Not sure what you bought for £499 as 1050 4gb isn't much to go on :D
Time machine issues notwithstanding I bought a 1050 4GB dell for £499 only a few moons ago
i5 8th gen, can't find better right now. You're not going to get high end gaming for £500 :D
whats the difference between the 5000 and 7000 2 in 1s? the 7000's dont seem much more than this. Only negative I can see on them is battery life, which this also seems to suffer with.
i thought so, but also though the i5 8th gen i posted @ £499 was even better but seems to be going cold............ ahhhh well..... not to worry :D
Excellent price, the 5000 series more durable then the 3000 series
sorry, i'll change it, that was meant to be on the £499 dell i posted
Appears the £399 is not for i5 8th gen but for : Inspiron 13 5000 - MEGA DEAL PRICE £399 (with coupon) £448.99 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i3-7130U Processor Windows 10 Home 64bit English 4GB, DDR4, 2400MHz, up to 32GB 128GB Solid State Drive Th I5 8th gen is £699.00 or have I miss something?
Hope this might help someone and me......... I bought 32GB RAM for the Alienware. So my brand new 8GB RAM is on flee bay you can search for Item number: 113190128083
Tried speaking with an agent this afternoon: 14:08:06 Radhika B1 Rhys, this is an R4 series. These have now run out and are End Of Life. These are no longer available to order. 14:08:46 Rhys Hi, it is letting me add it to my basket at the £1898 price? 14:09:54 Radhika B1 The order will get cancelled 14:10:25 Rhys oh
What a horrible company. After my dealings wouldnt go near them. Wouldn't be surprised if they made up the whole thing with the end of life rubbish of certain parts. If anything they should honor the sale with an equal replacement. They seem to have loads on the outlet..
Yeah guna leave it.
They have offered me the same one with a better screen at same price as there was something wrong with the screen but I was buying on finance and I have to pay out right for it now if I want it. So unsure what to do to be honest
We mine artrived broken, took them a couple of weeks to arrange a new 1 then a few days to take the 1st one away. Thought that was it, but a few day after that I got a message from paypal that Dell had refunded me partially (it was the full amount actually) Emailed to tell them of their mistake, got a message a few days later saying yes they had (duh) and they will look into it. Still waiting for communication or for them to take the money back again (just hope they take £800 rather than £1100, which is what it's on sale atm)
With mine it took about 10 days to get a replacement and DPD collected the defective one the day after I arranged it with them. The invoice bit is normal, just make sure you’ve organised a collection as they didn’t tell me when it was going to happen until I spoke to them and I asked for next day pickup which they did as I didn’t want the house of a box hanging around. Oh and just remember, if you want to exchange because of BLB or whatever, you have a month or two to get a brand new replacement otherwise it’ll be a recon one, albeit with much quicker delivery turnaround. Mine now has a June 2018 manu date so deffo new thankfully
No it was collected a couple days after. I had to chase for shipping of the replacement and the collection.
Was the new one dropped and off and old one collected on the same day, that is what they said will happen.
This is exactly what happened to me with my exchange. I swapped it due to backlight bleed in all corners, the replacement wasn’t much better but I really like the monitor so I’ll keep it and exchange another time again. Both monitors were manufactured on the same date. While their cs were friendly and helpful the whole process was a pain. Had to chase them to find out why new one hadn’t been released from warehouse as well as getting the old one collected. They also randomly sent me a tiny cardboard box to pack the monitor in!
ordered one when they were on offer beginning of the month still havnt received being shipped from china !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wtf !!!
Code not working
Just bought one for Cad
Just go to the main page: https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops-notebooks-and-2-in-1-laptops/inspiron-15-3000/spd/inspiron-15-3552-laptop?view=configurations And then select the first one which has ubuntu installed. Ubuntus free so you can just wipe the disk and installed whatever you have a license for.
let us know if it's ships!
been looking for a laptop deal and ofc I missed this :|
Last time something like this happened it wasn't honoured and it took a month to get the money back from Dell
Yup, looks like someone forgot to remove the discount that was already on the laptop, you can still see the £350 discount on the product page, it just gets removed on the basket. So it was accidentally stacking with the coupon lol. Nice if anyone managed to grab it though :)
the link seems to be dead on this one, expired?
