The truth is, if you are going to spend this much money on a laptop, it may as well be damn perfect. If you are a gamer, it might not be suitable because its not native 1080p, depending on driver support and whatever processing is going on to downscale the resolution. If you are a photographer, this may well be an excellent device. Check reviews for the build quality, cooling and performance first though if you are considering buying.
I'm glad some people can see beyond their own narrow needs and recognised a good deal. I got this Dell to run Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere, OBS recording and streaming and other broadcast/multimedia where 4K is standard (if not a minimum). If anyone has a better price on a 4K hex-core i7 1060+ laptop, please share it.
Completely agree with HOTPOT. Depending on your needs , if this is ment to be for high FPS gaming then yes refresh rate is important and you probably could get a better example of 120hz panel from gaming laptop. But for UHD video and profesisional photography 100%sRGB panel that goes with it is aboslutely amazing! Very hot deal !!!
Yes, indeed. But as an old non-gamer, all that pixel maths has been an education for me. XD Compared to the Asus post which is approaching +50 degrees, this Dell for an extra £70 has *16GB RAM :Asus=8GB 512GB SSD :Asus=256GB IPS4K Scrn:Asus=IPSFHD Don't get why this is so cold. As I said, not a gamer, but I would have thought someone doing cad or similar, can use all that ooomph in the i7 and benefit from the 4k display.
I agree with you hugekebab, reading the posts on redit. Seems like a problem Nvidia and AMD have created, that didn't need creating. I wonder if the problem exists if you set your Windows resolution to 1080P before entering a game?

this is a refurb (aka used) and 8700 sell used for about 180quid on ebay so not that much of a stretch
Apologies, you’re quite right too, cpu prices to the average customers are disgraceful, I mean atleast Intel’s are. AMD seems to be more tempting every day with the consistent prices from the blue team (lol)
Well I know that but I would never pay that when I can buy a better processor for less, I was talking rock bottom/wholesale prices for each component even tough your probably right should of priced at around 220-230.
An 8700 is about £300, not 150 lol
If anyone finds this at £450 please post it.

Watch this and you’ll realise 4K is pointless on a laptop
4K is a total waste of money for gaming even more so on a laptop. Your wasting the power of the GPU to generate 4 times as many pixels on a 15” screen that you won’t be able to tell the difference. That power is better used to drive FPS. This is why most gaming laptops just come with 1080p as it’s pointless.
PC specialist have a similar spec with ssd and 4k screen for around £1450. 3 year warranty if I'm correct. This seems to be best I can find.

Dell Inspiron (refurb) 13 7370 i5-8250U 8G DDR4, 256SSD, FHD, 1Yr On site warranty for £515.99£515.99
Recent version of the Inspiron 13 (previous versions have been more plasticy!). Make sure you pick this one, as there is a DDR3 version for the same price (may just be a typo). Si… Read more
All gone now, AFAICS, so marking deal as expired. They have others at same price (again 7370, with (probably misprinted) DDR3 1600 RAM but main diff seems to be 1 yr collect and return, not the on site that the deal above had. They also have more expensive ones, with 3yr on site.
Not all models, no. But keep repeating and it might eventually happen...
Minor follow up-having posted the deal, I actually splashed the cash and bought one. Free next day on TNT, laptop looks untouched (slightly worried as it is a refurb) EDIT: The HDMI output supports UHD @ 60Hz, which I wasn't expecting (most reviews mention HDMI 1.4, not 2.0), so no need for USB-C to HDMI 2.0 dongle.
Thanks for sharing your first deal @CaptainKremmen heat added :D
Anyone had a bad experience with recent Dell LCD panel quality? From Dell Outlet I ordered a Precision 7510 (2017 refurb) with a 15.6" FHD 'IPS' panel but it turned out to be their basic TN panel, with the worst LCD picture quality I've seen in about 10 years. Appalling contrast, made worse by a really narrow viewing angle. But I was lucky in that Dell had got the details wrong and they found me a replacement with the IPS panel. Amazing in comparison. Always check the specs of those panels...
The SSD is far too small for a gaming laptop and at this price.
Lovely laptop for that price, just a shame about the screen. Same with the others linked. Pro's and cons for each. Personally I got my eye on Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming or Acer Predator 15. A few hundred more but worth it.
I think I would throw this out as a good middle ground https://www.scan.co.uk/products/156-msi-ge62-7re-apache-pro-28ghz-core-i7-7700hq-8gb-ram-128gb-ssd-plus1tb-hdd-geforce-4gb-gtx-1050t Few quid more but new and doesn't have the bad screen of the Dell nor the piss poor build quality of the ROG.
Although the gfx specs are slightly better, you are down on RAM and Processor. Also having bought one of these last year in the black friday deals, i would advise anyone thinking of doing so not to. The quality is shocking and dealing with the abysmal 3rd party company who handle ASUS warranty was even worse. Luckily amazons returns policy was superb and refunded me 2 months after purchase.
