    Is this a breathtaking deal?

    • for NZ… yes.. rest of world no.

    • Depends on your needs really, looking on a platform like pricespy 16GB, 512GB the cheapest is ~$1600. At that price you are better off looking for dedicated graphics options on special(ie 4GB 1650ti).

      That being said if you are looking at buying a $800-1000 laptop then this is a great buy with a 1080p screen, large ssd(plus secondary ssd slot) and alot of memory.

      • I disagree that it is a good laptop at the price point. The processor, RAM and SSD are nice but with the Intel's on chip graphics are a disaster. It's like having buying three racing tyres for your car, and driving of the metal rim for the fourth wheel.

        I agree about the $1600 price point - 1650ti graphics, etc.

    • Well played /slow claps/

    • Hard to answer. My opinion is that the machine (and deal) is not a great deal for the average budget user.

      The machine has good/great specs for RAM memory, hard drive and processor - for it's price point. However, it has really poor graphics capabilities. Therefore, it's only great option for a very select few user types.

      Average budget users should probably get either a AMD 4500U chip laptop or an Intel laptop with an extra graphics chip (MX330/350 is fine). As long as you are fine with 8GB RAM (most average users will be) then you can find what you need at the same price point.

      Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals next week…

      • Actually, the coupon also works on the 4500U, 8GB RAM version of the laptop. $1115.05. So if you want to buy a Dell today at this price point, that would probably be my choice…

      • Can we expect decent deals for Black Friday?

        I am looking to purchase a laptop, and going by the reviews I'll settle for Ryzen 5. I had my eyes on Asus Zenbook 14, but could not find it in the colour I wanted.

        • I really like the superlight Zenbook, and would definitely want the metallic one. :)

          No idea about Black Friday deals in 2020. It's a crazy year and Kiwi retailers seem to think we all have extra cash in our pockets. Stock is also a factor, and considering the port of Auckland delays, I'm not too optimistic.

          My Black Friday comment was directed at the Intel 1065G7 with no graphics, there will definitely be better deals than that (unless all you use your laptop for is making massive spreadsheets). However, the 4500U Dell is a good deal. Unfortunately, I don't know the quality screen - so it's difficult to be too excited about it.

  • When you see a laptop with intel chips, you can expect fan noise and overheat…

  • A big warning with Dell. I ordered a monitor 6 Oct, was meant to ship 6 days ago (which was already a crappy delay), but just got an email saying its delayed until 28 Jan. That will mean 4 bloody months wait (if I can even trust that date)

    The same looks like it's going to happen with a second different monitor I ordered around the same time too.

    Internet is full of the same type of stories.

    Yes there are delays because of covid, but that kind of wait is ridiculous. I'm wondering if they are bumping Joe Blog orders in order to higher priortise their business customers.

  • $1217.99 when I go to deal… Am I missing something?

  • I just got a new laptop a week ago around $1100.

    Might be comparable. The battery is great.

    • same here, I was thinking about Dell, after comparing the price and specs had decided to get a Lenovo.

      • my only issue is the low nit screens on most of the cheap skus

        • I think the Dell in this deal is 220 nits. (https://www.dell.com/si/p/inspiron-15-5505-laptop/pd). The Lenovo is 250 nits - so the screen is probably a little better. Would like at least 300 nits personally.

          I personally wouldn't buy either. The Intel chip without a secondary graphics chip is terrible for most home users. Unless you are ONLY running large business spreadsheets - I can't see why anyone should buy them.

          My recommendations for a budget general laptop: Intel with an MX330 chip or an AMD Ryzen 4500U. They are in the same $1000-1200 price point.

    • The Dell has twice the ram and their faster dimms. Also a better CPU and larger panel.. which Dell make some good panels.
