    GTX 960M trying to run 4K on 15"6 heh.. lets just hope you have a whole bunch of games that don't default to native!

    Other than that, awesome pricing as far as I can see. Thanks OP.

    I notice that some items at Dell Outlet list as "as new", others are "refurbished" without comments and other are "refurbished" with comments like "minor scuffing". Are the refurbished ones without comments in pristine condition but have been opened/repacked? Or have they likely been used for some time?

    •  

      I could be wrong as I honestly have no idea but my assumption is:
      as new: is repacked item, returned item, non boxed item or similar, maybe only switched on and returned?
      Refurbished: Something broke, was replaced and now it looks perfect
      Refurbished minor scuffing: Something broke, was replaced and works great but since it came from somewhere used, cover has scratches slash scuffing?

    Go for 1050 srsly

    Not related to this deal, but I just tried purchasing something and the chat person told me to email ANZ_DFO_CHANNEL@dell.com rather than deal with it themselves. I've bought a few things over the years and it has always been dealt with via the chat. Should I just try again for another person? Anyone had this happen recently? Seems like a slow way to deal with these sales when it is a first in first serve affair.

    •  

      I made a purchase from the outlet yesterday via chat after the email I sent the day before wasn't getting answered.

      The email response came through a few minutes after the chat finished saying the same item I just bought was now "out of stock"

      •  

        haha ok. thanks. I'll try again.

        •  

          Good luck with that.

          By the time you get a response + Quote + Sale, i m positive that the product will become obsolete!!!!

        •  

          @CouchCEO: How long does it take to get a quote from them? And what do they provide that differs from the stated price and list of features on the list of laptop 'bundles'?

        •  

          @BecOzImACheapskate:

          I haven't bought from the Outlet for a few years, but you usually have to contact them during business hours.

          Once in contact, they confirm your requirements and if there is stock, they issue a formal quote via email (usually within the hour). The Quote includes item details (as per outlet listing), quantities & prices, your details, and methods of payment (bank transfer, credit cards, etc). The quote is usually valid for a short period …if you don't pay within the period, they return the items to stock.

        •  

          @1bug: Thanks for letting me know. I got in contact with a sales rep who said they'd provide me with a quote yesterday, and I still haven't heard from them since they called me last night. They got to the asking for my details part. I'll try again, most likely with a different sales rep.

          Just to follow up this comment, when I tried again I got a different person via chat who did the usual thing and checked the stock themselves. I did note that when I went back to start chat again the page I got was slightly different even though I tried within business hours the first time. Potentially the chat people were running on australia daylight savings time still or something. I also got a response to my email from the same guy I was chatting to while I was chatting to him. So I ended up stealing one of the 3 available from myself… Took a bit of explaining to say they were both me because I used a different email address for the chat the second time. Anyway, worked out in the end. Got what I wanted.

    Be wary of coil whine issues on the XPS lineup. I'm in the process of returning an XPS13 due to coil whine and various other problems that started after the first attempt by a tech to resolve the coil whine.

    For anyone interested in the Dell Outlet's order process, below is my recent experience…

    • Use "Chat Now" to start a session with Sales.
    • List the product and Bundle# you're interested in, and ask any questions.
    • Dell will confirm whether stock is available.
    • If you want to proceed, Dell will ask for your Name, Contact number, Shipping and Billing address details.
    • Dell will then email a Quote (Proforma Invoice) which is valid for 2 days and lists payment options (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Direct Deposit or BPAY).
    • To place an order, reply to the Quote email.
    • If paying by credit card, an SSL encrypted payment pop-up is initiated in the chat session where you enter CC details.
    • Dell will then email an Order Acknowledgement, followed by an Order Confirmation (with estimated delivery date).

    If you're ready to order and want to pay by credit card, the whole process can be handled in the same Chat session. Otherwise, I assume you have 2 days to place an order and confirm payment.

    Note: It's best to chat during business hours so your enquiry/order can be processed in a timely manner. If chatting after hours, they will probably ask for your contact details, or ask you to email the Outlet staff directly (for follow-up).

    Does Cashback work with the chat purchases?

    •  

      No, because it's a manual sale processed by a sales person.

      •  

        Yeah okay sweet, thats what i figured, the post just had the Cashback button on the right and I was confused

        •  

          That's generated automatically by the system because the Dell online store (which uses the same domain) is eligible for cashback/s (eg. 4% from Cashrewards).

    Dell seem to use StarTrack for delivery (at least in Sydney).

    If anybody has ordered and wants to track delivery:

    • go to https://startrack.com.au/
    • click on [Track & Trace]
    • select "Reference" type
    • enter the Dell Order No (from Dell Order Confirmation) in the next field
    • confirm you're not a robot and click on [Track Now]

    Any thoughts on this model vs the Kaby Lake update? For non-gaming it would seem to be pretty good value?

    •  

      Here's a comparison of US spec models…
      https://www.windowscentral.com/dell-xps-15-9550-vs-xps-15-95...

      Apart from incremental improvements in CPU (i7-7700HQ), RAM speed (2400MHz), and battery capacity (97WHr vs 84WHr), the big change comes with the GPU (GTX 1050). The changes will definitely benefit gamers and those needing high-end graphics performance.

      I've ordered the $1,769 model for a family member (non-gamer) and consider that great value compared to the going rate for the equivalent Kaby Lake model (on sale for $2,549).

        Excellent thanks. Yes I agree, it represents great value, and got one for my mum.
