Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming 7700hq, 1050ti, 16GB Ram, 128GB Ssd and 1TB Hdd, IPS Display $1599 Including GST and Delivery


Was browsing for laptops for uni and came across this. Not sure if it's the cheapest price ever, but the original price for this was $1899 ($300 off).
A similar deal for a laptop was https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/329127, but personally i would prefer this for its battery and more vram (4gb vs 2gb).

    Keep in mind the new model's of these have just been released overseas and now come with a 1060 instead of a 1050Ti … Pricing looks like it will be about the same and Dell often run 15% off Inspiron.

    That being said, I just bought one of the 1050Ti like posted in this model and I am very happy with it… except it is a little bit weighty … but its a proper laptop and not an ultrabook :)


    What are you studying at Uni that would require an I7 cpu, 16Gb of RAM and a 1050 GPU?

      My gf lives interstate and its hard to lug my desktop with me :)
      Also, the battery life of this seems to outlast ultrabooks so i wouldnt mind the added weight for increased performance and battery life.


      Game dev or any other form of work that requires you to render stuff. 3D modeling, video editing, etc.

      Might be using it as their desktop too. Also cool to be able to play games on the commute or if you have long breaks between classes.


    Oh man bought a refurbished msi gs63vr instead of dell a week ago for the same price because of the 1060… And now dell release the 1060 too…


    I remember when any laptop under 4 grand was considered rubbish. How times have changed…

    I've got the i5 version, came with same gfx and 256gb ssd. First one was doa, came out and did mb swap, down arrow was loose, screen had shit bright spots. Back it went, new one seems much better. Heavy, but good battery. Mine was 1200 bucks or so. Bastards gave me a tax receipt 2days after eofy, it's full of dell bloatware as well. Still, seems. Decent for the money. Screen is ips, so nice viewing angles but really quite dull looking.

      try pumping the gamma/brightness up a little in the Intel & Nvidia display properties … it makes the screen a little bit nicer to look at :) (Even when the brightness is set to full via the keyboard, you can still turn it up higher via the display driver properties)


      The IPS is not the best, brightness a bit low and washout, but because the default IPS calibration profile for the LCD is not very good too, after calibration with a Spyder, it definitely looks better now. If you need my ICM please let me know.


        I'll take you up on that, just been googling icm… I found this link, which seems pretty clear https://pcmonitors.info/articles/using-icc-profiles-in-windo...

        So I'm guessing the icm is just a text file? I'll pm you my email address if that is OK?


          let me know how it looks like for your display. Because the calibration was done with my surrounding lighting, it might be a bit different when using in your environment. For me the colour is so much more natural and less washout.


    $1700 with 256SSD at JB currently (15% sale). Seems the same spec.
    Touching one right now, not a lightweight.

      I paid $1350 Delivered :)

      Mine is refurbished tho 256gb SSD and exact same spec, I'm very impressed with this laptop :)

      GTA V Runs perfect! I use this laptop for photo editing on the go, and mashing up GoPro Hero 5 Footage 4k the i7 and having the video card help heaps when it comes to editing large video files :)

      Replaced my Dell XPS 14 from 6 Years ago !

      It isn't that bad being 2.6kg .. I'd also like to mention that the models going on the dell website contain an IPS Panel mine has a TN Panel, which while alot of people have said is bad I don't find it that bad.. Plus for me I could install a different display panel if it really bugged me..


    Bought this a few weeks ago on a similar sale, epic laptop.. So epic I bought 2.

    2.6kg is not heavy, that's first world problems.


    Theres an extra 79$ for the 256gb SSD


    Just an extra option, imo better for those who don't want to fiddle around and have extra parts. You could also get the i5 version with student discount of 15% and use the expansion.
