    what about custom import fee for this?

  •  

    I have this laptop but I want to upgrade the ram to 16GB. what ram will work?

    •  

      I have this exact laptop and am planning on upgrading once ram prices drop a bit.
      In theory any DDR4 SODIMM would work, but ideally you should be using ram with the same clock speed and latency, i.e. 2400MHz and 17-17-17-39
      Honestly ram latency would hardly make a difference, but make sure to have the right clock speed

    Nice. But this or the 8th gen Xiaomi Pro?

    Can any pro puta users share their opinion?

    • +1 vote

      You can't play games on the xiaomi pro, that has a mx150 which is terrible compared to a 1060 6gb. You'l probably get better build quality on the xiaomi, however the sacrifice is that you won't be able to games, that's a guarantee. It's whatever your needs are, productivity or gaming. Also batteries on gaming laptops don't tend to be the best either.

      •  

        What about non-game wise? The Xiaomi Pro would be a no-brainer right, since 8th trumps 7th gen big time (both quad-core).

        • +1 vote

          The Dell is gaming focused, you get a gtx1060 6gb in sacrifice of a thicker chassis, and probably poorer build quality for the sake of an affordable price point. I can't comment on the xiaomi however if you are just doing ordinary tasks besides gaming, it should have plenty power. However i've read about it and have noticed it comes installed with chinese windows, so you might want to look into that. I personally own a gaming desktop and a macbook pro. The macbook pro being a very good laptop as i only use it for its intended purpose, productivity in conjunction its build and weight being phenomenal.

          So pick a laptop based on your usage, if i was personally buying a new laptop, i'd go with an 8th gen xps 13 (if you are just doing productivity work). Not so sure about xiaomi reliability and warranty and such. If you want to game too and will only have a single device, consider the dell and forget about the xiaomi.

          Personally i'd get myself a desktop pc, like the https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/360362 or built yourself and a high quality laptop like the xps 13. But i don't know about your budget and your circumstances. Hope this helps. Continue to ask questions if need be.

          If you're not doing any gaming at all you shouldn't be looking at this Dell at all because a big chunk of the price is for the graphics card. The Xiaomi is much more portable and their all metal build is much better as well. I own the Dell and the only real reason for buying it is for its graphic card performance with the weight and size of the machine, it's not extremely cumbersome but another ultrabook type laptop would be most suitable.

          @steven231: With the current prices of desktop parts, I'd hold off on building a desktop for the meanwhile.

      Yes,I just received my inspiron 7557 today(From Last time eBay 20% deal) and added my old 1TB hdd in this laptop

      Yep, there's an additional 2.5" bay (supports 7mm thick drives). Installation is easy peasy, and they include the mounting bracket, cables and screws. I chucked a 2TB segate barracuda in mine

  •  

    Is this the one that with the shocking poor screen?

    • +1 vote

      They're using IPS panels for this model. Not the best IPS panel in the world but still better than the old TN panels.

    • +1 vote

      It's got the IPS screen so it's not the one you see people heavily dissaprove of in reviews.

      It's ok. Not great. If you plan on doing photo editing/video editing work steer clear. Other than that it's ok.

      Has huge bezels.

      •  

        It works fine for video editing work imo.

        •  

          Depends on your standards ^.^

          For me this screen is garbage. Main screen on my desktop is a 27" 1440p ISP screen with 100% Adobe rgb. Putting them side by side the difference is night and day.

          Yes, for any web based editing - YouTube, twitch - this will be ok. However if you're getting paid for any work, have some dignity and use an external monitor or buy a different laptop.

    •  

      No, that was the last year's model. The 7567 had a bad TN panel but this one is the 7577 and they all have IPS panels.

    I bought this during the ebay 20% off deal with a 1050TI for around $1200, same specs otherwise, im happy with the build quality, battery and it plays overwatch on around 60/70 frames on high which im happy with. I'm using it for a programming course

  •  

    How's the screen quality on these? Same as the previous IPS model?

  • +7 votes

    I ordered this exact same model in January and paid the exact same price. Postage said 2-3 weeks but it only took 11 days. Been using it for 2 weeks now for gaming, work and general use.

    Review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlHml4BU270&t=314s

    My thoughts -

    -Good solid build quality, better than I expected. Isn't too heavy and looks good.
    -SSD is nice and snappy. I purchased a 1TB HDD and installation was easy.
    -Windows 10 is working fine, much better than when I last used it on a laptop. Not too much bloatware comes with it from Dell.
    -GPU is great. Handles all games I've thrown at it fine. The video above has some FPS tests.
    -Keyboard is OK. Full size numpad is nice to have. Key travel is very shallow but it's overall ok. I lose about 5 wpm compared to typing on a proper mechanical keyboard so overall quite good.
    -Track pad is ok. Haven't had any issues with it so far.
    -It's very quiet. Much quieter than I expected.
    -Battery life is extremely impressive. I was using it at work the other day in meetings - just doing stuff in spreadsheets and word, going through some PDFs and did a 2 hour presentation outputting HDMI to a projector. No back lit keyboard, screen on like 40% brightness. After 5 hours the battery was at 50%.
    -One more USB port would be nice. I find myself using all 3 often. Will end up getting a USB hub.
    -The screen is ok but it drops down to looking very ordinary at low brightness settings. Ideally use the laptop plugged into a power point as much as possible (duh) and have it on full brightness.

    Overall i'm very, very impressed with the laptop and would recommend it. It's probably the best bang for buck gaming laptop around at the moment.

    •  

      Thanks mate

    •  

      How's movie and video viewing on this? I currently have the previous generation version with the terrible TN display, and it's driving me to return it it's that bad, so bad Dell even knew and now the IPS display is standard. But even then I heard that the display isn't that impressive, would like to hear more thoughts on that.

      •  

        It's ok but nothing special. Depends on your needs but if you need it for gaming I'm not sure if there is much better for this price point. I haven't calibrated my monitor yet so that will give some improvements.

    •  

      Hard drive install was easy. But it didn't pick the drive up in Windows for me because it was set to RAID0. I managed to fix it and it picked up however I noticed the laptop now takes like 70-80 seconds to boot. What have I done wrong?!

    Got this last November. Great unit so far, for below 1.5k. Been lugging it around Australia for work so its been pretty rugged - been in and out of my backpack at the airport security checks many times now. Hoping to play some games with it but have been busy so cant comment of gaming performance.

    I got rid of the provided internet security and installed one I had full license to. Installed new 500GB SSD and uninstalled that smartbyte inbuilt software. Hoping to install additional set of RAM.. just for fun.

    Access to internals of laptop was quite easy. Just take care when prying it out, those plastic tabs can warp abit.

    I was using a 14" before this so I found this one quite heavy. The charger for this one is also, bulky - I suppose you'll need one for the additional power.
    Another thing I noticed when it was plugged to an external projector/monitor while doing our video presentations was that once in a while you hear the laptop fan kick in. Its not like a jet engine but just enough to notice it.

    A lot of people have issues with stuttering when performing simple tasks in windows with this laptop. I personally had this with the 1050ti model I bought. There is a problem with Nvidia Optimus on dual GPU laptops atm.

    Here is a link documenting the issue:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10...

    Here is a workaround until intel fixes the issue (which they said they should have fixed by March/April if everything goes well):
    https://github.com/jobeid/TrayPwrD3

    Just posting here to save people some headache if they do encounter the problem. :)

    •  

      As a side note, the HDMI output on the laptop links directly to the dGPU, meaning the iGPU is essentially disabled if you have a monitor plugged in. This makes the dGPU handle everything, meaning there's no stutter normally experienced when the iGPU hands over tasks to the dGPU.

      The laptop's screen is run through the iGPU, so there will be occasional stutters if you try to mirror or extend the displays.

    Can anyone recommend the best laptop for under 2k? For gaming purposes. I'm more interested in reliability and performance than any thing else.

    •  

      This with more RAM and a second SSD.

      • +1 vote

        can't agree with you, this laptop is max-q which compromises performance at 5-10% compared to normal mobile gtx1060s (notebookcheck), if only for gaming purposes, I would go with a full 1060 not Max-Q. 8 g is enough when running games without any background applications open(see linux tech tips https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnuNs_Nu46Q).Under 2000 wanting to maximize performance I would 100% wait for newer cpus see notebookcheck "Raw performance benefits over the Skylake i5-6300HQ are minimal at best while the more powerful quad-core i7-7700HQ will be anywhere from 25 to 45 percent faster depending on the operation according to CineBench benchmarks. The newer Ryzen 7 1700 and i7-8550U are also significantly faster than the i7-7300HQ in multi-core and single-core operations, respectively. In other words, this particular Core i5 CPU is beginning to show its age now that the next generation of processors from Intel and AMD are emerging."

    •  

      it is more likely than not that you can find a gtx1070 laptop given the price, over a year ago i bought a gtx1070 asus gl502vs on sale for $2200. if you don't care about weight and battery life, then metabox and other clevo brands should be considered.

    •  

      Look up some cheap or cheapest GTX 1070 laptops on eBay and Ozbargain deals then hunt then on gumtree or eBay but I find gumtree better for those one off deals. You can hunt eBay too but imho it is harder and more full time work.. either either way your results may vary.

  •  

    I use the computer only for browsing internet and occasionally for word or watching a movie that I have downloaded. Any recommendations? I do understand this is more of a gaming PC.

    Thank you.

  •  

    Would like to warn everyone this is a gt1060 max-q not gtx1060, compromises 5-10% performance…just that everyone knows, no one has mentioned it.

  •  

    Which one has better value for money, this or the amd model from jbhifi for $1270? https://www.jbhifi.com.au/computers-tablets/laptops/dell-gam...

    I can get another 5% off that by buying the jbhifi gift card first.

    Is it easy to install additional Ram or adding an extra SSD in this laptop? Is it literally just buying the Ram then sticking into the machine?

    Additionally, if I were to buy the following laptop would it be possibile to purchase a seperate Gpu and installing it?
    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Dell-Inspiron-15-7000-8th-Gen-i7...

    Cheers guys!

    Just Wondering How long Postage took and to what state ? Living in SA and wanting to buy before going on a trip next month but worried about receiving on time.

    What about this guys: Dell Inspiron 15 7000 8th Gen i7-8550U 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD 8GB RAM, it only has a Geforce 940MX 4GB, but it is a 8th gen i7 and more importantly the price after 20% discount is $1,379 so it is directly comparable to the Xiaomi Pro i7, which also has i7-8550U has 16GB RAM with a MX150 GPU.

    So this is a good alternative for those who still want to game a bit but the laptop still has reasonably better battery life than the one with GTX 1060!?

    There's another listing from Dell with the same machine but with only a 512GB SSD with 16GB, but the price pre-discount is $2,224 so that's out the door.
