Dell Inspiron 15 7590 Win10 Home, Intel i5-9300H, 8GB DDR4, 512GB M.2 SSD, Nvidia GTX 1650, TB3, 1.59kg, $1310.05 - Delivered

EOFY@5EPPDISCOUNT

SMASHING great laptop on sale! I bought one myself!

Buyer beware - overheating issues - I had to disable turbo boost to prevent any kind of CPU throttling. Undervolting and CPU repasting reduces idling temp but does not prevent CPU throttling

Requires at least 65W USB-C PD power adapter to charge through the thunderbolt 3 port - my 65W Lenovo USB-C power adapter worked but the laptop will not charge using an Apple 87W USB-C power adapter

Specs wise it is comparable or better than XPS 15 in some case - it's like a poor man's XPS 15

    Yeah great price. Any overheating problems in such a small body.

    If anybody needs 15" touch screen version 2in1, good price here:

      Been looking at this for a while…so tempted.

      •  

        Yeah, same here. Bought one couple of years ago with i7-6500U chip.
        They are great units for everyday tasks - quick, convenient and quiet. Screen ok at home, noticeable glare in direct sun.
        Good price, normally around 1300 bucks.

        Cashrewards works but no EOFY@5EPPDISCOUNT on this laptop sadly.

          EOFY@5EPPDISCOUNT does work for a further discount of 5% ($68.94) bringing it down to $1310.06. I added it to my cart with the code and it came to 1310.06

      Awesome price!

      Question, if this has USB C PD, does this mean it can be charged via USB C?

      • +1 vote

        Yes, it does charge through USB-C power adapter - require at least 65W charger - but seems to be bit flicker - did not work with Apple USB-C 87w charger - did work with my other lenovo USB-C 65W charger though

          Hi Kousuke, have you had any issues with the fan noise on this laptop yourself? I just spoke to a DELL rep who said that these have been resolved with the latest firmware updates. He reckons they actually took the laptop off the market for 2 weeks for that reason. Not sure if this is true, though.

    •  

      Good call, someone (not me) should list this laptop onto Ozbargain.
      As a previous owner of a Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 I highly recommend this laptop.
      I rarely used the 2-in-1 part of the laptop, except when I was in a plane or car , I flipped it into tablet mode and it was great for watching videos.
      I like that it now has USB-C PD which allows you to use a phone charger (with a minimum 45 watt) to charge the laptop so you can leave your laptop charger at home.

    Use mollpatrol's coupon code (EOFY@5EPPDISCOUNT) for a further discount of 5% ($68.94) bringing it down to $1310.06.
    Try shopback's 3% offer on DELL too, but it may not work due to external coupon code.

    Id rather get the 17 inches one from yesterday with better gpu and 144hz screen only 400 more

  •  

    powerful specs but is the screen IPS?
    This is $400 more but a much better package unless you really need portability.

    This or the Lenovo L340 gaming laptop? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/462689

    Not sure about everyone else, but the fan noise and overheating issues were quite concerning to me with this machine. Found this 40min beauty YouTube which deals with the issue (channel has a few great videos on this laptop, actually), only just uploaded today. Seems the issue can be resolved with some tinkering.

    There's also this review of the laptop on reddit which I found helpful Reddit

    I am surprised to see overheating issues from seemingly sane design. under the hood there are 4 heat pipes and 2 fans, so I almost decided to sell my Dell workstation and buy this one instead, for lighter build and larger battery haha

    but I'll look at it this way: if Dell keeps this design, and 2 generations later there will be a mobile workstation based on this, without the overheating issues, I'll get one.

    but for now I'll stick to my Latitude 5591-based workstation, a design forged after several generations of business grade hardware. Normally I don't hear the fan, not when doing office duty, not when playing HL2 haha

      I think this issue it more to do with Gen 9 CPU - Intel trying to get more $$$ out of its 14nm process

      this problem goes away if you disable turbo boost - base clock of 2.4Ghz is plenty in my books

      •  

        I have i5-8300H in mine, single fan handling both GPU (equivalent of MX150) and CPU, and I run fine with turbo boost. So I hope Dell will fine-tune that BIOS and power management to get things right on your model, too! after all i5-9H is only tiny improvement over i5-8H performance wise. same architecture, same process, just a bit higher base and boost clock. having overheating with 2 fans is odd.

    Thanks OP got this laptop with Windows 10 Pro for work via the "Work" section of the Inspiron line up for $1,3367.05 using the EOFY@5EPPDISCOUNT code. Aware of the heating issues but the Youtube review seemed to give some good adjustment pointers to look over. Will more than likely upgrade the RAM and add and SSD dwn the track. I was seriously tempted to get the Lenovo L340 Gaming which had the extra 8GB RAM and 1TB HDD, but the Dell seemed more compact, lighter and had a sturdier magnesium alloy frame where the L340 was a coated plastic. Plus there was more feedback on the Dell than the Lenovo.

  •  

    Thanks OP, just ordered one.Hopefully I won't have any overheating issues, mainly going to use it for internet browsing and excel spreadsheets. Hope it lasts for the next 5 years as the acer its replacing.
