Dell XPS 15 9570 i7-8750H 32GB 1TB SSD GTX 1050ti 4K UHD $2299 Delivered @ Dell eBay

700
PSLEIGH

Thought I'd post another laptop deal I saw on eBay. A deal for the previous model of the XPS 15 but this is the highest spec version of the 9570 I am pretty sure. RRP $4299, and currently on sale for $3224 on Dell website.

https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/dell-laptops/xps-15-laptop/s...

Its overkill for my needs, and probably overkill for most people's needs but might appeal to some. And its almost the same price as the newer 7590 base model with FHD, i5 and 8GB RAM so why not?

    1050ti though… Seems over priced.

    I have one of these for development at work. I wouldn't recommend it as a gaming laptop.
    If you want a gaming laptop get something with a better GPU for the same price point.

    Got this as a work laptop, and too many issues with it.
    I have a bluetooth mouse and bluetooth earbuds connected to the laptop at the same time and there are connection issues. Either mouse drops or the sound quality on the earbuds is bad. when I connect one, then no issues.

    The charger on the model I have is the normal pin style. Keeps getting spat out and battery doesnt charge.

    The thermals are good to the touch, but when you push the hardware, although it is cool to the touch, it starts to throttle. It's not that they have solved thermal issues, it is more like they are hiding it from the users touch.

    Then again this could just be my one, but I have owned a few Dell machines over the years and the problems with quality is always there.

      I've had similar issues with wifi and bluetooth with my 9560,same specs.

      It was all fixed when I upgraded my wireless module with this:
      https://www.pccasegear.com/products/45362/intel-dual-band-wi...

      It's very easy if you're a little tech savvy. But it's no excuse for a $3k laptop (when I purchase it) to have such poor wifi and bluetooth performance.

      Wish they would move to usb-c charging as well already.

    •  

      I had similar issues but it was my Wifi wouldn't work with Bluetooth connected and vice versa. Same symptoms of bad audio quality before dropping.

      It was the antenna.

      We get throttling under load with our 9560 and 9570 when running spreadsheet calculations

      Also, if you don't have the correct drivers installed, blue screens every 5 minutes - we found this the hard way after doing fresh installs of Win10

      Also, inability to wake from sleep - having to do a hard reset

      Also, waking from sleep after 3 seconds or overnight, sometimes even when in a laptop bag causing it to overheat

      Also, hibernating when sleeping - and waking it up doesn't re-open all apps like it should

      Most of those are related to S3 sleep or modern standby, by will not be buying them for work in the next IT update even though they have really good build quality and battery life (97whr model)

    Great laptop for development use - programming, rendering etc but if you want a pure gaming machine go for higher spec GPU and 1080P screen

  •  

    Is it just me or does anyone else hate the already installed equalizer on dell that is such a pain to take off? Threw me off when I first put my headphones into my xps 13

    Pretty sure there's a 9th generation tho

    • +1 vote

      Yeah, the current gen is the 7590 (I believe) so this is a bit old now and probably not worth the price. This is the generation where they moved the nose-cam to the top of the screen as well.

    • +1 vote

      Indeed there is but it's also a huge price difference for mostly the same thing in my opinion.

  •  

    Excellent build quality and class leading display colour accuracy. Shame about the fairly weak graphics card.

    Ah, yes, the $2299 thermal throttling testing device.

    i have this as my work laptop , like the others above have had multiple issues with it.
    Random blue screen , not turning on was about the send it for repairs and it started working again.
    Can get very warm.

    I would stay away. Never would personally buy a Dell laptop after this one.

    • +3 votes

      I found that if you don't switch the machine off properly [close the lid only], it tends to freeze and you can't turn it back on. You have to press the power button many times to make it alive again. It seems like a bug, but I switch it off every time now.

      •  

        Oh my goodness me too! I had so many issues with that (black screen of death). It seemed the laptop would be confused if it's still asleep or not. Be wary though, I did what you did where I always switch it off but I still got the black screen of death once more and I decided it was time to switch.

        •  

          Don't close lid if you plugin. I have to unplug before close lid otherwise it never go to sleep properly

      What brand would you reccomend? It’s like whatever brand I read about they all have annoying problems

  • +1 vote

    Don't buy this laptop, for the price point they're selling I'd expect an almost perfect laptop but this is far from it. Have a 9560 with an i7. Even running chrome with 1-2 tabs causes the fans to run, coil whine, screen flickers, speaker issues etc.

  •  

    i picked up a asus rog strix 17" i7-8750H RTX2070 144hz 1tbssd for $1700 in a recent sale.
    in comparison these recent posts are pretty weak

  •  

    I bought a model with this chassis a while back. Cracked in multiple places, including the hinge. IMO not worth it for the specs.

  •  

    I highly recommend the XPS models, although, I would go with the i5 (gen 8 processor though) version, which is a steal for $1500 ($1300 with TRS) .

    I bought the i5 model around a year ago for home use and some teleworking and I simply love it. It is light enough to be carried around, but also powerful to do some coding and remote desktop work. I only had 1 issue with the speakers' driver, which eventually got resolved shortly after the first update.

    All of these people who are commenting on issues they've experienced with their XPSs, I'm curious.. As someone who is/was looking into buying an XPS in the near future, would you have any alternative recommendations?

    • +1 vote

      I had so many issues with mine (black screen of death). Sometimes upon sleeping the laptop would get "confused", and if I switched it back on the laptop would be on but the screen would be black. Happened many times and would randomly just work again a few hours later. I have ended up switching to a Surface laptop 2 and I've really enjoyed it! There's a deal (15%) off right now for the brand new ones that just came out (Surface Laptop 3), or you could wait a month or two for potentially big discounts on the surface laptop 2.

    •  

      Yeah there are lots of alternatives.
      What will you be planning on doing with the machine? Is it work/gaming/rendering/browsing etc. Each one though comes with its own set of issues, but albeit not as bad as Dell. examples are the Carbon X1 (Also has cooling issues), the Surface Book 2, ASUS ROG line has a few decent laptops as well.

      • +1 vote

        Interesting..
        I guess I'm mostly wanting something that's super compact and lightweight, fast, and has a really good battery life.

        •  

          Yeah, your Surface book 2 is something that fits that bill. It will be slightly more costly though as Microsoft will try and sell at a premium to the same market that is targeted by the Macbooks.
          Carbon X1 is another decent alternative. Has a fantastic Keyboard. Probably one of the best on any laptop. The Asus Rog G531 is another very powerful very thin and powerful machine and has amazing thermal design if you can get used to the keyboard layout.

      •  

        What about a slim lightweight 15" with a dedicated gpu with at least 16gb ram?

      •  

        What do you think of this one?

        https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/495170

        I bought last night before this sale happened and now I'm not sure I made the right choice cause it seems like this one is a great deal.

        A lot of criticisms for Dell here though.

        •  

          That one is 14"

          •  

            @leiiv: Yes. Which I think is a better size for my preference to be honest. Still, this is an awesome deal for the specs.

            The s740 is a good deal too and is a lot cheaper but you get a lot of stuff with this one.

        •  

          Great deal. The graphic card is much weaker than what you have here though but definitely not worth the extra you will pay in price.

    Coil Whine in the XPS 15's?

  • +4 votes

    For a contrary opinion,

    I've had an XPS 15 for 3 years now (same design) and have loved it.

    It has a few niggles but it is about as no compromise as I could hope for.
    1. PWMs overheat if you don't put it on a fan dock at 100% load for extended durations (15m+). This causes thermal throttling.
    2. My Bluetooth antenna needed to be replaced last year but that was easy enough and they just sent me the part at my request.

    Other than that it has been amazing.
    1. Great form factor
    2. Great battery
    3. Great power
    4. Easy docking (I use a Dell thunderbolt dock)
    5. Great screen
    6. Great customer support

      That bluetooth issue is across all the units. They present issues very soon after purchase. For a $3k laptop that is very poor.

      •  

        Mine happened after 1.5 years and just needed an antenna replacement. So maybe not?

        •  

          May be/May be not. The complaint i keep hearing is that the antenna is the first thing is breaks with these machines. I gues syou were lucky enough that it happened after 1.5 years.

    •  

      i also luv m XPS 15, had it for 6 yrs now and its going strong. this is a BUSINESS grade laptop, not a gaming laptop. if u buy for the latter, u need ur head examined.

      great laptop by DELL.

    I recently bought an XPS 15 9570, slightly lower spec and absolutely love it. Only issue I've had is I find the speakers to be really poor. I think I might have had the issue with the standby mode draining battery but that seems to have disappeared. Everything else is fantastic, especially the screen and build quality. But I'm not a serious gamer - I just want speed, style, battery, and reliability.

    No bluetooth issues, not coil sounds, no overheating.

    Anyway my point is that I read about all these problems on OzBargain, decided to take the plunge anyway and couldn't be happier about it. Build quality is probably my favourite aspect. Feels so solid.

    Also, this price is an absolute steal - just look at previous posts.

  •  

    My xps 15 has been great, its was bought new. Previously I had a refurbished one from dell outlet which was rubbish. Returned it.

  •  

    Is this one good enough for video editing?

  •  

    Awful lot of money for a laptop that can't run Red Dead Redemption 2 (you need a 1660 Ti to get a decent framerate).

  •  

    We have this and the gen 7th ones at work. The gen 7th with the i7 7700hq is very stable no issue at all. The i7 gen 8th 6 cores machines are plagued with thermal issue (though it could be the corporate image has wrong driver). I don't know if the newer driver from dell would fix the issue. But it is a nice machine.

  •  

    I have had this computer since launch last year, it looks great and the screen is nice however i would not recommend it. Its very crash prone using software such as microsoft word! and there are ongoing issues with DPC latency (google it)
    Lenovo x1 carbon i7 with matching secondary portable screen and upgradeable ram and SSD is my prefered laptop solution

  •  

    xps is an expensive toy. 1 year warranty standard.

    if you have this much money to spend, and need serious power, there are more reliable options at this price.
