Original Coupon Deal
This is the cheapest price that i have seen for a core i7 and 16 GB RAM. Good reviews.
What else compares to this - i7, 16GB, dedicated graphics $1.2k??
This is cheaper with i7 and 16gb ram
That doesn't compare. The GPU in that HP, the GeForce MX 250, is just a rebadged GT 1030, which is barely a notch above an IGP i.e. worthless for serious gaming.
The GTX 1650 (Laptop GPU) in this Dell is around 3 times as powerful as an MX 250 and can actually handle Triple-A games at 1920x1080 quite well.
Granted the HP has a bigger SSD but the storage in both of these laptops is easily ugpradable, whereas the GPUs are not.
Yeah that is fair enough . I was just responding to OP's description saying it's the cheapest he's seen for core i7 and 16gb ram
Dell > HP for support
15% off goes down to $1359 GTX1660Ti and 512gb
That's probably the most cost effective deal atm for the specs
That's a great deal. Post worthy.
Looks good on paper but the ryzen 7 is seriously underpowered for 1660ti.
Get this for 100 more and you'll be set for 3-5 years+
METABOX ALPHA-X $1429 +29 for 120hz
15.6", GTX1660Ti 6GB, i7-9750H 6 Core, 256GB PCIe, 16GB RAM, Optional W10
Diy windows and your laughing
thanks for the heads up i was looking at the dell 1650 but for extra 200 or so for 1660ti was worth it.. ordered awaited delivery next week hehe
I was viewing this before
Nice specs, but the g3's have a reputation for having inadequate power supply and being heat limited. That graphics is going draw way more than the 130w adaptor can provide so you'll probably run out of juice a few hours into your game.

Looking for laptop for work colleague: 15.6", 1080p resolution, Windows 10 (Pro preferred), Intel or AMD, 8Gb+ RAM, 256Gb+ SSD, integrated GPU is fine (not used for gaming)… Would prefer to let them buy from somewhere they can easily contact if any future issues. … Suggestions?
… So preferably a bit cheaper due to integrated GPU only?
[edit: now I'm looking at all laptop posts on OzBargain… silly me]
Lenovo ThinkPad E595 seems like Ideal laptop in my opinion. It often goes on sale, just depends if you’re willing to wait for the next sale to come on.
I got a Dell Vostro with those specs for around $ 1000 when Dell had a sale in december. Slim bezels, full aluminium case, thunderbolt and more
I got a Asus tuf entry level. Works well, was $840 has those specs and a 1050.
Grab a cheap refurb Lattitude Dell Outlet, they come with 3 year NBD onsite warranty now.. Wait for a sale though!
Is it worth saving $250 to get the lower G3 model?
Difference is i5 9300H and only 8GB RAM
For gaming, yes. Save the $250. You can always upgrade the RAM later for ~$60.
For work and production, arguably no. 9750H has 6 cores and a far higher passmark score.
EDIT: Nice random neg. Whoever the random is, care to give a rebuttal?
Can Dell upgrade RAM if I ask them to or do I have to do it from somewhere else.
Not exactly certain on this model but most gaming laptops make it very easy to upgrade RAM so with a quick YouTube video you could likely do it yourself
@Simster275: Piece of cake to do yourself. RAM is cheap on Amazon US right now.
@zeggie: Link please
Is the lid metal like in XPS range? Looks metal in the photo. Thanks
No all plastic.
I believe only the G7 has a metal lid
Does anyone know exactly how heavy is it? Dell's website says it start at 2.34kg but can someone with this laptop comment on its actual weight?
I recently bought this but returned it and the box is 3.54kg including everything.
Laptop alone from memory was 2.4kg. The battery life is very average.
Can I ask why you returned it?
Im thinking of buying this laptop and as you have had experience can you please share?
Poor battery life and on the heavier side. Specs wise its fairly good, but can barely get through a day of work with screen brightness on high.
Edit: and the screen is meh
@NeuroRaptor: There's an awesome review here https://www.notebookcheck.net/Dell-G3-15-3590-Laptop-Review-... albeit the i5 model but it goes into great detail with a teardown, thermal imaging analysis, etc. Should answer a lot of questions.
From what I've found it's about 3kg with the power bank. The power bank from memory was around 450g. The laptop was ~2.5kg.
they run hot apparently
Red Hot bargain
I think 99.9% of laptops will do that at some stage? For this price I will take a chance :)
Good as a photo and video editing laptop, and to carry around in a backpack?
While colours are accurate, the screen is not very bright and generally a bit average. Not something I would personally want to be doing photo/video editing on. Otherwise the specs are excellent for this price.
It's a really good deal, can't wait for this to arrive. It's definitely great for photo and video editing, but according to this review, the screen is dull, so any design work would be better done using external monitor.
Is this good for video editing via Adobe Pro?
If you mean Premiere, yes it will do the trick for most users needs. I was successfully editing 360 5.6k video on a Lenovo with the same processer and a lower spec graphics card so this should perform slightly better (when plugged in).
Edit: I should have mentioned, I used the Lenovo to edit video whilst travelling. I certainly don't recommend anyone gets one of these to edit video full time. You are much better off getting a desktop - and it's far cheaper.
Hows the battery life and weight on this? Ik its not ‘ideal’ for school because its a gaming laptop, but this is a really good deal on a laptop of those specs.
About 3hrs of gaming…
How longs the battery life for non gaming (youtube, web surfing etc.)
Few Questions before I buy:
I received mine yesterday, so took less than 1 week. It came with a 512GB SSD. Very Happy.
That's awesome, did you get a tracking or sent notification at all?
Yes, received firstly a Dell tracking number via ebay message which only works on their portal. Then had access the Dell portal for updates and the StarTrack tracking number.
512GB SSD instead of the 256GB. Did you add this after, or it just had 512GB SSD?
It was listed in the specs on the Dell portal for the order as coming with it. I didn't upgrade, just ordered as is in the ebay listing.
