  • How many nits is the screen? cant seem to find it

    • It’s not shown anywhere on their website either: Note it’s the intel version on their website but other components should be similar.

      If they’re planning on hiding it from spec page I’m expecting a typical brightness of 250nits

    • +14

      Depends how bad your head lice infestation is.

    • +1

      See here:

      I wouldn't hold my breath to wish it'll give you the 300nits model.

    • +5

      According to the specs for the US model, its either 300 nits 72% NTSC (good) or 220 nits 45% NTSC (crap). I would expect the 220 nit variant, since they don't say which.

    • +4

      That's a real head scratcher.

    • +12

      I spoke to a dell representative on the chat who confirmed it is the 220 nits variant.

        • +13

          Or is it a… dellbreaker?

    • +13

      why do you need to nitpick?

  • +3

    8gb of ram seems "low"

      • +39

        How does OP look suspicious? Has just created a new account and made a flawless post, well done OP.

        • +8


    • +6

      I'd be more concerned about the APU using shared graphics memory and only having single channel memory mode (one stick of RAM). This would perform significantly better in games etc if it was even just switched to 2x4GB. Adding an extra 8GB stick would make this thing perform really well.

    • +4

      $840 is low.

    • +5

      Reasonable for $840?

  • +1

    am i going crazy or is there no details on these even on dell's site?

    • +2

      yeah, you cant find it by browsing dells ebay website by categories. I had to go through Op's link to find this page.

  • +12
    • +2

      Yeah, went with this one instead. And if you add that 1 year accidental cover as well total came to $1060… pretty damn good!

    • +2

      Ordered this one instead.

      • hey man good battery on that one?

    • Cancelled my order after reading about the screen / reviews… if it was the 300nit version might have kept it… :(

  • How did you get $830? showing $839 for me @ (80% off $1049).

    • sorry, changed price to $839.2 in the title

      • Good find anyway, bought one thanks.

  • +2

    Finally some good deals on Ryzen 4000.
    Looks like 512 GB is the new standard SSD.
    HDMI 1.4 is a ridiculous flaw for a laptop in 2020 though.

    • Thanks for pointing that out, HDMI 1.4 means you cannot get 4K at 60hz.

  • Wow, apparently the Ryzen 5 4500U is two times more powerful than the i7-4770MQ, of which was inside a laptop that I paid for over $3k 6 years ago. Just not sure how the graphics card holds up against a dedicated one.

    • +7

      and it adds six trillion times faster than the golden abacus Pharaoh Ku'kesh bought 3,000 years ago for five tonnes of grain

      • 5 tons of wheat is about $1500 aus, so I would say that this is a good deal, cheaper than the ku'kesh and significantly better FPS in most games

  • can this charge with usb

    • Yep: USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C™ (DP/PowerDelivery)

      • just by google search i discovered usb 3.2 gen1 is just the good ol usb 3.0

    • Edit. Dupe comment

  • Does anyone have a good guide to the differences between 3000/5000/7000 in the Inspiron range?

    I.e. the major differences in build quality?

  • +1

    What's the battery wHr? And why does it have 180W PSU!?

    • Might be a mistake, 180w is for the new G5 SE

    • +1

      180w is insane for this business range laptop and I also noticed that it over 1.7kg which is a little bit heavy.

      • +1

        I got this reply below from Dell AU…To confirm, this laptop model comes with an IPS display panel with a brightness of 220 nits. Hope this info helps.

  • A little to big for my son who is looking for something in a 14 inch screen size. Anything good / recommended under $800 in 14 inch.?

  • +1

    I could not find the battery life on this laptop. anyone got any idea ?

  • is the ram upgradeable or soldered? any link

  • Worth getting this over the Lenovo Ideapads with Ryzen 4000 series processors? The wait time is horrendous

    • Is this the same model as the "Dell G5 15 Special Edition" that shows up when googling Dell New Inspiron 15 5505? Looking for reviews but can't find any (AU specific preferred)

      • They aren't the same. The Inspiron 5505 seems very new, there aren't any product page up yet on Dell for sales, but its support page is up.

        • Cheers mate. Not a single hit for "Dell Inspiron 15 5505" on youtube or google from a quick skim, crazy

          • @Gazpacho: Because the ryzen 4000 series chips just came out. This is a great deal.

    • +4

      Lenovo Ideapad Slims have Wifi 6 and at least a 300nit IPS screen whereas this one has a TN panel

      I had a love hate relationship with my 2013 Macbook Air with a TN panel. It was too dim for casual use and had to live like Batman for the screen to be eligible.

      • +1

        Is Wifi 6 vs Wifi 5 noticeable in everyday usage?

        P.s. please send my regards to Alfred

        • Unless all your devices are running Wifi 6 chips inside, yes.

          People say it's not noticeable and it'll take years before you can take advantage of it.

          Quite frankly if everyone buys new Wifi 5 devices we'll never get there, so its good to prepare for the future now rather than later.

      • can you explain the differences between IPS and TN, in terms of real life usage. I am tossing up between both and I am having a hard time deciding. Is the TN panel actually that bad?

        • +1

          TN panels have terrible viewing angles. However, if you're at a dim coffee shop and don't want other people glancing at your work, this should be fine.

          I wouldn't recommend it for business use if your work requires you to share your screen to someone on the side.

    • For what it's worth, we ordered an Ideapad Slim 5 15" three days ago and just got notification it has shipped from Shanghai. Due in Perth July 10th, via Sydney. Bit annoyed we didn't get offered the 100% SRGB screen and 70Wh battery options they have in Germany but all part of the Australia Tax, I guess.

  • +2

    While the spec seems great, but considering the height/thickness of the device, and it's the budget line of Dell, thermal solution for this Inspiron is more than likely to be very underwhelming and likely throttle heavier workloads. It's not too bad, but just have realistic expectations.

    Found the service manual of the US model, should be fairly universal:

    There are two 2280 M.2 NVMe slots, no 2.5" SATA slot.

    Only 1 heat pipe, that's very disappointing (worse than Acer Swift?ok just checked, the Acer Swift also only have one heatpipe):

    • Cheers for the insight - would you say that it would therefore underperform compared to similar spec laptops with better cooling? What about in everyday workloads?

      • It'll be fine for general/everyday workloads as long as they don't require prolonged performance (e.g. video editing, rendering, heavy gaming etc).

        At the moment, we don't know what material is the bottom chassis of the Inspiron 5505. It likely is plastic, but if it is metal and if you don't mind the chassis being used as a heat sink and be a bit warm, you can mod with adding thermal pad to the heatpipe and connect with the chassis. Similar to how it's done here to a Acer Swift 3 with a Ryzen 7 4700U ( the review is in Chinese, but the video is quite self explanatory).

        The thermal solution looks very similar to an Acer Swift 3, while the Swift does throttles over time, but it's still sufficient for everyday use. I'd expect the Inspiron to be similar.

  • Is the ryzen 7 4500U and Radeon onboard graphics on this thing capable for video editing?

    • The 4500U is a 6 core CPU and video editing would be no issue. You could go for the 4700u
      if you need more power. The 4500u is faster than some 10th gen i7.

      • My concern is do they need a decent gpu card for video editing? And this is the TN panel right? 😅thank you

        • +1

          Depends on whether the video editing software relies more on CPU or GPU. If you rely on GPU rendering for your videos, I think you'd already have some idea what machines you'll be looking at. Otherwise, the Ryzen 4000 U series are fine for casual rendering.

          However, yes you've brought up a good point, the type of panel technology isn't as important as the colour gamut the display has. As confirmed above, it is a 45% NTSC gamut panel, which is very undesirable (to say the least) for any type of graphics work.`

  • Bah I tried to wait for ryzen 4000 but my old laptop died in march and had to get the Inspiron 15 7591 intel black version… Ohh well…

    • Oh no i just ordered the 7591 last night, it has the UHD screen, for $1738 through dell ebay, down from $3498rrp, is it worth cancelling and getting the G5 or amd4700 instead?

  • I am look for desktop, is the xps 8930 with GPU 1660ti a good deal considering the discount in eBay?

  • +4

    The 8gb ram looks like it’s 1 stick of 8gb ram not 2x4gb ram. This is fine if you upgrade to 2x 8gb sticks.

    But I’m pretty sure the advertised 3200mhz ram is only at that speed if it’s dual channel. Thus, the ram will work only at half this speed. This is important if you play a lot of games as the games will run slower in single channel ram with ryzen Vega graphics.

    So if you buy this I highly recommend finding another stick of 8gb SODIMM ram and running this in dual channel.

    Also it’s a shame they don’t have the 4800U option and only the 4700U. 4800U has 8c/16t and better Vega graphics. Also I’d take the 4700U option over the 4500U for the price difference.

    • Thanks mate that's super helpful - any recommendation for a good stick?

      Also, does opening the laptop void your warranty?

    • nice post - is the 4800U with better Vega graphics going to be available in Aus with a 300 nits 72% NTSC screen?

  • Should i get this over the Lenovo Ideapad 5? On the order page it says my ideapad is expected to ship on July 10, 2020 but i dont hold much hope that it wont blow out

    • +1

      An ozbargainer just confirmed the screen on the Dell has 220nits brightness which is well below average.

      I vote for the Lenovo

      • Okay i think i will stick with the lenovo thanks for your input!

  • Noting that the delivery times is 11-17 days standard/registered.

  • Does this laptop support two external FHD monitors, one HDMI, one USB Display port?

  • +8

    220 nits brightness with TN display kills it.

    • Someone in above posts mentioned it being IPS panel.

  • Be great if they made this in a 14" form factor for the same money.

  • Great CPU but is the TN screen a definite dealbreaker? I've not used 220 nits before

    • +1

      Its fine. I currently have a 220 nits laptop and it works well for everything. Even in sunlight. Unless you like sharing your laptop from multiple angles then it might not be as clear.
