  • Does it have Intel MMX technology?

  • Anyone can get the code to apply? It doesn't on mine.

    • Coupon works fine at checkout for me. Best to either checkout as a guest or hop onto eBay live chat to figure out why your account can't apply this coupon :)

    • Just bought in the morning, i was looking to buy one 4800H Laptop from last 2 weeks, and today this discount came up

  • Wooooow great.

  • thanks OP, finally pulled the trigger, at first thought missed out at 1700ish price, now even better :). most likely Dell made a mistake by applying 10% discount while eBay is running 20% off.

  • I'm about to pull the trigger but i am jobless now. Maybe I can spend my empty days gaming.

    Service Manual for those interesting in accessing the components and DIY upgrades:

    The lower spec with Ryzen 5 4600H is $1,295.27 after the code, which is a pretty good buy for those more limited on budget.

  • This is one hell of a bonkers price.

    It's just like the old 9th gen one, but a much, much better CPU, and a better GPU, and faster RAM…with the tradeoff of a slighly darker panel, and two less USB A-3.0 ports.

    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/548197

    • I still don't get why they reduce the number of the USB 3 ports on this year's G5 machine. It's baffling.

  • 10 sold in 1 hour, getting hot lol

  • To be clear those prices listed against the additional drive are the cashback not what you're spending. I wish I could get a fast name brand 2TB NVME drive for $79!

  • Sorry I am a PC noob - would these specs be good for games like iRacing and ACC?

    • Definitely good enough for iRacing,might be a bit weak for ACC though, but depends what settings you choose. With this one, you might need to play at medium settings for ACC

    • Always, always look for the thermals in any laptop. It gets worse over time and will just overheat no matter how good the initial performance is meant to be. I've learnt this lesson from previous Dell and HP machines which overheated despite having top specs for its time and I'd be using it like a crippled laptop because of the slow down.

  • how long does Dell take to deliver?

  • Can I return the one with 4600H and 60 Hz screen I bought last month for this? lol

  • How does the 5600M compare to the other laptop cards? It seems like it's on par with the 1660ti mobile. Am I correct to assume this?

    • Somewhere between 1660ti and 2060 as I asked about this on one of the previous deals.

      • From my limited research aren't they equal? AMD are a bit weaker in the mobile space.

        • There are a few variants of 2060 on laptop (different power limit) with the 2060 115W variant can be up to 5%+ faster than 90W, also each laptop has different thermal design which make it hard to compare. But yeah the 5600M performs pretty much on par with the others.

  • Dang this looks good.

  • Also the user reviews on the Dell website are not great:
    https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/dell-laptops/dell-g5-15-se-g...
    It seems people have issues with external monitor connections and stability problems.
    What does one do?

    • Checked elsewhere, it seems not much of an issue like there. might be some unfortunate ones.
      Thermal issues are also not that much as per the other reviews in Yourtube.

  • This seems like this has a Dell proprietary charger. Can the USB C port be used for charging?

    • I have Inspiron 7590 which also seems to have a special charger and it can charge through USB-C port.

      • Thanks! How many watts on your USB C charger?

        • I actually use the WD19 dock. I have the version with the 180w charger, which will supposedly charge 130w through usb-c which is the same as my Inspiron's regular charger (CPU 9750H, GPU GTX1650).

  • Can I cancel my previous Dell order from the same seller & buy this instead?

  • Which one has better screen - this or the intel version? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/548450#comment-8936224

    I have been looking for ryzen 4xxx with high srgb%, but havent found so far. Is that the unicorn i have been looking for?

    • The intel version has a brigher screen, and I think slighly higher color space coverage? AMD version however is $400 cheaper with a faster CPU and GPU. For a gaming laptop or drafting, the AMD is better. For content creators (where colour matters), the Intel is better.

      In an office environment, both parties should be using a good quality monitor, so the AMD+good monitor comes out still cheaper than the Intel.

      • Since when is the screen different? They're the same chassis and as far as I can tell the same screen

        • Oh bugger me you're right. I thought this one was 220nit, but it's not! It's the 300nit version too.

  • "So you can make use of the samsung promotion and add
    1TB MZ-V7S1T0BW - $42
    2TB MZ-V7S2T0BW - $79"

    That is not the prices. That is the cashback offered for those models. They are considerably more expensive than that.

      • No, that is the amount of cashback offered. Not the amount you will ultimately pay. Hence why your post has been updated by mods following my report. Even with cashback you won't be able to get those drives for even 3x those amounts.

  • Grabbed a gift card to get this on Afterpay, too good of a deal to miss imo.

  • This appears to be a TN panel with poor srgb%. Happy to be corrected.

    • No it's VA panel with 72% NTSC = 100% sRGB.

      • Source?

        • Dell Website, on Page 17, Option 1 (60Hz) Option 2 (144hz). Option 3 is for US.

          • @kml22: That confirms the colour coverage, but not the panel type. "WVA" is not a panel type, its a descriptive marketing term used by Dell. I'm personally not aware of Dell using VA panels at all. If it was an IPS panel they would presumably state that given they're deemed the "best" panel type for a given refresh rate. Apparently Dell has used WVA to describe "premium" TN panels in the past.

              • @kml22: WVA is just an abbreviation of Wide Viewing Angle, i.e. just marketing description.

                According to Jarrodtech's review, his unit's 144Hz panel has the model number BOE084A, which according to panelook (http://www.panelook.com/NV156FHM-N4N_BOE_15.6_LCM_parameter_...) it is an a-Si TFT panel i.e. a type of TN.

                Agreeing with Viper8, I'm pretty certain if the panel is a high refresh IPS panel, Dell is going to make sure it doesn't go unnoticed in the marketing materials.

                • @zrmx: Si TFT doesn't mean it's TN! You're getting confused. SiTFT is the backplane technology. It can be IPS VA TN, whatever.

                  If it was TN reviewers would've noticed and mentioned the poor viewing angles etc you get with it. It's very obvious.

                  Dell isn't marketing the screen as IPS because it probably isn't IPS, it's some IPS like panel. There's actually a lot more screen types than IPS, VA, TN etc. IPS is an LG trademark and so if the panel manufacturer isn't LG or licenced by LG you don't get to call it IPS. Manufacturers make similar panels with similar tech but they can't officially call them IPS. These panels are abundant in cheaper budget laptops. Laptops with TN screens nowadays, especially 144hz screens for gaming laptops are uncommon

                  IPS is great marketing, and judging by your response etc people don't even realise there's more out there.

                  • @Ark94: Thanks for pointing them out, I'm aware of more screen types but I wasn't aware that a-SiTFT is more just about the backplane rather than the actual panel tech. I stand corrected.

                    Being an IPS like panel makes sense and explains the wider viewing angle than what TN offers usually.

                • @zrmx: in dellspeak WVA is IPS family. if it's TN they just say "LED backlit"

                  look at your panelook link, at Display Mode: normally black
                  this is a dead giveaway. TN is normally white

      • Which one would be better for video editing/photo retouching/graphic design, this or the intel version?

        https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/548450#comment-8936224

        This one has better specs but VA panel

        • The 4800H is much better than that i7, it performs almost 25% better on the various benchmarks and is $300 cheaper. The screen on this is good with above 90% sRGB. I don't think there is anything to hesitate about.

    • According to the Laptopmag.com review this is what they commented about the 144hz screen for those asking about sRGB.

      "According to our colorimeter, the Dell G5 15 SE’s display nailed 108% of the sRGB color gamut, sliding past the 106% mainstream gaming laptop average. It also beat the HP Omen 15’s 102% and the Legion Y545’s 99%, but couldn’t quite keep up with the 117% from the Zephyrus G14.

      At 301 nits of brightness, the Dell G5 15 SE’s screen surpassed the 290-nit category average. It just barely beat the 300 nits from the Legion Y545, but wasn’t bright enough to match the Zephyrus G14 and the Omen 15, which hit 323 nits and 320 nits, respectively."

  • Jumped it, combined with cashback for a final price of ~$1567. Too good to miss.

  • Hackintosh potential?

  • damn, oos. do you think they will restock?

  • Grabbed one, thanks OP, should be a slight upgrade from my $300 dell travel laptop i use in bed.

  • sold out - great find OP! so much kit for great value - enjoy!

    I was almost about to pull trigger - I hesitated due to heating issues from Jarrodstech videos, even cooling pad didn't make a big difference due to dell design

    Hopefully OEM get AMD renoir laptops soon

  • Out of stock
    Nooooooooo

  • I regret ordering a desktop now…. especially that it's now 15 business days and tech fast edit just sent it

  • this is really good bargain.

  • Crap, too slow!

  • I know this seems like a great deal (and in theory, it is…) but I would warn people against ordering this laptop…
    I got the version with the 4600H and received it about a week ago but its been nothing but issues since I got it.
    There are issues with drivers or something to do with the GPU / CPU configuration, whenever a game loads - within a few minutes the OS hangs, crashes and reboots.
    This is quite a common issue with this laptop on the Dell Forums and there is currently no real fix to it.
    Dell technicians have been trying to work it out on my laptop for the past few days but I'm on the verge of asking for a refund because it's essentially a gaming laptop that cant run games… lol
    Other than that, it's great…

    PS. Sorry for the wall of text

    • I'm thinking of getting this more for productivity and photo/video editing and no gaming. Are your issues only related to gaming or could it affect other processes as well?

      • Anything that is graphics hardware intensive. For example, I've had it crash during a rendering test as well.
        Though if you're not using the laptop for graphics related work then I'd recommend putting your money towards a better system with no dedicated graphics card as that's one of the main selling points of this laptop.

    • (profanity) I wish I read this before ordering mine…
      sigh

    • Here what I noticed about the crashed and reboot issue. This often happen when you crank up the setting Higher then the GPU can handle, lower your setting and it won't happen, it's weird, how it allow you to crank up all the setting which used more than 6GB of GPU memory. DO THIS and it will no longer crashed or rebooted. I think either the game or the drivers let this happen.

      • It's crashed for me on Overwatch at medium settings, I don't think it's related to ingame settings - my 7 year old PC can run Overwatch on high settings so it'd astonish me if that's beyong this laptop's capabilities.

        • That's crazy, I don't play overwatch so I don't know. I can't really 100% blame on AMD, more game are designed to work better with Nvidia. But hey, no excuses right, they have been having drivers for years.
          Maybe give it a month or so for the drivers to mature, otherwise, return it and get a refund.
