Dell Vostro 15 7590 - i5-9300H, GTX 1050, FullHD IPS 72% NTSC, 256GB SSD - $1170 (RRP $2419) @ Dell

160
EXTRA10

Another hidden gem from Dell

  • i5-9300H
  • GTX 1050 3GB
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256GB SSD
  • FullHD IPS - DELL says this is 72% NTSC which means close to full sRGB coverage
  • screen is non-touch

suits people who want a gaming machine that doesn't make you look like a doofus in a meeting room if you also want to do your work on it. Vostro 7000 means and looks business, but you can also fire up a game and spend the time productively if you wish

premium build. also sRGB coverage means you can edit photos on this, and also media consumption will be a joy. photographers rejoice

also battery is 56Wh which is bigger than they usually pack in this price range gaming machines.

not for everyone, but still a viable option I think

P.S. code EXTRA10 expires 3rd September.

edit: extended by another week till 10th

  • I have to admit I haven't bought a consumer or prosumer laptop in a while… but the specs of a 9th gen i5, 8gb RAM, 250gb SSD and a low powered GTX 1050 sound very 2017/18 to me (except the 9th gen CPU).

    ps. the laptop review you linked to above is for the Dell Inspiron 15 7590… I assume that's a different model to the Vostro in this deal?

    • my bad, I'll fix that. odd that's what google returned

      regarding the config, think about what you are looking at here. this is a business machine. if you open a Dell price list with business hardware, you will find laptops with i3-7020U. I am not kidding, 7th gen Intel, Karl

      on the business market it's not the cutting edge tech that matters, it's how well the system is ironed out. yep the hardware might be older, but it's optimized to last longer, that's Dell philosophy

      ..said the guy typing on a Dell Latitude 3490 powered by i3-7130U

  • You will get barely playable frame rates at 1080p in modern tiles with a 1050 mobile. It's equivalent to an old school GTX 965M. You'll need to set to 720p low if you want consistent 60fps.

    • I always thought the notebook versions of the 10 series were identical to the desktop version, TIL.

    • depends on what you play. I am not marketing this as gaming laptop, and neither does Dell. This is a work laptop that can also do some gaming for you, you can't have everything (not at this price range)

      but a viable option for some, who want a light laptop with premium build that can do some gaming when you feel like it

      a gamer wouldn't buy this

  • 1650 is available cheaper if you're happy with refurb https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/562097

    Edit: Noticed u mentioned in your other thread

  • G5 doesn't have thunderbolt :-(

    Does anyone know if the vostro is made of metal or plastic?

  • thanks everyone for suggestions in this and other posts, I finally pulled the trigger on an Acer Nitro 5 with 9300H and 1650 for $900
