Seems like a really good laptop deal. I have been searching for specs like this for under $900 and haven't found much at all. $836 with LOVEKEANU code.

This is part of Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals for 2020

    The price.

  • Store and price in title

    Yes, you are missing the price

  • +4

    Yes! A description, a price, a store, a link. Actually any useful information at all is what is missing.

    I think you should buy it!

    • Sold! lol

      Yes, this is a good price, will need to upgrade from Windows S though. This is the lowest Inspiron tier laptop, but discrete graphics, i7 and 512GB SSD, 8 GB RAM 3200MHz (I assume has two slots for expansion). Go for it. The screen might be sub-par though.

  • Most things required by this site - Yes you are missing something…

    Hey, it's my second post. Sorry guys.

    Bro those specs for the price are insane!

    • The fact that is has 11th gen i7 sells itself

  • +1

    I'd check the screen specs tbh, the new inspiron 15 5000, have only 220 nits and 45% NTSC and some reviews said that the screen was almost unusable but I didnt look at the 3000 line.

    • "some reviews said that the screen was almost unusable "

      I'm assuming this is outside because the screen shouldn't have any major issues inside unless you're a literal graphics designer or something along those lines.

      • edited: you are probs right - I'd personally look for a screen with 300nits minimum but your needs may vary.

        I'll see myself out lol

        • I reckon it depends what you plan to use it for.

          If you're inside all the time, maybe you're a student then 220 nits is enough.

          For someone like me, I never put my laptop on full brightness. I don't like a super bright screen, I usually have it at 50% maybe 75%.

          Now, if you like using your laptop at the cafe outdoors or anything like that then I agree go for at least 300 nits (even that is probably not enough if the sun is bright enough)

    • I can't find the detailed screen specs. I also can't find the bad reviews about the screen. The reviews on the Dell website are generally good for the 3000 series. See the reviews here:

  • Also add the LOVEKEANU coupon

    Sorry, $836 with LOVEKEANU code

  • Windows 10 Home (S mode) 64-bit

    That's the bit that sux. $100 for professional or there are other ways I hear…

    • Is Windows 10 home not so good? Sorry, I'm not good at tech.

      • Home is good, s mode is not.

        "Windows 10 in S mode is a version of Windows 10 that's streamlined for security and performance, while providing a familiar Windows experience. To increase security, it allows only apps from the Microsoft Store, and requires Microsoft Edge for safe browsing. "

        Although I have never heard of "Home S mode"

        • Ah, damn, that does sound very annoying. I was about to purchase. Thanks very much for the help.

          • +8

            @freddo4y: They're missing a very crucial bit of information. In the Microsoft Store is a free upgrade to the standard Windows 10 Home and it's literally a click to changeover.

            The real downside of this laptop is only 10/100 Ethernet. No gigabit to be found unfortunately.

            • @Clear: Oh, thanks Clear. I rarely use Ethernet.

        • +1

          Actually, it seems you can leave S mode for free (a one time change). See the Microsoft page:
          https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-in-s-....

          • @freddo4y: Just confirmed with Dell Chat, yes you can switch out of S mode. So this is a great deal

    • +1

      You could always install a fresh Windows 10 Home or Pro and leave the "Activate Windows" message

      • See my post above. You can leave S mode easily and for free it appears.

  • May i ask if i bought from shop back can get 10 % cash back and the 100 dollar challange?

    • Don't see why not.
      Some folks are just worried that the cashback won't be honoured, or that it'll take a few months to get it, I assume that's why OP didn't mention it.

      Or maybe he simply didn't know.

      • I didn't know about that. Thanks

  • +1

    Just saw this, and want to know if it is a better option:
    https://deals.dell.com/en-us/productdetail/62qy
    It's got a 120hz display
    Edit: Just noticed the price was in USD

    • For a second, I thought it was $850 AUD. If that was the case, that would be an insane deal.

      However, this is the US store that you're looking at so it is $850 USD.

  • Ryzen 7 4700U vs i7-1165G7, very hard decision to make.

    • depends on your use case

      if you want to do some light gaming and stuff for example, this will be better. Just check for your usecase online

  • Looks like a horrid Dell keyboard that is unusable for any serious activity. Not backlit either. :-(

    • I didn't find any reviews complaining about the new series 3000 keyboard.

  • I was looking at the other Dell deal which is cheaper but assume the Vostro range is more lower end and is also a bit larger.

  • This or Dell Vostro https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/584031?

    Or anything else in this price range? I couldn't find any on Ozbargain. Thank you.

  • Hi guys taking into account your expertise…Any cons on this ?
    I will probably buy it tomorrow if I don't see any asus (i just like that brand more).
    I would use it mainly for office duties - spreadsheets - inside doors and looking to upgrade with another ram stick after purchase and possibly in the future a hdd.

    TIA!

    • Did you end up buying it?
