    These are pretty thick and plasticy feeling but great value

    • +10 votes

      Actually not - both the display lid and the keyboard deck are made out of metal. What you have in mind is probably the Inspiron 3000 devices.

        Thanks looking to buy this for a general use in a office environment for word processing etc.

        Have you used this device before? From what I read it's metal and not very plasticky

        •  

          I have the 4700u version. The bottom lid is plastic and the screen surround is plastic.

          The only thing that I would call plastiky is probably the bottom lid, but it usually faces the desk instead of me, so it's not that bad.

          Also, the usually highly recommend Lenovo E15 only has a metal display lid - the rest of it is plastic. So, the Dell isn't really that bad in comparison.

        True. Just had a look at one at JB the other day. Was impressed

    How would it compare to the expired Lenovo deal? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/591614

    • +1 vote

      This Device has:
      Same Processor
      Same amount of RAM
      Double the Storage

      Not quite sure on the screens I'm going to assume they're quite same.

      They also seem to weigh the same which is not very light 1.7 kg

      •  

        And the Dell had a video card? Just bought the Lenovo for a little over $800 today. Oh well

        • +1 vote

          Nope that's the integrated graphics. Part of the processor in this case it is the exact same as that Lenovo you linked. Both devices have the 4500U processor from AMD.

            @Tehcookiemonsta: Ah, I see, thanks. Dell seems to list it separately to make it look better to us technologically inept buggers.

            •  

              @OldBugger: I think the budget Lenovo laptops have pretty dim screens. Say, around 400nits peak brightness.

              • +1 vote

                @Radiskull: The listing says 250nits supposedly for the Dell?

                • +1 vote

                  @OldBugger: I personally won't bother with anything too dim in the future.

                  I have a 350nits panel on my laptop and it's even hard to read stuff when the sun comes through the window. Having to work around the daylight to watch a movie sucks. (I know, I know.. curtains and sunglasse/s and night time, etc. but I don't have a dark room all the time)

              •  

                @Radiskull: I believe both the lenovo e15 (linked above) and the dell linked here only have 250 nits so it will be difficult to read outside in the sun. If its used indoors in an office enviroment then it might be sufficient but if it will be used outside then i would definitely look for a brighter screen.

      •  

        Personal preference. Dell batteries are potato and their warranty sucks, keep that in mind. Dell keeps tryna get thinner and the battery takes the hit.

        Beyond that, Dell's usually feel ever so slightly more premium over the E series Lenovo's (imo), but that's not to say the Lenovo's feel bad.

        •  

          And Dell are very hard to get parts for non warranty repairs such as broken hinges due to being dropped.
          Source: multiple separate experiences navigating Dell Support (clueless how to handle anything but warranty…) and misinformation/delay, despite quoting exact part numbers required.

          Dont expect quick fixes for non-warranty issues.

          •  

            @alxr0101: I wouldn't personally expect much more from Lenovo when it's something niche like a hinge mechanism.

            A battery or something more generic you'll have better odds with Lenovo, but the niche parts all manufacturers suck with these days. It's basically all aftermarket.

      Same here, the thinkpad keyboard should be better and it has the nub pointer.

      •  

        The thinkpad keyboard is a bit better but the keyboard deck on the E15 is plastic while the Dell 5505 has a metal keyboard deck.

        •  

          True, i might look into how much deckflex the e14 and 15 have

      Would be perfect, 15 is too big for me

    how many nits is the display? cant find it listed anywhere…

    • +2 votes

      The listing says 250nits.

      The panel itself is a BOE NV15N3D, which actually is 280 nits IPS panel.

    How are RYZEN and ATHLON processors comapred to i3 or i5

    • +1 vote
    •  

      Athlon = i3 < Ryzen 3 = i5/i7 < Ryzen 5 < Ryzen 7

      That's for the 4000 series anyway

    •  

      AMD Ryzen are the fastest processors overall that you can get at the moment in Widows based laptops and desktops. Unfortunately Intel has been sleeping on the job and has fallen behind. Intel are just relying on slick marketing to keep mind share for those that aren't aware of better competing products, such as AMD Ryzen.

    Could my father use this for playing FPS games from 10 years ago and perhaps Fortnite with lower settings?

    • +2 votes

      I say so, my i5 3570k can play Fortnite . That was a few years ago.

    • +1 vote

      The on board graphics of the R5 4500u will have no issues playing FPS games from 10 years ago. Though it would be better to have two sticks of 8gb RAM on this unit to run in dual channel mode and potentially obtain higher FPS.

      Please see demo YouTube video below of a R5 4500U, in dual channel mode, based laptop playing Fortnite at the recommended settings.

    How does this compare with the JB hifi Inspiron 15 5000 which is twice the price? it has 11th Generation Intel® Core™ i7.
    I have gift cards to spend at JB and have to get the wife a computer for work. I was looking at this one - https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/dell-inspiron-15-5000-14-...

    Is it worth the extra money?

    • +2 votes

      No it's definitely not worth the extra money. The laptops are almost the same. The only difference is i7 vs Ryzen 5 which won't make any difference for a work computer, in fact the Ryzen is arguably better

    • +1 vote

      Intel 11th i7 are only a 4 physical core processor. The AMD R5 4500U is a 6 core processor. Based on reviews it can be 30 to 50% faster than the 11th gen i7 in multi-threaded applications.

    Is someone at Dell a big fan of Legend of Zelda or Cyberpunk?

    not too bad

    how do you upgrade the ram yourself?

    Be aware that this laptop stutters randomly. Not sure why but at least once everytime its switched on or restarted.

    •  

      Yes, I have an Inspiron 15, 3000 with Intel Core I5, and 8g laptop which also stutters. It is only 18 months old, I have used PCCleaner and deleted unused programs and it still stutters now and then. Very disappointed.

      What do you mean by "stutters"?

        It repeats the letter p when you hit it

        You know the feeling when you slam the brakes on a car with ABS and feel the vibration? Same thing with this laptop, the whole system grinds to a halt only for 3-5 seconds but enough to make me misclick/mistype something or lose a game.

    Just see the review. Have alot of problem.

    Ryzen tho

    Can't find info on upgradeable memory on Dell webpage.How to get that info?

      Im wondering the same. Im pretty sure they are.

      •  

        Dual chanel and supports upto 32 gb. confirmed with Dell support chat.

  •  

    if the HYRULE code applied to other listings, it would be incredible sale. 7% for lovekeanu plus 14% for hyrule, 21% combined on top of already reduced price is kinda nuts.

    Just a heads up, Dell seems to have supply issues at the moment, I cancelled my black Friday order for this laptop as the ETA shifted to end of January.

    •  

      Was your order from ebay? I am in the process of cancelling my ebay order for this model. Chat on Dell's site stated delivered by 31 December for this model. Who to believe…

  •  

    Can this laptop be a budget gamer laptop?

    •  

      It'll run most online games fine with medium-low settings. The latest AAA games can be played but with 720p and very low settings.

    •  

      You can probably forget about playing Cyberpunk 2077 on it. Older games will run perfectly fine on Vega graphics.
