Dell Inspiron 14 7405 2-in-1 Laptop with AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, 16GB RAM & 512GB SSD $1519 + Delivery (C&C/ in-Store) @ JB Hi-Fi

90

Decent price for a 16GB RAM laptop with AMD Ryzen 7 processor.

I actually bought mine from Dell eBay (may still be active) for the same price before JB announced this.

From my research, I believe this is dual single channel, but is upgradeable to 32GB. You are also able to upgrade the SSD.

  • Wow, it looks like a good Longjonh 92. Can you please confirm if the laptop is over heating and getting very hot? I had to return a Dell Inspiron 15, 3505 because it was getting extremely hot. This was disappointing because it was fast, had a good screen and light.

    • Haven't received mine from Dell yet. It's expected to arrive on the 31st March.

    • I have the dell Inspiron 7405 and it definitely gets quite warm after some periods of moderate use. Make sure you give the intake some breathing room, as it definitely can get on the hot side when depending on the use case.

      Depending on what you use your 3505 for and how long you use it for, i can't really say whether the 7405 will be "hot" or not.

      I also can't speak for whether you'll enjoy the screen on the 7405 or not but i can say its what you'd roughly expect at this price. Not the most vibrant and almost impossible in outdoor situations.

      One huge annoyance is that the 7405 has some fancy hinge that extends downwards when you open it up. This cuts into your legs when you use it on your lap.

      The great thing about the 7405 is its one of the few without ryzen 7 4700u laptops with non-soldered ram and ssd. (Swapped mine to 1tb ssd and 32gb ram when i got mine)

      • I have this laptop too and looking to upgrade the RAM.

        Can you link the RAM you purchased for the laptop. Thanks

        • https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07BGLKD4M

          This was the kit i bought (2x16gb, 3200mhz option). I wanted to keep the two modules consistent because there's a mismatch in timings with the original ram, and the bios options on the laptop are next to useless. For the best chance of success, make sure when picking ram, they list 3200mhz memory speed in their jedec timing table (you can sometimes find it in their spec sheet).

          Also be gentle when you're opening the plastic bottom cover as the clips are fragile. You may want to also swap the ssd and do whatever else you're comfortable with doing when you have it open (i also changed the thermal paste).

          • @wwwsam: Thanks @wwwsam. Also did you swap out the SSD and if so what did you replace it with.

            I don't mind the stock one but 1TB SSD would be nice.

      • Ok wwsam, thank you very much for replying and giving us a review of your experience with your Dell laptop. Greatly appreciated. Cheers

  • A couple of questions:
    Is this screen 250nits or is it a higher one?
    What's the battery life on this unit like?

    • I think it's about 250nits and not high quality either.

    • Yeah its around 250nits (i think the wording was 250nits nominal) and not very vibrant. It's essentially what you'd expect at around $1500 with a ryzen 7 4700u.

      It's definitely a challenge to use outdoors but no problems what so ever indoors unless you have brought lights behind you..

  • For about $1750, you can get a X1 Yoga 4th gen with i5-10210U and 16GB RAM from Mobileciti. It'll have better usability in terms of screen (400 nits, ~95% sRGB), keyboard, trackpad quality and build quality, albeit slightly older hardware with weaker CPU performance (though it won't matter too much if you're only web browsing and working with Office docs). But it does use LPDDR3, so it might save power compared to this one. Depends on what kind of computer you need.

  • Just an FYI as well, the default configuration of this laptop on the Dell site is 1x16GB, DDR4, 3200MHz, meaning it's (probably) running on single channel memory. You can open task manager and see how many slots are being used.

    https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-au/product-support/prod...

    The laptop has 2 SODIMM slots so memory upgrades are possible.

    As for display:

    Luminance (typical) 220 nits
    Color gamut NTSC (45% typical)
    Pixels Per Inch (PPI) 157 PPI
    Contrast ratio (min) 20.83
    Response time (max) 35 ms
    Refresh rate 60 Hz

    220 nits is quite 'bottom of the barrel' specification for a 2 in 1.
