LOVEKEANU

Found a really great looking deal on a 2070 gaming laptop from Dell, even if it is just a Max-Q version. Looks like it's ready for next business day delivery and 10% cash back at cash rewards bringing the price to $1,419.5. Really difficult to make a decision on what gaming laptop to buy today :/

  • Apologies - I'm totally out of the loop (and lazy to Google) - what's wrong with Max Q?

    • +2

      its more power efficient but less powerful

    • +2

      The Max-Q version is designed for thin and light laptops so it uses less power, puts out less heat and gives overall less performance. Still a powerful chip but considerably weaker than laptops with full fat RTX 2070s. Here are some differences with the 2070 and 2070 Max-Q

      • +1

        Here's the two GPU's in a side-by-side comparison from same site. Note that the numbers can be a bit rough since results are taken across a variety of laptops with different configurations

  • +3

    I got this exact model except with a 2060 (dont think its a MaxQ) and can highly recommend it. Does get quite warm, but never had a laptop that doesn't.

    Very smooth and no issues other than when I udated the alienware app, kept getting blue screen so formatted

    • Funnily enough the RTX 2060 non Max-Q that you've got performs essentially the same as the RTX 2070 Max-Q. You made the right choice!

      • Ah good. And I got mine for $1360~ About 3-4 months ago. It was from outlet store. Looked brand new when I got it.

  • +14

    I've got this laptop. Would not recommend. It's hot hot hot! And keeps shutting down after about 30 minutes of light gaming (fortnite). This is after reapplying thermal paste, undervolting and sitting on a laptop fan.

    • +3

      wow, how can they even allow to sell it then??

    • +1

      I can confirm that this is the case for many Dell laptop models. Some models even have BIOS locked max temperature so while it's safe to use normally, it's very annoying to see lag spike while gaming because CPU/GPU clock dropped to keep the temperature below limit.

      • +2

        I have a dell vostro and my laptop idles at 60 degrees.

        I feel like "gaming laptops" are a scam since they don't even perform what they are supposed to

        • +1

          They are really a scam. Their legit gaming laptops are the Alienware series, but Alienware brand are super overpriced even with discount.

          So you either ended up buying a scam of Dell gaming laptop, or paying for overpriced Alienware brand.

            @Moonlight Flower: I heard the Asus G14 is good

            I'm waiting for the 1660ti version to hit sub $1400

          • @Moonlight Flower: Haven't had any issues with Lenovo Legion laptops. I'm able to play destiny or outer worlds consistently with my 2060 equiped Legion.

    • That's terrible why don't you return it?

      My 4 year old precision 3510 (same as latitude 5520) does the same thing when running 100% CPU on autocad

      Dies completely

      Used to do it instantly but after reapplying thermal paste lasted a bit longer

      The hinge is coming off too which is why I upgraded

    • +1

      I know you've probably tried, but just incase - I'd recommend setting a max frame rate within the game settings if you haven't done so. Capping at 60fps could fix your problem

      • Actually, I haven't tried reducing the frame rate. Will give it a go

    • +1

      I agree with this. My G5 (AMD Version) is awaiting collection by Dell for a refund, after 2 new Motherboards, new SSD and new RAM within 2 months.

      Constant restarts (instant black) and boot issues and freezing issues I can't be bothered with it.

  • 3DMark Time Spy Score 6557 points

    • That's quite low have you got a link?

      Must be all the cooling problems mentioned above

  • +1

    Also Cash Rewards offer 10% cashsback atm for G Series if you are Ok with the hot issues as some OP pointed.

  • +2

    Lenovo 5i might be better with its cooling system

  • -2

    Tbh not really a deal. Each to their own I guess.

    • +1

      Agree but anything with a decent card seems overpriced these days if you need a new "casual gaming" laptop, and any great model takes weeks to order, unless 1660ti is enough for you which it's not quite for me, the newer 2060's (similar or better performance to these 2070 max-q's) being my bottom line

    • +4

      Can you elaborate why its not a good deal?
      Would you have a link to a better one?

    • -1

      Agreed.
      Objectively it's a deal, but the price/performance or value proposition is quite poor, and then factoring in the mixed reviews in the comments here, I'm also staying clear.

      • +1

        Why the upvote?

        • Objectively, it's a deal (i.e., components compared to other laptops are good for the price), so upvote.

          But if I'm paying $1561 (for my requirements - to power a racing sim) - it's a lot of money to gamble with if it potentially throttles performance and overheats.

          As per the link from canberrascooter, I'm going with the Lenovo 5i for $1600.

          • @Edgecate: If you're powering a sim I'd assume it's a fixed setup

            Better to go for a desktop surely?

            This kind of laptop is for occasional moving about so if you're not using it you're better with 50-100% better performance of a desktop

  • Thanks, just ordered one with 1660 ti, after cashback is around $1250, next day delivery

  • Is it odd that nowadays any system being sold with a GPU should IMO, be factoring in potential mining revenue as part of its value proposition?

    The max q does push 40MH.

    • And the 1660ti should push 31MH.

    • Only when mining has a strong ROI on the purchase. Ie. "Days to pay off"

      • This is similar mining performance to a 3060 max p laptop. Which can be had around 1550-1600 dollars on sale/cashback.

        • Can you link me to a time a 3060 laptop has ever been sold for $1600? I’m interested because I’m keeping an eye on prices
