    May combine with this offer if targeted.

    • Probably excludes Dell Outlet

      • +3

        The terms don't exclude the outlet. They just say you have to spend at dell.com.au, and the outlet is under that domain. Ultimately, they are unlikely to be able to tell the difference anyway if the charge comes from the same merchant.

        BTW, Shopback has a spend $200 get $20 challenge listed for me in the app, so try stacking with that too. The outlet is excluded, but it's worth trying.

        • +2

          I guess it's worth trying but I feel like it won't work since the outlet is generally excluded from promotions like that.
          Highly doubt the shopback one will even track but nothing to lose trying I suppose

          • @FireRunner: i bought 3 dell laptops through shopback and the outlet. got shop back on 1 and 2 apologies on the other 2. lost 100s on that one

        • Alternatively, estore at velocity has an increased points earn $1 = 8 velocity points until 30/6. For those collecting for flights redemption, this may be of better value.

    • +4

      Can confirm. Bought an Inspiron from outlet 2 weeks ago and received the statement credit

      • Did you or anyone else successful in splitting payment into 2 credit cards on Dell Outlet? I tried doing so via live chat but was told they can't do it on the Outlet platform.

  • How is the build quality on the G3 gaming laptops?

    • Quality is good got 17 inch i7 144hz refresh.. got some weight.. runs games smooth. i did upgraded my ssd to 1tb evo plus
      Fan noise & runs random sometimes doesnt bother me ..ppl complain about keyboard.. but havent got any problem on my side am happy
      But if u can spend more wait for deals as they keep comin now & then i paid i think 1600 for new was 2400 or 2500

    Anyone have current 13" XPS with intell 11 gen and can provide comment? I have older one with 6th gen 4k touch….coil whine started..

    Or is lenovo better with ryzen chips? Not gaming.

    • No coil whine on mine

    • For what it's worth, I've got a 9310 with 11th Gen Intel.
      6 months old, sleep mode freezes and overheats if plugged in to socket or a dell dock. Keyboard and track pad warped, likely due to swollen battery. I just haven't had time to get onto them to organize a replacement.

      I had a similar problem with an XPS 5-6 years ago, but all my other dells have been trouble free.

    • I had coil whine for but on my old xps 13 but grabbed a bios update that seemed to stop it. YMMV

  • +6

    I was going to post this, but for G series laptops 120hz 250nit screens are low grade, and I advise against getting any of those

    well unless you are planning to exclusively game on external monitors

    otherwise G7 7700 is a good deal and a good screen, but then you are stepping into a different price category and there are brand new rivals on eBay sales, so..

    • +1

      Good point, make sure you look at the display specs. There's even a 220nit 60Hz display on one of the laptops which sounds abysmal

  • Anyone can vouch for the refurbished laptop conditions from previous sales?

    • +1

      Brilliant quality, and combined with fantastic warranty!

    • +1

      I've purchased a number of times.
      Great condition, you might notice a couple of minor marks/scratches to exterior but nothing terrible.
      I bought a "scratch and dent" once and it a few light scratches to the lid and underside

    Thanks OP. If you’ve got time, could you please tell me, as I’m a complete non-starter when it comes to PC hardware these days - is the 1650 GTX any good? Ideally, I’d like to be able to play both Skyrim, and Fallout 4 on very high graphics settings with lots of mods enabled. Would this do the trick do you think?

    • +1

      Yeah it should handle both those games on max graphics settings with mods well

      • +1

        Okay, great. Thanks so much for the reply!

  • +1

    I purchased mine back in November, after 2 months of very basic use I had motherboard issues and warranty was great they replaced the motherboard. 2 weeks after the service my USB ports stopped working and returned the unit. May be it was just bad luck for me.

    Acer nitro 10300h, 8gb RAM, 3060 is $1230 (with shopback gc) at HN. Also get 150 bucks of in store credit to put towards logitech or astro /blue mic products. ALSO get a couple free games with the Intel promo. And its not refurbished.

    You can get around 37MH/s mining with good temps - whereas there is no way to effectively recoup your costs with a 1650ti, gaming performance is acceptable (eons better than a 1650ti). Probably the best budget laptop deal at the moment if you don't mind the lower end 10300h. If you like multitasking, 8gb RAM can be upgraded yourself as required.

    • Pretty different laptops. For someone just after an entry level gaming laptop this is a great bargain for $740 imo
      If you want best value gaming laptop then sure that Acer Nitro sounds like a good deal.

      • Sure if your running old games on low settings and don't care about mining (free money though) the 700 dollar ti is ok I guess.

        Not where I'd be spending my money though.

        • +1

          running old games on low settings

          A 1650Ti isn't that bad lol. It's decent for modern titles maybe around medium settings 1920x1080 @ 60FPS
          See some benchmarks here

    • How did you go a our the in-store credit on the purchase?

      I brought mine on Friday and they didn't mention anything about that only the Intel/Unisoft games

      • Just go in and show them the advert. The staff didn't really understand the promo but I still walked out with $600 of logitech gear on the house ;)

        • They of course probably don't want to be upfront about it with instore sales unless prompted and shown. It just loses them money. I was able to select any product in those lines to use the credit on.

        • Curious, did you buy 4 laptops to get the $600 worth of Logitech?

        • Plus one.

          But also took up the 60 months interest free offer and got the $100/$1,000 gift card offer which I applied against three of the laptops.

          • @RustyOz: Yeah I'd rather not cop the credit check so decided against that option. Good on you though! Makes them like 1000 dollars a pop.

            • @Canberralad92: I'd also be really interested to hear if you can pay the balance off in the first month? And which credit service u used to sign up? Do they have a monthly fee. The terms and conditions seem extremely shady so hoping you didn't get sucked into anything bad.

    For a cheap powerful-ish 14" this looks like great value. Have one silver and one 'eden' on the site.

    Inspiron 14 5402 - Intel i7-1165G7, 16GB DDR-3200, 512GB NVMe, 14" 300nits 1080p non-touch, 53wh battery for $789


    • How does the onboard graohics card compare to gtx1650

      • Haven't checked specifically, but I would guess half the performance of a GTX1650 (which is near half that of GTX1660ti if IIRC), but twice the performance of 10th Gen intel iris iGPU. Can play 1080p AAA games as I have the same spec in my Inspiron 15.

      • +1

        Intel Iris XE is comparable to an Nvidia MX350.
        A GTX1650 will destroy it

        • +1

          Yep. That machine is for portable productivity with decent battery life and a better screen than many budget machines with 300nits. For gaming look elsewhere

          • @TheLurker: It's probably ok for esports and older titles. Definitely not for any modern AAA titles

            • @FireRunner: It does better than I expected for casual gaming, though that's not its primary use of course.

              This vid (first hit I found so you may find better) tests GTAV, Witcher 3, SotTR, Forza Horizon 4, Apex Legends, RDR2, Valorant, Fifa 21 on an Acer Swift 3 with same CPU/iGPU but only 8GB. Intel showed it playing Battlefield V at launch. Pretty current titles obviously at lower detail settings and expect 30fps which is bearable only

    Great price for these specs IMO

    If you’re after a 17”

    • Not that much more than an RTX 2070 GPU in today's market. Good deal!

    • It was $1.6k a few weeks ago brand new.

      • +1

        On eBay. If you can’t wait, this isn’t a bad deal for $140 less, which you can upgrade the warranty. I got a dell refurb and it looked brand new untouched.

    • I was just about to post this. Great price for the specs.
      Shame about the thermals on the Dell G series (I have a G5 15 and regularly shuts down from overheating).

      • +1

        I have one too, never has shut down..nor for my kids who sometimes play for hours

  • Picked up a XPS 9310 for the mother in law.

    Got one a while back from the outlet for work, and its been mostly okay bar a bit of coil whine. Was tempted to go new with the OLED display but doubt the MIL will care, so 1080p for her ;)

    • Which model have you got? Was considering the i7/16/512 as an upgrade to an old 2-in1 with the slow Y series CPU

      • 7290 10th gen intel

        It’s pretty decent for a light use machine. If I was doing any work on it I’d go with Ryzen

  • Looking for a laptop to do some on-the-go live streaming/production with and eyeing between either one of the Dell refurb Tiger Lake i7's for $700-800 or spending a bit extra on the Lenovo EOFY sale and grabbing a 5500U Ideapad/4700U Thinkpad for $1k. Thunderbolt and Iris XE seems nice but CPU wise the Ryzen just has more raw power?

    • If you are going to be doing some on the go live streaming/production, you are going to be limited by the quad cores on the Tiger Lake CPU. Intel marketing has been criticized online for heavily fudging their benchmarks by not showing an apples to apples comparison. Unfortunately Tiger Lake performance diminishes when the TDP is approximately 15w and this includes XE graphics, with unreliable drivers.

      If you have access to an .edu email, you can get a Lenovo Ideapad 3 14" with 5700U(8c/16t) CPU, 12GB RAM, 512 SSD, new for $854.10 with their EOFY promotion.

      If your budget can go just over $1000, I would look at the Lenvo s540 13" with a 4800U, QHD 99% SRGB screen, 16GB RAM and 512 SSD for $1106.

    • Don't discount the value of build quality. The Thinkpad will be much better built and repairable than the other consumer grade rubbish.
      OTOH isn't there thunderbolt music peripherals now, I dunno, thats the main issue with Ryzen ATM

  • These are manufacturer refurbs?

    • Officially refurbs… but the one I got, and what many says, is that they are indistinguishable from brand new

  • Yes, Dell refurbishes them and sells directly through their outlet.

  • any 14inch laptops with 1660ti??

  • Looking for a laptop for parents ~$700 - any recommendations from here or otherwise? Mostly just looking for OK performance for Word Processing, general browsing, and a decent display (if possible).

  • +2

    Thanks OP. Had been after a laptop and wanted the XPS 13, but the i7 11th gen was out of my price range. This brought it down to $800ish less than its selling for on the Dell page.

  • with this outlet deal, if i DIY by adding ram and change to larger capacity ssd , does it void the dell 3 year pro support warranty?
    looking at one of the optiplex desktop.
    i'm after a desktop deal with i7 for work under 1k

    • Which of the laptops have 3-year warranty? I can only see: "1Yr Ltd Hardware Warranty, InHome Service after Remote Diagnosis"

      • not the laptop, its the desktop that comes with 3 year pro support

        • My bad, should have read the whole thing!

    • +1

      Upgrading storage and memory doesn't void warranty unless you damage something when attempting to upgrade the parts or the replaced part is somehow responsible for damaging the system.

  • Looking at some xps 17 models in the outlet.
    - is it possible to customise at all after speaking to customer support, most models have win 10 home , but I need win 10 pro?
    - Any coupons that work on the outlet?
    - Will customer support haggle at all, they always seam too on the normal store, anyone had success in the outlet?
    - Does Australian Consumer Law still apply, or does it get murky with a refurb?

  • Missed out on the refurb laptop 🥲

    • Keep an eye out on the website. I reckon they will add more laptops before the end of the sale. Might not be the same ones as listed in the OP though

      • Looking for anything around $700ish. I have a $100 coupon over $200 spend ready to go… hopefully something with a 1650ti. Want to be able to game on the go especially when I get quarantined in a hotel for travel..

        • How'd you get the coupon?

        • I'd check the T&Cs on that coupon. Items from the outlet are often excluded

          • +1

            @FireRunner: I contacted Dell Advantage. They gave me no T&C's for the coupon as I said that I never received one from a purchase six months ago. Literally sent me the voucher code and that's it.
