Dell Inspiron 15 i7-11370H 11th Gen, 16GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM, 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, 1080p WVA $1237.83 Posted @ Dell Australia

Not the cheapest these have been, back in May 21 they were $1199 but went OOS fast. This deal is only $39 more. Remember to use Cashrewards and save an additional 3% bringing it to around $1200 flat.

Great laptop for kids going through school. Large 1TB SSD for all their assignments and a decent CPU/RAM combo for general computer usage. Specs are:

  • i7-11370H - Better than last year's i7-1165/85G7 chips, single core performance is much better, but in any case this isn't a machine built for raw processing power.
  • 16GB DDR4 3200mhz RAM
  • 1080P Screen - Unfortunately 16:9, would have been amazing if it was 16:10. Average screen TBH and ok peak brightness.
  • Intel Iris XE Integrated Graphics - Not actually terrible, somewhere between an MX330 and MX350. Will play some basic games like LOL/CSGO fine.
  • Thunderbolt 4 / Fullsize SD Card Reader / USB 3.2 Type A and C
  • 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD for speedy file transfers

Also of note, this is the newest refresh of the Inspiron 15, you might find cheaper using the older i5-1135 / i7-1165G7/1185G7 chips. There are also a couple of deals on extended warranty which you might want to consider, especially if you intend on purchasing for school kids:

  • 3Y Premium Support and Onsite Service - $222.38 Now $129.72
  • 3Y Premium Support Plus and Onsite Service - $627.78 Now $393.23 (Expensive but includes accidental damage repair)

This really is the best bang for buck at this price point. Other manufacturers have similar models at varying price points above, but either sacrifice on weight and bulkiness, 8GB RAM or 512GB SSDs. Lenovo's best offering at a similar price point is the IdeaPad 3i @ $1279. Last year's processor, only 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD however does come with an MX450 which is better than iris XE integrated, but I wouldn't be buying either of these for GPU performance.

Happy Dealing!

    They never say whether there is a spare NVMe slot. I'm assuming there is no SATA bay.
    But 1TB SSD is well above average for this price point.

      If you have an edu email and don't need Thunderbolt, just get the Lenovo S540, with the AMD Ryzen 4800u 8 core CPU for $1106. Lenovo has better build quality with aluminium chassis, better multi-core CPU, 16gb RAM, QHD(2560*1600) 16:10 IPS screen and 512 SSD.

        A note that TB is not necessary for 2 x monitor displays (not 4k). I have S540 and can connect up to 2 monitors via a Dell universal dock

        so the IdeaPad is better?

        • +1 vote

          The S540 is a different level to Lenovo regular IdeaPad line. The S540 is better then this Inspiron. The AMD CPU alone can be up 45% faster compared to the Intel one in certain workloads.

        Do they have one for that price with the new 5000 series processor? I swear I saw it a couple of weeks ago.

    This is a great laptop at a great price, but 1080p 16:9? At least 1440p would have been waaay better

      Would like a touchscreen with that? Hell, why not make it 4K in the same vein?

      1080p is great for this price

    Hi OP, Where do I find the colour options to select Mist Blue?

    How the built quality of Inspiron class?

    •  

      Pretty basic, though this seems to be a new chassis that ditches the plastic hinge cover that was asking to break.

      My partner and I both own XPS 13 2in1's so can't really comment unfortunately, but from what I have read, metal construction isn't as good as XPS as XPS are machined from a single piece as opposed to moulded.

      •  

        Yes, thats what I heard about Inspiron, but I guess that why the price is reasonable lower

    I got the Lenovo slim 5i for little bit less at 1268. On sale on education store from 1749.

    54Wh battery is a bit small for the 35w cpu

      Think you can get a compatible 97Whr battery for this.

    wait for the acer swift x, it comes with 3050ti

      Do you know what the AUD RRP will be on those? Whilst the equivalent for the base i’ve seen is $900USD at an exchange of $1160 AUD, I highly doubt we will see the base spec under $1,500 here.

      We always get the AUD tax on electronics.

        I was hoping for exactly what you said, $1160

        The previous swift versions are going for $1000-$1100 so I hope it will hold up for that price. Worth the wait I guess

      Acer build quality really isn't great though

    Nice find, thanks OP.
    Is there anybody out here that had a chance to compare photo processing time between such an i7 compared to the new M1 chip on the slightly dearer Macbook air?

    The Macbook has crap specs on paper but I am planing to hook a light notebook to a 4k monitor for photo and video processing only.

      Which software? Lightroom classic runs better on the M1 than on Intel. It is also a bloated piece of crap that should run fast on any modern PC but sadly that's not the case. If you are stuck with Lightroom due to a big catalog the M1 may be the way to go. Saying that this Dell systems should be not bad, and given you will get a lot more storage than on the Mac you may be able to put your whole catalog on the internal SSD. The screen on the Dell is obviously crap but if you are only editing on external monitor that should not matter

      If you are using Capture One or Photoshop than both M1 and Intel systems run very fast

      I have both an M1 MBP and Surface Book 3 15.

    •  

      If you are doing multi core work I’d go the M1 hands down.

    •  

      If you don't need windows in your workflow then MacBook Air would be a far better choice. Even if you do need windows, there are better choice around (the screen on the Inspiron is 45% NTSC I believe, not great for your use case).

      Slightly different, this is 1TB NVMe vs 512GB NVMe SSD.

      Probably worth it's own post but I will mention in OG up top for those only needing 512GB
