G15 5515 Gaming Laptop AMD Ryzen 5 5600H 8GB 256GB RTX 3050

I have been looking for a laptop for my wife (although she doesn't game) and it seems like a pretty good deal.

Yes the screen brightness is a setback at 250 nits , but it is a solid chip and should have good battery life.

She doesn't need it too portable and does like the larger screen.

About to pull the trigger unless some ozbarginers can point me in a better direction.

Just checking to see if i can put another stick of Ram inside and will update when i find out

Hopefully this deal is good for some.

Will be a bit overboard for my wife that will just browse and run spreadsheets off, but for the specs it will be good

Edit: I have been told the RAM is upgradable
Edit 2: cheapest it has been is $899: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/635777

      Only very few people use laptop screen this days, so this is bonus to low the cost of it.

      45% NTSC, aka about 68% sRGB. Maximum response times and contrast are also awful.

      Once again, 250 nits means nothing for SDR content.

    If you're happy to forgo the discreet graphics, plenty of other 15" deals pop up for Ryzen CPU and double RAM and SSD size for around same price (and perhaps an IPS screen too?).

    I'm no hardcore gamer, but have done some very casual 720p gaming with mates on my Asus Vivobook with Ryzen 4700U which works well.

      have a few gaming laptops and I come to a conclusion - the main limiting factor is cooling, not CPU, I even lowered my i9 to 3500 to make fans noise lower, and on other i5 have fans at full speed with the same 3500. fps and temp are still the same on both around 75-80 degrees both GPU and CPU with 25% differences in fps in similar games. Of course i9 like 4x more expensive) so the cooling pad is a must for gaming

    Good laptop but it has been cheaper before at $899

      Dam - now i have to wait for that price again - thanks for checking

    •  

      That was a great price. Not sure if we'll see it again anytime soon

  •  

    4gb GPU not cutting it these days for gaming

    •  

      Agree, but she won't be using it for gaming was going for the better build quality

        I don't think this sounds like the right laptop. It's a low end gaming laptop which has made some compromises to get it this price.
        There's plenty of other 15 inch laptops which would be better suited for browsing and productivity

        •  

          You are probably right - i'll keep looking

        •  

          Agreed, much better to look for something with a better screen (which is where the most cost cutting happens on entry to mid level)

          •  

            @reactor-au: I was looking at the deal deals - trying to get a XPS for her with keeping the price down. We have had issues with Lenovo's before so that won't be an option.
            This might be a better option for a $999

              @tnarg: With Dell, anything 7000 series should have a decent screen. Just keep in mind a 13" laptop/notebook is pretty small screen wise, I would recommend against for daily use unless travelling a lot or using an external screen.

      •  

        This will definitely not have good build quality, it is a budget gaming laptop these range of laptops have by far the worst build quality out of any laptop other than the $200-400 range.

  •  

    Is it just me or somebody else also finds laptop's fat a** ugly? I don't game either and in market for a decent laptop. Configuration is decent but cannot tolerate how it looks.

    even if it is an acer…

  •  

    any idea if this can be connected to two monitors for general office work when required

    •  
      1. SuperSpeed USB 2.0 | 2. SuperSpeed USB 2.0 with PowerShare | 3. USB Type-C® | 4. SuperSpeed USB 3.2 | 5. HDMI | 6. Power In | 7. RJ45 Ethernet | 8. Headphones/Microphone

      Only one HDMI - but yes with the right adaptors you can have 2 connected

    •  

      You'd better have a USB hub that can fix this kind of problem forever.

    oopz! I have ordered a Lenovo IdeaPad (soldered RAM) for $1303 quite similar specs from this deal :(

    should I cancel it and get this one >?

    Ryzen 5600H
    16GB RAM
    512 SSD
    WQXGA (2560x1600) IPS 350nits Anti-glare, 60Hz, 100% sRGB

      Depends what you what it for.
      Much better screen etc with what you bought.
      As others have mentioned it is only $GB on both GPU's
      For gaming laptops there are better options with a 1650TI

      •  

        hope so, may be upgrading RAM,SSD and DISPLAY of this will compensate for $264

        • +1 vote

          I meant to say 4GB on each GPU's

          •  

            @tnarg: yep $=4 :D actually, it is for my wife, who is a die-hard fan of Lenovo, that is the main reason behind that lol.
