[Dell] Vostro 7000 i5-10400/GTX1650/15.6 FHD/8GB/256GB $925

For those looking for a thin and light laptop with a decent GPU, Dell has the Vostro 7000 on sale again but in the i5 variant this time. Price on the website is $1139 but use coupon code SAVE100SBAFFFY21Q3 to take $100 off and stack a newsletter sign up code from dell-dell-business-15-off-email-signup- ... b-2389715/ to bring it down to $925

This seems to be very similar to that popular Inspiron 5000 AMD unit but with Intel instead of AMD and a GTX1650

Here's a couple of key points:
-Aluminum build
-Slightly under 4lbs
-USB C with charging
-Full fat GTX1650 - been playing Star Wars Fallen Order on it with 1080p high settings no issue
-Fingerprint sensor
-Only screen available is the higher-end one from Inspiron - 300nits 100% sRGB (confirmed with HDR and Dolby Vision per my testing)
-“4 sided narrow bezel”
-Extra RAM slot (8gb soldered) and 2nd SSD bay
-HDMI 2.0 with 4K/60 vs HDMI 1.4 in the Inspiron
-Yes, the i5 10400H is kind of lame but still performs similarly to 4500U, except at much higher TDP...

I received my i7 version (purchased for $1100) recently, let me know if you folks have any questions.

Price is great... But 15" is too big for me.

Cant find it on the site. And RFD breaks the links.

Actually I see it now. Still 8gb ram and 256gb storage :/

i wouldn't call this hot more lukewarm, once you factor in the cost of another 8gb of ram and more storage (which you need if you're planning on gaming or doing workstation stuff) you're probably at ~$1100.

I think people are downvoting because it's not ryzen. The screen is way better in this case (HDR + 300nits) and the 1650 should be way better than the iGPU in the AMD anyway. The only downside is the fewer CPU cores. If you're not multitasking like crazy, are the fewer cores a big deal right now?

I think people are downvoting it because the price is $1,100 and not what OP listed. Plus it's only 8GB RAM. You can find 16GB at the same price or less.

I looked at TUF and Dell G3 before deciding but they’re all plastic and about 1lb heavier. Also even though the screens may be high refresh, they have poor colour and brightness.

To me this should be viewed as a budget XPS 15 or X1 Carbon rather than a gaming machine.

And how did you test for these? There is no other indication that this is a HDR display. Your own post says 300 nits and the Dell website says 8 bit, both of which seem to confirm that this is a non-HDR display.
