[Dell] [WARMish] Dell G3 15 Laptop 10750h 6cores 12threads- $1029.99

https://www.dell.com/en-ca/shop/cty/pdp ... 500-laptop for other flash sales but this seems not too bad.

Use coupon code $50OFF$1000PC.

10th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-10750H
Windows 10 Home
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 Ti 4GB GDDR6
8GB DDR4-2933MHz, 2x4G
256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive

Downside is small ssd and some people find 250nits to be not bright enough for screen.

Even tho Dell classifies this as a gaming laptop I wouldn't buy it if you're looking for a gaming specific laptop. This will be really good for browsing the web and having a lot of tabs open or having a bunch of apps open. It will be quick and snappy for doing that even tho it only has 8 gigs of ram. If you're looking to game or do graphics intense workloads then I suggest looking for a higher tier laptop because this one will not meet your needs. You CAN play games but don't expect very high frame-rates. You can turn down graphical settings and have a moderate gaming experience but I will say it again, don't buy this if you're looking to use it as a gaming laptop.

Not that good of a deal IMO, especially compared to the G5 SE for 20$ more. If it had a 1660 Ti and/or more RAM and storage than maybe, but the 1650 is not a great card for a dedicated gaming laptop. The G5 SE has Ryzen 4000 and a significantly more powerful GPU.

There is one with a 1660ti but it is quite a bit more expensive and the CPU is the 10300 which is 4 cores instead of 6. I wish this had a 1660ti at this price tho. Keep in mind that a laptop with a 1660ti will run warmer and possibly louder and the battery will also drain quicker if not plugged in. For browsing and having multiple tabs open the system listed is quite good.

So sick of all the babies whining about intel laptop. It's like no one has any clue that in most of the performance brackets intel matches amd in laptops. Its only in the 4800/4900 that intel is beaten. If you're comparing the other offerings, there are comparable intel models Stop being blind sheep that can't do basic research into performance. You all saw that 1 LTT video with a 4800h and suddenly you're an expert on all amd and intel processors.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming up within 2 months.
Most likely they'll hold off on providing their best deals until then, to better inflate their "Regular Price".
I'd wait if not urgent

Intel CPUs are comparable to AMD in terms of performance yes. All the security vulnerabilities left a bad taste, generally from what I've seen AMD with comparable specs are still cheaper.

Real deal right here. The RX5600M will blow the GTX1650 away.

Intel version: Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX201 (2x2) Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5.1

AMD Version: 802.11ac 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth

So if wireless connectivity is super important to you, then the intel has the edge on that aspect since it is already has Wifi 6 and latest bluetooth. Too bad stuff like Wifi and SSD sizes are not easily customizable.
CPU speed, the average user will probably not notice a whole lot of difference between the 2. All depends on application, single thread, multi-thread, etc... but at the end it is about the same.
Graphics, AMD has the edge in terms of performance, even though the AMD CPU only has 12 PCIe lanes, compared to the 16 on the intel. But I doubt either of these cards can saturate the PCIe bus anyhow. However this performance boost does take about an extra 25% more power consumption (GPU-wise), so battery life may be shorter during the usage of apps with high gpu usage.

This is a hot deal and probably deserves its own thread.
The 5600M is between the GTX 1660ti and RTX 2060. To get that for under 1k (with unidays) along with Ryzen 3rd gen is a pretty insane.

The case is plastic and you probably need to upgrade the RAM and SSD afterwards though.

For storage, according to the specs of the G3 15 series, there is the option to also add a SATA 2.5" SSD (storage option) along with the existing 256GB NVMe drive. That is actually pretty good. the 256GB drive is plenty for the basic OS, documents and critical applications. For gaming, you can install a secondary drive, and ensure you configure your game engines to install your game libraries onto the second drive. With SSD prices dropping, you can easily pop in a nice 1TB SSD as second drive.
NOTE: I don;t know if the actual connectors are including in the laptop, or if you need any custom cable on this specific laptop (sometime dell (and others) use use custom cables to convert the sata data/pwr connectors from the drive, to some onboard proprietary connector.

I like the use of 2 drives, that way you can set up windows to do automatic backups of your main "documents" folder onto the second drive. Keeping them in sync so if anything ever happens to any of the disks, your critical documents are still safe. OS can be reinstalled, and games also. However your personal documents or schoolwork, would be painful to lose sometimes.

Personally, my laptop hierarchy of importance: GPU > Thermals > Screen = Processor > USB-C/Keyboard/Expandability. If this was your only computer I'd move screen up with thermals if you aren't intending on picking up a monitor.

If you are just comparing these two laptops, at this price, hands down the AMD G5 people are listing is the way to go. Though, there have been quite a few mentions about concerns with thermals with the G5 15 SE hitting 90C during gameplay. People hoping it's just a bios issue but I know I had to do the 99% maximum processor power plan on my 3900x to get IDLE temps 8-15c lower when I had it on the stock cooler. Not sure if that is applicable to laptop but my experience AMD has a "ya it works fine" kind of experience to it, you put up with the minor annoyances because it is literally a generational gap of technology.

But "lol intel, get ryzen" always feels like the most misguided chirp over a new generation of multi-core processor that has mostly work appeal and applaudable single/all core speed. I spent most of August looking at laptops and I skipped the 4800H for a 10750h because I didn't like the consistently higher thermals or performance dips (lower performance all around and 1% dips as a result of power starvation in high demanding games on 80% of the laptops I saw reviewed(here's one review comparing 1660ti to 5600m). Having an AMD PC at home I am fully on board with the value it brings but also because I can change out my cooling. But on a laptop there is only so much you can do and I have never worried about the speed of 7-zip or need to shave 15-20% time off of a 30 minute render.
