Tuesday deals: a Dell laptop with a Core i7-8750H for $1000 and more

Howdy, folks! Let me tell you something about house floods: the water is often the least of your worries. You plug whatever spot it's coming through and proceed to bucket it out. What I've learned is that the post-op is way, way worse than the flood itself. Over the course of the past two weeks, I've spent untold hours with the after-flood logistics. I'd much rather just shovel water out for two days and be 100% done with this. Anyway, at least there's things that make me happy, like window-shopping sweet, juicy PC hardware. Here are the deals we have today.

  • Dell's gaming laptops are generally well-regarded, and we have one such specimen today for your perusal. The Dell G5 15 on display comes with a six-core Core i7-8750H processor, 16 GB of RAM, and a pretty powerful GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB Max-Q graphics card. Storage is handled by a combo setup with a 256-GB SSD plus a 1-TB hard drive. This kind of hardware package usually goes for north of $1500, but you can take this laptop home for just $999.99 from Rakuten with the checkout code DELL144.

  • 4K is the word of the day, and it's on two displays' spec sheets. The first is the Sceptre U275W-4000R. This monitor offers a 27″ IPS panel with a resolution of 3840×2160, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and maximum brightness of 250 cd/m². There are DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI inputs, and a pair of built-in speakers to boot. If you're wondering what's so special about this monitor, it's the price: an insanely-low $169.99 at Newegg with the promo code EMCPWRT32.

  • There's a chance that the monitor above simply isn't big enough for your plans. The LG 43UD79-B will happily fill that gap. This humongous IPS 4K display measures 43″ across. Its color gamut should cover 100% of sRGB, and the maximum brightness should reach 350 cd/m², an impressive value for a monitor this size. Accoutrements include four HDMI inputs, a DisplayPort, and USB Type-C connectivity. There are also built-in speakers and multi-picture modes. Newegg will ship you the massive box for $499.99 if you use the promo code EMCPWRT29.

  • Who's a fan of speedy CPUs? Gather 'round, sirs and madams. First up, the Ryzen 7 1800X. This chip offers eight Zen cores and sixteen threads and a single-core turbo clock of 4.0 GHz. It's a pretty badass piece of silicon, and it's selling for $224.99 at Newegg with the code EMCPWRT47.

  • Next up, an option for those looking for a mid-range processor with meaty integrated graphics: the Ryzen 5 2400G. This chip got a TR Editor's Choice award when we reviewed it thanks to its healthy combination of a Vega IGP and four Zen cores with a 3.9-GHz single-core turbo clock. As an added bonus, it comes with a Wraith Stealth cooler in the box. Yours for merely $149.99 from Amazon.

  • You thought we were done with monitors? Ha! There's yet another slab o' pixels to go over, the Acer CB271HU. This IPS display comes in a resolution of 2560×1440 and should offer 100% coverage of the sRGB color space. The maximum brightness is 350 cd/m², and the static contrast ratio is 1000:1. The display has a height, tilt, and swivel-adjustable stand, built-in speakers, and goes for just $229.99 at Newegg.

That's all for today, folks! There's a chance you're looking for something we haven't covered. If that's the case, you can help The Tech Report by using the following referral links when you're out shopping: not only do we have a partnership with Newegg and Amazon, but we also work with Best Buy, Adorama, RakutenWalmart, and Sam's Club.

    The 1060 MaxQ and real cooling on that laptop are way more unique than having an i7 under $1K.

    A Ryzen 5 box is showing as the image for the Ryzen 7 deal.

    I believe notebooks/desktops are truly now at parity with one another based on cost/performance.

      In some market segments and form-factors, sure.

      In others, NUCs are more expensive than cheap laptops, and gaming laptops are more expensive than DIY gaming desktops.

    The specs on that laptop CPU finally shame my Ivy Bridge-based Latitude.

    I’m in for 3 of the LG 43’s. All three costs just a little more than one of the Dell’s I usually buy. Will see about quality.

      Heh, derp, fixed. There’s just so many cores everywhere these days, one gets confused.

        Is it weird that I actually find it comforting when I see typos like that anymore, and then in the comments see someone point it out and the article writer respond that they fixed it while making a quick joke about said typo?

        Idk… kinda helps remind me there is a PERSON behind these articles and postings who will sometimes make mistakes but is trying the best they can. It is, ironically, one of my favorite things about this site.

          Oh trust me, there are people writing these things. Robots wouldn’t make half as many mistakes 😛

          Thanks for the kind words!
