Dell Inspiron 15 7000 GTX 960MCurrent Coupon: poe200INSP15 ($200 off) and there are some 7559 models available for $750-$800 (before the discount)

The 7559 refurbished version now becoming available, via eBay and Dell Home Outlet, for around $550-$800. The configurations vary, especially from Dell Outlet. You can read the description of the New 7559 deal here and you can read the linked reviews, but in general, it is a good gaming laptop with an IPS display, relatively good thermals and GTX 960M gaming performance for a very good price. You can find a refurbished 7559 for $650 with 1TB SSHD from eBay (check the link!) which is an excellent deal, because of the performance/price ratio, plus I think it won’t be hard to resell it in half a year when new laptops come out.

About eBay via Dell Outlet – Dell Home Outlet sometime has very good discounts and coupons and if you can catch a good configuration then you can get lower prices that those from eBay, even including tax, but it takes more time and focus and some will prefer to spend another $50 and just get it from eBay. I’d say that if you want the I7 version, with the 3840×2160 display (which, from what I read, isn’t great) and an SSD+HDD solution included, Dell Outlet is probably a better way to go, but just check it from time to time, to see what coupons are available (currently, 33% off).

So, bottom line, a good laptop, refurbished are fine, with Dell official warranty, and if you want a gaming laptop now, this is a good option to consider.

    Hi Junky,

    This is a really helpful recommendation 🙂 However, I’m a little bit confused when it comes to what games require what. I simply want to know if next generation games would run on this (by that I mean the upcoming Mass Effect 4, Uncharted 4, Overwatch etc etc). If you could answer that question id be most grateful. thanks!

    • Hi Vanessa!

      1. Indeed, the recommendation part needs a serious improvement, also in the form of what can do what and how well
      2. Generally, a GTX 960M will run most heavy games on at least medium or medium-high graphics settings at 1080p
      3. I think it’s better to get a very cheap GTX 960M laptop right now and not invest a lot more for a 965M or 970M unless you can find a really good deal. Then, after a year, resell it
      4. OR, if you can wait, then wait for the new models that should be available in few months

      • Vanessa Benoit

        Thanks! That thoroughly answers my questions. 🙂 appreciate it!

        • great! glad you’re appreciating

    Hey, Junky; I was wondering if the Dell Insprion 7559 would be great for playing League of Legends. And also, if there would be any better priced laptops that would play League well on ultra settings.

    (Also wondering about the coupon, as I managed to find a $689 Laptop in the outlet, but your coupon didn’t work; and the total cost with tax was over $750)

    • Sasuke! the coupons are changing all the time – you should check Dell Home Outlet for new ones
      And yes, any laptop with a GTX 960M would be great for LoL

      Currently, if you can find laptops with GTX 960M and even a GTX 950M for less than $700 it would be great

      • Sasuke Uchiha

        Thanks Junky! That helps a lot 🙂

    • Your name reminded me the movie “Ponyo” though it’s not the same one (-:

      • Sasuke Uchiha

        Haha. I made this DISQUS account when I was 13 years old; it’s a character from a show called Naruto xP

  • Puppet H

    I’m so tempted to get this but I’m waiting to spend on the ASUS ROG G752V since it has Thunderbolt 3 or wait longer for the AMD Zen APU laptops to cut cost. I still have my ASUS N56DP-DH11 3 years now. I’m pro-ASUS cause of design and performance but this Dell is freaking tempting.

    • You can be sure there will be better deals in the future!
      ZEN seems to be available only not before September-October this year, in practice, no?
      In the meanwhile, you can read some books!

    Hey Junky,
    Finally decided on getting this laptop. Especially with the significant savings from Refurb.

    Are you seeing that price from Dell’s outlet site?

    I see the 600-800 range on eBay – but on Dell’s site it’s actually more expensive vs. the non outlet site:

    http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineSales/Online/SecondaryInventorySearch.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dfh&cs=22&key=h8mzvZMTkl6BuJXpr7rYxCFy2%2bdu8bZt&puid=5e206f12

    Is it just a matter of checking a few times a day until you get lucky and get it for the same price as Ebay?

    • Hi Rob!

      Please check the link again (changed it, not sure if the previous one was correct) – it leads to the Dell Home Outlet page and sometimes you’ll see there coupons and discounts. Usually Dell has nice coupons mo more than every 2-3 weeks (like 30-35% for Latitude laptops, around the same for some others), so yes, just keep an eye.
      Also, these discounts, from my experience, are not flash coupons, they usually go for 1-3 days (24-72 hours), at least, so no need to spend your life and refresh Dell’s site

    • They have a new coupon now.. 30% off, but you’ll have to catch a 7559 for a good price

      • Rob Romanowski

        Yep I saw the 30% off coupon, but only 1 laptop and it was gone when I checked later on that day.

        I’m checking now – no options at all…

        I’ll keep waiting.

        So even if the price is around 900 – the 30% off coupon is all I need? That will take it to the 650-700 range like eBay prices?

        • I think it’s all you need, although there is probably some tax
