Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Laptop -FNCWSBB0013B

 

I've never said that about a laptop before, but the Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 series is truly exceptional. For just $750, these 13- and 15-inch laptops don't merely punch above their price bracket, they do it without removing any of the features you'd...

The Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 comes with all the trimmings -- a slim metal chassis, backflipping touchscreen, speedy solid state drive and accurate touchpad -- for hundreds less than you'd expect. A face-recognizing camera, rare for any laptop, is...

The glossy touchscreen creates distracting reflections, and a poorly-placed power button is easy to press by accident. Uninspired design, heavier than competing laptops and battery life is slightly below average.

Whether you need a 13-inch portable or a 15-inch workhorse, the Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 offers unheard-of value for money. You can invest in an external battery pack to extend its battery life.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 ( DNCWPW5724S)

 

The new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is my college laptop on steroids. Starting at just $800 (£749, AU$1,699), it's a cheap 15-inch laptop that can run any game on the market. And, just like my old notebook, it's a clunker with an utterly forgettable design....

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 will play any PC game you want, without having to spend a ton of money to get that performance.

It's a thick, heavy, ugly black slab with mediocre battery life. And a fingerprint magnet, too. You'll want to pay extra for a solid-state drive to avoid annoying stutter.

That boring black obelisk look notwithstanding, the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a great PC for gaming on the cheap.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (2016) review:

 

The first laptop I ever bought with my own money was a Dell Inspiron. It was big, ugly, and exactly what I needed at the time -- a cheap computer with just enough processing power to play the latest Half-Life game.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Review

 

If you prefer a larger laptop and still want the benefits that a 2-in-1's touch screen and 360-degree hinge offer, the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is aimed squarely at you. For $750 ($549 to start), you get an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD...

Good value, attractive design; strong performance

Uncomfortable keyboard; Relatively dim screen; Dark webcam images

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is an attractive 15-inch 2-in-1 with strong performance for the price, but it suffers from a shallow keyboard and dim display.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (Late 2015) review

 

Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 proves a jack of all trades isn't always a master of none.

This year’s Dell Inspiron 15 7000 shows that no laptop is without its compromises. The display is unsatisfactory, the build is flimsy in some places, and the mechanical hard drive leaves much to be desired, but ultimately these corners are the right...

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (Late 2015) Review

 

Dude, this is a Dell I wouldn't mind getting. The company's latest take on its Inspiron line of laptops, the Inspiron 15 7000 Series ($799) is, in a word, badass. Dell has gone for a sultry, more adult look that's sure to turn heads. But more than...

Sleek and elegant chassis; Very long battery life; Solid performance and graphics; Impressive speakers

Keys could use more travel; Below-average screen brightness; Somewhat heavy for 15-incher

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series offers scintillating good looks with solid graphics performance and good battery life.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 with 4K display review

 

While its specifications look great on paper, this Inspiron is marred by mediocre performance and an unfortunate as-tested price.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (2015) Review

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 has made the jump to 4K. Dell's 15-inch premium laptop is now available with a stunningly crisp 3840 x 2160-pixel screen, a 5th- Generation Intel Core i7 processor and an optional AMD graphics chip, giving you more power and...

Sharp 4K touch screen; Luxurious design; Loud audio

Display not very bright; Jumpy cursor; Below-average battery life

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 offers a 4K touch screen and robust speakers in a luxurious design, but it doesn't offer enough endurance or oomph for the money.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Review

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series is a jack-of-all-trades with an i7 processor, NVIDIA graphics, loads of RAM and a large hard drive space. Is this the right choice for your home PC needs? Read on to find out.

Powerful multitasker ; Good HD display ; Solid aluminum build

Poor keyboard, trackpad and layout ; Slow boot and launch times ; Heavy for an Ultrabook

Featuring solid performance in an even more solid body, the Inspiron 15 is an appealing computer technically. For half the price of a comparable

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Review: Great Performance At A Reasonable Price

 

When shopping for a laptop nowadays, there are many choices from the ultra-portable to the higher end gaming performance systems. Our Dell Inspiron 15 7000 review takes a look at a more middle of the road option, and finds out if it can offer decent...

Great performance, sound, and battery life. Nice design, comfortable to use

Some minor performance lag issues in Windows 10 due to the Hybrid Hard Drive (performance was fine while in apps/games). While our review unit didn't feature an SSD drive or touchscreen, those options are available

If you're looking for a mid-range laptop with a sleek design, powerful performance, decent battery life, and is comfortable to use, you should take a look at Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 series.
