Dell Inspiron 15 7558 Convertible Review


A fresh take. Dell's Inspiron 15 7558 continues the manufacturer's expansion of the Inspiron line into more premium territory, this time with a 2-in-1 convertible design (similar to Lenovo's smaller Yoga machines). Can it inspire us with its rebalanced...

Sleek casing and overall good build quality, IPS 1080p screen for affordable prices in lower-end configurations, Great keyboard with good feedback in spite of a short stroke, Good touchpad with comfortably large roughened surface, Fast solid-state...

Oversized convertible form factor provides few practical benefits, No dedicated GPU options, Only one RAM slot (no dual-channel configuration possible), Case temperatures can be bothersome under load due to hot spots, Audible electrical noise while...

The Inspiron 15 7558 retreats from the graphics-heavy, RAM-packing philosophy of its predecessors and moves instead in the direction of all-round versatility and novelty. The partially metal casing is still impressive for its class (though not...

Review Dell Inspiron 15-7537 Notebook


Long-lasting all-rounder. An economic Core i7 processor and a dedicated Nvidia GPU topped with a lot of storage and wrapped up in an elegant aluminum casing - this is the recipe for a versatile and high-performance multimedia laptop. But is it enough...

Good build quality; 4 USB 3.0 ports; Backlit keyboard; High-quality Full HD screen; Generous storage capacity; High graphics power; Low temperature development; Very long battery runtime

Glare-type screen; Low Wi-Fi range; Only 12 month warranty; No mSATA/M.2 slot; Steep price

Comparable contenders would be: Samsung ATIV Book 8, Acer Aspire V7-582PG, Asus N550JV, VivoBook S551LB, and Toshiba Satellite P50.

Dell Inspiron 15 7559 Notebook Review


Maintenance miracle. Unfortunately, this is pretty rare nowadays: The maintenance hatch, which is very easy to remove, allows access to all major components of the new multimedia notebook from Dell. Another highlight is the high-resolution 4K...

stylish chassis, convenient surfaces, no obvious build quality issues, great maintainability, good touchpad, but limited functionality, illuminated keyboard, 4K IPS display with touch support, very good gaming and application performance

not very torsion-resistant, loud creaking when you try to twist it, no optical drive, mediocre keyboard, touch not always useful, very glossy screen, suboptimal Turbo utilization, sometimes annoying fan control, (too) high power consumption under load

We have already mentioned that the pretty good initial impression of the rather expensive Dell Inspiron 15 7559 (RRP: 1299 Euros/~$1376) suffered a bit during our review. The touchpad, which is actually very good, revealed a build quality issue, and...

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 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 15-7559 Review: The Dark Side Awakens


The latest iteration of the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series is perhaps Dell's best multi-purpose 15-inch notebook designed to meet the needs of the widest possible variety of customers. This is a true desktop replacement or primary computer thanks to a...

Excellent gaming performance for the money ; Good Full HD display ; Nice keyboard

Slow boot and application launch times ; Plastic construction ; A bit too heavy

If you’ve read the rest of this review then you should know by now that the Inspiron 15-7559 delivers fantastic bang for your bucks. For several hundred dollars less than the ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501JW or the Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro, you can get your...

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.
