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 2-in-1 Review

 

With the market for 2-in-1s growing, you can now find devices that convert from laptops to tablets in a variety of shapes and sizes, including 15-inch convertibles. Even if you don't want to turn a system that weighs over 4.5 pounds into a slate, you...

Premium 2-in-1 design; Accurate touch screen; Above-average battery life; Low starting price

Relatively dull screen; Uncomfortable keyboard

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a 2-in-1 that offers solid performance in a premium soft-touch design, but its screen isn't good enough for the 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 (7537)

 

The touch-screen Dell Inspiron 15 (7537) ultrabook is aimed at power users who absolutely need premium components for heavy multitasking.

Large touch screen. Numeric keypad. Full set of I/O ports. 16GB of memory. Speedy boot time

Flimsy screen hinge. Keyboard takes time to master. No 5GHz Wi-Fi

The Dell Inspiron 15 (7537) ($1,149 as tested) is a high-end ultrabook with a premium aluminum and glass construction. It's worth considering if you need discrete graphics for multimedia creation or moderate gameplay. While it is a solid power user's...

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Review

 

Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 series is a solid alternative for users who want good graphics and processing power but can't afford a solid state drive in their Ultrabook.

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 XPS 15, the price tag is much more inviting as well, though it lacks the XPS’s amazing screen and SSD....

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 review: A discrete GPU makes it better at play than work

 

This 15-inch UltraBook is a general-purpose machine with some special powers. But its keyboard and chassis quality might disappoint you.

All-aluminum upper shell ; Vivid display ; Very good gaming performance ; Wi-Fi limited to 802.11n

Mediocre input ergonomics ; Limbo-riffic chassis exhibits too much flex

Dell's upscale 15-inch Ultrabook plays a good game, but its input ergonomics are subpar and it flexes in all the wrong places.

Dell Inspiron 15 7537 Review

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 7537 packs Nvidia graphics and a crisp 1080p touch screen inside an attractive aluminum chassis.

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.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 4K is the more affordable counterpart to the Dell XPS 15. Like the XPS, you get a classy aluminum chassis with a matte black keyboard rest, an excellent backlit keyboard and now with the 4K UHD model, an optional super high...

Lovely design, quality chassis materials with a premium feel. High resolution display good for photo and video editing

Our 4K display model bumps close to the XPS 15's price. ULV Ultrabook CPU fine for the $700 model, not impressive on the $1,449 4K model

The lower end models offer great build quality and good value for the price. The high end $1,449 UHD 4K model with SSD and 16 gigs of RAM used for this review isn't as great a value when you can get more powerful laptops at that price. Still, it has a...
