Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7577 (i5-7300HQ, GTX 1060 Max-Q) Laptop Review

 

Max-Q done right. Nvidia's Max-Q technology launched for an absurdly high price of $3000+ USD. Not five months later, users can now own that same technology for under $900 USD. This latest Inspiron is perhaps the best example of Max-Q for the masses.

silent during very low loads; quieter than other gaming notebooks ; relatively cool core temperatures when gaming ; GTX 1060 Max-Q standard across all SKUs ; no CPU or GPU throttling when on mains ; IPS now standard across all SKUs ; 2x storage; M.2...

no G-Sync or 5 ms refresh rate options; forced Optimus ; performance throttling if running on batteries ; no more dedicated subwoofer; weaker bass ; keyboard backlight is optional, not standard ; smaller battery capacity than Inspiron 7567 ; weak...

The Inspiron 7577 is an amazing gaming system for the price all thanks to its strong base, accessible internals, and GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU. The GPU swap alone has made the machine run quieter and faster and more efficiently than all SKUs of the Inspiron...

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7567 Gaming Notebook Review

 

Gaming companion with stamina. Dell has equipped the Inspiron 15 7000 gaming series with cutting-edge hardware and not only convinces us in terms of performance but also surprises us with an exemplary battery life. We are impressed - but not with the...

system performance ; gaming performance ; battery runtime ; low temperature ; system noise in idle mode

poor contrast ; very bluish display ; small arrow keys ; performance of the SD-card reader ; few interfaces ; no USB Type-C

A gaming notebook for everyday life. Dell's new Inspiron 15 of the 7000 series proved that it has a right to exist in the gaming-notebook world. First of all, it has a well-made case, which allows end-user maintenance. However, there are only a few...

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Laptop review

 

If the words "budget gaming laptop" still bring to mind images of big, bulky laptops that are as short on performance and features as they are on battery life, the new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 should be a pleasant surprise.

The updated Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop has better graphics and display, a Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port, 2x2 802.11ac wireless and a fingerprint reader built into the power button -- all without going over $1,000.

While battery life is good, it's noticeably shorter than its predecessor. The base configuration is short on storage.

Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop was already a favorite for the money and its updated design and features only sweeten the deal.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming

 

A VR-ready gaming rig can put a hole in your pocket, but it doesn't have to. The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop, with its starting price of $950, is light on the wallet and offers solid performance for the price. This laptop's Nvidia GeForce GTX...

Affordable, especially with a 1060 GPU; Long-lasting battery life

Uncomfortable keyboard; Display isn't vivid

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a long-lasting laptop that's affordable for a gaming notebook, but its display needs work and its keyboard is uncomfortable.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (Late 2017) hands-on review

 

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop remains affordable, but looks to push past its budget roots.

New specs aim to (better) compete with high-end gaming laptops ; New color scheme is attractive, yet utilitarian ; “Silky plastic” material adds upscale design ; IPS display panel improves over prior model

Battery is much smaller than before ; Base price is up $200

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 review: A gaming laptop at a decidedly non-gaming price

 

It's not the most powerful gaming laptop ever made, but a quad-core i5 and a 1050 for only $850? That's a steal of a price.

Attractive, understated chassis ; Decent performance for a bargain price ; Phenomenal battery life (for a gaming machine)

Ugly screen ; Not very future-proof

That price is so, excellent though. I am really and truly amazed at the gaming performance you can get from a sub-$1,000 laptop nowadays, and doubly amazed that this machine comes from Dell.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 review

 

Nobody ever said PC gaming was an inexpensive hobby. A really solid gaming laptop can set you back $2,000 or more, and some high-end models easily double that. That's about £1,635 or AU$2,640. The best-case scenario is still usually $1,200 or more for...

An inexpensive way to get a very decent graphics card for PC gaming. The reworked design is fun and has a premium look and feel.

Investing in the GPU requires some cut corners, including a washed-out display and annoying touch pad.

This sharp-looking gaming laptop packs in graphics power, but spending a bit more might be a wiser long-term investment.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming (7567)

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming can play modern titles in full HD, boasts amazing battery life, and is priced very aggressively. It's difficult to find a better deal in a budget gaming laptop.

Very affordable for a gaming laptop. Smooth 1080p gaming performance. 11-hour battery life. Attractive design.

Subpar display. Not a lot of storage as configured.

While the Inspiron 15's components are far from the most powerful around, its combination of build quality, performance, and battery life sets a new bar. It's sleek, it offers a full array of ports, and it packs the newest graphics technology, all...

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.
