Dell Inspiron 15 7000 ( DNCWPW5716H)


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 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 (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.
