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 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.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1

 

Convertible laptops -- they're not just a gimmick anymore. Now that nearly all of the major laptop manufacturers have one or two convertible notebooks in their catalogs (most of which do the same four or five modes), your choice comes down to price and...

Attractive, versatile design; Solid performance and graphics; Above-average battery life

Stiff, uncomfortable keyboard; Dim, dull display

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 offers good performance and nearly 7 hours of battery life in a versatile design.

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 (Early 2016)

 

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...

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...
