Dell Inspiron 15 7577 Gaming Review

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 is a keen gaming weapon with a few rough edges.

Affordable price ; Powerful GPU ; Quick SSD ; Fairly quiet

Visibly poor display ; Flimsy touchpad ; Overly large, awkward size

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 with 4K display review

 

While its specifications look great on paper, this Inspiron is marred by mediocre performance and an unfortunate as-tested price.

Expert review by : Joshua Goldman (cnet.com)

Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 is an undeniable gaming laptop bargain

 

It'll still set you back around $1,000, but Dell's updated entry-level gaming laptop doesn't disappoint.

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 Laptop review: The discrete GPU is the star of the show

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming Laptop's GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q offers awesome bang for the buck.This sub-$1,000 gaming laptop gives you 1060-like performance

GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q is nearly as fast as standard GTX 1060 ; Yes, you can get 1080P performance for under $1,000

Average battery life ; Screen is bland and slightly dim

When we the previous Inspiron 15 7000 in May, we called it a “steal” with its quad-core chip and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU for $850. Half a year later, we have basically the same laptop, with a marginally better IPS panel and a more powerful GPU, for a...

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.

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: The budget gaming laptop to beat

 

Dell cuts a few corners to get you a very good GPU at a great price.

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...
