Dell Inspiron 17 7778 Convertible Review


Gigantic convertible. A 17-inch convertible? Why not? Anyone preferring the stationary use of Windows 10 in tablet mode should be absolutely happy with this somewhat unusual combination. However, the Inspiron also does a good job as a conventional...

different modes possible (tablet, stand, etc.) ; nice surfaces ; solid, very well-built casing ; few yet well positioned interfaces ; very good keyboard ; bright, high-contrast panel ; GDDR5 version of the 940MX ; quiet ; very long battery life

keyboard down in tablet mode ; not ideal hinges ; weak card reader performance ; no maintenance hatch ; spongy keyboard ; touchscreen's gliding traits not always ideal ; very limited outdoor use ; GPU throttles clearly during permanent load

Dell's new Inspiron 17 7778 2-in-1 is undoubtedly a somewhat exotic convertible, whose mobility aspects will not be as important as in smaller convertibles purely due to its size and weight. But that is not a drawback since the additional modes typical...

Dell Inspiron 17 7773 review – a successor to the Inspiron 17 7779 with a brand new hardware… and price


After the Inspiron 17 7779 review, we still can't think of a reason why would anyone opt for a 17-inch convertible but obviously there's a market for that as well. Probably the combinat…

Good build quality;Good input devices;High-quality IPS display – wide sRGB coverage, high contrast, bright;Long battery life

Limited I/O for a 17-inch device;Not the most practical 2-in-1 – hefty and big chassis, wobbly screen;Pricey;The screen uses aggressive PWM from 0 to 99% (our Health-Guard profile fixes that)

Dell Inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1 review: Too much to pay for mechanical storage


This huge convertible laptop is an interesting idea, but it urgently needs an SSD – and that wrecks the budget

Spacious keyboard and touchpad ; Most connectivity needs covered

Expensive ; Too large

If you want a big-screen computer for a mostly desktop-bound role there are things to like about the Inspiron 17 2-in-1. But for a slick Windows experience, you should buy the SSD-equipped model – which pushes the price up even further to £892.

Dell Inspiron 17 review


This sturdy desktop replacement provides plenty of power and a 17.3in screen at a very low price

If you're after a home laptop with a large screen and don't plan on taking it around with you, the Dell Inspiron 17 is a good buy for £450. It's fairly fast, can play some modern games and even has surprisingly good battery life, lasting seven hours...

It's beyond what I expected! I'm blown away by the speed and the fact that it has a touch screen and I didn't even realize it. Lol.

Very disappointing


This is my 3rd Dell laptop, so would have thought that purchasing another laptop from Dell was a fairly safe option. However I am extremely unimpressed with the laptop. It has difficulty shutting down, updating and is extremely slow. Also, the touch...
