Review Dell Inspiron 17R-SE-7720 Notebook

Robust, elegant case; 2.1 sound system from Skullcandy; Pleasant input devices; Solid multimedia performance; Optional backlit keyboard

Weight; Battery Life; No SSD in the configurator

If Dell's Inspiron 17R SE is interesting in this configuration, then having a look at Samsung's 550P7C-S02 and MSI's GE70-i789W7H might be a good idea. Another alternative to the Asus' N76VZ-V2G-T1011V.

Dell Inspiron 17R SE may not impress others, but it does its job


The ; has a quad-core Core i7 processor, decent graphics, and a big 1080p screen.

The thick, inelegant body won't impress anyone. For the money, I'd rather have a high-end GPU and midlevel CPU than the other way around.

Dell's Inspiron 17R SE packs reasonably high-end parts into a budget-feeling chassis, saving a few hundred dollars or more over similarly configured laptops.

Dell Inspiron 17R SE 17in Ivy Bridge notebook review


I'm currently mourning the demise of the 18-inch Dell XPS that I've been using as a TV/DVD player in my bedroom for the last five years. Hardly anyone seems to make 18-inch laptops anymore, but Dell has come up with a good alternative in the form of...

The battery life is underwhelming, but that’s the only real weakness in the Inspiron 17R SE. Its strong performance and large, attractive screen enable it to handle a wide range of tasks. Certainly, it will be a good choice for anyone that needs a...

Initial impressions


I've been using this notebook for a day. Initial impressions: HEAVY - I like the heavy sturdy feel to the build. Not a lot of flex and as I intend to use this as a desktop replacement, weight is not an issue. Upgradable - Went into the bios after...

This is not a review.


Recently Dell has upgraded the screen to FHD i.e 1920x1080p display and some other components; they have also increased the price. So for people who need a 17" laptop, this is a bargain as you can't get this model from Dell.

Its more of a query


No doubt this a very good machine. The price quoted on the flipkart site is good and economical than the price quoted on dell website, but I found some difference in the hardware. Flipkart shows that system memory is only 4GB. The resolution is only...

An Awesome Beast


The first thing you notice once you have got this is that,it is HUGE!!! I had a 15" screen prior to this,so was stunned by the size. So this is not for someone who wants much portability also I don't think you could use this on your lap for long. Pros:...
