Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop review

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 the budget gaming laptop review

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is an entry-level gaming laptop with a 15.6-inch 4K screen that has a resolution of 1920×1080. It is operated by a Core i5 processor with windows 10 operating system and has 8 GB of RAM. The 15 7000 Dell Inspiron offers an SSD memory of 256 GB. The Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming is pretty subtle in nature as far as gaming laptops are concerned. Given the ‘edgy’ red and black color scheme, both practitioners and students will find comfort in their reworked looks compared with those in the Alienware range of Dell.

Display and Screen

This laptop offers a 15.6-inch display with a resolution of 1920×1080 and a high amount of details. The viewing angles of the IPS display make a significant difference. With the last one, you had to find a perfect balance and never, ever move. With little contrast and flat shades of colors, it was also quite washed out. There’s not much punch in color and contrast on the new screen, but it looks better than its predecessor. Viewing off-angle is much better, so at least you can move your head and tilt the screen without losing the image.

Build and Design

Coming to the design, the Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming laptop has a red-backlit keyboard with a proper-size Numberpad, and it feels comfortable to use it, and the Power button that serves as a fingerprint scanner. The Trackpad is decent, and it’s not that big, nor is it consistently responsive. Thankfully, the choice of port is less disingenuous.

In contrast to a single Thunderbolt 3 USB-C outlet, seasoned gamers and beginners can enjoy the availability of three conventional USB 3.1 ports.There is no indication of a glitzy, extraterrestrial mascot or RGB ‘ FX ‘ customizable. Someone who requires this kind of thing from their laptop should turn somewhere else.

Alternatively, the Inspiron 15 Gaming incorporates a matt black finish, with ‘ Beijing Red ‘ option for anyone particularly sensitive to the Dell-meets-Spider-Man: homecoming design team-up. That way, the unpretentious nature of the Inspiron 15 Gaming works for it. Dell also went beyond that to make the airflow vents look classy, and the model looks stylish.

Performance and Hardware

In the Cinebench graphics comparison, the older GTX 1050 Ti-equipped version could manage just 94 frames, but this time Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop could reach 96 frames-per-second. We used it to experience Bayonetta’s PC port, which was launched in the maximum settings last year without any frame drops, and also the new Far Cry Primal, in the configurations suggested by Nvidia’s GeForce. You can use Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming to run almost every title, which is launched on the Windows platform with a frame rate of 60 per second.

Relative to other conventional laptops, the non-gaming benchmarks scores are low. Due to the sluggish Intel Core i5 Processor and 8 GB ram, however, the results of the gaming test showed that Dell Inspiron 15 7000 could compete with laptops that cost significantly higher. Dell continues to offer 2.8GHz Core i7-7700HQ packages priced at $1,300, which also increases the RAM and includes a 1 TB hard drive storage at 5,400rpm.

For example, our tests show that the Gigabyte SabrePro earned 3,456 points in the graphically intensive 3DMark Time Spy, while the Razer Blade managed a towering 3,653. Meanwhile, at 3,151 points, the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop managed to prove its peculiarities. However, the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming’s Max-Q version here has beaten the 2016 model in almost every category.

Storage, Speakers and Battery life

We’re just as concerned about the lack of space in the Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming. As it currently stands, a mere 256 GB SSD for the typical gamer is nowhere near sufficient. We were alerted that our PC was running out of space after downloading a maximum of four titles, including Total War: Warhammer II and Middle Earth. We hesitate to recommend this particular system as it stands for Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming for more than just gaming. Interestingly, the cheapest gamer’s choice is the 128 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD version.

The speaker’s sound quality on the Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming is mediocre, which is accounting for a decent sound quality experience. Without being too loud and a considerable amount of bass, they had sufficient clarity for music and games to give more heft to gunshots and blasts.

There are two aspects across all the upgrades from previous iterations where the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop still struggles, which include battery life and storage capacity. Especially on this latest Inspiron in comparison to the 74Whr power pack inside the earlier models, the suspect here is undoubtedly the 56Whr battery underneath this laptop. In the PCMark 8 battery life comparison, this laptop lasted 4 hours and 31 minutes, down from its 5-hour and 51-minute output from its predecessor.

Conclusion

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gamer has it all. For gamers, a 7th generation Intel Core i5 Processor ‘HQ’ series and a GTX 1060 should be appropriate. Nevertheless, its shortcomings set a troubling precedent for future refreshments of Inspiron 15 Gaming laptop. It is by no way insufficient – there is still the performance. You can, of course, spend two to three times more than this and get better performance, a better display, and a better keyboard and touchpad.

The improved design and functionality, especially the new display, make suggestions much simpler. It’s a pretty sweet deal if you can’t or don’t want to break a $1,000 mark. It could be an excellent choice for the College students who wish to see a sophisticated look than most other gaming laptops could use the Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop.
