The 17-inch lineup of laptops are always thought to be bulky, heavy, not meant for carrying around. People prefer a smaller laptop with an external screen. Dell has answered to this query with its Inspiron 7000 series of laptops. The new Inspiron 17 7000 comes with a 2-in-1 functionality.
The 3 Kg 2-in-1 laptop is equipped with a Core i7 CPU and dedicated Nvidia GPU. The Inspiron 17 7000 is 412 mm wide and 277 mm deep, no surprises there. Though it takes a large space on the desk the build quality is second to none. The brushed aluminum chassis. There is a very narrow trim around the edge separates the stretch of silver. The 360O rotating screen hinge can be setup in laptop, tent, tablet and stand mode.
Currently, this Inspiron 17 comes in 2 models, 4 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD or 16 GB RAM and 1TB HHD and an additional 128 GB SSD. The 17.3 inch 1920×1080 pixels Truelife LED-Backlit touch-display is sharp and bright with a 127 ppi. Though the 13 mm on the side, 16 mm on top and 29 mm on bottom bezel don’t add up to the overall aesthetic of the laptop but it does help in switching modes.
The Inspiron 17 7000 has pros like Robust build, 360-degree hinge, loud and crisp sound etc. but it does have flaws such as the large and heavy size, cramped keyboard, less battery life and the most annoying moderate screen resolution.
