If you're gaming on a budget, you can't do much better than the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop. Priced at $849, it appeals to the pinch-a-penny-make-Lincoln-cry aspect of my personality, while appeasing most of my demanding gamer sensibilities and delivering a battery life that has to been seen to be believed. Plus, that Hibiscus Red is just plain purty.

Model: Who says you can’t game on a budget and still have eye candy pixels without compromising. Dell is certainly proving that it is possible with the introduction of the Inspiron 15 7000. It is powered by an Intel Core i5-7300HQ, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of ultra-fast NVMe SSD. Its main attraction is the Nvidia Geforce 1050Ti, which is equivalent to Nvidia’s prior top 2 dog in the 900 series, the Geforce 970M. The latter is still a popular GPU, which is able to deliver eye candy performance; only this time around it can be had for a fraction of the cost. This means most modern games should be able to maintain a solid FPS of 45~50 on high to possibly even ultra-settings. Moving on to the chassis design Dell has implicitly designed the Inspiron 15 7000 to look like a gaming device but not too fancy or gaudy like its Alienware lineup, which is sort of a plus since the latter is a head turner for the wrong occasions. At least for the more serious users who like to game on the side, it is still be able to look professional without standing out unnecessarily. Naturally in order to keep costs down but maintaining performance, Dell has opted to go with a plastic based chassis, which isn’t to say it’s bad, overall the chassis still remains quite solid to the touch with minimal flex. In terms of IO, the Inspiron 15 7000 is equipped with 3 USB 3.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, your regular audio jack and a card reader. Disappointingly, there are no USB type C ports, which are a must for a device in 2017 these days. Weight-wise the Inspiron 15 7000 is a little on the heavy side when compared to its other competitors out there. When combined with its power adapter, it is most definitely tipping the scales past 3 kilos. This means you had better had a good computer back bag if you don’t want to strain your shoulders while moving it around.
Next on the list would be its display. It is a TN based FHD panel, this is a good example of getting what you paid for, while the display isn’t that fantastic it still remains reasonably palatable. However, if you’re a user who might also be interested in some content creation, you should look elsewhere because the panel was only able to score a meager sRGB rating of 67 %. However, it should be noted that Dell offers an optional IPS panel, which, however, might break the price to performance barrier which this notebook is squarely aimed at with its base model. Over to the Inspiron 15 7000 aural capabilities its included speaker and subwoofer were able to produce a solid audio quality in both the mids and highs, which is to say at least Dell has decided not to skimp on the audio department. However, should the user so desire audio can be further enhanced with the provided MaxxAudio Pro software solution. Dell has made a good choice to keep the keyboard simple even though this notebook is targeted at gamers, while Gigabyte or MSI provide dedicated macro keys for their designs sometimes the mantra “simple is best” rings true; after all Dell has a price cap to watch for.
With a key travel distance of 1.5 mm, the keyboard remains comfortable to type on although the keys tend to be on the heavier side when it comes to actuation force required. But as with keyboards this is highly subjective depending on the user. As for the touchpad, manufacturers tends to opt for a clickpad and touchpad combo these days. This can take some getting used to since without dedicated click buttons miss clicks can occur. Nonetheless, the integrated pad is quite spacious to use and even more so for a notebook of this size While there are some metrics that do not apply to gaming notebooks it seems like the Inspiron 15 7000 has managed to impress with its battery life scoring a whopping 11 hours and 23 minutes on Wi-Fi, which is quite unheard of when it comes to gaming notebooks since they tend to be on the power-hungry side. However, it should be noted here that this only applies to the TN panel based model as the IPS based model was only able to score 8 hours and 34 minutes. If you’re on a budget but still want to game with high fidelity graphics you can’t really go wrong with the Inspiron 15 7000, users just need to tune their expectations accordingly when it comes to wants and needs.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
