76% Dell Inspiron 17-5748 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Seventeen and having fun. The new Inspiron 17-5748 is a member of Dell's lower mid-range, multimedia laptops: Not as elegant as the XPS models, they still feature aluminum on the casing. We explain in this report why it is good for multimedia fans but barely suitable for gamers.

Of course, if we could, we'd tell you to hold out for a touch screen and SSD storage, too, but we realize that would mean wandering far away from the value aisle. In its good points, the Inspiron 17 5000 reminds us that there's no shame in an economical solution. But it also reminds us that you deserve better than rock bottom.

With the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Non-Touch, you get a lot of laptop for $450. Granted, its 17.3-inch screen won't display high-definition content at 1080p, but it displays 720p with aplomb and delivers vibrant colors. At this price you don't get a high-end processor and a blazing graphics solution, but you do get a fourth-generation Pentium CPU that can handle your multimedia tasks without a problem, and a nice feature set that includes a DVD burner, an HDMI output, a multi-SD card reader, decent speakers, and a webcam.

Comment

Model: The Dell Inspiron 17-5748 is a mid-range laptop that redefines productivity and fun. It may not be as premium as an XPS model but can deliver nevertheless. The black chassis with full black island-style keyboard looks professional and features an aluminium top cover with brush metal texturing. The design is kept classy with subtle curves at the corners and rear.

The Dell Inspiron 17-5748 is quite large and heavy side with 3.19 kg mainly because of its 17.3 inch display. The latter is a 16:9 TN LED panel with capacitive touchscreen and a glossy finish. The screen real estate makes of a perfect entertainment capable device. The Windows 8.1 laptop packs in an Intel Core i7-4510U processor clocked at 2 GHz with Intel HD Graphics 4400, 8 GB DDR3L RAM and NVIDIA GeForce 840M GPU with dedicated 2 GB DDR3 VRAM. The 1 TB 5400 rpm hard drive is a nice touch for users wanting to fill up on entertainment and media. Other features include a DVD drive, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 port, an SD card reader and a web cam. Battery life on the Dell Inspiron 17-5748 is decent with its 40Wh 4-cell Li-Ion battery.

Series:

A leading brand for laptops and computers in the world, Dell, designs and manufactures laptop in different categories to fulfill the computing requirements of different users around the world. The Dell Inspiron 17R constitutes one of the latest products from Dell – it is expected to be capable to meed the needs of consumers on a sophisticated desktop replacement laptop. A 17 inch display is the perfect size for those who prefer to use their laptop as a desktop replacement. While it’s actually made of plastic, they’ve successfully put a nice-looking brushed metal finish on its lid and keyboard tray. In today's desktop replacement market with a wide range of choices from low-end to high-end laptops, this laptop has a clear advantage – it offers a variety of hardware configurations. This laptop can be purchased with either Intel’s i3, i5 or i7 processor. Thus, it proves to be a better choice as consumers will get the best value for money with their purchase.

However, being a desktop replacement means that the battery life isn’t going to be great. Such as what are typically expected for a 17 inch laptop, this laptop doesn’t offer long battery life as well as portability since it is also bulky and quite heavy. Besides, its low quality display is another huge let down because the screen quality could be much better if it came with a full-HD display instead of the current 1,600 x 900 pixels display. It isn’t the laptop for those who want portability and ultimate gaming performance. But if you’re looking for a budget-friendly laptop for a desktop replacement with multimedia capabilities, the Dell Inspiron 17R is a great-value option.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4510U: Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.19 kg:

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.


Dell: Dell is a U.S. manufacturer (based in Texas) of computer hardware founded in 1984 and is one of the largest international manufacturers in terms of both market share and notebook models. Its product line includes desktops, notebooks, storage systems, monitors, servers, printers, consumer electronics and peripherals. Dell offers laptops that are suitable for various applications, such as business laptops, gaming laptops, ultra portables and workstations. Dell's business laptops from the Latitude and Precision series are an option for professional users and businesses.

In 2023, Dell had an approximate 17% market share of global PC sales, ranking #3 after Lenovo and HP.

For gaming enthusiasts, Dell's Alienware brand is for gaming notebooks.


74%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
