Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 17-5758
No more Aluminum! The predecessor had an aluminum lid, while the new Dell Inspiron 17-5758 is now mainly made of plastic. On the other hand, it features up-to-date Broadwell CPUs and a dedicated graphics card. Is this sufficient to make up for the poor connectivity?
That point aside, this is a very likable system that delivers exactly what many want in clean and uncluttered design. I’m not sure what the GeForce 920M adds, but almost everything else in here contributes to a very positive user experience.

Keeping in mind the price range of the Inspiron 5758, we are thrilled with some of the features it offers. The design isn’t special at all and it’s subjective on top of that, but the build quality presented here is good. Our only complaint is the top lid, that bends too easily under the smallest pressure. Also, the weight is acceptable, but we don’t recommend it for frequent travelers. The interior is the part that steals the show – nifty rubberized finish along with comfortable keyboard and flawless touchpad make the user experience nothing but valuable.

Model: The Dell Inspiron 17-5758-4753 is expected to meet the needs of consumers on a sophisticated desktop replacement. The unit comes with a nice strong and sturdy build quality and features a 17.3 inch HD+ (1600x900) Truelife display. Acers calls the color Theoretical Gray, Matte Metallic IMR. The Inspiron features a 5th generation Intel Core i7-5500U processor (4M Cache, up to 3.00 GHz), 8 GB 2 DIMM (2 x 4 GB) DDR3L 1600 Mhz, and the Intel HD Graphics 5500. The stock configuration for the storage comes with a 1 TB 5400 rpm SATA hard drive.
It features 802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.0, dual band 2.4 & 5 GHz for connectivity. On the right side there are two USB 2.0 ports, a 3.5 mm headphone/microphone combo, a tray load DVD drive (reads and writes DVD/CD) and a Kensington lock slot. The left side houses the power-in, an 10/100 RJ-45 Ethernet port, HDMI 1.4a, a USB 3.0 port, and a Media Card slot (SD, SDHC, SDXC). Compared to higher-end models, the Dell Inspiron 17-5758-4753 has two differences: It lacks a touchscreen, which might not be necessary anyway, and it only uses the Intel HD Graphics 5500. However, it all depends on what do you want to use this laptop for, whether it is just for everyday tasks or also for gaming.
The Dell Inspiron 17 5000 is a nice-looking desktop-replacement laptop that offers good productivity performance and decent battery life for a very affordable price. Dell’s Inspiron series used to aim at entry-level users who do not run resource-hungry applications, but the new Dell Inspiron aims to succeed with powerful and high-quality components. The notebook's lid is made of gunmetal-gray plastic with the Dell logo in silver. Lifting the lid reveals a 17.3-inch, 1920 × 1080 display surrounded by a thick bezel, an island-style keyboard, and a silver, plastic deck. At 6 pounds and 16.7 x 11 x 1 inches, the Inspiron is both larger and lighter than the competition. For example, the Dell Inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1 weighs 6.2 pounds and measures 16.2 x 10.9 x 0.9 inches. With its 1.2 millimeters of travel (1.5 to 2 mm is typical) and 74 grams of force required to press, the keyboard feels shallow. However, the 4.1 x 3.1-inch touchpad is nice and spacious and responds to Windows-10 gestures. A user can tap with three fingers to activate Cortana and swipe with ease with three fingers to show all open programs. The Inspiron 17 5000 appears to have a familiar Full-HD (1920 × 1080) IPS panel. As a result, the display has excellent viewing angles. It covers 94% of the sRGB color gamut, thus colors will appear vivid and vibrant. The display guarantees a pleasant multimedia experience thanks to the decent maximum brightness, wide sRGB coverage, high contrast ratio, and wide viewing angles.
As for the performance, the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 is equipped with an Intel Core i7-8550U, which is part of the new 8th-generation Kaby Lake Refresh family. With the latest alteration to the ULV (ultra-low voltage) processors, Intel doubles the core count from 2 to 4 and retains the so-called Hyper-Threading technology, keeping the same 14nm manufacturing process and the same 15W TDP. The chip also incorporates a newer Intel Gen-9.5 integrated graphics card called Intel UHD Graphics 620. For graphics, the laptop has an AMD Radeon 530, which is made for entry-level notebooks and can be used for general multimedia and light gaming. The memory setup consists of 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 2250 MHz that is connected to the graphics processor using a 64-bit interface. For storage, it has a 1TB HDD and a 128GB SSD. The RAM installed in this laptop consists of 8 GB of DDR4 at 2400 MHz. Due to the limited 3-cell, 42Wh charge and rather demanding Full-HD 17.3-inch IPS display, the battery life is definitely not the best. Still, it should get users at least a couple of hours away from the plug. On the left side of the laptop, users will find the power jack, Ethernet, HDMI output, a pair of USB-3.0 ports and a headphone jack. On the right side are a DVD drive, a USB-2.0 port, an SD-card reader, and a Noble lock slot.

NVIDIA GeForce 920M: Renamed GeForce 825M Kepler based graphics card (GK208) with sligthly higher clock speed.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products.
