79.7% Dell Inspiron 17-5770-0357 (8250U, SSD, HDD, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
A multimedia device with flaws. The Inspiron 17 is based on Intel's most recent generation of processors. However, customers should pay attention to the configuration because the versatility of a multimedia device is very limited without a dedicated graphics card.

Model: The Dell Inspiron 17 5770-0357 is a nice-looking desktop-replacement laptop which offers good productivity performance and decent battery life for a very affordable price. As a great plus, it is based on powerful quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core processors, as opposed to previous-generation dual-core chips. The weight of the Dell Inspiron 17 is 2.8 kg, which is quite normal for a 17-inch laptop. The profile is 0.9-inch (2.29 cm) thick. The notebook's lid is made of gunmetal-gray plastic with the Dell logo in silver. Lifting the lid reveals a 17.3-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 display surrounded by a thick bezel, an island-style number pad, and a silver, plastic deck. In the center of the platinum silver-colored chassis is a full-size keyboard with numeric pad and optional backlight. The touchpad is a single-piece one, meaning it has click buttons integrated into the surface. As for hardware specification, it has an 8th generation Intel Core i5-8250U processor, 8 GB of DDR4 2400 MHz RAM, a 1 TB 5400 rpm SATA hard drive coupled with 8 GB SSD, and an Intel Graphics with shared graphics memory. The quad-core update brings a good performance boost, which is noticeable in computing-intensive tasks like music and video production or photography editing. As for gaming, the notebook’s Intel integrated graphics is a basic game rendering solution. A user can use it only for non-demanding games. For storage, it has the basic one, which is a standard 1-Terabyte hard disk drive.

Having an FHD display resolution is a good selling point of the Dell Inspiron 15 5570. The same applies to optional touch-screen support. The optional FHD IPS screen gives superb color consistency from any angle. The 3-cell battery inside the 5770 has a medium-size capacity of 42 Wh. We have no information on battery life. Judging from the specs, you can assume at least 4 hours on a charge. For network connectivity, the smartByte technology makes gaming and streaming smooth and uninterrupted, so a user never misses a second. This network solution ensures that the most important applications get the bandwidth they need for optimal performance. Besides that, Waves MaxxAudio Pro pumps up the sound, so the user can hear everything from concerts to film scores and gaming action with rich, resonant tones. Furthermore, the laptop has stereo speakers, a 720p HD web camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Ethernet LAN network connections, Bluetooth, two fast USB 3.1 ports and a slower USB 2.0 port, an HDMI video output, a combo audio microphone/headphones connector, and a 3-in-1 SD media card reader. The notebook also optionally includes a built-in DVD optical drive. As operating system Windows 10 Home is included. The laptop's size and weight might not be appealing to everyone but to those whose priority is screen size.

Series:

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.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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

8250U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

17.3":

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.
