Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 17-5770-0357
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.
