Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 17-7737

80% Dell Inspiron 17 7000 Series review - 17 inch laptop is attractive, versatile and portable
Source: Tech Advisor English
It's a shame that Dell couldn't shave a little more weight off the new Inspiron 7 7000 Series, as it would have been great to see a 17-inch laptop that you could carry around in a backpack or briefcase. However, it does provide a high-quality touch-sensitive screen and strong all-round performance at a competitive price, and it will be a good choice for anyone that needs a powerful, large-screen laptop for use at home or at work.

60% Dell Inspiron 17 7000 Touch
Source: Comp Reviews English
Dell's Inspiron 17 7000 Touch is going to be a hard sell for the company. The system is actually quite well built and offers battery life far better than most 17-inch laptops, but it does this by sacrificing its performance such that it only really distinguishes itself by coming with a touchscreen display that most other companies don't offer in this size.

60% OK Laptop, Horrendous Display
Source: Digital Versus English
The Dell Inspiron 17 7000 Series is an elegant laptop with a MacBook-inspired design that's very well manufactured. But it's a hefty 17" device that doesn't exactly make you want to carry it around all day, which is why it's odd they used a low-consumption processor. The overall performance is fine, it doesn't overheat and has long battery life.

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.
