Dell slashes $250 off the Inspiron 7567 ahead of IFA 2017
In what appears to be a permanent price drop, the mid-range Inspiron 7567 SKU can now be had for $1000 USD down from $1250 while the lower-end SKUs all have $150 shaved off the final price. The popular Inspiron 7567 can be configured with either GTX 1050 or GTX 1050 Ti graphics to be a very capable machine for 1080p gaming on a budget.
The timing of the price drop is notable as it is mere weeks before IFA 2017 and the eventual unveiling of Intel's 8th generation Core processors. It's common for manufacturers to run promotions prior to any design refreshes or big announcements in an attempt to clear existing stock. Thus, while there is no concrete evidence that an Inspiron 7567 replacement is coming, the time tables certainly line up and it's possible that Dell could soon bring Max-Q to the mid-range Inspiron gaming family similar to how the company recently integrated the GTX 1070 Max-Q onto the high-end Alienware 15. We'll see by IFA 2017 later this month if the manufacturer will have anything up its sleeve.
The 15.6-inch Inspiron 7567 competes against the Samsung Odyssey, Gigabyte Sabre, HP Pavilion 15 Power, Asus GL553, and other budget gaming notebooks that also tend to retail close to the $1000 mark. In our reviews on the Inspiron, we noted its respectable performance and above average battery life but took off points for having a poor TN panel option and no USB Type-C.
