Dell, the reliable laptop brand launched their latest gaming laptops at the event. Read on to know more about Dell’s latest laptop.
Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series Powered By GTX 1050 Ti / GTX 1060
Dell has announced a new version of its popular 15-inch Dell Inspiron 7000 series. The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series is especially known for its attractive pricing. And the new version of the laptop comes with an improved graphics card and slightly refreshed design.
The New Dell laptops come with a refreshed design with matte black finish and with the red backlit keyboard. The laptop also has a very distinct front grill which makes it look unique in a pool of gaming laptops.
As we have been saying, the major highlight in the new model is the graphics. The current 7000 Gaming has NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics card powering it, but the latest one adds an option for a 6 GB GTX 1060 Nvidia Max-Q technology based graphics card.
Nvidia Max-Q technology makes the laptops thinner and improves the cooling efficiency of the machine and also allows for addition of high end graphics cards to laptop machines without a need for increasing the bulk. Recently Asus launched the Asus Rog Zephyrus in the Indian market which is powered by the Nvidia GTX 1080 and is very thin laptop.
Rest of the specs of the machine are similar to the previous model: Intel 7th gen i5-73000HQ of i7-7700HQ chipset options, 1080p and 4K display panels, can swap between 4 GB and 32 GB RAM options and you there is a lot more hard drive and solid state drive options this time around.
Oddly, Dell is still using the 7th generation of Intel processors which are used in almost all the gaming notebooks from 2016 and early 2017, we were expecting them to use the 8th Gen Intel Kaby lake refresh processors in the new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 machine to increase the performance and FPS in games.
Also, the new model comes with a better Wi-Fi adapter- 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
Along with upgraded graphics card, the laptop also features a smaller battery. Dell has shaved down the battery size by 25%, which is the only letdown. Though Dell claims that the new Inspiron batteries come with fast charging support and can charge from 0 to 80% in just 1 hour.
Moreover, there are some design changes as well, especially Dell has played around with the vents in the laptop.
Ports in the new machine include USB 3.1, HDMI, and a new Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C port.
This new machine will be up for sale at $1000 for the 1080p display model and $1500 for the 4K display model. It is not known when Dell will introduce these new models in India but they will be available in the US in mid September.
The new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a great machine both for the college or school work as well as for gaming, something which lot of young college goers would be looking to buy.
Dell has also launched new Dell Alienware laptops at CES 2017.
