Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7577 (i7-7700HQ, GTX 1060 Max-Q, 4K UHD) Laptop Review

 

4K overkill. We check out the popular 15.6-inch mainstream gaming notebook from Dell for a third time in yet another configuration. As impressive as the GTX 1060 Max-Q may be, it just isn't the best GPU for 4K gaming.

brighter display and more accurate colors than FHD SKU ; no CPU or GPU throttling when gaming ; relatively cool running temperatures ; fingerprint-enabled Power button ; quiet under low processing loads ; strong base chassis ; easy serviceability ;...

4K UHD gaming demands more powerful hardware than the GTX 1060 Max-Q ; keyboard keys and trackpad have weak feedback ; lid could be more rigid ; heavy for the size

For gaming purposes, a native 4K UHD panel is not the perfect fit for a system powered by the GTX 1060 Max-Q GPU. Unless if the notebook will be used exclusively for large spreadsheet work or undemanding games like Rocket League, LoL, Overwatch, or...

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7577 (i5-7300HQ, GTX 1050, 1080p) Laptop Review

 

With the handbrake on! After testing the Inspiron 15 with Nvidia's Max-Q technology, we have now also taken a look at the entry-level model of the series. But the storage device leaves a bit of a bad taste in our mouth.

IPS display with stable viewing angles ; GeForce GTX 1050 with 4 GB of GDDR5 VRAM ; acceptable core temperatures while gaming ; no throttling on power supply ; stable base unit ; low starting price ; Thunderbolt 3 ; generously dimensioned maintenance...

reduced performance when running on battery ; wobbly display cover, easily warped ; low display brightness ; low color-space coverage ; unclear keyboard feedback, limited travel ; very slow card reader ; no G-Sync option

Dell has made a lot of good choices with the Inspiron 15 7000 7577 and combines suitability for gaming with a long-lasting battery. The device is made of well-known components such as the Intel Core i5-7300HQ, which still has some life left in it. The...

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming (7577) Review and Ratings

 

This GTX 1060-based tweak of Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming line is among the strongest under-$1,000 gaming-laptop configurations we have tested to date.

Excellent gaming performance for the money ; Nice-looking IPS display ; Includes Thunderbolt 3 port ; SSD storage standard ; Easy end-user serviceability

Effective cooling, but relatively loud fans while gaming ; Shallow keyboard feel ; Inspiron 7567 had better battery life

As the saying goes, good things take time. We suppose that’s the reason we’re not grabbing Dell by the shoulders and asking why the Inspiron 15 7000 (7577) wasn’t available earlier in the year. Although similar to the preceding Inspiron 15 7000 (7567)...

Light but hard frame so that is a good point.

I am experiencing problem with mouse and dragging windows or suddenly web browser is shut down instantly without a reason. A bit disappointed in this, my previous cheaper laptop behaves better in relation this aspect.
