The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 - Up Close, Display & Hinges

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Up Close

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (Price Check) is a workhorse, but Dell prettied it up as best they could. It sports a thin bezel design, reducing its overall size while maintaining a large 15.6″ display.

On the left side, you will find the power port, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Type C) port, a HDMI port, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Type A) ports and the 3.5 mm audio out port.

The SD card reader is located on the right side, next to a third USB 3.1 Gen 1 (Type A) slot and a collapsible Ethernet LAN port. Right at the end is the Noble security lock slot.

It is surprisingly thin – just 2 cm at its thickest point, and lighter than it looks at just under 2 kg.

 

Narrow Bezel IPS Display

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (Price Check) sports a narrow bezel LED backlit display with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. Thanks to its IPS panel, it has a wide 178° viewing angle, and a decent colour gamut.

This is not the InfinityEdge display you find in the new Dell XPS 13 2018, so there is enough space at the top for a HD web camera (1280 x 720 pixels), and the infra-red camera that allows for Windows Hello facial recognition.

180-Degree Hinges

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (Price Check) has 180-degree hinges, which allow you to lay the screen almost flat. It was meant to work in conjunction with a touch screen display (available in some countries), to allow for easier sketching, or collaboration with other people. The touch screen option is not available in Malaysia.

    Thank you for this review. I’ll probably buy it now. Like other Dell notebooks, this one seems to have user-replacement parts as well. As availability & prices happen, I’ll be replacing the SSD, HDD and other parts, as usual.
    My 2013 model Dell XPS-15 has an old Intel i7.

    Now to an upgrade, with user-added 2TB HDD and 2TB SSD, but the fastest Intel CPU, at the moment. Only my “old” 2TB HDD might transfer to the new unit, but prices have dropped so much now, that the old 2TB HDD to 4TB is easily upgraded.

    On the audio upgrades, many hardware options now exist. Bluetooth & other wifi units of all kinds. Cabled units of many types also are easy, cheap & high quality now. Trouble is that these options are so new, so rapid, that that this year’s “best” changes each year. The low-priced items being made in China, with strange China-brands, seem worth purchasing, every year now, imho.
