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.
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.
