The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Keyboard & Touchpad, Cooling & Speakers
Keyboard & Touchpad
The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (Price Check) has a full-sized keyboard with chiclet keys. It is backlit, and spill-resistant.
It comes with a relatively large touchpad that supports multi-touch gestures and scrolling.
The large surface area gives you a lot of space to rest your wrist, while keeping clear of the large touchpad.
If you are wondering where is the fingerprint sensor, Dell integrated it into the Power button on the upper right corner of the keyboard. Yes, the fingerprint sensor is PART of the Power button![adrotate group=”1″]
Cooling Vents & Rubber Feet
The Inspiron 15 7000 (Price Check) is powered by the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 or Core i5 processor, with an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX GPU. All of their heat is channeled and exhausted out the back and underside, through these series of cooling vents.
Note the thick rubber strip running along the width of the Inspiron 15 7000. There is another one in the front. They keep the Inspiron 15 7000 securely “locked” to your table or lap. These rubber strips work better than four small rubber feet used in many laptops.
There are two speakers – one on each side – on the underside, near the front rubber feet. They are powered by Waves MaxxAudio Pro, but don’t expect much from them. They are basic speakers. If you want better audio, use headphones.
