The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series laptops have been given a refresh, with a host of upgraded features and specs to bring the popular portable workhorse right up to date.
The official Dell UK site now has a newly jazzed-up version for sale, and while it doesn’t look massively different on the outside, there are plenty of internal tweaks, designed to make the machine “perform at a higher peak”.
There are three versions of the rebuilt 15.6-inch laptop to choose from, each with varying degrees of performance. But which one is right for you? Well, we've taken a closer look at the different specs, features and price points to help you decide.
Here’s everything you need to know about the refreshed Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series laptops.
Dell Inspiron 15 7000 specs
The main change under the hood is the inclusion of new 10th Generation Intel Core processors, which offer higher speed and performance power.
There are three main options to choose from. The first, most basic model comes complete with an i5 processor, an Intel UHD graphics card, 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage. The next model up comes with a more powerful i7 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB GDDR6 graphics card, 16GB of memory and 512GB of storage.
Finally, the top-of-the-range model has the same processor, graphics card and memory of option 2, but with 1TB of storage. Options 2 and 3 also come with a larger, six-cell battery and the wi-fi-boosting WiFi 6 protocol.
Elsewhere, the specs are mostly the same for the three model variants. Each comes with a 15.6-inch FHD screen that supports Dolby Vision and has a screen-to-body ratio that’s 5.9% higher than the previous generation of the Inspiron 15 7000. There’s also a 720p camera and stereo speakers with Waves MaxxAudio Pro tuning.
Dell Inspiron 15 7000 features
The new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 models feature adaptive thermals, which means that the system knows when the computer is on a lap or on a desk and adapts its heat profiles accordingly. There’s a fingerprint reader for quick login, and an ExpressCharge function that can get your battery from 0% up to 80% in as fast as an hour.
An improved lift-hinge on the laptop adds a tilt to the keyboard for more comfortable typing, and the touchpad is 9.5% larger than the previous generation. And you can pair your iOS or Android smartphone with your laptop thanks to the handy Dell Mobile Connect function.
