Dell Inspiron 17 5759-5118 Notebook Review

 

GPU downgrade.Dell's 17.3-inch all-rounder comes with a Skylake processor and matte Full HD screen. A Radeon graphics card is also on board. However, Dell has opted for a rather weak model that does not quite fit with the concept of an 800-Euro (~$872)...

bright, high-contrast screen, Full HD resolution, removable battery, maintenance options, accurate touchpad, decent speakers

TN panel, pliable keyboard, weak GPU, few interfaces, Fast Ethernet only

The new Inspiron 17 model is equipped with a Skylake processor. This leads to enhanced application performance. However, Dell downgrades the graphics performance. Overall, the installed Radeon R5 M335 graphics core is weaker than the GeForce 920M in...

Great Buy

 

Bought this for my wife for Christmas to replace an aging Sony Vaio. She says she loves it. The touchscreen works well and she is getting used to Win10. I felt this computer offered really great bang for buck features.

Great Laptop with good performance

 

I bought this laptop for the size of the screen as well as it being a touch screen, I did take into consideration processor speed and Ram, both are more than adequate for my needs. The only negative I can say about this machine is the touch pad....
