Review Dell Inspiron 7737 CN77304 Notebook

 

Dell's premium consumers are no longer equipped with just Haswell processors and potent graphics. Performance? Anyone can do that. Instead, the Texans are upgrading their optics, materials, and all-around workmanship. A successful combination of...

Battery life of up to 6 hours, 30 minutes; Richly colored TN panel with good viewing angles; Premium construction materials / look and feel; Good maintenance options; Minor heating and speaker emissions; Full integration of CPU / GPU Turbo; Good gaming...
