Dell Inspiron 17 7000 Review - A Large 2-in-1 Device With Loads of Potential

There is no Getting Around the Size of the Dell Inspiron 17 7000

One look at the Dell Inspiron 17 7000 and you would think of it as a normal laptop, but you will be surprised that it is actually a 2-in-1 unit. As a matter of fact, there is no getting around to how large the device is. However, its biggest advantage is also its major flaw; this is because folding the device to switch between laptop, tablet, and presentation modes will always be a two-handed exercise. It’s not one of those convertible devices that you can just easily flip the screen over with the use of one hand.

Even though it is quite huge to move between the different modes, the Inspiron 17 7000 lets you take advantage of a roomy display that practically does not exist in any other convertible device on the market (at the time of writing anyway). For businesses that need a device that want to show off their company’s videos, sales pitches, and other presentations in a large enough screen, then this might be a solid choice for those needs.

Speaking of its display, it does feel like a missed opportunity. This is because the resolution maxes out at 1080p, which does limit the usefulness of it being a productivity device, especially if you’re hoping this would replace your laptop. Nevertheless, there’s still enough screen real-estate for multi-tasking comfortably. But for office workers that are already attuned to monitors with higher resolutions will find the smaller pixel count to be a bit of a disappointment.

There are two configurations available for the Dell Inspiron 17 7000. The first one is the cheaper option, which will fetch you a 6th generation Intel Core i7-6500U processor that is mated to 16GB of RAM. It also has 128GB SSD. As for the second configuration, everything is the same except for you will take advantage of 512GB SSD instead of 128GB. Overall, this particular machine is an intriguing one as it offers a lot of potential with its larger size as compared to other 2-in-1 devices on the market.
