The all new Dell Inspiron 7000 37V4C has recently been released and is a laptop model geared towards those that need a powerful device to run demanding applications or users that need something that can handle the latest games. Also, what is becoming more and more common is for users who need both, a machine that can keep up with their demanding work plus give them the ability to sit back, relax and play the latest games when the work day is done. Below we will review some of the benefits and downsides this device offers and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 256 GB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
For those that have gaming requirements on their list of must haves when shopping for a new laptop having a decent graphics card is going to be a must and the Dell Inspiron 7000 37V4C includes just this. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 is very capable for a laptop graphics card and has 4 GB of dedicated memory. It is easily able to handle most gaming and give you great graphics.
The amount of memory that they have included in this laptop is nothing special at 8 GB, about equal to a standard mid-range laptop. What is impressive that Dell has done with memory on this model is give you the ability to easily upgrade should your demands increase or as the laptop starts to get older a great way to extend the life of the unit. It is fully capable of handling up to 32 GB of memory giving you a fairly cheap way of drastically improving the performance.
For a gaming laptop the almost 8.5 hours of battery life it can provide is very impressive, Many gaming laptops suffer from poor battery life but that isn’t the case here.
We don’t want to make this sound like the Intel Core i5 processor isn’t some decent hardware, In most cases this is a great choice and perfect balance between affordability and performance. But with that being said for a laptop that is marketed as a gaming device we are surprised to see anything less than the Intel Core i7 under the hood. This laptop is on the affordable side of gaming options available and part of the reason is because of the scaled back processing power.
The SSD hard drive that is included helps improve the performance and soften the blow of an Intel Core i5 instead of i7 processor but one area it doesn’t score high marks on is storage space. With only 256 GB of storage it won’t take long for heavy file savers to fill it up.
The Dell Inspiron 7000 37V4C isn’t your typical gaming machine as it is much more affordable but at the same time less capable. Even with that in mind it is still a very powerful device and is probably best suited for power users who want to be able to do some light gaming as well more so than hardcore gamers.
