Dell Inspiron 7577 Gaming Laptop Review

Posted on

What's going on guys it's HiTech.

Today we're taking a look at Dell's Inspiron 7577 gaming laptop.

So thislaptop aims at being a good sweet spot between high-end performance andaffordability.

It comes in at a retail price of $999 for the base model and$1349 for the fully spec'd model.

And with all the models rocking Nvidia's GTX1060 Max Q GPU, i'd say Dell definitely hit the mark here.

By gaminglaptop standards the design of the laptop is a bit subdued but I actuallylike it a lot.

I think it finds the right balance between the flashiness of agaming laptop and your normal everyday laptop.

The build quality is pretty good,it's mostly plastic but the keyboard deck is made completely of aluminum andit feels really solid.

The keyboard itself has red backlighting and feelsfairly good to type on.

It's not the best keyboard but certainly not the worsteither.

The keys have short travel time but don't feel too mushy so I don't haveany problems with it.

The trackpad is made of plastic but it's smooth and usesMicrosoft precision drivers so it's very accurate.

The trackpad buttons are alsomade well and required just the right amount of force to press.

You also get afingerprint reader that's built into the power button.

This is a really greatfeature and makes logging in really fast.

There are grills on the front and backthat are the main highlights of the laptops sleek design.

The ones on thefront cover the two speakers that sound pretty decent but lack bass and the oneson the back serve is cooling exhaust vents.

On the left side there's thesecurity lock slot, power adapter port, RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.

1 portand an SD card reader.

On the right is a headphone jack, two more USB 3.

1 ports, aUSB C port with Thunderbolt 3 and an HDMI 2.

0 port.

There is some moderatedisplay flex and since the screens hinge is set up in the middle oflaptop, you sort of bend the display slightly when pulling it up from thesides but I don't think this is a major issue.

Speaking of the hinge it looks andfeels very sturdy so I think it will hold up just fine.

You get a 1080p IPSanti-glare display and I think this is the weakest part of the laptop.

Don't get mewrong, it's not terrible by any means but colors just look okay and it doesn't getsuper bright.

Taking a look on the inside you have the 56 watt hour batterywith quick charge, a 2.

5 inch hard drive bay, the SSD, the wireless adapter, access tothe two RAM slots and the two cooling fans.

My model has Intel's seventhgeneration Core i7 7700 HQ quad core processor but you can also get thisconfigured with the core i5 7300 HQ.

Geekbench shows that the 7700 HQ and theGTX 1060 Max Q both perform very well.

But these are just synthetic tests.

How doesthe 7577 handle actual games? And the answer is, very well.

This laptop handles1080p gaming just fine.

In Overwatch on ultra settings I got an average of 90frames per second and in more demanding titles like Witcher 3,Rise of the Tomb Raider and Battlefield 1, I wasn't disappointed with theperformance at all.

I've been really impressed with whatDell has done with the 7577.

For the price you get great specs andperformance.

So if you're in the market for a new gaming laptop I don't thinkyou can go wrong with this one.
