Using the Dell Inspiron i7559

From a design standpoint, this laptop maybe doesn’t look all that spectacular, but it does seem to be really solidly built. At one inch thick and ten inches deep, this isn’t a super thin device. Five and a half pounds is also quite heavy. This definitely is not a super portable device, but then no top gaming laptops really are.

Following the trend with gaming laptops, Dell has put a red trim and some red detailing onto this laptop. I don’t really understand why gaming laptops always have this little bit of colored detail and I would prefer it to just be plain black, gray, or silver, but it looks fine. Maybe that detail just helps people to identify your laptop as something special.

While the display isn’t quite as high def as the Dell XPS 13 2015 Version, this is a nice display at 1920 x 1080 with 60 hz refresh rate. I also am loving the backlit keyboard which is a really nice touch that for some reason a lot of even high end laptops don’t include. The back light is white, not red, in case you were wondering.

The Dell Inspiron i7559 (ad) powers on fast, isn’t particularly bogged down by bloatware, and runs really smooth with Windows 10. With the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card, along with the new 6th Gen processor and excellent RAM, this device seems to be able to run practically any game.

The solid state drive is of SanDisk origin and is just another feature that I love. No more spinning memory discs. I expect this to eventually become the norm in laptops, yet it seems to be taking forever to really catch on and to advance. A lot of people seem to be adding another SSD to the laptop, which apparently is quite easy to do.

Overall

I really am loving the Dell Inspiron i7559 (ad) laptop’s capabilities and price. If you want a gaming laptop with a good graphics card, or even just a high-end laptop that has a new 6th gen processor and a solid state drive, this should be a consideration for you. If you are worried about portability, this is a heavy and semi-bulky laptop that isn’t all that thin. Design-wise, it looks to be absolute quality from the display to the case to the backlit keyboard, although you are stuck with the red trim. The battery is pretty good for this sort of laptop with a 10+ hour life. Most devices of this kind are currently around 5-6 hours of battery life.
