Dell Inspiron 15 7559 Detailed Review
Dell’s Inspiron 7000 series laptops have always been the company’s mainstream laptops featuring high-performance features in a premium brushed metal aluminum chassis. But this time, instead of adding an alienware variant, Dell has decided to launch its new gaming laptop within the existing Inspiron 15 series.
The Dell Inspiron 15 7559 comes in a plastic shell with a soft, matte rubber finish on top to avoid the feeling of cheap plastic. Dell has used the logo, vent, speaker grille and red accents on the trackpad to add a gaming feel to the laptop. Overall, the whole design is quite smooth, different from its huge competitors. You can open the laptop by simply holding the screen from the edge and you don’t have to hold the bottom part because of its extremely tight hinge and slim display panel. Weighing in at 2.7 kg, it is not lightweight but it is not as heavy as other high-end gaming laptops.
The slim display panel also brings this factor that it is quite brittle and shaky which can be bent with some force. The screen is a shiny one. In addition to these concerns, the 15-inch 4K UHD LED-backlit display on the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 is very good. We missed Dell’s InfinityEdge display that we saw on the Dell Precision 5510 but Dell confirmed that there was no compromise on color reproduction or contrast levels. The images were bright and crisp with precise touch recognition.
In terms of connectivity and ports, it has all the bells and whistles. Below the hood, our review unit includes an Intel Core i7-6700 HQ with 16GB RAM and 128GB M.2 SSD in addition to a 1TB 5400 RPM hard disk drive. Along with a Biffy processor, the 7559 laptop features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M with 4GB GDDR5 VRAM for your gaming needs, which makes it competitive with other Biffy gaming laptops.
In our graphic benchmark, 7559 has scored fairly well and lacks a path behind the table leaders. Speaking of Eugene Valley, 7559 scored 1383 (at 1080p) while chart topper Acer Predator 15 scored 2241 and MSI GE62 6QD 1937. However, if you are a casual gamer and want to play some games that are not in high demand, you will also be safe in 4K resolution. The laptop has three vents to control the temperature. One Hour CS in 4K: GO pushes the laptop’s temperature to just 76 degrees Celsius and pushes the dual cooling fan to overdrive.
The island style backlit chocolate keyboard is average with adequate feedback and original travel. The keyboard tends to dent in the center but there is nothing to ruin your typing experience. The trackpad comes with a glossy finish with a red outline and is quite precise. Left and right click buttons have been combined and they have performed well
In the case of audio, the laptop comes with two speakers covered with a red grille on top of the keyboard and a subwoofer at the bottom. The sound is clear and distortion free but the subwoofer fails to make any noticeable additions to the overall output. The Dell Inspiron 15 7559 comes with a WaveMaxx Pro audio software that lets you customize the output via manual control.
One of the features of this laptop that we absolutely love is that it is maintenance friendly. The interior of the laptop can only be accessed by opening the bottom held by a single screw. In our ultimate battery performance test, the laptop survived for only 3 hours under high performance which is nothing but average, great.
Dell Inspiron 15 7559 is a good choice if you are looking for a high-end portable workstation that allows some amount of casual gaming and 4K is a requirement. If you’re looking for a serious gaming machine, you’ll want to look for more expensive but best-performing gaming laptops, such as the Acer Predator 15 or the somewhat cheaper ASUS ROG G501 that boasts similar features.
