4.2 / 5 stars (10 reviews) - Everything I hoped for!
Latest review: November 14, 2018 | Model: Dell Inspiron i5770-7449SLV-PUS
I'm very pleased with this Dell 17, but the one I received is a Dell 5000-17 (Model 5770) rather than a 7000 as in the item title description. The specs are exactly as was described for the model I ordered, though, so I'm not complaining. Maybe just a nomenclature difference? The screen is bright, the processor fast, and nearly all routine disk access is to the SSD so that is quick as well. I have some photos and some archival stuff on the hard disk, but I don't use that daily. The wifi connection seems somewhat slow to me (I have two other computers to compare) but not so much as to be burdensome.Reviewed by: Gary RV_Wizard | Read Dell Inspiron 17 5770 reviews...
3 / 5 stars - The Dell Inspiron 17 5770 offers decent performance with a comfortable keyboard, but it suffers from a lackluster display.

The Dell Inspiron 17 5770 is a solid choice for consumers looking for a middle-of-the-road machine that won't wreck a budget. For $649.99, you get a fairly attractive-looking system with decent graphics and overall performance and a comfortable keyboard. However, a dim, lackluster display paired with below-average battery life are major cons. The system's faults are even more apparent next to the Acer Aspire E15 ($599), which lasts over 9 hours on a charge. And if you have room in your budget, there's HP Envy 17, which for $879.95, offers a gorgeous 4K display and discrete graphics for light photo and video editing. But if you're looking for an entry- to mid-level multimedia machine that's cost-effective, the Dell Inspiron 15 5770 is worth some consideration.Reviewed by: Matt Sky | Read full review...
3.5 / 5 stars - The Inspiron 17 5000 offers capable performance, colorful design options and a large screen for under $500.Review date: March 4, 2016 | Model: Dell Inspiron 17 5000
For under $500, the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 provides capable performance, solid build quality and a large, colorful display. Just don't expect a lot of unplugged usage. If you want a smaller 15-inch screen or longer battery life, consider the nearly identical Inspiron 15 5000, which costs $600, but comes with beefier specs. However, if you want a solid 17-inch laptop that won't break the bank, the Inspiron 17 5000 is a very good choice.Reviewed by: Andrew E. Freedman | Read full review...
