Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7559 (i7559) 15.6″ Basic Gaming Laptop
The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7559, also known as the i7559, is a basic 15.6-inch gaming laptop. It features the mid-range Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR5 dedicated video card instead of the high-end GTX 970M and 980M. Nevertheless, with a starting price of $799, the 7559 is one of the cheapest gaming notebooks on the market and capable of running all the latest game blockbusters. True, with lowered graphics detail settings and resolution in some of them.
The default display option is a 1920×1080-pixel Full HD panel. Optionally, available is 3840×2160 Ultra HD 4K screen with touch support. Both choices include IPS technology for the widest possible viewing angles.
The Inspiron 15 7559 / i7669 includes the 6th Generation Skylake upper-mid-range Intel Core i5-6300HQ or high-end i7-6700HQ processor. Both CPUs have quad cores and belong to the latest 6th Generation Skylake chip family. They provide not only enjoyable gaming experience, but also enough power for demanding tasks like photo and video editing or design creation. Depending on software, performance for these duties can be further improved by utilizing the dedicated video card. Of course, the CPUs can complete your daily home and office chores with ease.
Dell’s 7559 comes with either 8GB and 16GB of system memory. Both are sufficient for modern gaming and seamless multitasking, but the latter option adds more potential for running multiple RAM-intensive programs simultaneously. Storage options are a 1-Terabyte hybrid hard drive with added 8GB of solid state drive-based cache for snappier performance and a 1TB HDD combined with 128GB M.2 SSD for even better balance between capacity and speed.
Just like almost all modern gaming laptops, this model has an illuminated keyboard (except some configurations) and a built-in subwoofer bass speaker besides a pair of standard stereo speakers. The notebook also doesn’t lack any important feature in the networking and connectivity department. It sports 802.11AC Wi-Fi, Gigabit LAN, Bluetooth, HDMI out, three USB 3.0 ports, a combo audio port, and a media card reader.
Dell has included a capacious 74 WHr battery, which is claimed to provide “more than 10 hours” of power autonomy. But, you can’t expect the battery life to last so long if you run power-hungry games off the grid.
All parts are encased in a black plastic chassis with red accents. The laptop weighs in at 5.7 pounds which is a quite light weight for a gaming machine. Also, its profile of 1” is very thin for gaming notebooks’ standards. The bottom panel is easily removable. It’s held by only one screw, so you can access and replace RAM, storage, and battery easily.
The closest competitor of the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7559 specs and price wise is the Lenovo Y700. HP is expected to release a similar system, too.
