The Dell Inspiron 17 5000 5770 / i5770 is a big-screen 17.3-inch Windows laptop. Spaciousness of the display with HD+ 1600×900 or Full HD 1920×1080 resolution is a good selling point. It’s worth noting that the HD+ screen is a TN type, meaning narrower viewing angles than on the Full HD IPS screen. Touch-screen support has been omitted. The plastic-clad Dell Inspiron 5770 / i5770 features powerful 8th Generation Intel Core processors – the quad-core i5-8250U or i7-8550U. Furthermore, the notebook provides optional AMD Radeon 530 2GB dedicated video card. It’s a lower-end GPU, but still noticeably faster than the entry-level Intel UHD 620 option. Dell has provided robust storage options – combined 2TB hard drive + 256GB solid state drive storage, besides the basic 1TB HDD option and 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD combo. System memory sizes of 8GB and 16GB are standard for the mainstream notebook category the 5770 belongs to.

The laptop also features a built-in DVD optical drive, chiclet-style keyboard with numeric pad and optional backlight, stereo speakers, a web camera, 802.11AC Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an HDMI video output, SD memory card reader, combo mic / headphones audio jack, two USB 3.1 ports, and a USB 2.0 port. On configurations with the Radeon video card, there’s an additional USB-C port which can also function as a video out port.

The notebook has a built-in 3-cell 42 WHr battery, but we have no info on battery life. Since 42 WHr is a medium capacity and the 17.3″ screen is big, you can’t expect and exceptionally good battery life on the Dell 5770.

Although the laptop is physically large, with its weight of 6.1 pounds it isn’t too heavy.
