  • Finally ... Waiting for series 7000 to hit Indian stores....
  • Wondering... What will be the price of Inspiron 7000 series in Indian Market??
  • about 70,000 INR.. i was waiting to buy one for me personal use later after hearing about skylake processors i postponed buying 5th i7 machine    
  • The inspiron 7559 is not a bad cheap multimedia and gaming device. I hope they've got rid of the smaller than normal keyboard though, the one lifted from the xps13. There's plenty of for a proper and full size keyboard!
  • Windows 7? I'm sure Microsoft will LOVE that.
  • Well business use these so they may not want to use w10 for a number of reasons. And there is the free upgrade!
  • It's very annoying that Dell offers VERY few systems with Windows 10 preloaded. The "free upgrade" is more work. And since Dell ships their systems in legacy BIOS mode instead of UEFI, unless you do a clean install by booting from the Windows 10 media (which they don't include unless you ask for it), you don't get the benefits of secure boot and the faster bootup time of UEFI. The option to ship with Windows 7 (or even 8) is fine. But excluding 10 makes my job harder.
  • I completely understand where you're coming from. I buy dell a lot and use separate ssds and install fresh but yes its a pain.
  • <Off Topic>: Any idea if/when they have a new Dell Venue 8 Pro?
  • found something here:
  • Looks like the same old boring, non-astetically pleasing, supposedly business class computers they've been putting out for over a decade now. They have to realize that the so called business users and consumers are the same people. Give us premium looking hardware to choose from like apple and Microsoft are doing.... They don't distinguish between the two, they're one and the same. The all in ones from Asus ate astetically playing and on par with Macs, on the other hand Dell's 9010, 9020, and 9030"all in one are garbage in comparison. Guess they better hope their recent purchase of EMC pays dividends for them.
  • Aren't you taking about the xps line? That line is the one in the apple msft price range. Only the fullest of the fully specced inspiron costs premium money, and at that price one would wonder why one wouldn't pick up a xps. These are the "cheap" offerings, and still pack a punch.
  • One more off-topic: how about the XPS desktop/all-in-one line? The only model they have refreshed with Skylake so far is the XPS 8900. How about others?
  • no windows hello integration and only one SSD which is 128 gb... looks like i need to go elsewhere for a laptop...pity
  • That's some misleading image on the laptop's screen. I don't there is such a game nor, do I think that it would be able to run it at such graphic fidelity.
    Yes, I know. I'm getting my pants in a twist over not such a big deal. :P
  • <p>It was odd that there was no Dell Vostro laptop reviews on their website until I read this review: <a href=" <p>Am I the only one finding it hard to trust Dell?</p>
