The trackpad on the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 is large, and we found no issues at moving the pointer or scrolling through documents & website pages. Right-handed users might find the trackpad"s position towards the left a bit uncomfortable. We"re also not a tín đồ of the texture on the trackpad. We wish it felt smoother. It might not bother most gamers since they"ll be using a mouse or a controller.

Above sầu the keyboard are dual front-facing speakers. They"re loud & sound fine. There"s also the subwoofer at the bottom panel. We have no complaints about it either. The bass isn"t enough to make our desk shake, but a máy vi tính with a built-in subwoofer offers richer audio than a máy tính without one.

Software

The Dell Inspiron 15 7559 comes with Windows 10 trang chủ. It also comes pre-installed with Dell software such as Dell Help và Support, Dell Shop, & Dell Audio. There"s also an offer for 20 GB of Dropbox space không tính tiền for 1 year & a không tính tiền 30-day trial for McAfee LiveSafe. You can expect to see everything else that Windows 10 has to offer like Cortana, Microsoft Edge, Office, Windows Store, & more. Unfortunately, Windows Hello isn"t supported trough an iris or fingerprint scanner.


When it comes lớn performing tasks such as checking emails, browsing the web, listening lớn Pandora, or watching Youtube, the Inspiron 15 7559 expectedly ran smoothly. The main problem was the loading times we encountered when opening more serious apps. For example, Adobe Photocửa hàng CC takes about 50 seconds to lớn load on our Reviews unit. The main blame goes lớn the slow 5400 rpm hard drive sầu. For comparison, the Lenovo Yoga 700 we recently reviewed with the same processor and RAM, but faster SSD drive, can open Photoshop in about 10 seconds. This performance issue can be fixed by adding an SSD drive sầu & moving the system files there. Adding RAM will also boost performance. Both of those options, though, cost money.

If you"re looking for numbers, here are the results from the CrystalDiskMark and Geekbench 3 benchmarks:


The Dell Inspiron 15 7559 has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB video clip card, which works well with recent games. We"ve installed Just Cause 3 and gọi of Duty: Black Ops III on our reviews unit and they run fine at 48 lớn 60 frames per second at medium khổng lồ high settings.

The dual fans on the Inspiron 15 7559 help keep it cool, but you can hear the whooshing noise even at arm"s length when playing games, editing in Photoshop, or even when using the website browser. If you"re playing a game, we suggest increasing the volume khổng lồ drown out the tín đồ noise. After about 20 minutes of gaming, the máy vi tính hits about 95 khổng lồ 100 degrees. The hot spots are in the middle of the keyboard và the vents at the bottom.

With a 74 WHr 6-Cell Battery, the Inspiron 15 7559 gets about 5.5 hours until we have lớn plug it in. With gaming, it"s about 2.5 hours. Fully charging the Inspiron 15 takes about 2 hours.


The máy tính comes with a huge charger và cable that"s about 9 feet long. It bundles up somewhat, but still takes up a good amount of space in a bag. Then again, we"re talking about a 5.7 lb 15-inch máy vi tính here, portability is not the highest concern

Verdict

The Dell Inspiron 15 7559 is a great máy vi tính if you"re looking to play demanding games, but don"t want to spover a lot of money. If you"re not a game thủ, it"s also a cheaper alternative khổng lồ consider if you"re interested in the Dell XPS 15. The specs are similar, but there are some sacrifices. The Inspiron is bigger and heavier. The XPS 15 also has aluminum and carbon fiber materials as opposed to lớn plastic on the Inspiron 15 7559.

Starting at $799, the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 already includes the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB video clip card that is capable of playing recent games like hotline of Duty: Black Ops III và Just Cause 3. A Dell XPS 15 with the same RAM & CPU costs about $1200 and only has 2GB for its GeForce GTX 960M Clip card.


The downside on the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 is the slow loading times when opening apps & games, but that can be fixed by upgrading to an SSD drive sầu. You can also add more RAM for more performance. Upgraders can easily add these two components by opening the bottom panel with just one screw.

Overall, we think you"ll be happy with the Inspiron 15 7559 if you"re looking for a budget gaming máy tính xách tay.
