Business centric gadget with desktop sized screen
Display and Design
The Dell Inspiron 17R N5720 carries a large 17.3-inch HD WLED backlit display with a resolution of 1,600 x 900 pixels that produces sharp image detailing, popping colors and works comfortably while displaying 720p videos and games. However, its glossy coating can make it too reflective and the off axis viewing angles are not so good as well.
From the outside, this laptop looks extremely appealing with a fresh design which consists of a brushed metal effect for the plastic lid covered with a shiny transparent layer. However, it is extremely sensitive to fingerprints and scratches which mean you will have to devote time for maintaining its beauty. Moreover, it has a chunky base with an overall weight of 3.2kg which will pose problems in terms of portability.
Processor and OS
On the inside, there is a powerful 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor which gallops at a clock speed of 3.1 GHz and sits on HM77 Express chipset. Supporting it is an equally beastly 8GB DDR3 RAM so that you can access all kinds of powerful business tasks simultaneously without any lag. It comes with Intel HD 4000 GPU which is capable of managing low quality games and videos only. It runs on business friendly Windows 7 OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Dell Inspiron 17R N5720 comes embedded with a 1MP HD webcam at the top of the screen. It takes care of your storage needs with a whopping 1TB SATA hard disk. It has got a DVD RW Drive so that you can transfer files via disks. The stereo speakers combined with built in subwoofer powered by Waves MaxxAudio thereby producing sound better than an average laptop.
Battery and Connectivity
The 6 cell Li-ion battery enables the Dell Inspiron 17R N5720 to provide an uninterrupted service for up to 3 hours. Connectivity features include 4 USB 3.0 slots, Ethernet port, Bluetooth v4.0, WLAN, HDMI out, digital media reader and multi card slot.
The Dell Inspiron 17R N5720 has been made for delivering blazing performance for office related computing tasks and every home needs. However, it disappoints while handling high quality games and videos. The large display offers desktop like performance and offers crisp and sharp image quality but can strain your eyes with its glossiness. It is extremely thick and heavy but carries an intriguing look. Overall, it is a good one if you need one for business.
