Powerful package for daily needs
Display and Design
The Dell Inspiron 17R N5720 carries a 17.3-inch HD WLED backlit display which looks extremely sharp and vibrant with an HD+ resolution of 1,600 x 900 pixels. The large screen has been designed to give a computer like experience.
The outfit looks elegant and premium with the brushed moon silver finish engulfing the major part of it. However, it has a bulky weight of 3.2kg which will definitely pose problems in terms of portability.
Processor and OS
Doing the duty on the inside is a powerful 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor racing at 2.2GHz and based on HM77 Express chipset. It is supported by an equally mighty 8GB DDR3 RAM which can of course be expanded up to 16GB via 2 user accessible memory slots. Such a powerful configuration gives you the full liberty to play with all kinds of tasks. The 1GB NVIDIA GT 630M graphics card manages rich videos and movies well. It runs on 64 bit Windows 8 OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Dell Inspiron 17R N5720 poses a 1MP webcam with digital microphone for smooth online video calls. The 1TB SATA HDD makes sure that the user doesnÂt face any kind of storage problem. It also has a DVD RW Drive so that you can transfer data via disks. For taking care of the entertainment needs, it has got a subwoofer and stereo speakers powered by Waves MaxxAudio.
Battery and Connectivity
The Dell Inspiron 17R N5720 carries a 6 cell Li-ion battery promising up to 3 hours of uninterrupted service. Connectivity features include Bluetooth v4.0, HDMI out, Ethernet port, WLAN, 4 USB 3.0 slots and digital media reader.
The Dell Inspiron 17R N5720 definitely looks big as it comes with a large screen to give desktop like experience but comes with a lot of weight which makes it anti-portable. It disappoints in terms of battery backup as well. However, it scores well in other departments. It flaunts a massive HDD, HD webcam and four USB 3.0 slots. It is good for powerful business and decent multimedia.
