Purchasing a new gaming laptop can break your budget since most of the top-notch laptops cost more than $1000. However, that doesn’t mean that there are no inexpensive options available. If you are looking for a laptop under $1000 that functions exactly like the expensive ones, Dell’s Inspiron 15.6-inch gaming laptop is what you need.
The Inspiron i7559-763BLK gaming laptop is very lightweight, weighing only 5.67 pounds. This slim laptop has a height of 1-inch, width of 15.1-inch, and a depth of 10.4-inch. It is designed to provide a good gaming performance and productivity in work. Its key selling point is the 15.6-inch full HD display with a panoramic 16:9 ratio and anti-glare technology, providing a clear and crisp picture.
Moreover, its keyboard has a very spacious layout, which makes pressing keys easier while playing. The whole keyboard is backlit, which is best when you want to play games at night without turning on the lights. Another distinction in design is that its touchpad is not positioned in the middle but slightly to the left.
The 15.6-inch full HD screen offers a high resolution of 1920 x 1080 that is pre-calibrated for various modes including gaming, design work, movie watching, office apps, and a unique setting called anti-blue. Anti-blue minimizes blue colors which aid with eye fatigue. All in all, it is a very sharp and crisp display with vibrant colors.
This laptop is equipped with a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD). As compared to the previous generation of drives, it offers high-speed data transfers and shorter boot times. If you are not satisfied with its space, don’t worry because at the bottom, there is an easy-to-open hatch that provides access to another drive slot where you can insert a second SSD or a 2.5-inch SATA drive.
It also ensures high-quality sound, predominantly while using headphones. Even its integrated speakers produce a relatively good and loud sound, which makes using external speakers unnecessary. Furthermore, the laptop supports a broad range of connectivity and has a standard 1 GB LAN port, Bluetooth 4.0, an SD card reader, three 3.0 USB ports and one HMDI port. Also, it has a non-removable six-cell battery which can last up to ten hours.
This laptop provides a high-level performance, especially for gamers, thanks to its fast 6th Generation Core i5 processor. Since it’s a gaming machine, it comes with an 8GB DDR3L 1600MHz memory. Moreover, it is installed on a single chip, leaving the second slot on the mainboard vacant for upgrading memory up to 16GB. It has a GeForce GTX 960M graphic card which allows you to play almost all of the games at high settings and receives thirty frames per second.
