When somebody asks me which laptop to buy, I have an easy answer.
Dude, you're getting a Dell.
13 and 15 inch Dell Inspiron 7000 two in ones are two of the best laptops you can buy.
For under $800 US.
They feel durable, speedy, and they come standard with fast solid state drives and excellent 1080P displays.
But when you go to buy one, you might notice a third version, One with a giant, 17 inch screen.
This is the Dell Inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1 and it's the first 17 inch laptop that does this.
Plus, it's got a discreet Nvidia graphics chip that you won't find in Dell's Standard PCs.
It means you can play Overwatch on this laptop as long you turn down the settings.
But honestly I wouldn't buy it.
First off you should know that this laptop weighs over six pounds.
Unless you're planning to prop it up on me The tablet mode isn't terribly useful.
And while it plays Overwatch, the Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics chip can struggle with more demanding games.
Battery life is actually worse.
I saw a Pretty crappy three hours of real world use compared to four to five hours for Dell's 13 and 15 inchers.
And when you want to charge it, you can't simply carry around an awesome USB C battery like you can with Dell's Smaller laptops.
The NVIDIA chip means you need to carry around this power brick instead.
The biggest reason I'd steer clear is this, Dell makes you pay.
This 17 incher starts at $900 Dollars and you'll pay $1,150 to get a speedy, solid state drive instead of a slow, magnetic platter.
The Inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1 is still a pretty good computer, but it's not nearly as good a deal.
It's the black sheep of this laptop family.
