Dell Inspiron 15 7559 GTX 960M review | pc9x

Dell’s launches its budget-friendly Gaming Laptop Inspiron 15 7559. The basic model starts at $799 US Dollars with considerable specifications, including the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M with 4 GB of graphics card Memory. Starting at less than $800, this budget gaming notebook has all the features you want, a relatively conservative style, and even a quiet under normal workload.

Dell Inspiron 7000 series has long been a safe choice for those looking for a cheap laptop. You can purchase Inspiron 15 7559 from the Dell website or from Amazon. The basic model is priced at £749 comes with a 1080p screen, not a 4K screen. In addition to the base model are a 1TB hard drive and 8GB of memory. The intermediate version has a 4K screen, but no SSD, only 8GB of RAM, priced at 849 pounds.

The Upgraded version has all the high specs such as, 4K UHD display with touch-panel, 1TB HDD with an additional solid-state drive, double the size of memory 8×2, and is still under $1,000. For further customization, there is only one screw on the entire back panel.

This design is very similar to the old Inspiron 7000 series, except that Dell has a matte rubber surface-treated plastic chassis on aluminum alloys. Coupled with the red pattern around the trackpad, speakers, vents, and logo on the lid, you’re looking for a very eye-catching and low-key laptop. The radical appearance is more subtle than gorgeous. This is what we agree with. Although this laptop is rather bulky, it measures approximately 17mm (when closed) and weighs 2.72kg. Of course, the Inspiron 15 7559 will not be easily carried around.

The black plastic chassis with some red elements is obviously a matter of taste, and in particular, should attract users, but we like it. Both the lid and the palm rest have a silky soft touch and are not easily affected by fingerprints and can be easily cleaned. Unusual: The Dell 7559 has three well-designed fan exhaust pipes. Two of them are behind and the other is on the left.

Although the lid, which is easy to open with one hand and is easy to rebound, is not very thin, the image distortion can be seen at some positions when pressure is applied. Like most touch screens, the display glass covers almost the entire display frame. It does not require a great deal of force to twist the pedestal, but it also has some unhealthy squeaks that affect the astonishing immaculate impression of the chassis. However, we did not notice any build quality issues such as uneven gaps or different edges.

The rubber texture feels very good and is not easily scratched. It extends to the entire palm rest area, which makes typing very comfortable. The trackpad is wide and placed in an off-centre position so it does not interfere with typing. Windows 10’s multi-finger gesture works fine, but not as sensitive as on a glass touchpad. Since this laptop is game oriented, you will use the mouse anyway, so it should not be a problem. There is a full-size keyboard with chiclet-style keys, which are backlit white. The tactile response is very good, but fortunately, the keyboard does not bend when used, which is useful for typing.


The processor of the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is the Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core -running at 2.6GHz, and overclocked up to 3.8 GHz. Although memory comes from the last generation of DDR3L 8GBx2 memory sticks. For faster storage, there is a 128GB SSD. The HDD is a budget Hynix SATA flash storage that complements a more stable one terabyte.

Some professional users need powerful graphics, and if they running high graphics games or editing, they can get Nvidia accelerated GPU up to 4 GB’s. The Nvidia graphics card promoted Dell’s Inspiron 15 with an impressive performance in Full HD games. Such as Batman Arkham played at 55 fps, Tomb Raider at high settings gives minimum 34fps, and with extreme details UHD resolution, You can get 27 fps.

The Inspiron 15 7559 packs a considerable amount of firepower under the hood and can be used as a gaming laptop. We have the Intel Core i7-6700HQ, a quad-core processor with Hyper-Threading Technology running at 2.6GHz and a maximum Turbo frequency of 3.5GHz. You also get 16GB RAM, 1TB Seagate HDD (5400rpm), Samsung 128GB M.2 SSD and Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M with 4GB dedicated GDDR5 memory.

The Skylake quad-core chip defeated the old chip of the Haswell (fourth generation) Core i7-4720HQ on the same frequency. Well, so it’s only 2% or less in Geekbench (3577 and 12878 points, compared to 3494 and 12801 of Asus G501). PCMark 8 Home scored 3018 points with OpenCL acceleration; there were no 2621 points.

Specs and Features,

The touchscreen is an IPS panel with good image quality. Our measured contrast ratio is 500:1, and sRGB standard coverage is 97%. The noisy touchpad is not attractive enough and quite accurate, but each finger tap shows annoying dullness. If you use 7559 in the reference library, look forward to the scathing look.

Two built-in fans are not uncommon for quad-core 15-inch notebooks, but Dell can install three large vents to ensure ventilation (two vents to the left and one to the right). After good business practices, the bottom panel is quickly removed to allow swapping of memory, memory, wireless card and battery services.

Once you pop out from the bottom panel, the SSD, hard disk, RAM and battery are all easily accessible, it’s just turning a single screw. All cables and connectors are labelled neatly to facilitate putting everything together. Both memory slots are occupied, so adding more memory will require replacing these modules.

This laptop is equipped with Windows 10 Home 64-bit and some standard pre-installed software, including trial version of Office 365, 20GB free Dropbox space a year, 15 months of McAfee Security Center order, Dell Backup and Recovery, Dell power supply Manager and Dell Audio.

Normally, gaming notebooks will not give you much performance when unplugged. All these power consuming parts are often not conducive to longevity. We do not know what kind of witchcraft Dell did on the Inspiron 15 7559, but we were impressed by the results of our battery-intensive PC Mark 8 Home battery life test.

Inspiron 15 7559 is expected to run smoothly when performing tasks such as checking e-mail, browsing the web, listening to Pandora, or watching Youtube. The main problem is the load time we encountered when opening more serious applications. For example, Adobe Photoshop CC takes about 50 seconds to load our review unit. Mainly due to slow 5400 rpm hard drive. For comparison, we recently used the same processor and RAM to view the Lenovo Yoga 700, but a faster SSD drive can open Photoshop in about 10 seconds. This performance problem can be solved by adding an SSD drive and moving system files in it. Increasing RAM will also improve performance. But both options require money.

Laptops performed well in benchmark tests. We begin with a comprehensive test. The Cinebench R15 gave us an OpenGL score of 82fps and a CPU score of 673. POVRay returned 2 minutes and 56 seconds of tracking time, which is faster than some of the other Skylake laptops we tested. We got a good frame rate in the 1080p “Far Cry 4” and the quality was set to medium. Even so, this game looks quite amazing, so it is not completely lost.


Although the price view, you can only get the necessities and three USB 3.0 ports, in practice, it should be enough. The HDMI 1.4 output must be used to connect an external monitor, so only one monitor can be used in addition to the internal screen. We use an external hard drive to measure at a USB 3.0 port with a transfer rate of about 100 MB/s.

With the performance of the SD slot Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC 64 GB UHS-II. When you copy a large file, the maximum transfer rate is up to 84 MB/s, and when dealing with a typical jpg, it is expected to be as high as 58 MB/s.

The Wi-Fi module Intel dual-band Wireless-AC 3165 is actually very clear. If the 2.4 GHz band is very crowded in your location, you will be glad to hear that the 5 GHz network is also supported, even if you obviously need the appropriate router. The standard IEEE 802.11ac (“Gigabit-WLAN”) is no longer a truly new product, ensuring high transmission rates.

Battery Life,

The Inspiron 15 lasted only about 1 hour and 16 minutes under the Battery Eater Pro and was too light for a 6-cell battery. We ensure that only the integrated Intel GPU is active, not discrete. When used for surfing the Internet, listening to music, watching videos, and using Office documents and other routine tasks, we gained more than three and a half hours of battery life.

This is better than the average of an ultrabook with an i7 processor, better than our recently tested competitive gaming laptops, such as the Lenovo Y700 and the MSI GS40 Phantom-001. Of course, if you want to play games away from power outlets, you will inevitably use up a large part of the battery.
