Dell Inspiron 15 7000 – Used to be a contender

24 February 2017 301 views No Comment

When I first saw the new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop, my first impression was to immediately look into getting one. It was instantly in my top contender list along with HP Omen, Acer Aspire VX 15 and Lenovo Legion laptops. I really liked how it looked. It was a tiny little bit flashy, like a gaming machine should, but did not look like a toy. Very nice.

So I started researching it and found a model that I really liked, and was around the price that I wanted to pay. It has the i7-7700HQ, 16GB of ram and the NVIDIA 1050Ti. All for a price of $1449.00 (CDN).

Then I started reading about the poor quality screen on all the models except the top of the line with the UHD IPS screen. To be honest that was not a deal breaker, but it did give me pause and more time to look into other models.

Then the worst thing happened that any computer company can do to make me lose interest in a product instantly. They raised the price. 2 weeks ago it was $1449.00, and now it is $1549.00. Even if that is still a good value for what you get, it does not matter. Computers do not go up in price, they go down.

While some might not understand, this one is now currently out of the running for my new laptop. I simply cannot pay today for exactly the same thing that was cheaper yesterday.
