Dell I55677161GRY or i5567-7161GRY-PUS Review

Not all budget laptops are built for gaming and multimedia. Dell I55677161GRY or i5567-7161GRY-PUS is an exception to this rule. It’s a powerful laptop that comes with 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB DDR4 RAM and 1 TB 5400rpm hard drive. However, a solid State Drive and discrete graphics can boost the performance a lot but you get what you pay for. It comes with Intel HD 620 integrated graphics which supports many latest PC games like Battlefield 1, Mafia 3 etc.  However, not all games are playable in highest resolution. You can play games like Sims 4 and Minecraft smoothly on this machine. As it is integrated graphics, it uses system memory. Again Dell i5567-7161GRY comes with standard 1366 X 768 pixel display. Full HD display is helpful for HD photo/video editing. With a small increase in your budget, you can get Acer E5-575G-75MD which has same i7-7500u processor but it comes with NIVIDA Geforce 940MX graphics with 2GB DDR5 RAM plus 8GB DDR4 RAM (system memory). It has 256GB Solid State Drive as well. The display supports full HD resolution (1920 X 1080). NVIDIA Graphics not only supports gaming but also boosts performance of certain photo and video editing programs.  Both, Dell I55677161GRY and Acer E5-575G-75MD, come with backlit keyboard and inbuilt CD/DVD drive.

However, none of the laptops are touchscreen enabled. If you are looking for a touchscreen laptop, you can consider HP 15 Touchscreen i7-7500U 8GB 256GB SSD Windows 10 Laptop. As the name suggests, this laptop is powered by Intel core i7-7500u processor and has 56GB Solid State Drive. But it comes with only 8GB DDR4 RAM. It doesn’t offer backlit keyboard but you will get inbuilt CD/DVD drive. Getting back to the Model i5567-7161GRY-PUS, the Intel core i7-7500u processor operates with 2.7GHz base frequency and the frequency can rise up to 3.1GHz. It has 4MB of cache. You can’t upgrade processor or graphics.

Dell I55677161GRY comes with 12 GB RAM (8Gb +4Gb) and it supports max memory up to 16GB. The laptop has two memory slots.  The 1TB hard drive is preloaded with Windows 10 home 64 bit operating system and trial version of  Microsoft office.

The display of the laptop supports max resolution of 1366 X 768p which means it can play content in 720p but not in 1080p. However, with the help of HDMI, you can watch full HD content on compatible HDTV, monitor or on other display.

The laptop comes with 3 USB ports (including two USB 3.0). Unlike Acer E5-575G-75MD, it lacks USB 3.1 Type C port. Besides USB port, the Dell i5567-7161GRY-PUS comes with one HDMI, SD card reader, headphone/microphone combo and LAN port. It has integrated 720p webcam as well.

Network connectivity is supported by 10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN, Wireless ac and Bluetooth. The laptop comes with 3 cell 42 whr battery which offers battery backup up to 6 hours, depending upon usage.
