The back-to-school season is upon us (where did the summer go?) and that means sales on electronics (among other things). Count Dell among the companies offering up goodies at a discount. Among the more interesting products is its Inspiron 15 7000 line with gaming grade GPUs tucked inside.
Dell's highest end configuration is currently on sale for $1,000, which is $250 below its normal selling price. It features a 15.6-inch 1080p display (IPS) powered by an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, 16GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU.
For storage duties, Dell paired a 128GB solid state drive with a 1TB hard drive. Other features include a 720p webcam, two "tuned" speakers plus a subwoofer, a full-size spill-resistant keyboard, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 2.0 output, 2-in-1 memory card reader, GbE LAN port, headphone/mic combo jack, Noble lock slot, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
Upgrade options are available, and so are several other lower priced configurations. The cheapest setup with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU costs $850 and pairs an Intel Core i5-7300HQ processor with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.
For $100 less, you can get the same setup, but with a non-Ti GeForce GTX 1050 GPU. We think it's worth the extra Benjamin for the Ti model, but if you're on tight budget, it's an option.
