The 2016 Inspiron 7567 was a great Mid Range Gaming Laptop coming from the house of Dell. This year Dell announced an upgrade to this already pretty good gaming device at IFA 2017. We are talking about the Dell Inspiron 7577 or the 2017 Dell Inspiron 7000. It now comes with a Higher-end GPU & some other minor technical upgradations throughout the board. It also has an updated design while keeping similar aesthetic flavors from it’s predecessor.
So as I mentioned earlier, this laptop has almost identical specifications to the 7567 from last year. But, some segments have definitely been improved.

So, we still have the GTX 1050 & 1050 Ti configurations available but, we also have a GTX 1060 version available for the 7577 this year. Dell has also, included Thunderbolt 3 support so, connecting the 7577 to External GPUs & 4K Monitors are also possible this time. Though, you can also connect 4K 60 Hz Monitors with the HDMI 2.0 port as well.
Something I must mention is that, the GTX 1060 Models of the Inspiron 7577 carry Nvidia’s Max-Q Design. So, the performance won’t be as good a full fledged mobile one but, the Thermals will be comfortable & the Fans will be quiet. Also, in case you want to do VR, the GTX 1060 models shall deliver a good experience on that.
The Battery however has been decreased from last year. The Inspiron 7577 packs a smaller 56 WHrs Battery compared to the 74 WHrs Battery in the 2016 Inspiron 7567. Though, Dell has included Fast Chaging for the 7577. So, charging time should be shorter. But, you may need to charge it more often than you’d expect.
The, Inspiron 7577 will start at 999 USD for the Full HD models & 4K models will start at 1449 USD. If you want to pick one up, they’ll be available from September 12 in the US via. Best Buy & Dell’s Website.
