Versatile, the new Dell Inspiron 17 3793 black laptop with a 17-inch Full HD mat IPS screen takes advantage of a large storage capacity with fast SSD providing great responsiveness. Performing with its Quad Core i7 Ice Lake processor with Iris Plus Graphics G7 graphics solution, it is able to run low-power games thanks to its dedicated NVIDIA graphics with Optimus technology and can read and burn CDs and DVDs. But it does not have USB 3.1 Type-C and a keyboard backlight system.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Dell Inspiron 17 3793
It sports a discreet design with its black chassis textured finish.
The integrated connection to this PC is good if we make an exception for the absence of USB 3.1 Type-C yet expected on this type of machine. There is a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or a monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, audio and Ethernet ports as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
It is a pity that we cannot backlight the keyboard but some will appreciate in any case being able to read and burn CDs and DVDs with this PC. Unlike many computers which give in to the modes of dematerialization and finesse, it indeed incorporates an optical unit.
IPS, the screen offers significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles as well as more accurate colorimetry than the average. It lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and particularly to videos because of its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performance, autonomy of the Dell Inspiron 17 3793
This Dell Inspiron 17 3793 is a responsive 17 inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use.
On the storage side, Dell chooses a hybrid solution. We therefore take advantage of both great fluidity thanks to the 128 GB SSD provided to accommodate the system as well as the main software, and a significant capacity thanks to the 1000 GB hard disk capable of housing the rest.
The SSD guarantees significantly more responsive and fluid operation than a simple daily hard drive. This results, for example, in much faster start / stop and launch of software.
The heart of this computer is well supported for use by the SSD. Composed of a low-consumption Quad Core i7-1065G7 Ice Lake processor that we tested and 8 GB of RAM, it delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
However, to regularly carry out heavy work in processor resources, it pays to turn to a PC with a non-low power processor.
In terms of graphics processing, we are dealing with the Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 solution integrated into the Quad Core i7 and the dedicated GeForce MX230 card. NVIDIA Optimus embedded technology automatically switches between the two in real time, as needed.
Optimus favors as much as possible the Iris Plus Graphics G7 because it is energy efficient and thus promotes autonomy compared to the GeForce MX230 certainly more greedy but at about the same level in terms of power as shown in our test of the Core i7-1065G7 . The Iris Plus Graphics G7 is positioned at the level of an entry-level graphics card like the GeForce MX230.
The GeForce MX230 is activated by NVIDIA Optimus technology on board to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Iris Plus Graphics G7.
Of course, whether with the integrated Iris Plus Graphics G7 or the GeForce MX230, you can watch photos and videos on this black computer.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose 17 inch format is certainly bulky but comfortable in the context of a predominantly sedentary use (eg: at home), expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
