Chassis, connectors, Dell Inspiron 16 7610 screen
At Dell, it is the XPS series which constitutes the top of the range, followed closely by the Inspiron range which corresponds to the intermediate offer. However, our Dell Inspiron 16 7610 does not have anything in between with its metal casing . The assembly is neat and the design remains very sober with perfectly smooth and matt surfaces and no particular aesthetic details. The color, however, allows it to stand out with an elegant dark metallic blue (Mist Blue). Discreet, this PC will go everywhere, in a professional and fun environment.
For such a powerful machine with a 16-inch screen, the weight of the Inspiron 16 7610 is well optimized around 2 kg with a thickness under 19 mm , or measurements worthy of those of an ultrabook, very close to its cousin the Inspiron 15 7501. So taking it with you on the go shouldn’t be a problem.
The keyboard is backlit in several shades, resistant to liquid splashes and has a numeric keypad, all valuable attributes for professionals. A fingerprint reader is hidden at the Power button, a practical integration to turn on your PC and authenticate directly, without having to type a password.
When you open this Dell, you immediately notice its 3K (3072 x 1920 px, Retina equivalent) IPS screen with thin side borders on this 16-inch screen larger than the average, which allows you to enjoy a particularly sharp display. in a comfortable format for office automation. Comfortable too, the anti-reflective coating ensures good visibility even in bright surroundings, also encouraged by the brightness of the screen (300 nits). The colorimetric coverage is also interesting with the entire sRGB space covered, a plus for photographers in particular.
Dell has matched its Inspiron 16 7610 with full connectivity dominated by a versatile and state-of-the-art Thunderbolt 4 USB 4 Type-C port . There are also two USB 3.2 Type-A ports (standard size), an HDMI 2.0 output and a full-size SD card reader. As for connectivity, it is entrusted to the recent Wifi 6 (802.11 AX) and Bluetooth 5.1. There is no RJ45 (Ethernet) port, no big surprise.
Performance, autonomy of the Dell Inspiron 16 7610
Central element inside this Dell Inspiron 16 7610, the processor is entrusted to an 11th generation Intel Core, the Core i5-11400H . This has 6 cores with a base frequency of 2.7 GHz and a high Turbo Boost speed of 4.5 GHz, which makes it perfectly capable of high performance tasks (45W). Overall, this translates into complete management of the versatile use made up of video editing, 3D rendering, programming or parallelization, with advanced calculations, but in measures to be qualified given the absence of a dedicated graphics card. Indeed, it often has an impact in creative tasks.
Opposite, the RAM is limited to 8 GB , which is the minimum at present for multitasking. Note that the two slots are upgradable to upgrade the RAM later if necessary.
You will understand, no graphics card comes with the processor here but the integrated graphics chip Iris Xeis nothing ridiculous so far and still offers a multimedia / versatile profile to the ultrabook. Thanks to it, Intel is back in the race against AMD but also and above all against small NVIDIA graphics cards such as the GeForce MX250 or the GeForce MX350. So, with the Iris Xe, you can play many games in 1080p under good conditions and work on tasks that require quite a bit of graphics power (Lightroom) without delay. Another benefit of having a faster graphics chip integrated into the processor is that it simplifies the design of the ventilation system and therefore causes less noise and heat than in a configuration with a dedicated graphics card.
For its part, storage is present in quantity in a solution that promotes system responsiveness without compromising on capacity. Indeed, the dedicated 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD will be able to accommodate the operating system and all programs and games and thus contribute to a more responsive execution, shorter loading times and an overall more lively environment.
Finally, the autonomy is served by a good capacity battery (86 Whr) which should allow more than 8 hours of use in Web browsing under Wifi. It’s perfect for on-the-go use.
