Chassis, connectors, Dell Inspiron 17 3793-880 screen
With its black textured-finish case, it has a discreet look.
In terms of connectivity, this large format laptop is well equipped. It has 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 modules for remote connections and communications, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor via example, audio and Ethernet ports as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, the USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in above USB 3.0 devices.
As an optical drive is integrated on the right side, one can read and burn CDs and DVDs on this PC, a feature which is all the more appreciable as it has become more rare in recent years due to the modes of finesse and dematerialization
Bon point Boulanger specifies that the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in case of limited ambient light.
The screen will be of interest to those who wish to display High Definition content on their PC and / or watch videos, because it adopts a precise Full HD definition higher than the 1600×900 standard as well as a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) and is less tiring for the eyes in the long run.
Performance, battery life of Dell Inspiron 17 3793-880
This Dell Inspiron 17 3793-880 is a 17 inch High Definition laptop computer designed for everyday use.
It delivers good performance in this area, such as Internet surfing and office automation, because it is built around a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful for multitasking and a low-power Ice Lake Core i3-1005G1 processor. Turbo.
Like the AMD Ryzen 3, the Intel Core i3 (including Turbo) show their limits under software that consumes processor resources.
However, the Core i3 Turbo have the advantage of being significantly more efficient than the non-Turbo Core i3s (Core i3-7xxxU and predecessors).
Within the Core i3 Turbo Ice Lake takes place the Intel UHD 620 graphics part. Modest, it allows of course to watch photos and videos. However, as it is not supported by a dedicated graphics card, this black laptop is not designed for gaming and more generally demanding graphics work.
In any case, many people will appreciate that this PC benefits from SSD storage because it clearly reinforces daily responsiveness compared to a simple hard drive.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent. Thanks to the SSD, application launches are much faster than with a hard drive, as are starts / stops, for example. More generally, the fluidity and responsiveness of this PC are significantly improved by the SSD compared to a hard drive.
Here, we are dealing with a 256 GB SSD, a capacity certainly sufficient for many uses but lower than the standard of hard disks. If you need more space, you can add a second SSD or hard drive to the free 2.5-inch slot.
We also have the possibility of relying on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to obtain fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this laptop which is not the most easily transportable due to its heavy weight but whose 17-inch format is particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home), expect around 5 hours on battery in light use.
