Alienware isn’t the only gaming focused brand with Dell anymore. And while merging gaming with low end PCs might have not worked for brands like HP in the past, but Dell is giving it a shot with the Inspiron 7000 series.
At CES, Dell introduced the new Inspiron 7000 gaming laptops, inspired by the Alienware laptops. With a starting price of about USD 799, the Inspiron 7000 models aren’t as featured-packed as their Alienware counterparts, but the low price deserves a look to say the least.
The Inspiron 7000 gaming laptops come in both 14-inch and 15.6-inch variants and are powered by latest seventh-gen Intel i7 Kaby Lake processors and NVIDIA GTX 1050 GPUs. As to why Dell is dividing the Inspiron and Alienware brands could be because they want to keep Alienware as a premium high-end series which is more associated with newer technologies including 4K and VR.
Inspiron 7000 Specs
The Inspiron 7000 series offer up to 1TB HDD and 128 GB SSD for storage space. The laptops come with a default display resolution of 1080p, but the 15.6-inch model provides an option of a 4K display as well. They also offer gigabit ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM.
