  • Hey, how's it going guys.

  • This is Dave2D, and this is the 2017 Inspiron 7000.

  • So the model last year, the 7559, was a huge hit.

  • $800 gaming laptop that kind of hit most of the points pretty well.

  • And it was just a really good budget gaming laptop.

  • This model, the 7567, it's been redesigned.

  • The exterior is a little bit different.

  • The interior is revamped: new hardware, new Kaby Lake chips, new GTX 1050 cards.

  • But the price has stayed the same. Let's take a look.

  • So it's red and black again. Or kind of like dark gray.

  • But, I actually like this design.

  • It's got this sleek, minimal look going on, and the red accents aren't in your face.

  • They're angled away, or hidden behind grills.

  • But if you still want to go super red, they have that option as well.

  • So last year's model was already a very solid-feeling device.

  • The new one is equal, if not better, in build quality.

  • Everything feels sturdy. There's very little flex on the screen and chassis.

  • The one weakness, I would say, would be this hinge.

  • It's built well, I'm not seeing any play here. But, the hinges are positioned closer to the center like this.

  • So there's more opportunity for it to twist every time you open it up.

  • There's soft touch plastic again.

  • I was worried about this last year because, when you scratch it, it leaves a mark.

  • But it seems to hold up nicely if you're careful.

  • It does show fingerprints pretty easily though.

  • It has a standard port selection for the price point.

  • There's three USB-3's, HDMI, audio, ethernet, and an SD card slot.

  • There's no USB-C port, so there's no Thunderbolt 3.

  • It's super easy to get inside.

  • Single screw, and you get two RAM slots.

  • It's now running DDR4 memory, so speeds are a little bit faster.

  • And you can go up to 32 GB because of this.

  • The 2.5" SATA drive is here, and there's an M2 slot for a second drive.

  • Both of these drives are replaceable and/or upgradable.

  • The battery's pretty big. It's 74 Wh, and it'll get you around 6 hours of battery life of normal use.

  • If you're playing games, it's closer to an hour and a half.

  • This uses a 1080P TN panel. It's the same panel as the 2014 Lenovo Y50, and it's not very good.

  • It doesn't get very bright, and the color accuracy out of the box is weak.

  • Calibration makes it better, but the viewing angles are poor.

  • There's a very noticeable color and contrast shift when you tilt the screen both up and down, and left and right.

  • Now, keep in mind that this is an $800 laptop with a GTX 1050 in it.

  • They gotta make some compromises to sell it at that price.

  • And in this particular case, it's the screen.

  • It's not that the screen is like superbad or anything.

  • I've definitely seen worse.

  • But because of how good the rest of the hardware is, this sticks out as being the weakest link.

  • So if you really need a good screen, you gotta upgrade this thing to the 4K panel

  • It's obviously more expensive, but you gotta do that if you can't stand a mediocre screen.

  • The webcam up top is 720P

  • Looks okay.

  • The keyboard feels really similar to last year's model.

  • There's nothing I really dislike about it.

  • The layout is good, backlighting is red, keys feel pretty comfortable.

  • A little stiff on the response. You have to tap harder than normal, but it's a very good keyboard overall.

  • There's one issue that's not really related to the keyboard itself.

  • It's this bottom left corner.

  • So, it's pretty pointy.

  • My natural resting position doesn't hit it.

  • But if you have big forearms, or if you have like a wide resting position for your left arm, this might bug you.

  • The trackpad is good. It uses Windows Precision drivers. I like seeing that.

  • But, it's a plastic surface again, not glass.

  • The tracking is decent. It performs fine, it just doesn't feel premium.

  • But the thing that makes this trackpad good is the click mechanism.

  • It has good pressure activation, and it's a very snappy click. It's satisfying to use.

  • When I'm playing games, my palm sometimes makes contact with the trackpad,

  • but the palm-rejection software works well.

  • Okay, so for $800, you're getting a Kaby Lake i5, and a GTX 1050.

  • And if you want to bump that up to the 1050 Ti, it's an extra $100.

  • And then, if you want the i7, like the quad core i7, it's $50 on top of that.

  • Now, it doesn't matter, all of these are kind of like decent purchases.

  • But, I would highly recommend trying to get the 1050 Ti,

  • Because it's just a good value for what you're getting, in terms of gaming performance.

  • So, compared to the 960M from last year, the 1050 is about 25% better.

  • And then the 1050 Ti is another 25% on top of that.

  • So playing on that chip, at 1080P, lighter games like Overwatch will comfortably float over 100 fps on high graphics.

  • Bumping it up to Ultra will still get you over 60 fps.

  • Titanfall 2 also runs near 60 fps, on high graphics, on the 1050 Ti.

  • But basically most modern titles, as long as they're optimized, can hit 60 fps with very nice looking image quality, at 1080P.

  • If you want to know more about these video cards, be subscribed and watch my next video.

  • There's also something pretty special there.

  • The thermal management is fine. There's no real CPU throttling during games.

  • Idle fan noise is pretty quiet, and isn't too bad, even on load.

  • But there's no option to manually control it. It's done automatically.

  • Surface temperatures also comfortable.

  • There's no nasty hotspots that I could see.

  • Speakers are not bad.

  • There's a pair up at the front, behind the red grill, with a sub on the bottom.

  • They're pretty loud, and the lower frequencies from the sub are present.

  • It's not super powerful bass or anything, but you can tell that it's there.

  • All right, with the Inspiron 7567 from Dell,

  • we're looking at a budget gaming laptop that uses a lot of plastic, but has surprisingly good build quality.

  • The 1080P screen is a TN panel that looks decent head on,

  • but has poor viewing angles and doesn't get very bright.

  • The backlit keyboard is a little stiff, but it has a good layout.

  • The trackpad is solid.

  • Inside, the Kaby Lake CPU options, and the GTX 1050 or 1050 Ti,

  • deliver very good gaming peformance for the money, and are well-cooled.

  • The RAM and the two drive slots are incredibly easy to access for upgrades after purchasing.

  • And the 74 Wh battery gives you around 6 hours of battery life.

  • So, here's the deal.

  • For $800, you're getting a device that can play most games at 1080P, at 60 fps or higher,

  • with really good image quality.

  • And if you want to, you can pay that extra $100.

  • So that's, what, 10%, 12% more money, for 25% more performance with the Ti.

  • So, if you wanna do that, I mean, I would kind of steer most people towards getting a 1050 Ti,

  • But, if you can't, the base model's still really good.

  • Overall, great device.

  • Great components, aside from the display.

  • Great build quality.

  • Good performance.

  • Good value.

  • I think they did a really good job on this one.

  • Hope you guys enjoyed this video.

  • Thumbs if you did.

  • Subs if you loved it.

  • See you guys next time.
