Redefine fun and productivity with a sleek, attractive 17.3" laptop that combines the power of a desktop with a brilliant HD screen
Your home entertainment hub
Dynamic display: Enjoy a vivid new view with the Inspiron 17’s superior display — the expansive 17.3" screen creates an immersive experience that you won’t want to put down. Full HD doubles the resolution of traditional HD – with over 2 million pixels, you get a truly immersive multimedia experience.
Vivid color: With True Color, Dell laptops deliver exceptional visual clarity and color fidelity allowing movies to look how the director intended, and photos to look as they did when you were there. True Color offers several profiles allowing you to tailor your display's color temperature, vibrancy and tone, giving you the ability to adjust color to compensate for the lighting hue (fluorescent, incandescent, etc.) where you're using your laptop.
More features, major impact
Studio-quality sound: Whether you’re mixing, streaming or chatting, Waves MaxxAudio® delivers lower lows, higher highs and outstanding audio performance.
Easy productivity: Breeze through spreadsheets with a 10-key number pad and zoom, point and scroll through content quickly with the large touchpad.
Built-in DVD drive: Watch movies, load software or burn your favorite playlist with the built-in DVD drive. It's great for storing large volumes of data on DVDs so you can archive files and applications.
Designed for the real world — because that's where life happens.
We want you to love your new PC for years to come. That's why we test Inspiron laptops for reliability not just in the places where you expect it, but for the open road ahead.
Turn up the heat: From locker rooms to locked cars, we test Inspiron laptops for survival in harsh short-term heat conditions of up to 65°C/149°F.
Everything hinges on it:We test Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure they still feel tight, even after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times.
Keys to success: We test commonly used keys for 10 million keystrokes and touch pad buttons 1 million times with no failure. So go ahead, finish your novel.
Buttoned up: No matter what you set your power and multimedia buttons to do, we've tested them all to survive up to 40,000 pushes.
Twist and turn: Call us excessive, but after twisting an Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected.
Always a good fit: You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 750 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
