Inspiron 17 3793 the right choice for surfing the internet?
If your need for a laptop comes down to surfing the web, whether on e-commerce or information sites, and to making a few tables in excel, you could be satisfied with this Inspiron 17 3793. This Inspiron 17 3793 is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. The material used by Dell are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. In other words, don’t expect to keep it for more than 3 years.
With a 17 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the Core i3-1005G1. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. The 8 Gb of RAM available on this Inspiron 17 3793 is correct, equivalent to other products in the same price range. It’s up to you to add more on the additional pitches provided if your needs arise.
The 500 Gb make this laptop a mid-range laptop in terms of available space. In any case, it should be enough for a use like surfing the web. Dell comes with this Inspiron 17 3793 a laptop that you’ll keep for a few years before it becomes obsolete.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 5 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. It is in the average range of what is done with today’s battery technology. Because of this last point, you can either switch to a competitor’s laptop or always have the product plugged in; it’s up to you.
Inspiron 17 3793 the right choice for watching movies ?
With this laptop, Dell offers a product oriented toward general use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this Inspiron 17 3793 is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. Finally, a simple computer, yet not really made for audio and video.
The laptop from .Dell is imposing by its size. Large by size, with 17 inches and a high resolution of 1920×1080. Because of its wide screen, it is perfectly designed for watching movies. The rendering is bright and vivid, and if you take a moment to look at the screen from several angles you will see that there is no distortion of the image or inverted colors.
The only disadvantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop of 2.8 kg.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. On the other hand, it will be annoying for regular use in a dark room. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
For the sound part, the Inspiron 17 3793 is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Core i3-1005G1 is now outdated. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
On the application side, Dell chose to let you do it. There’s only the operating system. This is a Windows 10 that allows you to add the free or paid software you want. Clearly, to watch movies, nothing more.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel UHD Graphics 620, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
For connectivity, you will have 3 ports. In the norm compared to most other computers in the competition.Just what you need to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. Dell promises 5 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
The Inspiron 17 3793- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes Inspiron 17 3793 to be easily carried around. At least that’s what we find out a priori. Difficult to store in a suitcase, not very suitable for transport, tests have shown that this laptop will be more in its element for very exceptional trips.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
This is one of the heaviest models compared to the competition: 2.8 Kg. Every transport is painful. For a laptop it”s bulky to move. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. With its 17 inches, the screen will however render a large image.
No backlit keyboard on this Inspiron 17 3793. Not really necessary.
We enjoy viewing on this screen which displays deep and vivid colours. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
Too bad for the processor Core i3-1005G1 that equips this computer; it is one of the weakest of the moment and moreoverit consumes too much power.
The result is a poorer autonomy. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Dell; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
An autonomy of 5 hours allows this model to average what the competitors do.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 500 Gb. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. Thanks to this, Dell was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
When away on business, your laptop will mostly stay at the hotel. And the only times you’ll have to carry it will be between the bus or train and your hotel room. The reason for this is its size; with 17 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
With 3 connectors, this Inspiron 17 3793 allows multiple connections. This is roughly equivalent to what the competition is offering.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
Because of all these elements, we do not recommend this Inspiron 17 3793 for travel use.
The Inspiron 17 3793 for audio or video editing ?
If you’re serious about editing and creating music, then you pay a lot of attention to processor speed and memory. It appears that this Inspiron 17 3793meets this need perfectly. Since the last generation designed by Dell, there have been many improvements on the components. It is a laptop designed for multitasking presented with Windows 10, which will allow to manage at the same time the audio-video applications consuming calculations.
The components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. Nothing will stop you from modifying photos, videos and music, despite a processor Core i3-1005G1 that is almost obsolete. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
The designers of Dell have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. Here with 500 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. Indicated for an autonomy of 5 hours by the manufacturer, it is preferable to keep your charger close by if you need to make changes while on the move or if you use a lot of resources for your audio or video editing. That’s pretty much what the other laptops do.
For the connector part, the Inspiron 17 3793has the USB3 format. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. With a throughput about 10 times faster than the previous standard (USB 2.0), you will be able to easily transfer all your video and audio files.
With the Inspiron 17 3793, you’re moving towards a very good product. And much more if you finally decide to use it only for word processing or web browsing, instead of audio video editing. In summary an excellent choice in this price range.
The Inspiron 17 3793 for online or local games.
There are very few laptops today that do not allow you to play video games. The tests we ran showed that the choices of Dell in terms of components – the chip, the processor generation, or the quality of cooling – make this an average laptop for gaming. On the other hand, if you have to go through several hours, these same components will seem weak.
As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. This model is proposed in resolution 1920×1080, that is to say one of the best on the market.
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Clearly, if you want to use it to play all day long, it may be relevant to turn to a more powerful model.
Our tests have shown that for Dell this computer is not intended for playing video games. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
A space of 500 Gb to save your data; this is in the average of what other brands offer. Useful for local games; as there are still many of them, even though online games are progressing.
The Wi-Fi technology of this model has wifi with 5GHz band, which facilitates online gaming. Interesting when you can play outside with full broadband.
You will limit your travels with this laptop; the cause? Its weight of 2.8 Kg which makes it one of the biggest on the market.
By offering 5 hours of autonomy, this computer is in the middle of the market.
