Dell Inspiron 17 i17RV-9909BLK is a low cost 17 inch notebook with the fast and powerful i5 processor. Hard drive, memory and processor are all great and can handle any task except for the latest 3D games.

Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 processor at 1.8 GHz speed up to 2.7 GHz, 6GB DDR3 SDRAM and 750GB Serial ATA hard drive at 5400 RPM rotating speed.. We were not expecting to see an i5 processor at this price. It is quite capable and fast and energy efficient but a bit slow for the latest games, despite its 17 inch screen and a large 10-key keyboard. You can restart the computer easily in less than a minute. 750GB storage space is more than what most average computer users would require.

You have the picture quality and great colors on the 17.3 inch HD Plus WLED- LED backlit display at 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, even though it is not a touch screen. You are already getting all the other great features and beautiful picture quality, so you can probably do without a touchscreen. You won't have any complaints.. Built-in speakers and Waves Maxx Audio 4.0 offer good sound quality too.

Dell Inspiron 17 i17RV-9909BLK Review
This is a big 17 inch screen laptop so it may not be that portable for everyone but it is only a bit over 1 inch thin and 5.8 pound heavy. It is also great to have a big screen when you are watching movies or playing games. Keyboard is very well designed and comfortable with spaced out keys, but it is not backlit. Just like with the touchscreen, do you expect to get a backlit keyboard at this price range? Operating system is the Windows 8.

You can easily get more than 4 hours in normal use from the 6-cell battery of the nice and modern looking Dell Inspiron 17 i17RV with black matte finish. Connectivity options include 802.11 bgn wireless, 8X CD / DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive), Audio-out Ports, HDMI port, USB 2.0 Ports x 2, USB 3.0 Ports x 2, 8-in-1 Media Card Reader and Bluetooth.

Pros: Capable Ivy Bridge i5 processor - Comfy keyboard - Great sound and video - Plenty of hard drive space - Many ports -Energy efficient - 6GB RAM for multitasking - Affordable.

Cons: Windows 8 - Not a Touch Screen - No backlit keyboard.

Conclusion: Dell Inspiron 17 I17RV-9909BLK will help you complete your tasks faster, work more efficiently with its latest Intel Core processor and 6GB RAM. It is a very quiet laptop and you won't be distracted with noise while you're working. If you are looking for a bigger than normal screen high quality laptop that is quite good at anything you want to do on a computer, is solid, well-built and reliable that will last you a while and that won't cost too much, this Dell Inspiron may well be the one for you.
