With Windows 8 — for a smooth, versatile PC experience.
The forged aluminium design with diamond-cut beveled edges is just one of the premium features you'll find on the new Inspiron 17. It's easy on the eyes and feels great to hold. The backlit keyboard with 10-key numeric keyboard makes working in low-light environments much easier - it spoils you for anything less. And the edge-to-edge touch display uses Corning® Gorilla® NBT™ Glass to complete a truly breathtaking laptop.
Multimedia the way it was meant to be
Brightest Inspiron yet
The optional Full HD 17.3" display with available touch screen has 44% more pixels than the previous generation Inspiron 17.
Crystal clear sound
Waves MaxxAudio® Pro brings crisp, rich sound to your favorite music, movies and videos.
2GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT750M discrete graphics (optional) give you the muscle you need for responsive gaming and video edits.
We want you to love your new PC for years to come. That's why we test every Inspiron laptop 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 with no problems.
• Twist and turn: Call us excessive, but after twisting every Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected.
