The detail of our analysis in this article.
Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook enough for internet use?
We can consider that for certain uses, such as surfing the web, it is not necessary to buy a high-powered model. This Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. Dell is a manufacturer that has been offering laptops for several years now, but for this laptop they have used lower quality components. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
With a 17.3 inches size, you’ll be able to carry it easily. For all users who don’t appreciate the use of the mouse (with or without wires), it Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook is provided by default with a touch screen. The overall design is of quality and is made to last. A product made to last a long time. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care Dell has been taken in the overall design of this model.
With a processor Intel Core i7-10510U, Dell offers an already outdated technology. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. So certainly, with this laptop you have enough resources for internet surfing and word processing, but you may have to change it in less than 5 years. Very clearly, with only 16 Gb ofRAM, this laptop is not the best equipped model. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. Your computer will work better and longer.
Most other competing computers have more storage space. If you want to have your holiday photos locally, you’ll soon reach the limit of 512 Gb. And if really this point was blocking for you, you can always buy an external hard drive and plug it into the usb port.
Last point concerning the autonomy of 7 hours: A time of freedom that you will have to take into account and keep the power kit not too far away. Batteries store little energy, and the computer consumes a lot of energy when it is used. In other words, you will have to keep this Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook most of the time connected to the power cable.
Is Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook one for watching movies and listening to music ?
With this laptop, Dell offers a product oriented toward general use. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
As for the screen, it is a model of reduced size, 17.3 inches, with a 1920×1080. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The only criticism that could be drawn is its size, which makes it a small device compared to other competing models at the same price; over a whole day, it can tire the eyes. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 2.5 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
Offered with a glossy slab finish, this Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook product is particularly suitable for multimedia-oriented use. Enhanced contrast, sharpness and color brightness are the main benefits you will get from this Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook. On the other hand, you may feel visually tired after 2 or 3 hours of viewing.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Intel Core i7-10510U that is several years old now. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one NVIDIA GeForce MX250, which with 16 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Connectivity is unlikely to be a priority for Dell. The Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook only 4 ports only provides you with ports. Not enough to connect everything; you’ll have to choose.
Nothing is more unpleasant than a computer that shuts down before the end of the film because of batteries of poor autonomy. With its autonomy of 7 hours, don’t expect to do a movie marathon. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.
Is Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook planned for travelling ?
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. This seems to be the issue that the Dell didn’t really take into account in the design of this Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook. Having tested this laptop in situations as diverse as traveling, in a suitcase between shirts and jeans, while traveling between home and work, on a family weekend, here’s what you should remember.
In other words, leave it at home and only take it for occasional short trips.
With a weight of 2.5 Kg, it is easily transportable. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. With a 17.3 inches screen, it is not easy to surf the internet or to look at pictures in a group.
Dell has decided to provide a touch screen on the Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook. Always convenient, the operating mode is as simple as on your smartphone. It’s up to you to make accurate navigational selections.
The glossy slab offers better viewing comfort than the previous model. The rendering on screen is good. On the other hand, this shiny slab can be a nuisance in brightly lit areas.
Too bad for the processor Intel Core i7-10510U that equips this computer; it is one of the weakest of the moment and moreoverit consumes too much power.
Also, the batteries hold the charge for a shorter time; probably the worst results in this range. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
With 7 hours, this model is unfortunately one of the weakest currently offered on laptops.
Reduce the risk of breakage when traveling with an OS installed on an SSD, and storing on a standard HD, this model provides a total of 512 Gb of space. This double disk technology allows to record the operating system on the principle of the usb key, and to store personal data on a standard disk but more resistant in time. This reduces the noise caused by the movement of the read/write heads of the standard disk and preserves the storage capacity. For those who want more space, you will then have the option of a cloud account.
Travel will be a mere formality when you decide to take it along. With a screen of 17.3 inches and an ultra light weight, it is one of the best in its category.
The manufacturer offers only a few connection options, with only 4 connectors. Currently on all available models, it is the laptop that has the poorest equipment.
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 17-7791 Ultrabook for travel use.
The Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook for audio or video editing ?
Definitely not intended for audio and video editing. This type of use requires power and memory, which this model lacks. However, this does not prevent you from editing as long as you are patient and no other applications are launched. You should also be aware that this model is becoming outdated. So use this laptop for simple tasks, otherwise you’ll reach the limits and very often you’ll have frozen screens .
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. Nothing will stop you from modifying photos, videos and music, despite a processor Intel Core i7-10510U that is almost obsolete. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
This model has both an SSD disk for fast boot time and a conventional disk for backup. It offers a total available storage space of 1 512 Gb, the best available. It’s one of the best on the market right now. In case you need an additional external storage drive, no problem with a connection to external media. In extreme cases, you will still have the option of external storage via usb ports.
As with most laptops, don’t expect incredible battery life (7 hours). This is less than average, so we advise you to keep the power cable close by, otherwise you may lose your work unexpectedly. With most competitors on the market, this figure is better.
On the connection side, the Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabooki s equipped with USB 3 technology. 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.
As you will have understood, it Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook proposes a rather basic oriented use. However, it will be perfect for web browsing and word processing.
Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook for video games?
It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. Our tests have shown that yhis Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook wasn’t designed for video games. The Dell technical choices were rather made to meet classic needs such as internet browsing or word processing.
Provided with a resolution of 1920×1080, this model is unfortunately much less equipped than its competitors. The visual comfort during the game phase, and the image quality will be less good.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Since Dell has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. Unless you play games with designs older than 5-10 years.
When it comes to disk space, this computer ranks low.512 Gb are the minimum for computers today, making it one of the laptops with the least amount of space.
Even if the weight is not very important when you use it for games, know that this model is one of the lightest of the market with its 2.5 Kg.
Note the disadvantage in terms of autonomy: it is one of the lowest with 7 hours available.
In short, if you want a fun gaming experience, choose another model than this Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook one. And save this one for more classic uses, like surfing the net.
Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook for office automation ?
Not really designed for office use, Inspiron 17-7791 Ultrabook it’s still a good product. Review of the details for this new laptop.

Among the choices available to you, it will be interesting to take into account the weight in order to facilitate its transport. An almost featherweight of 2.5 Kg.
Key spacing will be important for office use. On the right-hand side you will find a number pad.
