This review is from: DELL Laptop Inspiron 17R-5720-3 Intel Core i7 3632QM (2.20 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 17.3" Windows 8 64-Bit
Pros: It is amazing for the price due to the refurbish discount. It is everything I wanted and more.
It came with the described integrated GPU, but it also came with a dedicated Nvidia Gforce GT 630M with, I think, 1GB dedicated RAM, color me surprised. It might just be an oversight on their part or I missed something.
Cons: The right side USB ports don't work. It doesn't bother me much because I only need 2, but that isn't the point.
The wireless card goes wacky sometimes, but It might also be because of the new gateway that was put in by ATT almost the same time I received this laptop.
All of the speakers are underneath the laptop, I don't understand this. It kinda kills the sound when there is a giant fan right there. (I only use headphones though.)
Other Thoughts: A bit bulky, but I don't mind it.
The 4 key sticks out a bit and I worry I might brush against it and snap it off.
Windows 8 took a bit to get used to, but that isn't about the laptop.
The page didn't specify, but it is an Ivy Bridge 22nm CPU.
The turbo only really seems to go to 2.8GHz.
