Power and modern designA multimedia machine: Replace your desktop with an elegant laptop packed with performance features that deliver a cinematic media experience. The brushed aluminum Inspiron 17 5000 Series houses a powerful 4th Gen Intel® Core processor, built-in optical drive, full-size HDMI port, USB 3.0 and SD card reader.Thinner and lighter than previous models, this laptop builds on a legacy of great design..
Spacious hard drive: Keep your files at your fingertips with up to 1TB* of storage.
Your home entertainment hubDynamic display: Enjoy a vivid new view with the Inspiron 17’s superior display — the expansive 17.3" screen creates an immersive experience that you won’t want to put down. HD+ offers impressive clarity with 37% more pixels than regular HD screens. Or, opt for Full HD and double the resolution of traditional HD – with over 2 million pixels, you get a truly immersive multimedia experience.
Studio-quality sound: Whether you’re mixing, streaming or chatting, Waves MaxxAudio® delivers lower lows, higher highs and outstanding audio performance.
The forefront of touch technologyChoose the Full HD touch option for a truly interactive experience that maintains amazing detail and crisp, brilliant images. The expansive touch screen gives your fingers plenty of room to explore and complements this laptop’s sleek, modern look.
Your every tap, swipe and scroll is responsive and accurate with a 10-finger capacitive touch screen. Capacitive touch seems more natural and fluid than optical touch because capacitive sensors are right under the screen, compared to optical touch which uses cameras in the bezel of the laptop. Have more fun with Windows 8.1, swipe through your photo album faster and unleash your creativity with capacitive touch.
More features, major impactEasy productivity
Breeze through spreadsheets with a 10-key number pad and zoom, point and scroll through content quickly with the large touchpad.
Built-in DVD drive
Watch movies, load software or burn your favorite playlist with the built-in DVD drive. It's great for storing large volumes of data on DVDs so you can archive files and applications.
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 an Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected.
Always a good fit: You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 30 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
