In the hunt for a budget laptop that will help you write that paper, binge those Netflix shows, and do all the the processor heavy-functions a contemporary computer needs to do? Then the Dell Inspiron 7000 is your godsend. With the 13 and 15-inch models providing near identical specs, the Windows-based PC comes with a touchscreen,  a back-lit keyboard, and a face recognition camera (typing in your password is so 2012…). At under $800, the all metal notebook is a rarity in the affordable computer market.

Dell Inspiron 7000 Review

Equipped with a 1920-by-1080 screen, you won’t have to choose money in your wallet over pixels on your device. With 256gb of on-board storage available and 8gb of RAM, the Inspiron 7000 performs well and won’t easily be bogged down by applications. A good investment for those who need to computer to get general tasks done, the hardware is not what you would expect from a PC in the price range. Did we mention the camera sees in 3D, making its face recognition software as comparably secure as some of the hottest tablets currently on the market.

Cnet reported that the laptop does have some flaws, mainly concerning battery life. Only capable of 4-6 hours of heavy use, the Inspiron 7000 is underwhelming in that category. Coupled with a too reflective screen and a poorly placed power-button, this computer has some rough edges expected for it’s value. At $749.99, it’s still a diamond-in-the-rough when it comes to the PC market.
