Dell Inspiron 17-7746

Dell Inspiron 7746 is a big premium laptop with forged aluminum design and diamond-cut beveled edges. It comes with a 17.3-inch display (optional touchscreen) with Full HD or HD+ resolution and 135-degree operating angle. With 5th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors (i5-5200U or i7-5500U), it’s ready to provide powerful performance and long battery life. The Broadwell processors have Intel HD Graphics 5500. You can combine it with optional nVidia GeForce 845M with 2GB GDDR5 graphics memory. At this moment, there is no information about what storage options are available. On Dell website, I have only found 1 TB 5400 rpm hybrid hard drive + 8 GB cache option. Of course there are some other storage options available. Using DDR3L memory technology and equipped two SODIMM connectors, users can upgrade the main memory up to 16 GB.
