The Dell Inspiron 7577 is Dell’s previous generation top midrange gaming laptop and for this price it’s a steal. For around $670-$720 (depends on the configuration), this machine comes with an I5-7300HQ, an Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB Max-Q, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 1080p IPS display and Thunderbolt 3.

The GTX 1060 Max-Q performance (link) is almost as good as the non-Max-Q variants and is much better than the GTX 1050 Ti GPU (link), so it’s pretty good and you probably won’t get any better than that for $700 until next generation of GPUs from AMD or Nvidia. According to reviews, thermals are pretty good, with the CPU temperatures remaining under 70C even for highest load, chassis temperatures high mostly in the middle but not unlike other models, which is acceptable.

Equipped with a thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1gen2, the connection ports selection of the 7577 is rather good.

Display quality is typical for current under $1000 gaming laptops selection, which means you get a basic IPS with low color palette coverage, limited brightness and ok contrast. No PWM is in use, which is good (no flickering).

Bottom line, if you can get it from Dell’s outlet in time, then that’s a good deal. Competition for $700 usually comes with a GTX 1050 Ti and a lot more extra features, if at all.

Actually, I wasn’t planning to get a new laptop but for some reason, I received an email ONLY about this deal so I checked it out and both the price and performance seems pretty good. Few years back you suggested me the Lenovo Y510p and I’m still using it, it’s working fine but I’ve always wanted something that gives me better fps on games (I play a lot of Ark Survival) and less throttling problems. Though I was able to play most games without throttling problems with throttlestop and undervolting GPU. Also, I don’t like SLI as some games don’t… Read more »

Yeah, it’s already 4 years old. It’s durable too , no problems except a HDD failure but I switched to a ssd after (I have my computer on almost 24/7).

I can wait for sure but is $695 + $65 tax a good price for a refurbished Dell 7577?

I’m not sure how good egpu is, heard that they are unstable sometimes. Have you tried any of em and got good recommendations?

Thanks! I feel like I should just buy a desktop instead if I have to buy a new laptop + eGPU. Not too sure yet, I’ll look more into it. Your Acer Predator Helios 300 review videos are pretty good though, makes me really interested in this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834316212&cm_re=helios_300-_-34-316-212-_-Product

It’s $758.84 with coupon including tax on dell’s online store, seems like a good deal to me, but should I consider this if I hate throttling problems?
