Dell Inspiron 7577 – the 7567 gets upgraded : GTX 1060 6GB, Thunderbolt 3, IPS display

Dell 7577
Dell announced the new Inspiron 7577. It’s an upgrade to their midrange Inspiron 7567 (review), a successor to the popular 7559 (GTX 960M). The new 7577 comes with the much faster Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB GPU (optional?), an IPS as a default (guess: basic IPS), and a Thunderbolt 3 USB-C port. The battery is sharnk to a 4-cell 56Wh (vs 74Wh), default Wifi upgraded to 2×2 module. CPU options will remain the 7th generation I5-7300HQ or I7-7700HQ for now, perhaps until the 35W 8th generation Coffee Lake parts are released. Price will start at $999 (probably before tax and also before discounts). It’s not clear to me whether the stated price is for the GTX 1060 6GB variant or the GTX 1050 Ti variant.

This move makes sense and was actually already been taken by Acer and Lenovo. The 7567 competes in the GTX 1050 Ti laptops section and costs $750-$900 typically, before tax. The 7567 is a relatively a good option compared to the weak competition in its section. However, currently, cheaper GTX 1060 gaming laptops deliver a lot more for almost the same price. These are the Acer Helios 300 (link), the Lenovo Y720 (link), and the Clevo N850HP6  (link) – all of them can be found for $900-$1100 typically and are equipped with a GTX 1060 6GB GPU an I7 and some extra feature, like an IPS display, Thunderbolt 3, or better thermals.

So, laptops like the 7567 were a somewhat harder choice – you got a significantly lower performance (around 35-45% on average) and only saved $100-$200 at best (around 20%), also letting go of an IPS display and perhaps some connection ports. That’s probably why Dell is following its competitors and adding a cheaper option with a GTX 1060.

We might review it when it comes out.

    • Manufacturers and companies care about maximizing profit, mostly.

      Yes, sometimes there is a white glow from the edges. That’s the usual stuff – many IPS panels are currently like that. Yes, this is common

      But you shouldn’t use 100% brightness almost never!

      • Humza Iqbal

        ahhh tension released ok IPS panel are like this nature its OK now , yeah normally used 50 to 70 % on brightness mostly

    I kinda regret getting the i7 1080P 1050Ti 7567 Win10Pro (with some upgrades) but at the same time I’m happy with it :), I got my laptop since January 19, 2017

    my laptop cost me $950 plus $19 for 8260AC WiFi, plus $65 for IPS, plus $480 for 960 EVO 1TB which equals to $1,514 (just an idea how much mine cost including upgrades)

    the 7577 is a kinda big improvement over the 7559/7567 but now the only weakness to the 7577 is the smaller battery and added the weight (for the 1060MQ gpu model)

    • $950 is a rather high price for the 7567!
      Anyway, if you are ok with the performance, it should be good for quite some time! And SSD can move with you to the next laptop

      • AirRookie

        yea but it’s not the $800 base model, mine is the i7-7700HQ

        GTX 1050Ti higher end model with the Discount, I’m happy with my laptop because it will last a long time for me and the build quality is excellent 🙂

        • Great!

          I’m using a much much slower laptop (-:

    I am still happy with my 7559, thermals are awsome with the 3 heatpipe and i5. I can even play passive with the FPS limiter build in the nVidia driver. These “upgraded” versions feels cheap compared to 7559. All I miss is the 1060 chip and USB 3.1

    • If you are fine with the performance, then no need to upgrade!
      Gaming is not about having the highest FPS!

    7577 will launch next yr probaly

    • Should be available on the September 12th according to Anandtech
