after a month of use UHD Display - 3840x2160 very sharp with no light bleed-through. However, most console mode software still can't handle 3840x2160. After lowering resolution to HD mode (1920x1080), games work better. NVIDIA GPU - Choose default GPU using NVIDIA Control Panel "Manage 3D Setting" or with a right click. Intel GPU is fine for web browsing. Install latest Intel generic video drivers to eliminate minor video glitches. Hard disk - System has empty space for an m.2 SSD (SATA mode, not PCI-Express mode) (22mm by 80mm). Access to innards - Easy! Touchpad - Works well. To disable Touchpad if have a mouse connected, turn off "Leave touchpad on when mouse is connected" in "Mouse and Touchpad" settings in Settings / Devices. Similar option to fully disable Touchpad in Control Panel / "Windows Mobility Center." Keyboard - Works well, though key press travel is limited by chicklet style keyboard. WASD keys play games well. H and J keys get warm when gaming. Palm rest stays cool. Control FN multi-keys and key backlighting through Control Panel / "Windows Mobility Center." Backlighting turns off when if you stop typing for a bit and then restarts when you resume typing. CPU Fan - System fans do not turn on, except when gaming or doing something complex. System fans are noticeable, but not harsh, but will drown out normal speaker volume. An SSD will cut fan use when browsing. Memory - Ships with one 8GB memory chip (single channel DDR3L 1600MHz) with an empty slot for another 8Gb chip (system max is 16GB total). Two chips make system notably faster. Webcam - Uses Win10 "Camera" applet. Pictures are grainy. Microphones - Poor. Picks up system hiss, even with "Dell Audio" settings.

The body looks and feels like Alienware from inside and this is great laptop with excellent configuration. But the display lasted only 10 minutes and it just stopped. Got it replaced with a new laptop and no issues so far. Throw any current generation game at it, just handles it perfect as you expect. I would say, the laptop I received first was just a faulty product, but wouldn't it have been nice if I wasn't shipped a faulty product in first place? You purchase a product with high expectations and anyone would be heart broken to see this happen to their brand new laptop.

Good machine for 3D scan work.
Comments about Dell Inspiron 15 Gray Laptop Computer:
I purchased this machine for the fast i7 CPU and heavy video with lots of video ram to be able to run 3D scan software. This machine was probably designed more for playing games but it works great for my 3D play.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best Value Gaming Laptop
I give this laptop 4 stars, because while I am not in love with it, it offers everything at a great value. Just do 2 things - upgrade the RAM and install a SSD. Those upgrades will add on about $150 to the cost of this laptop, but with those upgrades it's a top performer and is considerably less than the competition. It can run Gears of War 4 on high settings at 1080P. It can also handle it in 4K, but at about 20-25 fps. 4K screen is great for Windows 10. For games, you will need to tone it down to 1080P to get decent framerates around 55-60 fps. This is my first DELL product, and I'm happy with it.
from Chicago, IL
I am a graphic designer, therefore this laptop was ideal for my needs. The monitor size (15.6) is great and the 4K resolution is da bomb! I wouldn't buy it from any other store. Abt has great customer service.

I purchased the laptop about a month ago and use it at both home and work. The 4K screen resolution is amazing and I was able to transfer all my programs from my other laptop without a problem. The laptop is fast and user friendly and I would recommmend.

Great configuration for a much cheaper price!
I purchased this computer as an upgrade from a previous one. It is superbly better with its screen. Pictures come to life. Computer is quiet, powerful, and good battery life.
Fast and great price
This laptop is very fast, I use it for photo and video editing and it handles it all well. I'm not completely wild about the touchpad.
