BLACK FRIDAY DELL BUYING GUIDE
Do you want to play the latest PC games without feeling like you’re playing a stuttery slideshow but you don’t really have a lot of cash? Well this is good news, it can be done but the question is just how many corners are you willing to cut? Dell says you can get a great gaming experience for as little £800 on their new blaring red Inspiron 15 7000 by putting pretty much all the money into a new Nvidia 1050 graphics card and skimping on the CPU display. Another feature is the Nvidia 1050 is a great budget graphics card. The 1050 Ti (£900) step-up model is even better. Even games like Battlefield 1 play great on a full HD resolution and a high detail setting. But that does not mean this is an automatic buy. First the screen just does not look great. It is washed out and has terrible off-axis viewing angles if you move your head just a little bit. The touchpad feels cheap, so you will probably want to just plug in a mouse most of the time. The smallish hard drive really only has room for maybe 4 full-size games at a time. For a longer-term investment, I suggest spending a bit more in getting a better processor, better display and bigger hard drive. But you are looking at maybe another £400 to do this. If you cannot break that £1000 barrier, this is an excellent choice for a Black Friday gaming laptop, for not a lot of money. It gets our enthusiastic but qualified recommendation!
