An authorized Dell seller on eBay is currently offering a well-equipped laptop with a large display at a low price. At first glance, the notebook is perfect for use in the home office – but is it really worth buying? GIGA clears up!
The corona crisis continues – and with it the home office. Many people currently work from home, but the right equipment is missing in some households. Fortunately, eBay is currently offering the Dell Inspiron 3793, a current laptop with a large screen that offers massive performance at a low price. Just 699 euros are due for the 17.3-inch laptop with i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD and MX230 graphics chip. But if you want to secure one of the devices, you should be quick. There are only a few left.

- Work memory: 16 GB DDR4-2666 (two bars, each 8 GB)

Product assessment: Well
Many of the technical data of the Dell Inspiron read really very well. A current i7 processor, a lot of RAM and such a large SSD and a graphics chip from Nvidia can never be found in devices in this price category. 700 euros for this hardware is a real hit! However, we cannot fully recommend the laptop. Weighing around 3 kilograms, the device is a real chunk, you are not really mobile with it. The battery does the rest here. The capacity of 42 Wh turns out to be extremely low, so that the Dell Inspiron will probably run out of steam even after a few hours away from the socket, even in energy-saving mode.
Another shortcoming: We could not find any information about the installed panel from the dealer. So it is quite possible that it is a TN display that shows neither colors nor contrasts particularly crisp. After all, Windows 10 in the Pro version is already pre-installed on the laptop and the graphics card is enough to play a less graphically demanding game like Rocket League or League of Legends. In addition, there is also an SD card reader and a DVD drive installed, which is not seen so often these days.
Deal assessment: Very g
The hardware array of the Dell Inspiron for a price of just 699 euros is absolutely amazing. For such a powerful laptop, you usually have to put a lot more on the table. But you can still see that savings have been made in other places. The size of the battery and the weight of the notebook ensure that you should rather pinch the use on the go. However, the device is always suitable as a mobile workstation with massive performance. And if you always have the laptop in operation on your desk at the socket, you won’t mind either.
An incredible deal for anyone who knows about the weaknesses of the system.
