If your old laptop is ready to give up the ghost but you’re not convinced those fancy new 2-in-1 laptop/tablet convertibles are ready for prime time (I’m not convinced, either), the Dell Inspiron i7559-2512BLK 15.6 Inch FHD Laptop (UK visitors click here) is a machine that packs a lot of speed, memory and power into an affordable, stylish, lightweight black and graphite package with red accents. It features a quad core Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor running at 2.6 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M performance graphics card with 4GB GDDR5 discrete memory for high-def gaming, video streaming or video editing, backlit keyboard, Waves MaxxAudio Pro tuned audio with performance speakers and a built-in subwoofer, and a new thermal cooling design with two cooling fans, three exhausts and large vents with 240 thermal fins. Currently rated 4/5 stars and priced at $800 in this configuration.
