Dell Firelord - gaming laptop without the price tag
The new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (Firelord 7567), distributed by Drive Control Corporation (DCC), continues to offer excellent gaming at a fraction of the cost, with the recommended retail price ranging between R17 999 and R26 999, depending on the laptop configuration.
With the Firelord 7567, Dell has built on last year's popular Pandora 7559, providing a laptop that enables resellers to offer a very capable product to a PC gaming marketplace.
The Dell Firelord 7567 also represents the company's most aggressive performance design and components in the Inspiron laptop family, packed with features such as Intel's latest 7th Generation quad core CPUs and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050Ti discrete graphics and 4GB of dedicated GDDR5 RAM.
To further optimise the gaming experience, the laptop offers dedicated forward and rearward thermal vents, extra-capacity heat exchangers connected by over-sized piping to dual cooling fans, and a high-efficiency blade pitch, engineered to handle the Intel CPUs.
"With the Firelord 7567, Dell confirms its commitment to the PC gaming market. We're very excited to offer this product to the channel that we believe offers additional revenue streams in a potentially lucrative market. Often, users would like to start gaming, but find it just too expensive; with the Firelord, this is no longer the case," comments Heinrich Pretorius, Dell EMC consumer product specialist at DCC.
The Dell Firelord 7567 offers the following additional features:
* Rich, immersive audio complements the experience thanks to an on-board subwoofer, tailored speaker enclosures and Waves MaxxAudio Pro audio processing;
* A deep-reserve 74WHr (watt hours) battery for extreme binge watching;
* 802.11ac wireless, Gig-E RJ-45 network port, SD media card reader and USB 3.0 port; and
* Windows 10 Single Language.
