The laptop comes with a plastic chassis with a design that we’ve seen before, including a rounded-out rear end, which also lifts up the backside, providing more air to the cooling on the bottom. Branding is tasteful, with only a Dell logo on the lid and on the bottom bezel. In terms of weight, the laptop stops the scales at 1.84 kg and has a profile of 19 mm.


The display selection includes a 768p TN display as well as FHD IPS option. The FHD panel sounds pretty good on paper, with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 250 nits max brightness.
