Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 review: The do-it-all multimedia laptop

New look, new specs. The Inspiron 16 Plus 7610 is barely a year old, but the newer Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 brings enough changes inside and out that performance hunters, and content creators may want to take notice.

The 2022 Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 directly succeeds the 2021 Inspiron 16 Plus 7610 by introducing 12th gen CPUs and faster GeForce RTX GPUs to replace the 11th gen CPUs on last year’s model. The manufacturer has even revised the chassis for a different look after just a year in the market for the series.

Our test unit comes configured with the Alder Lake-H Core i7-12700H CPU, 65 W GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, and 16:10 3072 x 1280 IPS display for approximately $1400. Other SKUs with the Core i5-12500H, 60 W RTX 3060, and 1920 x 1200 touchscreen are also available. A 2-in-1 version of the model exists called the Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 2-in-1.

Competitors in this space include another midrange to high-end 16-inch multimedia or creator laptops like the Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7Huawei MateBook D 16Acer Swift XAsus Vivobook Pro 16X, or even the MSI Creator Z16.
