With the QHD+ display, Dolby Vision and HDR content’s impressive dynamic range add even more to the overall visuals. View and interact with the display in multiple ways, as the Dell Inspiron 17 7706 has four modes: Tent, Stand, Laptop, and Tablet. Users can easily switch between each mode. The hinges are flexible yet sturdy. There is a keyboard with silver backlit keys that emit the right amount of light –not too dim or too bright.
