2014 and 2015 both saw huge increases in the availability of 4K displays. That availability is continuing to increase in 2016, especially with 4K laptop displays being more and more common. That is made evident by the Dell Inspiron 15 7559, which also boasts a Core i7-6700HQ, 16GB RAM and a GTX 960M graphics chip all for just £999.
Of course, you are very unlikely to be gaming at 4K with the included GTX 960M, as it simply does not have the power to push a 4K display. With a laptop, you will want a GTX 980M before you even start to think about 4K gaming. Still, we analyse the Inspiron 15 7559‘s system, general and gaming performance before giving our verdict as to whether this laptop is worth a purchase.
