1080p screen only on a gaming lappy ?? Watch the original DOOM in HD !! Whoa.

Too high a price for this screen.

Screen res isn't as big a concern for me.  If I want to do serious gaming I'll hook up an external monitor.

The GeForce 1050Ti is on the middle low end of gaming performance.  Not terrible, but I'll hold out for a deal with the 1060 or 1070.

Inspiron 7567 display vs Omen 15t display
The 1920x1080 resolution is good, however the display quality is very poor, and as such I tend to recommend people to steer clear of buying this laptop. I think you will find the difference between a good quality display and a not-so-good one to be one of the most noticeable spec-based differences, and in particular a low quality display can be considered to defeat some of the purpose of buying a 'gaming' laptop: to make games look good. Thus, while it may feel intuitive to see the specs as good for the price, and to see this as a good value, the value is not very good in my opinion, because in the end it's a higher-priced laptop with a poor display, one of the absolute most noticeable components.

Last year's Inspiron 7000 used both a good GPU and a good display -- the two things that arguably contribute most to making games look good. To my understanding those two components were a big part of why it was commonly heralded as the king of $800 gaming laptops. The new Inspiron does not have a good display, and that fundamentally alters its tier in the market.

The models I recommend for around this price are:
- $699: HP Pavilion Power 15t, http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/Laptops/hp-power-pavilion-laptop--... (price changes over time, check back later or look for coupons if it's not that cheap now)
- $799: HP Omen 15t, http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/omen-laptop---15t-x7r21av-1 (price changes over time, check back later or look for coupons if it's not that cheap now)
- $899: Eluktronics N850HK1, https://www.amazon.com/Eluktronics-N850HK1-Premium-Performance-Laptop/dp/B06X6BB9F7/ (even better display than the Pavilion/Omen)

Also a final note: This assumes you're looking at the FHD models. Don't get the 4K models of any of these three laptops. They're great for FHD, but the 4K versions/configs use PenTile not-true-4K displays, something commonly regarded to be a deceptive marketing practice. If you want 4K, the Inspiron 7567 4K (ironcially) and Dell XPS 4K do 4K right. See this: https://www.reddit.com/r/Dell/comments/5jiwcg/psa_the_4k_uhd_3840x2160_displays_in_the_inspiron/
