These reviews must be fake because my experience has been totally the opposite. I have no issues with keyboards or trackpads or heating or anything else. This laptop is a beast and works brilliantly as expected. I have used it on the most intense games like msfs 2020 with no issues and similarly on some huge spreadsheets which it handles seamlessly. It's the best value around in terms of gaming plus normal PC grunt and the best laptop I've owned. Finally, cosmetically it looks the part.

Erratic malfunctioning trackpad, and a keyboard that misses keystrokes randomly. This is the nicest-looking 1,400.00 paperweight I have ever bought. Stay away!

Don't buy this laptop. It has a serious touchpad issue. Heating problems etc. Dell support stopped responding to me and didn't even send me a replacement saying it's out of stock.

Please don't buy this laptop - it will bring you heartache and grief. There is a serious defect with the touchpad. Sometimes it will work for a few hours, then it will be mostly unresponsive and erratic. Search the Internet, many users and complaining about this issue. Unless you don't use the touchpad and always have a mouse, the Inspiron 16 Plus is not fit for purpose. Dell should perform a recall (or offer to fix/replace all defective units).

I've had a lot of trouble with this laptop. It randomly shut down several times throughout the day, and the trackpad would randomly stop working. I got a replacement computer through Dell, but the second computer only worked for a few hours, then it stopped turning on at all. I ended up getting a refund and going with a different laptop altogether. I really wanted this to work, as it has every feature I could want in a beautiful package, but all of that doesn't matter if the basics don't work.

I stretched my budget in order to get the reliability of a Dell instead of an HP or Lenovo. I couldn't afford an XPS and thought the Inspiron 16 Plus 7610 would be a solid alternative. I'm not a gamer and primarily use my laptop for home and home business requirements, and I travel a fair amount. Unfortunately, after spending nearly 20 hours on the phone and online with their New Customer support group (Ronaldo was terrific!) the first unit Dell sent to me immediately started to randomly shut down for no reason. The touchpad didn't work properly and one of the fans didn't work. Two in-home tech visits later, I sent it back for a replacement. When the new one arrived, Ronaldo was again a huge help getting me set up. Thankfully, the second laptop isn't randomly shutting down, and the fans all seem to work. HOWEVER, after only a few days, the touchpad on this one is also a problem. Often, the cursor won't move or is very herky-jerky. It also doesn't do well with small movements and will 'vibrate'. Screens and websites will randomly open or close as I move the cursor across the screen. The left and right buttons sometimes require multiple clicks before the computer responds, and scrolling is often difficult. As much as I like the features of the Inspiron 16 Plus 7610, if they can't get the touchpad issues resolved quickly, I will send back this laptop, get my money back and have to look for something else.
