    Hi,

    I got an Inspiron 7559 a couple of years ago. I had to replace the screen, because the colors were very off, but the one I bought is better. I mostly use my computer for work (photography, graphic design) and gaming.
    I'm planning to buy a new laptop in 2-3 years and I would like to know if Dell improved the display used in the laptops?

    I saw a G5 review yesterday where they said it was only like 62% sRGB and 47% AdobeRGB colors which is really bad I think.

    What models have good colors and brightness?

    Thank you

    It's hard to answer such a general question. Some models ship with several screens. Sometimes if you get a higher resolution screen there's only one panel model, so you have a better idea of what you'll receive. I would narrow down a list of machines you're considering and then investigate and compare the screen options available.

    If you're a photographer/graphic designer and color accuracy matters a lot to you, perhaps consider investing in a quality monitor for when you're at home.

    Yes, I would sort out which model your really interested in and then custom order it from Dell, ensuring that you're getting the screen you want?

    For all we know in 2 to 3 years when you are looking to upgrade OLED or MicroLED could be more common which would improve colors greatly.

    Generally the inspiron/entry gaming laptops don't have the best colors. I usually find dell displays to be pretty decent but if you want color accuracy, you usually have to pay for it.
