Unlike the XPS series, owners of the Inspiron 15 7000 have a more restricted choice when it comes to skins. You’re going to have a difficult time locating premium skins that will fit the laptop without having to do a little trimming yourself or filling oneself with regret after ordering a skin too small to cover the lid.

Our pick



DecalGirl

Well-made, offer protection, and look great.

DecalGirl doesn’t produce skins that match the dimensions of the Inspiron 15 7000, but can trim available designs to meet the dimensions supplied by you before checking out. This will ensure you can simply apply the decal once delivered to the notebook without issue.

Who should buy this skin?

DecalGirl is a great place to start looking at notebook skins. The company’s catalog of designs is perfect for everyone who wants to keep their Dell Inspiron 15 7000 looking fresh. After applying one of these skins, you’ll be able to worry less about scratches, dents, and other knocks.

Showcase just how good your Inspiron 15 7000 is with a skin.

The best part about ordering a skin from DecalGirl is the opportunity to supply dimensions of your Inspiron 15 7000 lid. While not officially supporting the laptop from Dell, it’s possible to match the dimensions of your lid with the ordered skin, allowing you to apply the wrap immediately without delay in having to trim the edges.

Skins are a simple, easy-to-apply layer of protection that requires some patience and a steady hand to get the end result looking as intended by the designers. After installing a skin onto the lid of the Inspiron 15 7000, you’ll not only have a refreshed looking laptop, but also one that should look just as good for longer.

Bottom line

It’s difficult to locate a premium skin for the Inspiron 15 7000 simply because not many of the leading providers have skins cut for Dell’s mid-range laptop. DecalGirl doesn’t have any skins tailor-made for the Inspiron 15 7000, but the company does allow for you to specify dimensions before ordering to get the fit just right.
