That is a idiotic benchmark and don't use that for comparing because I have seen when they don't have proper score available, they update that processor with some garbage ratings. Check some real benchmarks like GeekBench, 3D mark, Cinebench etc. It is more than 40% powerful than 7200U.

Looks very solid. Like that it's a 7 series also. Does this charge with type c cord or will normal dell power adapter? Battery life anyone? Need at least 7 to 10 hours real world use

You won't get that much battery life for budget Inspiron series. Not sure abut Type-C charging but but as per the description in product page, looks like it supports.

From where are you getting that roughly 20% rating? Please do enlighten us rather than Lol? The link I have given stating that it actually performs better than current 45W TDP based i5-7300HQ. So better provide correct information rather than posting just for the sake of posting.
And Tax carries upon states, so the exact amount can never be added in a deal. It is clearly mentioned that Tax in most states.

That's Intel's marketing claim. I doubt a typical user will see anywhere near that kind of result in normal use.

The Benchmarks are done by Notebookcheck.net, not Intel and per that, it is sometimes over the performance of 45W TDP i5-7300HQ. It beats all the haswell based 45W Quad Core i7s like i7-4700HQ or 4702HQ.
And by normal usage, you don't see any difference between a 15W i7-7500U Dual Core and a 45W Quad Core i7-7700HQ processor while doing normal day to day tasks like browsing, streaming or documentation, does that mean i7-7700HQ is also a marketing gimmick.?
This 15W TDP Quad Core basically provides users a lot of flexibility. Now you can have an Ultra portable Notebook with the power of a workhorse which can do a lot of intensive works. You don't need two separate devices for separate type of works.

Calm down. Open your link look at single core processing compared to i5-6th gen its 21% faster

That is a huge huge difference for a single core and you did not understand that??? Ohh ho! Check the single core performance of 15W i7-7500U and 45W i7-7700HQ and you will find that they actually perform similar. 20% increase in just single core performance is huge improvement, specially when the thermal limit is same as 15W. Til now, from one gen to next gen, the performance increase was merely 5%-7%.

So rather than asking me to cool down, you better start studying Process architecture so that you can comment properly. That will save us from your lame posts.

Sorry for being a bit rude. But try to understand that this processor has two extra physical cores and 4 extra threads. So when you will be running CPU intensive applications like Video Encoding, Editing, rendering which can scale through all available cores, this particular processor can beat the hell out of a 7th Gen Dual Core processor because each of the extra 2 cores will be performing 15% or more than the each core of the 7th Gen processors.
This will give users a lot of flexibility for the type of works you can perform. You can have a 13" ultra portable with good battery life and can be carried everywhere with ease for day to day tasks and when required, you can do some heavy works without the need of a 15" heavy quad core Laptop.
