Dell"s range of Inspiron laptops has been around for what feels lượt thích eons, so was about time the line was refreshed with more recent, superior hãng intel hardware. This 2018 laptop remains an attractive computer, too, with a brushed metal finish across the lid.


Immediately, the metallic lid & attractive Dell hình ảnh sản phẩm make a strong first impression, và the aesthetic spreads lớn the sides & base, where more metal is layered over the Dell’s plastic skeleton to địa chỉ a bit of sheen.

Here is the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 configuration sent to for review:

CPU: 2.4GHz Intel chip core i7-5500U (dual-core, 4MB cache, up to 3GHz with Turbo Boost)
Graphics: AMD Radeon R7 M265RAM: 8GB DDR3Screen: 15.6-inches, 1,366 x 768, non-touch
Storage: 1TB HDD 5,400RPMOptical drive: NoPorts: 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0, bộ combo audio jack, HDMI, SD thẻ reader 
Connectivity: Intel Dual-Band Wireless – AC 7260, Gigabit Ethernet, công nghệ bluetooth 4.0Camera: 720p Webcam 
Weight: 4.4 pounds (2kg) 
Size: 0.9 x 13.6 x 9.6-inches, 23 x 345 x 243mm (H x W x D)

Build chất lượng is very consistent, too. The wrist-rest barely budges, the screen feels sturdy, & the underside has a little give – but all the components inside are well protected. We wouldn’t really have a problem with slinging the Dell Inspiron 15 inside a backpack and expecting it to survive our travels. You’ll only need to use a protective sleeve if you’re concerned about aesthetic damage.

This isn"t a particularly expensive notebook, though, so don"t expect metal draped over every surface. The underside of the base is only covered in metal on areas where it"ll be visible, and the keyboard, wrist-rest & screen bezel are all finished with underwhelming màu đen nhám plastic.

The port situation is pretty standard here, too, with a trio of USB connections, a HDMI output và Gigabit Ethernet alongside an SD card reader. Interior access is decent: the base panel lifts away after just two screws have been removed, & the memory, hard drive, battery, processor and wireless card are all easily reachable. That’s great news for anyone that wants khổng lồ be able khổng lồ repair or tăng cấp their own laptop.

There"s a typical selection of ports

This isn"t an Ultrabook or a convertible machine, which means it"s chunkier than both of its main rivals. At 0.9in (23mm) thick it"s a tad broader than the 0.78in (20mm) Lenovo ThinkPad X250 và the 0.86in (22mm) asus Transformer Book Flip TP300LA, & it tips the scales at 4.4lbs (2kg) – almost 2lb more than the Lenovo và around half a pound more than the Asus.

The Inspiron 15 is heavier than some rivals


The Scrabble-tile keyboard has a number pad, which is a boon for productivity, và its layout is mostly fine – we"re not thrilled to lớn a see a single-height Return key, but that"s our only quibble.

It’s a decent jumping off point, but the keys themselves aren’t great for serious typing. The base isn’t firm enough, and the keys don’t have enough travel – a combination of issues that can make the keyboard feel unsatisfying, without the movement và conviction of better, more expensive laptops. It’s perfect for browsing, instant messaging và the occasional email, but that’s really it.

The keyboard isn"t designed for serious work

The trackpad is initially too sensitive, which can be fixed in the Control Panel, and it"s fine elsewhere – the surface is smooth and responsive, và the buttons are light và consistent.
