There is no denying todays world of laptops is bigger than the world of PCs, meaning the Chromebook and hybrid market is falling into the hands of students and creatives, respectively. Even powerhouses, like gaming laptops, are on the rise for the “fun addict”, just as business notebooks are right in line with the elite professional. In efforts to maintain a rewarding selection of the everyday/everybody type-of-computer, Dell now has new offerings from its Inspiron line, with updates including brand-spakin’ new chips and graphics. The particular mid-range laptop, the Dell Inspiron 15 5575, may appear to be another offering in the gigantic ocean that is Intel laptops, except for the fact that this new laptop has both new Ryzen processors and graphics inside.
The Inspiron 15 5575 features an 0.89 x 14.6 x 10.1 inch body, and a weight of 4.89 pounds, with a 15.6-inch FHD Anti-Glare LED-Backlit LCD screen. Although made from plastic, this near five-pound machine won’t give you the crook and flex movement and sound of other laptops. It’s sturdy, and made with that aluminum-matte finish Dell keeps us comfortable with. Having said that, there are two options of color, both Licorice Black or Platinum Silver, which is a little bit out of the ordinary, so perhaps Dell wanted the 5575 to stand out, perhaps as more alluring.
Available in both a touch and non-touch version, were focusing on the non-touch, which starts at $629.99 (per Dell’s website). This model comes with AMD’s Ryzen 5 2500U Mobile CPU processor (base clock at 2.0GHz, and max boost clock of 3.6GHz), and Radeon Vega 8 Graphics. This is the most recent of Ryzen processors, providing surefire performance, and quick response rates with that great GPU. Memory includes from 8GB up to 32GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage. Pre-installed with Windows 10 Home, there are added media benefits, such as Dell’s CinemaSound (used with Waves MaxxAudio Pro for studio-quality sound), and CinemaStream’s SmartByte for channeling seamless, maximum bandwidth. Talk about an entertainment value package!
For I/O, ports and slots include a 3-in-1 SD card reader, one USB 2.0, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A port, a USB 3.1 port, an optical drive, security cable slot, power port, HDMI port, Ethernet, and audio jack. Besides enough peripheral connectivity options, this model is rugged for real life circumstances, which are bound to happen here and there. Enjoy your Dell for years, and you can, thanks to Inspiron’s overall resilience to short-term heat exposure, a quality hinge for those thousands of to-and-fro movements, plus an able-bodied, inherent keyboard and touchpad.
Although the nearly five pounds the Inspiron 15 5575 machine weighs might seem hefty, as mentioned previously, there’s always a solution to consumers’ needs. Some won’t mind the weight, despite the thin and light phenomenon of laptop popularity today. This is because when it comes to Dell laptops, the company knew how to skim off just enough weight, whilst sustaining good build and design quality. Hence, this is a compact package, with seismic storage, where buyers can decide their storage options to their needs. Plus, we can’t complain at all that the Dell Inspiron 15 5575 has Ryzen and Radeon internal hardware, as this is going to cater to some indulgences consumers love, such as fast graphics and display quality, not to mention frames per second if watching media. With up to 16GB DDR4 memory, all for sustained high performance (“revolutionary performance”, as Dell mentions), enjoy seamlessly running multiple apps and tabs- a pro multitasker! Finally, consumers can resume all-day work and play with their new Inspiron laptop’s 42Whr 3-cell battery. Prices start $629.99 for the non-touch version, and just 20 dollars more for touch, at $649.99.
