Today we are looking at what seems to be a great budget friendly all around laptop in the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 T5MCG. This laptop features a 15.6 inch screen and with prices of some of the newer laptops soaring provides a very affordable option for those who are unwilling or unable to shell out big money for the latest and greatest technology. Below we will take a bit closer look at this model and see what some of the biggest benefits and downsides are to help you make the choice if it is right for you.
Processor: Intel Pentium
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
One of the areas that the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 T5MCG does surprisingly well when you consider its lower cost plus the fact that it is a full sized laptop is the battery life you can get out of a single charge. The 7 hours may not seem overly impressive when you compare all the laptop models available but you need to keep in mind most of the others that beat out this length also come with much higher price tags. The 7 hours will get some users a full day without needing to charge up which is a great benefit.
If you are moving from an older laptop there is a good chance you already have plenty of data saved that you need to move to this device. With a very large 1 TB hard drive chances are your current data will only fill a fraction of this space available leaving you with more room then you will probably ever need.
With optical drives becoming less and less common it makes it difficult for those of us who still use this media on a regular basis or even just from time to time. Luckily you will still find this technology available on this Inspiron model so reading and writing to physical media such as DVD’s or CD’s is still possible without needing to buy an extra external drive.
One area that is lacking in the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 T5MCG is the lower end processor that comes with it. The 8 GB of memory help somewhat make up for this but it is still not an overly powerful laptop so those that do higher end tasks such as gaming or video editing might find it lacks the horsepower to keep up.
Not surprisingly you are not going to find some of the newer technology in this model that you will find in something more expensive. Things like the ability to convert to multiple modes or touch screen are all lacking from this device.
The Dell Inspiron 15 3000 T5MCG is a great overall laptop for those on a budget and for most consumers provides enough performance and features to tackle the day to day tasks they will be wanting to accomplish.
