Just because it is an Inspiron doesn’t mean it needs to be a budget model, The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series D05D6 offers many of the features and hardware you would expect to find in a much more expensive laptop option while still being reasonably priced. Power users who don’t have tons of cash to burn on a new laptop will love this option as a way to get performance without breaking the bank. Below we will look at some of the most noticeable benefits and downsides to this device and see just how well it stacks up.
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen; 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
As we mentioned above you will find some high end hardware included in the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series D05D6 starting with the processor. It is common knowledge when it comes to processing power the Intel Core i7 rises above the rest and that is exactly what you will find here. With this high end processor and 8 GB of memory you end up with a laptop that is very capable of handling the workload of even the most demanding of users.
If gaming is something that you want to do from time to time the AMD Radeaon graphics card is ready to handle the intensive graphics of today’s modern games. This graphics card comes with 4 GB of dedicated memory unlike some of the basic cards you will find in many other laptops in this price range which share memory.
With a full sized 15.6 inch display this laptop is great for entertainment no matter if it is gaming like we mentioned above or streaming the latest much watch show. When it comes to serious work having the full sized display is a great advantage as well and if this is still not enough the HDMI port allows you to quickly plug in an external monitor or even large TV to get an even bigger display.
The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series D05D6 is a bit on the heavy side even for a full sized laptop. Part of the reason for this is the fact they have left the optical drive intact unlike other models which strip this out to save weight and slim down the laptop. At 2.2 Kg it isn’t the worse option available but is heavier then some of the ultra portable laptops currently on the market.
It is difficult to put this as a downside since it is average more than anything but the 8 hours of battery life isn’t going to blow anybody away and for those road warriors may not be quite enough.
When using the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series D05D6 you do really feel like you are getting more than you paid for, mainly due to the high end processor and above average graphics card. It really looks like Dell has another winner with this latest Inspiron model.
