The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 W06MX has recently been released and is yet another option for both power users and gamers looking for something that can keep up with there high demands when it comes to performance and all of this packed into a 15.6 inch design which is still somewhat mobile friendly. Below we will see what some of the benefits and downsides are if you choose to purchase this laptop and hopefully help you make the right choice.
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB of RAM
Storage: 2 TB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
For users who need to do more than just basic tasks with their laptop having adequate performance is a big deal and that is one area that the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 W06MX does very well. It comes with a top of the line processor in the Intel Core i7 but what really sets it apart is the 16 GB of memory. With most laptops, even higher end models 8 GB tends to be the common amount so having double this makes for a very high performing laptop.
Memory isn’t the only area that this Inspiron model beats out most of the competition as Dell has also included double the amount of storage capacity that you typically find in a new laptop. This laptop features a 2 TB SATA which equals 2000 GB of storage space meaning even the biggest of file savers will have trouble finding enough data to fill up this drive.
With so much high end hardware to power it is surprising what Dell has been able to do with battery life. For those on the go the 10 hours on a single charge will be a huge benefit and far exceeds some of the gaming type rigs that are currently available.
Overall the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 W06MX is a decent option for those on the go often but it is a bit on the heavy side tipping the scales at 2.3 Kg. This isn’t an absurd weight but is heavy if you were to compare to some other highly portable options available. That being said most of these more portable options lack the high end hardware included here so there is a very valid reason for the extra weight.
For some this is actually a positive but for those that have moved on from physical media the inclusion of an optical drive is unnecessary and could have made the overall weight of the device much less by skipping on this older technology.
The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 W06MX feels like a laptop that should be priced much higher then it is when you compare the high end hardware that is included with some of the competition. While it might not be the lightest and slimmest model available it is still decently portable with very impressive specs. This model will be a must buy for many gamers and power users over the coming months.
