Dell has launched new Gen laptops, Dell Inspiron 15 5000 5567 in the Indian market which is aimed at students and executives. Dell claims that the laptop is suitable for work, education and the entertainment needs – All in one package.
The laptop offers a 15.6 inch FHD (1920 x 1080) LED-Backlit Display, good for reading and multimedia experience. Though a 15 inch screen would not be as portable as a 12 inch or 13 inch.
The key highlight for the laptop is that it comes with latest Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake processors. The base models comes with Intel Core i5 processor clocked up to 3.1 GHz whereas the premium models have Intel Core i7 Processor which clocked to 3.5 GHz.
Dell Inspiron comes preloaded with Windows 10 Home 64 Bit. It also comes with Microsoft Office and McAfee anti-virus 15 month subscription. The RAM ranges from 4 GB (DDR4 2400 MHz) in the base model to 16 GB (DDR4 2400 MHz) in the most expensive model.
There is enormous storage options for high end user with ability to store movies and Games and your favourite serials with the 2 TB HDD.
Something which can irk some power users, is lack of any model with an SSD, since there is only SATA Hard Drive (5400 RPM), not as quick as an SSD.
AMD Radeon R7 Graphics card (R7 445) with up to 4 GB DDR 5 Graphic Memory makes it an ideal choice for all those who might like to use it for gaming or video / image editing, using the Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Premier Pro.
There is DVD drive (don’t know who uses it anymore), 1 USB 2.0 port, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 HDMI ports and a SD card reader slot too. There is a backlit keyboard for all those who like working late night and a 2 tuned speakers with Waves MaxxAudio® Pro for better sound performance.
The battery is 42 WHr, Prismatic 3-Cell Battery which should be good enough to keep things at charge for an average user.
The company claims that the laptop is thin at just 23.3 mm thickness which makes more portable compared to similar 15.6 inch machines. The laptop will come in white, blue, Grey, black and Red color options.
The Laptop price at Rs. 64,450 and it is a decent offering with the discrete graphic card & new Core i5 Kaby Lake Processor and 4 GB Graphics card. There is also a base model priced at 57K which comes with 2 GB Graphics card.
The Core i7 model is priced close to Rs. 68,000 in India and if the price difference is low between i7 and i5, it will be a better bet to go with the i7 model.
