This is not a high-tech review with a bunch of four dollar words that many of us don’t understand anyway. If that is what you are looking for, you can find those everywhere online. This is a down to earth review of bare facts and opinions from a guy who wants to let others know what he thinks about his new laptop. I am a published writer and website owner, and this review is based on the facts as I have found them since purchasing my new laptop.
Recently, one of my sons stepped on my laptop and shattered the screen. I was pretty upset with him, since all my online affiliation work was done with that computer. Now I had to go through the grueling task of comparing laptop after laptop, website after website. So, I went shopping at Amazon and I finally make my choice:
As soon as I took the computer out of the box, I noticed how thin and sleek it was. It was much lighter than my old laptop, and the touch screen was thinner as well. I really like the 15-inch size, because it is convenient and portable while still allowing me ample screen space for working, gaming or watching movies. One of my favorite features of the 5000 Series is the design emphasis on more screen and less bezel (frame). This allows your attention to be drawn more to the brilliant display and less to the bulkiness that many laptops bring. I really like the fact that the Inspiron 15 5000 is designed to be impressive. The dark gray finish of the exterior is matched up with a very smooth matte black interior which offers a very professional, attractive appearance that looks great in any setting. It’s kind of like a sports car… it just looks cool!
The weight of this laptop is only 4.85 pounds, so it is very easy to move around. The battery life is about 4 hours of very heavy uses. I am not sure if that’s good or bad, but it works well for me.
Flexibility at its finest
With its impressive and innovative 360-degree state of the art hinge, the Inspiron 5000 series 2-in-1 makes it easy for you to switch through four different modes. The tent mode is excellent for reading off recipes in the kitchen (I cook a lot). If you like to watch movies on the airplane, the standing mode gives ease and stability. Writing your novel couldn’t be easier in the laptop mode, and the tablet mode makes gaming fun and easy.
No matter what your need is, the Inspiron 5000 is there for you. With it, you have the perfect blend of performance and portability. 40% more viewable aria from its 15.6” display, the Inspiron 15 5000 offers a more desirable picture than its 13.3” competitors. Now there is more room for your spreadsheets, and a better picture for your movies!
Stunning sound and vision
Each Inspiron 5000 comes with Waves MaxxAudio Pro audio and available Intel UHD graphics 620 with shared graphics memory… I am not sure if that’s good or not, but I do know that everything I do looks and sounds excellent! My son David loves his video games, and ever since I let him play on my Inspiron 15 5000, he has been begging me for one just like it. He said the video and audio were better than on any other computer he has ever used.
The standard backlit keyboard makes it easier to work in dim environments and the Infrared Camera (one of my favorite features) works with ‘Windows Hello’ to log you in with quick and secure facial recognition. It takes about five seconds to turn on the computer and get logged on. I have never seen a faster computer. Way cool!
My bottom line…
I love this computer! When I start it up, it is online in seconds, and it is so easy to use. The Bluetooth features and the backlit keyboard make it so easy to do my network affiliation work, and if I need a break, the video and audio quality is very impressive. If I had to buy another computer right now, it would be the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 2-in-1 all over again. Yes, in my opinion, it’s that good!
