Dell Inspiron 15-5558 Notebook Review

 

Dark screen. Dell sends a 15.6-inch all-rounder into the fight for buyers' favor with its Inspiron 15-5558. The laptop pleases with an IPS screen that, however, has a much too low brightness. Dell could have been a bit less tightfisted with the GPU.

Matte, high-contrast Full HD IPS screen, Plenty of storage, Barely heats up, 802.11 ac dual-band Wi-Fi, Maintenance cover

Dark screen, Fast Ethernet only, Comparatively low gaming performance

Dell has a 15.6-inch all-round device in its lineup with the Inspiron 15-5558. The installed processor offers enough power for routine use. The GeForce graphics core allows gaming at least to a certain degree. However, we would have expected a stronger...

Dell Inspiron 15-5548 Notebook Review

 

All-rounder. With its stylish design, Dell's 15.6-inch Inspiron 15-5548 all-rounder aims to attract the attention of potential buyers. The hardware equipment is satisfactory. However, Dell should have put more effort in terms of GPU and screen.

Slim, light-weight casing, Aluminum lid, All ports in the rear area of the sides, Decent input devices, Dual-bad Wi-Fi standard 802.11 ac, Maintenance-friendly, Usually quiet operation, Plenty of storage

Viewing angle dependent screen, Fast Ethernet only

Dell has a 15.6-inch all-round laptop in its lineup with the Inspiron 15-5548. It is the Broadwell upgrade of the Inspiron 15-5547. The installed processor has enough computing power for all common application scenarios. The Radeon graphics core allows...

Back to school on a budget: Choosing a cheap laptop to fit your needs

 

We reviewed eight mainstream budget laptops—because "cheap" doesn't have to mean "awful."

Above-average performance ; Case looks like it belongs on a much more expensive laptop

Chintzy screen ; Trackpad precision is subpar

We also examined what third-party software/bloatware came with each laptop. One way manufacturers push down costs on these low-end machines is by laying out deals with software companies: "We'll put your software on our machine so you get more...

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Review

 

Dell raises the bar for build quality and design in a budget laptop with the Inspiron 15 5000. This laptop ($449 as configured) sports an eye-catching, colorful chasssis that just feels more solid than the value-priced competition. The Dell has the...

Attractive, sturdy design; Fast performance; Loud speakers; Very little bloatware

Relatively dim display; Shallow keyboard

The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 offers an alluring design, speedy performance and loud speakers for less than $500.

A good display doesn't redeem Dell's consumer laptop from its myriad failings.

Large, vivid display ; 16GB of memory

Flaky keyboard and trackapd ; Short battery life ; Feels fragile

Dell's budget big-screen laptop looks impressive, but it feels flimsy, has keyboard and trackpad issues, and its battery runs down much too quickly.

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 (2014) Review

 

The Inspiron 15 5000 is a solid 15-inch laptop with a vivid touch screen, but it doesn't do enough to distinguish itself at this price.

Crisp and vivid display; Sleek and solid design; Good multi-tasking capability

Hot underside; Below-average battery life

The Inspiron 15 5000 is a solid 15-inch laptop with a vivid touch screen, but it doesn't do enough to distinguish itself at this price.

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 review

 

A powerful all-rounder hampered by its keyboard and screen

Core i7 processor ; Dedicated AMD graphics ; Smart exterior design ; Decent build quality

Low screen resolution and quality ; Middling battery life ; Mediocre keyboard

Scores in depth The Inspiron range is a long-standing pillar of Dell's laptop line, so we're pleased to see a new model updated with the latest Intel hardware. It's a good-looking bit of kit, too, with a brushed metal finish across the lid.

Full HD, IPS screen ; Core i7 CPU ; Discrete graphics

Could use some refinement ; 10/100 Ethernet ; 1x1 802.11ac

The Dell Inspiron 15 5547 is a mainstream, 15.6in laptop with a strong central configuration. It's good enough for students, families, and anyone who wants a reasonably fast, yet affordable, laptop with a Full HD screen.

Dell Inspiron 15-5558 review

 

Few laptops at this price offer the all-round goodness of the new 15-5558

The Inspiron 15-5558 straddles budget and midrange laptop camps, depending on configuration, asserting excellent build quality and decent performance as you’d expect of a £500+ design. The screen is one of the best you’ll find on a laptop around this...
