Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Review

 

It's always been hard to find a great everyday laptop with a 17-inch display, and the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 ($499.99 to start, $628.99 as tested) won't make that choice any easier. Even when configured with solid specs like a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM...

Multiple color options; Comfortable soft-touch deck; Decent performance

Shallow keyboard; Display a bit dim; Warm bottom

You can configure the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 however you like, but you can't get away from its cheap build quality and flat keyboard.

Dell Inspiron 13 5000

 

Want a very affordable 2-in-1? The Dell Inspiron 13 5000 2-in-1 starts at just $450 ($630 as tested), which is a great price for a mainstream convertible, but it makes some compromises. For instance, you'll get a 500GB and 5,400-rpm HDD rather than a...

Comfy keyboard; Affordable

Short battery life; Dim, dull screen

The Dell Inspiron 13 5000 is a solid 2-in-1 with a comfy keyboard and strong audio, but its display does not impress.

Dell Inspiron 13 5000 Series 2-in-1 (5368)

 

With some premium features and a budget price, the Dell Inspiron 13 5000 Series 2-in-1 is a good convertible-hybrid laptop for school and the basics.

Affordable. Solid convertible design. Quick SSD storage. Backlit keyboard.

No USB-C port. USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports are the same color.

The Dell Inspiron 13 5000 Series 2-in-1 (5368) is a very good choice if you're looking for your first convertible-hybrid laptop, or if you need to buy a Windows laptop for your senior high school or undergrad student. It's in between our current top...

Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Non-Touch

 

The Dell Inspiron 17 5000 is a nice-looking desktop-replacement laptop that offers good productivity performance and decent battery life for a very affordable price.

Affordable. Solid productivity and multimedia performance. Relatively long battery life.

1,600-by-900-resolution screen. Integrated graphics. Noisy clickpad.

Conclusion With the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Non-Touch, you get a lot of laptop for $450. Granted, its 17.3-inch screen won't display high-definition content at 1080p, but it displays 720p with aplomb and delivers vibrant colors. At this price you...

Dell Inspiron 5000 G700VT

 

Dell's latest SpeedStep notebook offers top-notch display and long battery life.

Dell fans will like the Inspiron 5000 G700VT, but others should consider Quantex's W-1511, practically the same machine for $288 less.

Dell Inspiron 5000 G650VT

 

Powerful portable boasts latest processor and huge hard drive.

Companies who want top mobile speed paired with a great presentation and graphics screen should consider the G650VT; others should wait until the new SpeedStep processors step down in price.

Dell Inspiron 13 5000

 

The latest version of Dell's Inspiron 13 5000 line is an intriguing product. It's a laptop/tablet hybrid device with a touchscreen that's attached via a 360-degree hinge that allows for it to be completely flipped around into a tablet-like form.

Dell Inspiron 13 5000 (5368) review

 

Its battery life and display aren't brilliant, but the Inspiron 13 5368's speed and excellent build quality help bridge the gap

Dell Inspiron 13 5000 series review

  (Rating Hidden)

13-inch laptops are often either superfast ultrabooks you need to re-mortgage your house to pay for or bargain-basement machines with bad screens, processors and…well, everything. The Dell Inspiron 13 5000 series has positioned itself somewhere in...

Dell - Inspiron 5000 G650LT

 

One of the heaviest SpeedStep notebooks at 3.6kg, the Inspiron is also the most obviously intended as a desktop replacement, with its 650MHz SpeedStep PIII chip, 128MB of SDRAM as standard, large 12GB hard disk, 6-speed ...
