Dell Inspiron 13 5000


Shoppers looking for a capable notebook that doubles as a tablet should definitely consider Dell's Inspiron 13 5000 ($649.99 as tested; starting at $549.99). This 13.3-inch hybrid combines a 6th-Generation Core i5 processor with strong sound and a...

Solid performance; Comfortable keyboard; Strong audio

Dim, dull screen; Undercarriage gets hot; Slow SSD

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 17 5000 Review


If you're looking for a laptop for productivity and entertainment, there's nothing like a big 17-inch screen to immerse yourself in for work and play. The Dell Inspiron 17 5000 gives you that, plus solid performance for an affordable price (starting at...

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

Shallow keyboard; Display a bit dim; Warm bottom

The Inspiron 17 5000 offers capable performance, colorful design options and a large screen for under $500.

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

Designed for multimedia enthusiasts on a tight budget, the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Non-Touch ($449.99) is a sprawling 17-inch desktop-replacement laptop that looks more expensive than it is. You get reasonably good Pentium-powered performance, a...

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 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 ...

Great work laptop with a large screen


- The market is light on large screen laptops that aren't gaming laptops; this is one of the few. - You might consider replacing the HDD with a SSD for more speed/responsiveness (I haven't yet, but it's a possibility)

- 17" screen -- needed for spreadsheets - Good amount of memory - Solid processor - Large HDD

- When displaying to a second screen over HDMI, the secondary screen must be connected during boot-up for audio over HDMI to work. Screen sleep will cause the audio over HDMI to stop working (laptop speakers continue to function). I haven't determined...

Definitely recommend this computer to anyone that plans to use their laptop for any graphic purposes over any other 15" screen. It's increased my efficiency instantly.

Great resolution/Big screen Quiet and sleek for such a big size of laptop Shipping was faster than expected..surprisingly fast

It's a bit heavy but all 17" laptops are heavy

Reasonably-priced laptop would be perfect with an SSD!


Was actually kind of disappointed in the performance of this laptop since I bought it to replace an old Dell laptop from 2011 (i3, 4GB, integrated) with one major caveat: I had upgraded the old one from 4200rpm HDD to an SSD. This thing would...

High-end i7 processor, 15.6" touch-screen, 8GB RAM, dedicated Radeon graphics card, back-lit keyboard, still has a DVD drive, having a number pad took some getting used to compared to my last 15" laptop.

Guess I must have missed it, but the dedicated card is part of a hybrid graphics system, so it still eats up a small portion of RAM for the integrated portion that runs 99% of the time (probably a good thing for battery life).
