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 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.

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 review

 

The Dell Inspiron 13 5000 is a powerful ultraportable laptop that makes the MacBook Air look past it. Read our Dell Inspiron 13 5000 review.

The Dell Inspiron 13 5000 tells you larger convertible laptops have truly entered the mainstream. It’s reasonably affordable, still looks good and has the roughly the same power as some laptops costing way over £1000. Down sides include that the screen...

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 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...
