Dell’s Inspiron lineup has always showcased the company’s progress in making affordable thin and light machines with powerful hardware. The Inspiron 15 is no different. It is a proper 15-inch device but weighs just 3.62 pounds and is one of the best-specced laptops around for daily use.
The Dell Inspiron 15 switches over to Team Red with an AMD Ryzen 7 5700U processor with 8 cores and 16 threads, clocked at 4.2GHz, which includes an integrated AMD Radeon GPU that’s good enough for playing some of the Xbox Game Pass titles and light content creation. It is paired with 16GB DDR4 3200MHz memory and 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe solid state storage, which is more than enough for casual use.
The Inspiron 15 features a 15.6-inch Full HD LED display with narrow bezels and an anti-glare coating, which is large enough to immerse yourself in watching videos. The laptop also sports a backlit keyboard primed for typing out long essays and is perfect for schoolwork.
You get a wide choice of ports, including a USB 3.2 Gen-1 Type-C port with DisplayPort and USB PD support, along with 2 USB 3.2 Gen-1 Type-A ports and HDMI out and SD card slot. Dell includes a 54Whr battery that delivers around 8 hours of battery life in intermittent usage and features twin 2W stereo speakers and an HD webcam.
