Dell Inspiron 15 5000 5570 / i5570 15.6″ Laptop with 8th Gen Intel Core, Optional Touch


Dell Inspiron 15 5000 5570 - i5570 Laptop

The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 5570 / i5570 is a typical 15.6-inch mainstream laptop. As a great plus, it is based on powerful quad-core 8th Generation Intel Core processors, as opposed to previous-gen dual-core chips. The quad-core update brings a good performance boost, which is noticeable in computing intensive tasks like music and video production or photography editing.

As for the daily computing chores both available processor options – the Intel Core i5-8250U and i7-8550U – are more than sufficient. The same applies to system memory size of either 8 or 12 Gigabytes. Data storage options of the Dell 5570 / i5570 are generous, too. The basic one is a standard 1-Terabyte hard disk drive. You can add a 128GB solid state drive to the 1TB HDD for optimal speed and capacity. Or you can select pure 256GB SSD for even better performance. The notebook also optionally includes a built-in DVD optical drive.

As for gaming, the notebook’s Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics is a basic game rendering solution. You can use it only for non-demanding games. That’s no wonder, since the UHD 620 is basically just a re-brand of the old HD 620. However, the 5570 / i5570 is also expected to be available with an optional dedicated video card.

Having a sharp Full HD 1920×1080-pixel display resolution instead of the budget HD 1366×768 is a good selling point of the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 5570 / i5570. The same applies to optional touch-screen support. But, the screen is based on TN technology, meaning it lacks IPS tech for wide viewing angles.

In the center of the platinum silver-colored chassis is a full-size keyboard with numeric pad and optional key backlight. The touchpad is a single-piece one, meaning it has click buttons integrated in the surface.

Furthermore, the laptop has stereo speakers, a 720p HD web-chat camera, 802.11AC Wi-Fi wireless and Ethernet LAN network connections, Bluetooth, two fast USB 3.1 ports and a slower USB 2.0 port, HDMI video output, a combo audio mic / headphones connector, and a 3-in-1 SD media card reader.

The 3-cell battery inside the 5570 has a medium-size capacity of 42 WHr. We have no info on battery life. Judging from the specs, we can assume it can last at least 4 hours on a charge.

Weight of the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 5570 / i5570 is 4.4 and 4.8 pounds without and with the DVD drive, respectively. The profile is 0.9″ thick.

Operating system choices are Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro.

    Hello.
    What is SSD technology? 3D NAND? 2D NAND? TLC? Thank you


  2. Dylan – October 30, 2017:

    What material is the body made from?


    • Danijel Z – October 30, 2017:

      Dell hasn’t provided info on materials. I assume it’s all plastics, because if the laptop is made of aluminum (or a part of it – lid or base) they usually emphasize that fact in their product descriptions.


  3. kevin – October 29, 2017:

    does it have a type-c port?


    • Danijel Z – October 29, 2017:

      No, it doesn’t. The Dell Inspiron 5570 has only full size USB ports. Two USB 3.1 and one USB 2.0.


    • asaf – November 6, 2017:

      it does have type c-port


      • Danijel Z – November 6, 2017:

        Hi, as far as I know, the currently available Inspiron 5570 configurations with Intel integrated graphics don’t include USB-C. USB-C will be available on configurations with dedicated graphics, according to Dell’s official specs sheet.

        Also, if you take a look at images of the 5570, USB-C is missing.

        Anyway, thanks for the heads up. We’ll update this page when the new 5570 configurations with dedicated GPUs and USB-C hit the market.


  4. srikanth – October 17, 2017:

    does it support virtualization technology????


    • Danijel Z – October 17, 2017:

      Yes, the i5 and i7 processors in this laptop support virtualization via VT-x and VT-d technologies.


      • srikanth – October 18, 2017:

        thanks for your response. talking about the new dell inspiron 5570 8th gen, does it support virtualization tech


        • Danijel Z – October 29, 2017:
