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