Dell Inspiron i5566-3000BLK-PUS 15.6″ Touch-Screen Laptop (Intel Core i3, 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Black)


Dell Inspiron i5566-3000BLK-PUS 15.6 Touch-Screen Laptop (Intel Core i3, 6GB Memory, 1TB HDD, Black)

The Dell Inspiron i5566-3000BLK-PUS is an everyday home-use 15.6-inch laptop with added touch-screen functionality. It’s based on an Intel Core i3 processor, 6GB of system memory, and a 1-Terabyte hard drive with Windows 10 Home operating system installed.

The display supports multi-touch finger input, but on the other hand it’s a budget-class LCD panel. The screen resolution is 1366×768 pixels as opposed to sharper 1920×1080 Full HD. Also, the display is TN type, meaning narrower viewing angles than on those based on IPS. To accompany the touch-screen, Dell has provided a full-size keyboard with numeric pad and a multi-touch trackpad. There’s no info on backlight for the keyboard, so this feature is apparently missing.

Inside the black chassis made of plastics, the Inspiron i5566-3000BLK-PUS carries the 7th Generation Intel Core i3-7100U CPU as the heart of the system. The chip is in the mid range part of the laptop processor spectrum. This means flawless performance for the usual daily computing duties. When you add 6GB of RAM and integrated Intel HD 620 graphics to the mix, you get an excellent system for web surfing, media consumption, work in productivity applications, and some casual gaming. The weakest point of the system is storage speed, since it relies on old hard drive technology instead of newer solid state drive. On the other hand, 1TB capacity offers a plenty of space for music, movies, and other locally stored files.

Dell Inspiron i5566-3000BLK-PUS has a built-in DVD optical drive, stereo speakers, a web camera, 802.11N Wi-Fi wireless (no support for faster 802.11AC standard), an Ethernet LAN network jack, Bluetooth, HDMI external display output, one USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports for peripheral connectivity, an SD media card reader, and a combined microphone / headphones audio port.

There’s no info on battery life. This type of a laptop usually provides 4-5 hours of battery life with normal use.

The i5566-3000BLK-PUS weighs in at 5.2 pounds and is 0.9″ thick.

  1. Tassy Emmanuel – November 16, 2017:

    Pls what is the size of the video memory of this laptop.


    • Danijel Z – November 16, 2017:

      The laptop doesn’t have dedicated video memory. Its Intel HD 620 integrated GPU uses the main memory (RAM) for graphics purposes. How much of main RAM memory it takes depends on a task and changes dynamically.


  2. Vicki – June 19, 2017:

    Where do you plug in earphones? I’m assuming the earphones must be adaptable to a USB port?


    • Danijel Z – June 19, 2017:

      The laptop has the standard 3.5mm audio jack, so you can plug in your earphones into it. There’s no need for a headphones-to-USB adapter.


  3. Caro – June 1, 2017:

    Does this have Movie Maker installed?


    • Danijel Z – June 1, 2017:

      The last time I checked Movie Maker wasn’t available on Microsoft’s site at all. Apparently it’s a discontinued program. But I was able to find it online as a part of Windows Essentials 2012 suite. Movie Maker works well under my Windows 10 Home, but it isn’t a built-in part of Windows. You have to install it yourself.


  4. Rose – May 28, 2017:

    is it a 2-in-1 laptop? How far back does the screen recline? Are there any dell pens compatible with it, if so which?


    • Danijel Z – May 29, 2017:

      Hi, it ins’t a 2-in-1 but rather a standard laptop with added touchscreen functionality. It can be opened up to 135 degrees. You can use ordinary capacitive pens with this notebook. I don’t know if Dell offers them, but you can get third party pens. They are inexpensive and easy to find. Please keep in mind that capacitive pens (with no electronics inside) don’t provide advanced functionalities like pressure sensitivity. These features are available with active digitizer pens, which don’t work with this notebook model.
