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 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.

    Can you Play PUBG on dell inspiron 15 5570 with intel core i5?

    • Danijel Z – April 9, 2018:

      Hi, here’s what PUBG looks like on Intel UHD 620, which is the same integrated graphics used in the 5570:

      (The video isn’t mine, but it seems legit. There are other videos showing similar performance.)

      In short, PUBG is playable on lowest detail settings and 720p resolution, but frame rates are not great.

      Also, you should keep in mind that the laptop model used in the video has dual-channel RAM. If you have a single RAM module in your 5570 configuration, performance will be worse. Thankfully, the 5570 supports dual-channel memory, so you can upgrade it to dual-channel.

      Unfortunately, I don’t have PUBG right now to test in on my laptop with the i5-8250U / UHD 620, but you can check out my review of the chip including some popular games:

    Hello Danijel Z
    I see ur realy wasting time to help people
    Please can u tell me if this laptop needs cooling hardware and which one u think is best

    • Danijel Z – March 28, 2018:

      Hi, I don’t think the modern mainstream laptops need a cooling stand. I have a very similar HP notebook and there was no need for any kind of additional cooling. Even the built-in CPU fan (on i5-8250U CPU) isn’t always on during the normal laptop use and most of the time runs on slow speed and almost inaudible. The only scenario I can think of when a cooling stand is maybe helpful is if you have high CPU usage over long periods of time like converting video formats for hours and similar stuff. But even in that case, the laptop should work normally without a cooling pad.

  3. sherif – February 28, 2018:

    Does the M.2 slot for SSD is (PCIe ver3 X4 NVMe) that supports high speeds or …. ?

  4. nitin – February 8, 2018:

    What is maximum RAM upgradable, is it 32 gb

  5. Suraj Pandey – January 31, 2018:

    Does gta 5 runs in this laptop?

  6. k – January 20, 2018:

    is it posible to replace m.2 wifi+bluetooth card with m.2 sata card ?

    • Danijel Z – January 20, 2018:

      Since the official specs list:
      One M.2 slot for the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo card and
      One M.2 slot for solid-state drive
      I assume you won’t be able to use the first slot for SSD. Dell’s support via will maybe be able to give you a definite answer.

  7. aloron – January 16, 2018:

    does it support fingerprint

    • Danijel Z – January 16, 2018:

      The official Dell website states the 5570 has optionally built-in fingerprint reader, so it is available only on select configurations of the laptop. On configurations with the fingerprint reader, it is built into the power button.

    • k – January 20, 2018:

      fingerprint support. available

  8. aloron – January 16, 2018:

    does it support fingerprint?

  9. Staedtler – January 13, 2018:

    Do you know if it heats up during excessive rendering use? I’m looking at the model with the dedicated Radeon 530 card but Im concerned about the lack of cooling ports. Any idea if it’ll run with AutoCad/BIM software?

  10. Raghavendra – December 27, 2017:

    Does this model has any heating issue? I do not see any vents on the sides of the laptop. I am worried if it may heat up with continous heavy usage of 8 to 10 hours.

    • Danijel Z – December 27, 2017:

      Hi, I don’t own the laptop so can’t comment on heating, but can tell you the vent hole (for a single CPU fan inside) is on the bottom of the chassis. I have a Lenovo laptop with similarly designed cooling system and similar Intel Core U-series 15W processor, and haven’t had any heating issues so far during heavy usage. The Dell 5570 laptop doesn’t have a hot 45W Intel Core HQ CPU nor a dedicated video card (which requires additional cooling), so I wouldn’t expect any excessive heating on the 5570 with its existing cooling system.

  11. Martin – December 27, 2017:

    Just got i5570-7487slv-pus with i7-8550u processor, 2tb hdd 16 gb ram and radeon 530 4gb graphics. Can I add m.2 ssd

  12. Karen – December 26, 2017:

    Help! Got this from my husband: 5570 with the i7-8550U Processor and 16GB memory, 2TB on the hard drive.
    I mostly use my laptop for personal office type documents, email, Music, photo storage, and email. I use an iPad or my iPhone primarily, but need this for the office features. My current laptop is a 2004 Dell Inspiron with Windows XP if that gives you a clue how non tech I am.
    Question: would I be better off with a refurbished Mac that could interface with my iPad, or with this new Dell?

    • Danijel Z – December 26, 2017:

      Apple has tech called Continuity for integration between Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple Watch. You can do a Google search for “Apple Continuity” to find out more, but generally a Mac would be better than the Dell when it comes to interfacing with your iPad and iPhone. Windows laptops like your Dell can interact with iPads and iPhones, but support for that is quite limited compared to Continuity.

    USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C™ (1) (optional) with PowerDelivery and Video – only on Configs with Discrete graphics only
    USB 3.1 Gen 1 (2)
    USB2.0 (1)

  14. Prasad – December 22, 2017:

    Does this laptop heats up too much on gaming due to amd graphics card?
    What is the average battery life on normal use (without gaming)?

  15. Dan – December 21, 2017:

    Does it have a pcie slot for the new ssd’s?

  16. Carol – December 17, 2017:

    I just purchased a new Inspiron 15 5000 Series – 5570. Initial unboxing included step to activate fingerprint login but process failed. The computer only came with a minimal quick setup guide. I can’t tell if this machine is malfunctioning or if fingerprint login isn’t an option. Can anyone confirm?
    Also, when I begin to setup the process, it morphs into “windows hello” feature. I guess they are related?

  17. Gerald – December 12, 2017:

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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:

          Yes it does.
