The Dell Inspiron I3567-5949BLK-PUS is a laptop with a standard-size 15.6-inch touch-screen display. The I3567-5949BLK-PUS belongs to the budget-class Dell 3567 series, meaning it doesn’t include higher-end features like Full HD and IPS display, keyboard backlight, or aluminum casing. Instead, this Windows 10-based laptop sports a black plastic chassis, which houses quite decent components – the 7th Generation Intel Core i5-7200U processor, 8GB of system memory (RAM), and a 256GB solid state drive (SSD).
With it’s Black Friday price of $399.99 on Best Buy, the I3567-5949BLK-PUS won’t be a bad deal. However, for the same price you will be also able to get the HP Pavilion 15-cc610ms with an IPS wide-viewing-angle touch-screen and faster 8th Gen Core i5-8250U processor.

Let’s get back to the Dell I3567-5949BLK-PUS. Touch-screen functionality isn’t too common on budget-class laptops. So, this model stands out from the crowd in that regard. But otherwise, the display isn’t impressive. It has a 1366-by-768-pixel resolution, so it lacks greater sharpness of FHD 1920-by-1080 screens. Lack of IPS means it doesn’t have totally wide viewing angles.
The included Intel Core i5-7200U is a mid-range laptop CPU, which provides excellent performance for web surfing, work in MS Office and similar software, high-def media playback, and other daily home and office tasks. It can be also used for some casual gaming, thanks to its integrated Intel HD 620 graphics. With 8GB of RAM, you won’t be having any memory-related slowdowns when you run many programs simultaneously. The notebook’s 256GB internal SSD storage capacity is on the smaller side, but SSDs provide much better system responsiveness than hard drives that are commonly used in budget laptops.
As usual, the notebook incorporates stereo speakers, a web camera, Wi-Fi wireless (802.11N instead of faster 802.11AC), an Ethernet LAN network port, Bluetooth, HDMI video output, two USB 3.0 ports and one older USB 2.0 port, an multi-format media card reader, and a headphones / mic audio jack.
The laptop has a battery capacity of 40 WHr. We have no info on battery life, but judging from the specs you can expect around 4-5 hours of light work with medium screen brightness on a single battery charge.
The Dell Inspiron I3567-5949BLK-PUS weighs in at 5.1 pounds, which is a usual weight for a 15.6-inch notebook.
Usual starting price: around 420 USD* as of November 16, 2018.
