Both budget friendly and full sized is a combination that is on many laptop consumers list and the all new Dell Inspiron seems to check off both of those requirements. It comes with a full sized 15.6 inch display and a price tag that is well below the average laptop currently on the market. Is it possible the right fit for you? Below we will break down some of the benefits and downsides to this model to help you make that decision.
Processor: Intel Core i3
Memory: 4 GB of RAM
Storage: 128 GB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
While the Intel Core i3 processor isn’t the most powerful on the market with many of the budget friendly models including a low end Intel Celeron this is a great addition to a laptop in this price range. The i3 has plenty of power to handle the average workload of most consumers without any noticeable performance issues.
Another way that Dell has sneaked in more performance than you might expect from a laptop at this price is by going with an SSD drive instead of the cheaper SATA. The SSD lacks any moving parts which allows it to read and write faster as well as use less power.
If you are still using physical media on a regular basis you will be happy to see that this model still includes a DVD+RW optical drive.
We mentioned some things that Dell has done with this model to increase performance but where it failed to impress is the amount of internal memory. With just 4 GB of memory included this is the potential bottleneck when it comes to performance.
While we overall like the fact it has an SSD drive by going with a smaller model you only have 128 GB of storage available. For some this may just not be quite enough.
For a budget friendly model the Dell Inspiron i3567-3484BLK-PUS does impress. If you are looking to save a few dollars this might be a great option for you.
