Battery life was a decent 6 hours and 20 minutes, which is shy of all-day battery but still respectable. Overall, the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 is an attractive, well-built laptop that offers a good balance of both application and gaming performance. It’s a great choice for an all-round laptop without breaking the bank and offered excellent performance for a laptop at this price with decent battery life and deserves a Best Buy award.

Dell's mid-range 15-inch laptop has a tough time trying to find a solid balance between entry level anf high end. The design of the system is nice and has a good level of quality in the build. The display is bright and colorful but it doesn't have a 1080p resolution like the more expensive model.

The Inspiron 5547 is very inexpensive for a laptop with a Core i7 processor and a 15.6-inch display, but it just doesn’t measure up to Dell’s usual quality standards. Its fit and finish are suspect, and it should have more USB ports, a faster Wi-Fi adapter, and gigabit ethernet—even at this price.

Dell's Inspiron 15 5000 is a solid mid-range machine in an attractive aluminum and soft-touch package. The available 1080p touch screen is another plus. However, the machine seems overpriced for what you get. For around $100 more, the Inspiron 15 7000 features discrete graphics and longer battery life in an all-aluminum package.

Here's how Dell can improve the Inspiron 15 5000 Series and make it a more attractive proposition: the Ethernet adapter should really be Gigabit rather than 10/100Mbps, the third USB port should be USB 3.0 rather than USB 2.0, the SD card slot should allow cards to sit all the way inside rather than having them stick out halfway, and the 802.11ac module (a 1x1 Intel Wireless-AC 3160 module that's limited to 433Mbps) should be a faster 2x2 module with 867Mbps capability.
