Affordable Dell Inspiron 13, 14, and 15 5000 series refreshed with Intel Comet Lake Core i3-10110U up to the Core i7-10510U
Much like the upper mid-range Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 series, the more affordable Inspiron 5000 series will also be getting internal processor updates to Intel's new 10th gen Comet Lake series. These models include the Inspiron 13 5390, Inspiron 14 5493, and Inspiron 15 5593. CPU options will range from the Core i3-10110U to the Core i5-10210U and Core i7-10510U all with integrated UHD Graphics. While there will be no Iris Graphics options like on the Core i7-1065G7, some Inspiron 5390 and 5493 configurations will come with GeForce MX230 or MX250 options instead for a respectable level of gaming performance similar to the popular GeForce MX150.
Aside from the internal changes, the chassis designs of the new models will be essentially identical to the existing Inspiron 15 5584 and Inspiron 15 5585 series. New colors will be made available to complement the default XPS-like Platinum Silver including Iced Lilac, Iced Mint, and Iced Gold.
The biggest head-scratcher is that USB Type-C with Power Delivery is only available on SKUs with dedicated GeForce graphics likely to save on costs. We believe that USB Type-C should be standard by now on inexpensive laptops including the Inspiron 5000 series.
The Inspiron 13 5390, Inspiron 14 5493, and Inspiron 15 5593 will all be coming to North America on October 1st starting from $480 to $580 depending on the screen size. The Inspiron 13 5390 in particular will be the only one of the three with WWAN options. Users in EMEA will get these models two to three weeks earlier than those in North America as Dell will be staggering their global launch dates.
