Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 13-5379-9573

79.9% Dell Inspiron 13 5379 (i5-8250U, UHD 620) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Old on the outside, new on the inside. Dell has updated the Inspiron 13 5379 with an Intel 8th generation Kaby Lake processor. This is the only noteworthy change though. Aesthetically, everything remains the same, including the I/O. In this review we will be clarifying what performance you should expect from the Dell Inspiron 13 5379.
60% Dell Inspiron 13 5000 2-in-1 (5379) Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English version
We do not recommend the Dell Inspiron 13 5000. If you are willing to put up with short battery life, then we’d urge you to spend $50 on the entry-level Inspiron 13 7000 and its all-aluminum enclosure. There are, however, better options than either of Dell’s 13-inch convertibles. Each costs considerably more, but we like the HP Spectre x360 13 and the Lenovo Yoga 920 best among 13-inch 2-in-1 convertibles. And if your budget won’t allow for a four-figure purchase, then we recommend the Asus Transformer Pro T304UA or the Lenovo Yoga 720$849.99 at Lenovo.

80% Dell Inspiron 13 5000 review: A speedy 2-in-1 ultrabook boosted by Intel’s 8th-gen CPU
Source: PC World English version
Boasting speedy quad-core performance, a swiveling display that lets it double as a tablet, facial recognition and a reasonable price tag, the Dell Inspiron 13 5000 is a solid ultrabook option for mainstream users. Only its dim display and middling battery life disappoint.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i5-8250U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

Dell: Dell is a U.S. manufacturer (based in Texas) of computer hardware founded in 1984 and is one of the largest international manufacturers in terms of both market share and notebook models. Its product line includes desktops, notebooks, storage systems, monitors, servers, printers, consumer electronics and peripherals. Dell offers laptops that are suitable for various applications, such as business laptops, gaming laptops, ultra portables and workstations. Dell's business laptops from the Latitude and Precision series are an option for professional users and businesses.

In 2023, Dell had an approximate 17% market share of global PC sales, ranking #3 after Lenovo and HP.

For gaming enthusiasts, Dell's Alienware brand is for gaming notebooks.

73.3%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
