Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 14 5482-VC58K
Source: Laptop Media
Dell Inspiron 14 5482 2-in-1 is certainly a well-built device. However, it is not the best you can find on the market today. Yes, the touchscreen responsiveness is awesome, but there is more to be desired from the screen. While it is punchy, it lacks half of the colors in sRGB and is dimmer than what you would expect from a multimedia device.

To do better, you would need to spend at least $1000 more to get a 4K screen like on the Lenovo Yoga 920 (review here), ASUS Zenbook Flip (review here) or a Dell XPS 13, 2-in-1 (link here).

CommentNVIDIA GeForce MX130: Mid-range graphics card for mobiles based on the Maxwell architecture. Renamed GeForce 940MX.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
