Dell Inspiron 15 3580, i7-8565U
Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 15 3580, i7-8565U
Source: Laptop Media
Inspiron 15 3580 is still the typical low-cost multimedia laptop. It may not have some of the good looks of Lenovo Ideapad 330s for example, neither does it have an IPS panel option. What it does have is rigidity. Despite its all-plastic build that doesn’t whisper “high quality” from basically nowhere, its body is sturdy and endures even hard tries for bending.

AMD Radeon 520: Entry level graphics card with 320 shaders (5 compute units), 2 GB GDDR5 and a 64 Bit memory bus. Uses the same chip as the old Radeon R7 M230, M340, M440 and e.g. Radeon R7 M445 (28nm GCN).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
i7-8565U: 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.
