Dell Inspiron 15 5501 review – thin and light all-rounder that is far from perfect
Source: Laptop Media English Archive.org version
Dell Inspiron 15 5501’s display has an IPS panel with a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and good contrast ratio. Sadly, this is where the good stuff ends, and we start listing the downsides. If you happen to play some gays on this laptop, you should know that the pixel response time is very slow. Also, the sRGB color coverage is 50% and the backlight uses aggressive PWM for all brightness levels, except for the maximum. Thankfully, the last issue is fixed by our Health-Guard profile.

NVIDIA GeForce MX330: Successor of the MX230 and most likely a renamed GeForce MX250/MX150 based on the Pascal GP108 chip with 384 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

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

i5-1035G1: A low-power, Ice Lake family processor (SoC) featuring 4 cores, 8 threads, 6 MB of L3 cache and the UHD G1 (32 EUs) iGPU. This Core i5 saw the light of day in H2 2019; it is designed for use in highly portable consumer laptops. The CPU cores run at 1.0 GHz to 3.6 GHz. The Sunny Cove microarchitecture that is in use here is notable for several improvements over Skylake including support for new technologies, new instruction sets and fast LPDDR4-3733 RAM. There is no PCIe 4 support here, however.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
