Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 15 5570-5441
A pricey mid-range notebook that does the job well, but - for most - this should be considered carefully.

Honestly, we don’t like bashing notebooks for no reason or make a verdict out of a nitpicking but in this case, all of the data we’ve gathered from the review can’t make a compelling reason to buy this machine. We honestly can’t think of anything that’s a solid key selling point except for the CPU itself.

A big silver grey notebook from Dell was their latest offering to land on my desk. A large screen and a surprisingly small keyboard almost lost with lots of free space all around it may not sound that encouraging for you to read on.

Model: The Dell Inspiron 15 5570-5441 is a budget laptop that packs good performance and sports a clean-looking chassis. Matte plastic is used for the entire lid, giving the laptop a more simplistic look. The Inspiron 15 5570 takes a more conservative approach with clean lines, no decorations or ornaments, and is entirely black or gray, depending on the color of choice, which will probably appeal to a broader audience, including users looking for a business-oriented laptop. Measuring just short of 20 mm (19.9 mm to be exact) and tipping the scale at 2.12 kg, the Inspiron 15 5570 is a fairly portable laptop. Concerning hardware specifications, it features an Intel Core i7-8550U, which is part of the new 8th-Generation Kaby Lake Refresh. It has a standard 2.5-inch HDD/SSD bay and an M.2-SSD slot. The first one is occupied by a Seagate 1TB HDD, while the M.2-SSD slot is empty. The notebook allows up to 32 GB of DDR4-2400 memory using a dual-channel setup of two 16GB DDR4-2400 sticks. The laptop came with just a single Kingston 8GB DDR-2400 RAM chip. As for graphics, it comes with an AMD Radeon 530 made for entry-level notebooks that can be used for general multimedia and light gaming.
The Inspiron 5570 comes with a Full-HD (1920×1080) TN panel. With a 15.6-inch diagonal, the display scores 142 ppi and 0.18 x 0.18 mm pixel pitch. The pixel density is 141 per inch, which is considered standard for this category. The display is its weakest point, it does not please the eye, despite its good resolution and matte finish. Users can watch movies, play something undemanding, but when working with text, it will probably strain the eyes. The Dell Inspiron 15 5570 has a fairly handy island type keyboard. It is good for typing texts and even for games. Aside from that, the layout of the keys is quite typical with a separate digital block and two-level illumination. As for the touch panel, it measures 10.5 by 8 cm - as a rule, this is enough for machinations on the screen. The cursor moves smoothly, without breaking or nerve jumps, the surface itself is pleasant to the touch. The sides come with the usual set of connectors typical for the price point. The laptop features USB-C 3.1 (Gen 1), HDMI, RJ-45 for LAN, two USB-3.0 ports and a 3.5-mm audio jack on the left, while the right side comes with an optical drive, USB 2.0 and an SD-card reader.

AMD Radeon 530: Entry class dedicated graphics card with 320 or 384 shaders (depending on the used chip) and DDR3 or GDDR5 graphics memory (both with a 64 Bit bus). Both chips are used for a few years, e.g. even starting with the Radeon 8590M (28nm GCN).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
