The jack-of-all trades Inspiron system should be a solid budget buy for general users and students who frequently travel, work, game, and edit because of the fast Ryzen 7 5700U CPU.

Dell is currently offering its latest Inspiron 15 laptop for $250 USD off the original launch price of $950. The fully configured system comes with an 8-core Zen 2 AMD CPU, 1080p display, and 16 GB of RAM to be much faster than most other laptops in the same price range and category. The Inspiron series is home to Dell's budget-oriented multimedia models in contrast to the pricier XPS series.

The deal is notable for its well-rounded specifications and high-end processor. The Ryzen 7 5700U CPU is faster than most Intel Core U-series CPUs especially in multi-threaded loads while the 512 GB of storage should prove sufficient for most. If you're a home user or student, then this will be one of the better options you can get when maximizing both performance-per-dollar and portability.

The chassis appears to be based on the 2020 Inspiron 15 5500 series. We reviewed the Intel version here which we found to offer good serviceability and long battery life. However, users may not like the relatively dim display and poor color reproduction of the display.
