Revolutionizing the laptop space this year is Dell with its new-and-improved Inspiron series that’s fitted with upgraded, powerful processors and flexibility of use that few contemporaries have. The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (7580) laptops bring to the table terrific performance—thanks to an upgraded eighth-generation Intel Core processor—and helpful options for collaboration and mobility. Additionally, the 7000 Inspiron series also features NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics, Dell Cinema, and a 180-degree spindle to let you flatten the screen.
If Dell claims highly improved performance and speed with the new-generation Intel processors, the claims are met. The Intel Core i7-8565U processor can be boosted to run at 4.6GHz, and this, combined with 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage space is ample for day-to-day computing needs (You can expand the storage up to 1TB).
Particularly delightful is the battery backup that lasts for—wait for it—an entire day! While the backup you actually end up getting will naturally depend on your usage, it won’t be overstating it to say that this laptop does offer reliable unplugged operation. Even when you’re out of charge, 15 minutes is all it takes to power the device back on.
In the realm of display (non-touch), the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics takes things up several notches, building an enthralling, High-Definition, high resolution (1920 x 1080) experience. Since the graphics card has 2GB dedicated memory, it delivers a lag-free, undistorted result.
It is worth mentioning the narrow-bezel design too, for the frameless and wide-area display that it creates makes your viewing experience a great deal more captivating.
The imagery is further complemented by Dell Cinema whose brilliance comes forth when you playback A/V content. The sound quality is amplified with Waves MaxxAudio Pro; the picture quality is color-rich and vivid.
The Dell Inspiron 15 7580 also delivers well in terms of connectivity and device support. You can avail of a Type-C USB 3.1 port in addition to an SD card reader, an HDMI, and regular USB 3.1 ports. Behold the HDMI in particular—you can use it to connect to external displays and playback video at up to 60 fps. It supports high-res displays (4K Ultra HD), so you can easily use this laptop to share content with peers.
How well does the new Inspiron 7000 adapt to travel and mobility? Pretty well! Its comfortable thickness (0.74”–0.78”) and sleek design make the computer easy to lug around, without any hassle. (If you get the ultra-HD display, the thickness can be a tad higher—at 0.83”.)
The design is unique, with a 180-degree reel to lay the screen flat, say when you need to demonstrate something to your colleagues. You can work in varying light conditions with the backlit keyboard. There is no stress about the durability either since the laptop descends from a line of highly reliable Dell Inspiron computers, all of which are extensively tested under varying temperatures (up to 65°C) and styles of use.
The weight of this laptop is on the higher side—4.41 lb. This is bulkier than many of its siblings in the Inspiron range. Here’s a special word for the color, for who can resist champagne powder (light pink)? It is also available in platinum.
Everyday life doesn’t need to be humdrum when you have a computing partner that aggregates power, style and dazzle in one sleek and portable package. The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (7580) laptop is a terrific improvement on the lineage and, evidently, a splendid offering for today’s audience that demands something out of the ordinary.
