Dell Inspiron 15 5579 (i5-8250U, SSD, IPS, Touch) Convertible Review

 

No news. Kaby Lake CPU replaced with Kaby Lake Refresh CPU - that's pretty much the gist of Dell's latest Inspiron 15. Thanks to its fast SSD, its touchscreen, and the backlit keyboard the convertible is a pretty solid workhorse. Find out in our review...

IPS display ; FHD display ; quad-core CPU ; pleasantly quiet ; fast Wi-Fi ; fast SSD ; decent battery life ; low power consumption ; comfortable backlit keyboard

dark display ; low color-space coverage ; thermal throttling (CPU) ; no support for Active Pen ; no USB-C

The Dell Inspiron 15 5579 is a 15.6-inch convertible with just minor upgrades from the previous model. It even looks identical to its predecessor’s predecessor, the Dell Inspiron 15 5568. However, it is more powerful than ever thanks to Intel’s Core...

Recensione del Convetibile Dell Inspiron 15 5579 (i5-8250U, SSD, IPS, Touch)

 

Nessuna news. La CPU Kaby Lake è stata sostituita dalla CPU Kaby Lake Refresh: questo è il succo dell'ultimo Inspiron 15 di Dell. Grazie all'SSD veloce, al touchscreen e alla tastiera retroilluminata, il convertibile è un cavallo da tiro piuttosto...

Display IPS ; Display FHD ; CPU quad-core ; piacevolmente tranquillo ; Wi-Fi veloce ; SSD veloce ; durata della batteria decente ; basso consumo energetico ; Tastiera retroilluminata confortevole

display scuro ; Bassa copertura dello spazio colore ; strozzamento termico (CPU) ; nessun supporto per Active Pen ; no USB-C

Il Dell Inspiron 15 5579 è un 15,6 pollici convertibile con aggiornamenti solo minori rispetto al modello precedente. Sembra anche identico al predecessore del suo predecessore, il Dell Inspiron 15 5568. Tuttavia, è più potente che mai grazie all'Intel...

Kort testrapport Dell Inspiron 15 5579 (i5-8250U, SSD, IPS, Touch) Convertible

 

Geen nieuws. Kaby-Lake-CPU vervangen door een Kaby-Lake-refresh-CPU - dat is zowat de kern van de nieuwste Inspiron 15 van Dell. Dankzij zijn snelle SSD, touchscreen en verlichte toetsenbord is de convertible een degelijk werkpaard. Kom in ons...

Courte critique du convertible Dell Inspiron 15 5579 (i5-8250U, SSD, IPS, Touch)

 

Rien de nouveau. Remplacement du processeur Kaby Lake par un Kaby Lake Refresh : c'est à peu près tout ce que propose le dernier Inspiron 15 de Dell. Grâce à son SSD rapide, son écran tactile, et son clavier rétroéclairé, l'appareil est un convertible...

écran IPS ; écran FHD ; CPU quatre coeurs ; silencieux ; Wifi rapide ; SSD performant ; autonomie honnête ; faible consommation ; clavier rétroéclairé confortable

écran sombre ; couverture de l'espace colorimétrique réduite ; thermal throttling (processeur) ; pas compatible avec un stylet actif ; pas d'USB C

Le Dell Inspiron 15 5579 est un convertible de 15,6 pouces avec très peu d’évolutions par rapport à son prédécesseur - il ressemble même au modèle d’encore avant, l’Inspiron 15 5568. Mais il est plus puissant que jamais grâce à l’Intel Core i5-8250U,...

Review del Convertible Dell Inspiron 15 5579 (i5-8250U, SSD, IPS, Touch)

 

Sin noticias. La CPU de Kaby Lake fue reemplazada por una CPU de Kaby Lake Refresh - esta es la esencia de la última Inspiron 15 de Dell. Gracias a su rápida SSD, su pantalla táctil y el teclado retroiluminado, el convertible es un caballo de batalla...

pantalla IPS ; Pantalla FHD ; CPU de cuatro núcleos ; agradablemente silencioso ; Wi-Fi rápido ; SSD rápido ; aguante decente de la batería ; bajo consumo de energía ; cómodo teclado retroiluminado

pantalla oscura ; baja cobertura de espacio de color ; estrangulamiento térmico (CPU) ; sin soporte para Active Pen ; sin USB-C

El Dell Inspiron 15 5579 es un convertible de 15,6 pulgadas con sólo actualizaciones menores del modelo anterior. Incluso se ve idéntico a su predecesor, el Dell Inspiron 15 5568. Sin embargo, es más potente que nunca gracias al Core i5-8250U de Intel,...

Test Dell Inspiron 15 5579 (i5-8250U, SSD, IPS, Touch) Convertible

 

Nicht viel Neues! Kaby Lake wird durch Kaby-Lake-Refresh ersetzt. Das sind die groben Änderungen beim neuen Inspiron 15 von Dell. Dazu gesellt sich eine flotte SSD; ein Touch-Screen und eine beleuchtete Tastatur machen das Convertible zu einem soliden...

IPS-Bildschirm ; Full-HD-Bildschirm ; Quad-Core-Prozessor ; Angenehm leise ; Schnelles WLAN ; Flinke SSD ; Gute Akkulaufzeiten ; Geringer Energiebedarf ; Angenehme Tastatur mit Hintergrundbeleuchtung

Dunkler Bildschirm ; Geringe Farbraumabdeckungen ; Thermal-Throttling (CPU) ; Active Pen wird nicht unterstützt ; Kein USB-TypC

Das Dell Inspiron 15 5579 ist ein Convertible im 15,6-Zoll-Format. Der Hersteller betreibt auch beim neuesten Spross lediglich Modellpflege unter der Haube. Optisch hat sich seit dem Dell Inspiron 15 5568 nichts getan. Mit dem neuen Intel Core i5-8250U...

Test: Dell Inspiron 15 5579 (i5-8250U, SSD, IPS, Tryckkänslig) Omvandlingsbar (Sammanfattning)

 

Inga nyheter. En Kaby Lake CPU har bytts ut mot en Kaby Lake Refresh CPU - det är i princip kontentan av Dells senaste Inspiron 15. Tack vare snabb SSD, tryckkänslig skärm och bakgrundsbelyst tangentbord är denna omvandlingsbara en ganska gedigen...

IPS-skärm ; FHD-skärm ; fyrkärnig CPU ; behagligt tyst ; snabb WiFi ; snabb SSD ; skaplig batteritid ; låg energiförbrukning ; bekvämt bakgrundsbelyst tangentbord

mörk skärm ; låg färgrymdstäckning ; värmestrypning (CPU) ; inget stöd för Active Pen ; ingen USB-C
