Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series Review

Dell Inspiron 17 5000 Series

These are the main factors that make the impression of a laptop and you should always review the laptops on these points.


The first thing which anyone will notice in the laptop is the look and design of it. There are many people who just focus on design and purchase a laptop with good design instead of good specifications. It is a budget-friendly series, so we don’t have expectations to have a laptop that has a stainless steel body.

But this laptop has a very good plastic body which comes in two colors silver and black. As we said earlier that Dell is not very much into the design of laptops but this laptop has a good comfortable type of body which we can say is the average type of body.


If the reason behind buying this laptop is gaming, watching movies or video editing then you’ll be glad to know that for all these things the screen is best. It has a 17.3 inches full HD screen which will meet all your entertainment needs.

You would know that this series doesn’t have a touch display. We have tested the screen in daylight outside and indoors. The performance of the screen in the room was perfect, not very bright but it has a good contrast of colors but the performance in the bright sun is very poor.

You will not be able to see anything or work under the sun. This laptop is best for the indoor activities.


The keypad is a very important thing because there are multiple things which are performed by the keypad so, for a good laptop it is very compulsory to have a good keyboard too. The keypad looks very good and it has decent keys with a distance of 1.5mm which is needed for a good keypad. Although there are many other reviews that say that this keypad makes your speed slow, I enjoy writing on this keypad and I don’t even care about the speed.

The other important part of the keypad is the trackpad. This laptop gives you a trackpad of a 105 mm x 80 mm touch area which means you have a very vast area to left and right-click. I personally don’t like the trackpad and I prefer to go with the mouse but it is a personal preference. You might like the trackpad more.


It’s another important thing if you are going to buy this laptop for watching movies or playing games because the sound plays a very important role in making the experience good or bad. The sound speakers in the Dell Inspiron 5000 series are good if you are not an expert level audio analyst.

The sound is very loud, so you 2 or 3 friends in the room can easily listen to the song or watch a movie during the night stay. The sound of this laptop is great but it is not the premium one and sometimes if you listen with focus you will hear humming sound during the songs which is not a big problem.


The laptop has the 8th generation Intel core processors which was making it very fast and reliable for different tasks. There are two options in the processors You can choose Intel  i5 core processors or i7 Intel core processor. We have tried both and there are not many differences in both of them.

There are many people who tend to go with the i7 process and desire to get faster and reliable speed but what they don’t know is that they are paying more for a little more speed, so we will say that you should save your money and go with the i5 processors.


The one thing is for sure in this laptop you don’t have any issues related to the storage because it has a solid state drive and also hard disk drive, so, you can use the both. And if you find it not enough for you then you have the option to upgrade the SSD to 256 SSD.

If you ask us we will say to pick the option of a 128GB SSD with 1TB HDD because it will handle all your tasks like gaming, watching movies, and multitasking very smoothly.

Battery life

Battery life is something which is very important for this kind of machine because if you are someone who is buying this laptop for the purpose of portability then you should not buying this laptop because it may be lightweight and slim but the battery life of this laptop is around 6 to 7 hours if you are continuously surfing on the youtube and browsing on the internet.

The battery life is not good but you can say that it might be average for the people who have home-based work so, whenever the battery is low they can plug in and continue their work.

Support and warranty

The best thing about Dell is that they have a very premium level support system and they are fully focused on the 100% satisfaction of their customers that’s why Dell is leading the laptop industry. They have a fully active 24/7 customer care center if you have any queries related to Dell contact them and they solve your query.

Dell is a premium brand with premium products and they stay strong behind their products and provide the one-year warranty for this laptop with a 30 days money-back guarantee, so you can buy from them without any worry.


There are many ports in this laptop which makes it suitable for all kinds of people. If you want to connect anything on the laptop it has a port. If we go more specific it has an Ethernet cable port, HDMI port, USB-C, USB 2.0, and USB 3.1 ports which means it has many connectivity options available in the laptop.

  • Slim and attractive design
  • 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD storage options
  • The performance of the laptop is good
  • Ports included in the HDMI and USB-C and many more.
  • Keyboard is good
  • Full premium support

It has a very strong processor 8th generation core i7 and it has a memory of 8 GB which you can extend to 16GB according to your need.

If you are somebody interested in watching movies with your partner or even with your friends this laptop has a very bright full HD screen that will give you a great watching experience. The design of the laptop is very slim and smart. It is a very premium look business laptop that you can use in your daily business meetings.

The laptop comes in two color options one is black and silver so you can choose from both but I personally prefer the silver one because it gives a more metal and premium look to your laptop as compared to the black one.

All these things which we discussed above with the premium quality of Dell which makes the worth double of this laptop. The laptop comes to you after going into many checking systems because the satisfaction of the customer is what makes Dell the top brand of this laptop industry.

The one thing about the Dell is that if you don’t get the specification needed in a certain model you can request Dell and they will make a specific personal machine for your requirements in your budget.


In our view, the Dell Inspiron 17 5000 series is a good option if you are going to replace it with your current pc but make sure that you buy the right specifications with it. Most people think that the best thing is the processor of the laptop but in this case, don’t buy the i3 and you can choose between i5 and i7 both do not have any difference but where difference is when you are selecting the SSD at least you should select the 256 GB.
