This latest version of Dell’s Inspiron Laptop caters to those who prefer hybrid laptops. With touch-screen capabilities and a 1080p 13-inch screen size, it also brags with interestingly high specs at a relatively low budget price. Considering that it is a hybrid laptop with a decent memory, it did not heat up the way we expected it to. Below is our review of some of the most important benefits and downsides to this model to see if it might be right for you.
Processor: Intel 8th Gen Core i5-8250U CPU
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Storage: 256GB SSD
Screen: 13.3-inch 1980x1080P
– During the test we conducted on Geekbench 4, Dell Inspirion 13 5000 scored 12,041 on overall performance. This is almost 50% better than the laptops of the same category as the Lenovo Yoga 720.
– Weighing a 1.6kg and 20 mm thick, this hybrid laptop almost surpasses the ultrabook territory, with just 20% heavier from the standard weight of an ultrabook laptop
– Since it is a hybrid laptop, we are concerned with the creaks on the hinges of this unit. Fortunately, this laptop is sturdy enough and the hinges are nice and tight.
– There is a grainy, shimmering look to the screen. Although it is in the realm of the HD screen display, the screen of Dell Inspirion 13 5000 wasp is not as bright or brilliant as the displays of other laptops within the same price range.
– The keyboard of this laptop is one of the least comfortable keyboards we typed in. Perhaps the reason is that it only has a 1.1mm travel distance.
Verdict With a solid performance and a compact built, we recommend this hybrid laptop for everyone who prefers a tablet and a laptop wrapped in one device.
