Dell i3567-5185BLK Review

Nowadays Dell laptops have become very popular because they are reasonably priced and are usually quite generous with specs. Dell i3567-5185BLK 15.6” laptop is a good example of this. This laptop is equipped with 8GB DDR4 RAM (max 16GB), 1TB 5400rpm hard drive and a 7th generation core i5-7200u processor. This combination of hardware can perform day to day tasks with ease and also support CPU demanding jobs like photo and video editing, video transcoding etc. However, you won’t get fast performance from such programs. Solid State Drive is more preferable for such tasks as SSD can access data very fast compared to traditional 5400 rpm hard drive. Another drawback with Dell i3567-5185BLK is that it doesn’t come with discrete graphics and Intel HD 620 graphics is the only graphics option for this laptop. It supports low end games like Minecraft, league of legends, Sims 4 etc., but demanding games like Watch Dogs 2, Battlefield 1, Mafia 3 etc will run in low to medium details and settings. You can also consider Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 which is powered by Intel core i5-7200u processor but offers NVIDIA Geforce 940MX graphics with 2GB DDR5 RAM plus 8GB DDR4 system RAM (max 32GB). It comes with 256GB Solid state Drive. Moreover, it comes with Full HD display ( 1920 X 1080) while Model: I3567-5185BLK offers max resolution 1366 X 768p which supports playback up to 720p resolution only. For HD video editing full HD resolution is preferable over 720p HD resolution.

Again, Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 comes with backlit keyboard which is missing in the Dell laptop. As this Acer Aspire is a premium laptop, it costs you more but it’s worth the money you spend on it. None of these laptops are touchscreen enabled. Getting back to Dell i3567-5185BLK, the i5-7200u has two cores and each core operates with base frequency of 2.5 GHz while the frequency can rise up to 3.1GHz. It has 3MB of cache memory.

You can easily replace hard drive with a Solid State Drive and get better performance. Else, you can consider HP 15.6″ HD Touchscreen Laptop Computer which comes with more powerful Intel core i7-7500u processor (2.7GHz-3.5GHz), 256GB Solid State Drive and 8GB DDR4 RAM. It is touchscreen laptop as well while Dell i3567-5185BLK is a non-touch laptop.  The HP laptop also offers Intel HD 620 graphics.

It also comes with SD card and a webcam. Unlike Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4, it doesn’t come with USB 3.1 type C port and backlit keyboard.
