Dell I35673380BLK or i3567-3380BLK-PUS Review

Unlike a lot of inexpensive laptops out there in the market, Dell I35673380BLK compromises very little when it comes to hardware specs. It has everything a user could need to accomplish daily computing tasks. For instance, it comes with 7th generation Intel Core i3-7100u processor, 8GB RAM and 1 TB hard drive. You can expand memory up to 16GB. However, Model: i3567-3380BLK-PUS or I35673380BLK is not a touchscreen laptop. As this laptop runs on Windows 10, you really don’t need touchscreen interface. There are other options for touchscreen lovers. For instance, you can take a look at  DELL I3567-3636BLK-PUS which is a touchscreen laptop and comes integrated with Intel Core i3-7100u processor, 8GB RAM and 1TB hard drive. Both the laptop comes with CD/DVD drive.  These are not high-end laptops and not suitable for high-end PC gaming. Games like Battlefield 1, Mafia3 and GTA V won’t run smoothly on this machine. However, you can play Minecraft, Sims etc. on this machine. Dell I35673380BLK Inspiron laptop comes with integrated graphics. Again, this laptop is not suitable for heavy video editing and 3D designing.

If you are looking for a cheap and affordable gaming laptop, that also supports HD video editing and some 3D designing, then you can consider Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 laptop. It offers more powerful Intel core i5-7200u processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM and NVIDIA Geforce 940MX graphics with 2GB DDR5 memory.  Other features of the laptop include a 256GB Solid State Drive, Full HD display and backlit keyboard.

A solid state Drive is much faster than 5400 rpm hard drive. A full HD display delivers more accurate colors compared to 1366 X 768p display coming with Dell I35673380BLK. The Dell laptop also lacks backlit keyboard. You can replace HDD with Solid state Drive if you have little knowledge about laptop repairing.

However, if you are looking for a laptop with backlit keyboard and Full HD display for home use, you can consider Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575-33BM. It has Intel core i3-7100u processor and 1TB hard drive but it offers only 4GB RAM (expandable up to 32GB). This laptop offers 4 USB ports including one USB 3.1 type C port. This feature is missing in Acer Model: i3567-3380BLK-PUS.

The15.6” (measured diagonally) display of Dell I35673380BLK supports max resolution of 1366 X 768p which means it supports playback up to 720p but not 1080p. However, with the help of HDMI you can watch content in full HD resolution on a compatible HDTV or monitor.

Intel core i3-7100u operates with 2.4 GHz frequency while Intel core i5-7200u operates with 2.5GHz of base frequency and, with the help of Turbo boost technology, the frequency can rise up to 3.1 GHz on system demand. The frequency of the i3-7100u can’t be increased further. Both are dual core processors. As told earlier, Intel core i3-7100u is good for home users, students and for home office use.  However, if you need to deal with HD video editing, some 3d rendering or PC gaming, then a machine with combination of core i5 processor and discrete graphics is more preferable. Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 offers you such a combination. However, the Acer laptop is not a workstation grade laptop.

Dell I35673380BLK comes with Integrated Intel HD 620 graphics which can run low end PC games. However, it supports DirectX 12. The Dell laptop comes preinstalled with 8GB DDR4 2400MHz memory and the memory is expandable up to 16GB. There are two memory slots in this laptop. The 1TB hard drive is preloaded with Windows 10 Home 64 bit operating system. You won’t get full version of Microsoft office.

When it comes to ports and connectivity features, there is nothing excited about Dell I35673380BLK. You get 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1USB 3.0 port, HDMI, RJ 45 LAN port, headphone/microphone combo and a SD card reader. There is an integrated webcam but the keyboard is not backlit.
