Dell I55675734GRY or i5567-5734GRY-PUS Review

Selecting a good budget laptop could be a daunting assignment, especially if you are going to use it to accomplish specific tasks. Powered by 7th generation Intel core i5-7200u and 8GB RAM, Dell I55675734GRY or i5567-5734GRY-PUS can do little bit of everything. The laptop is fast enough for day to day computing tasks like running office applications, web browsing, watching movies and videos and emailing/skype. It can run latest PC games but all games will not run smoothly on this machine. You can also do some HD video editing and transcoding job on this machine. The laptop supports AutoCAD and Solidworks as well. However, full HD display and a Solid State Drive are preferable for such tasks.  As Dell i5567-5734GRY-PUS is a budget laptop, compromises have been made to make it cost effective. It comes with 1TB 5400rpm hard drive while a solid state drive is known to boost performance to some extent. Again, it comes with low resolution display (1366 X 768) which can’t play Full HD content in 1080p resolution. It also lacks USB 3.1 Type C port.  A full HD display (1920 X 1080) offers you better clarity and perfect colors. If you extend your budget a little, you can get Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 which is equipped with Intel core i5-7200u processor, 8GB RAM plus NVIDIA Geforce 940MX graphics with 2GB GDDR5 video memory.
