Dell optimized this laptop for being a reliable “powerhouse” that will get everyone through the day. An AMD version is available, and it is equipped with powerful specs and has an excellent aluminum design. The Dell Inspiron 15 5515 has an excellent trackpad, keyboard, internal thermals, and a matte touchscreen. The cost isn’t much to be concerned about as it is currently available at an affordable price – at a low-to-mid range for a touchscreen of this size and type.
There is a steady hinge that allows you to use this device like a 2-in-1. So whether you want to use it as a regular laptop, tablet, for viewing videos or presentations, etc., it’s easy to set it up in the correct “mode” without any wobbling. When using the 5515 as a laptop, the full-size keyboard and trackpad are designed for a comfortable typing and navigation experience. The keycaps are 6.4% bigger than those of the previous generation, and the touchpad is spacious.
Another essential thing to note in this Dell Inspiron 15 5515 review is the environmentally conscious steps taken in its design and packaging. There are Energy Star qualified and US CEC compliant models available. These 2-in-1s also meet international standards such as China RoHS, Japan Energy Law, EU RoHS, and more.
This PC should stay cool with its redefined thermal system, dual heat pipes that move the heat away. The dynamic bearing system is designed to be “fluid” to ensure that the laptop runs quietly while still performing optimally. Everything is ready to go as soon as the device is turned on. It has a fast boot-up time, and you can log in via the (optional) fingerprint reader and Windows Hello. There is a lid-open sensor that gets the 2-in-1 started right when you open it.
