Today, Dell is offering up a substantial discount on the Inspiron 15 5000 laptop. If you’re in need of a powerful 15.6-inch device, this is the perfect time to buy. With a full HD display, a Skylake CPU, a dedicated graphics card, and a sizable hard drive, this laptop offers a complete computing experience wherever you go.
Inside, this model features a sixth generation dual-core 2.5GHz Intel Core i7-6500U CPU, a discrete AMD Radeon R5 M335 graphics card (with 4GB of memory), 8GB of DDR3L RAM (1600MHz), a 1TB 5400RPM hard drive, a DVD burner, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi support. As for the 15.6-inch display, it benefits from a full HD resolution of 1920×1080, an anti-glare coating, and LED backlighting.
The Inspiron 15 5000 ships with Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) by default, but a license for Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) is included at no extra charge. When you go through the upgrade process, you’ll have access to loads of great features like the Cortana personal assistant, Xbox One local game streaming, the Windows Store, game DVR, and a handful of significant user interface improvements.
Even if you typically lean towards desktop PCs, there’s still a lot to love here. The built-in touchpad is larger and more precise than it was on older models, the keyboard is spill-resistant, and it even sports a number pad on the right-hand side. And since it has a built-in HDMI 1.4a port, you can easily plug into your monitor or HDTV.
Better yet, the four cell 40WHr battery offers up to seven hours of battery life. And if you plan on taking long trips away from power outlets, you’re in luck. The battery is removable, so you can swap in a spare during your long journeys. With a little bit of planning, you’ll never be stuck without power.
Typically, this configuration retails for $845.85, but Dell is offering up a discount when you buy directly. And when you use coupon code “AFFLT549” during the checkout process, the sub-total drops down to $549 — a 35% total discount off the sticker price. This sale won’t last forever though, so get your order in quickly.
