2020 Dell Inspiron 15 3000, D15 15.6″ HD Laptop
2020 Newest Dell Inspiron 15 3000 is a D15 series 15.6-inch laptop with a non-touch HD display, an entry level Intel Celeron 4205U processor, large 1TB HDD hard drive, 4GB DDR4 memory, Windows 10 64-bit Home operating system, and good connectivity options including a DVD-RW Optical Drive, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth, HDMI and webcam.
The quarter two of 2019 release dual core Intel Celeron 4205U processor (2MB cache, 2 cores & 2 threads) works at a fixed speed of 1.8GHz without the turbo boost function and no hyperthreading. It has an average CPU PassMark benchmark score of 1251 at the moment for a low mid-range performance. You can purchase the same laptop with the 8GB RAM, 8GB RAM & 256GB SSD + 1TB HD or 12GB memory and 256GB SSD + 1TB HD.
4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR4 SDRAM memory at 2666MHz is an OK amount of memory to have 2-3 browsers and apps open at once without experiencing delays or freezing. But you will be better off going for the larger 8GB or 12GB options for better multitasking power. 1TB at 5400rpm rotating speed 2.5-inch SATA Hard Drive offers plenty of local storage space if you have many multimedia files- photos, videos and games to save. But again at this day and age most of the computer users may want to choose the version with the 256GB SSD and more memory.
The 15.6-inch anti-glare LED-backlit high definition non-touch display has the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and 16:9 image aspect ratio, good contrast and vivid colors. The built-in graphics card is the Intel UHD 610 with a video card benchmark score of 726 and adequate for the daily multimedia tasks. It performs a little less than the Intel HD 4400 overall and only some modern games can be played at the lowest settings and resolutions. The Waves MaxxAudio Pro and the built-in speakers offer better than average sound quality at this level.
Black Dell Inspiron 15 3000 weighs 4.8 pounds and measures 0.89 x 14.96 x 10.16 inches. The typical TDP of 15 watts helps the built-in 3-cell 42Whr battery to last longer. Connectivity options include the 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth, Ethernet RJ-45 connector, 2 x USB 3.1 gen 1 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI output, an SD Card Reader, and a headphone/microphone combo jack. You can’t really expect this machine to be very fast and powerful. It is an entry level laptop for basic daily tasks like the web surfing, word processing, spreadsheets, streaming videos and playing simple games. You just need to pay 125 to 155 dollars more for twice or three times the memory and SSD as well as the 1TB hard drive.
