Updated: 8 May, 2015 seen 2,237

I noticed there is a new release of a Dell Inspirion 5000 series laptop on Amazon sold by Legendary Juny and Fulfilled by Amazon and decided to wrap up few of my thoughts about this laptop model. Previous week I took a look on Dell Inspiron i3543-000BLK Read here: Dell Inspiron i3543-000BLK 15 Inch Laptop Review

Now - Dell brand would be my second choice just after HP brand. The thing is actually pretty simple - I'm a core HP laptop user for more than 7 years. But I have used a few replacement Dell Laptops time after time and I have never experienced any serious problems with them. So yes, Dell is trusted brand by millions.

Speaking of this series: Dell Inspirion 17 5000 model. First I would like to mention it's 17 inch wide monitor, this laptop won't be very suitable for transporting so if you are up to for this model - consider your travel habits. If size matters and you are looking to have a 17 inch wide screen then go for it.  Weight is another issue for this model - 6 pounds is not very lightweight, but hey it has some gear inside.

You will get almost latest 5th generations Intel Core processor and a pretty fast memory of 4GB. Plenty of hard drive space (500GB) and few other extras.

My verdict is short - this laptop will suite you coming years if you will use it as your desktop computer with rare travel options. If you prefer mobility  - choose another laptop.

From the manufacturer:
