This Dell Inspiron 16 5625 against the competition
This Dell Inspiron 16 5625 is currently shown in promotion at Darty and meets very few competitors in its category, where it is one of the few to offer such a high-definition display with such natural colors, but also equipped with such a powerful processor (Octo Core).
Chassis, connectors, screen of this Dell Inspiron 16 5625
With its thin and light Platinum Silver light aluminum design, it has an elegant and discreet appearance.
This versatile laptop is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) and Bluetooth 5.2 to connect and communicate remotely, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to, for example, a TV or monitor, its audio port or its 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0), allowing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very useful for better distinguishing the keys when the ambient light is reduced.
Too bad, however, that there is no numeric keypad while this functionality is standard from 15 inches to facilitate entering numbers.
The screen will particularly appeal to those looking for a Very High Definition display as it uses a 3K definition much higher than Full HD, associated here with a 16/10 format which is more comfortable in height than the standard 16 /9th. Thanks to the IPS and sRGB specifications, the screen also has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles and colors are more faithful than average. In addition, because it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors).
Performance, autonomy of this Dell Inspiron 16 5625
This Dell Inspiron 16 5625 is a thin and light Very High Definition laptop intended for general nomadic use.
The general performance it offers can satisfy many users because it is built around 16 GB of RAM, very useful in multitasking, as well as an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor Ryzen 7 5825U low consumption Barcelo (= Cezanne Refesh).
Those who occasionally perform modest multimedia processing with RAM and multicores (eg photo editing, video conversion) will be satisfied with this core that also allows you to view photos and videos, but also play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated in Ryzen 7.
However, if the goal is to frequently perform tasks that require processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card.
In any case, SSD storage clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Although an SSD is much faster than a hard disk, it is also less energy-consuming, more robust and quieter.
As a result, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, the start/stops are much faster as well as the processing and launching of software and we reach the cards of online games faster.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in line with what hard drives offer as standard. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage space. Preferring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option to get fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this versatile Very High Definition laptop computer, which is as easy to transport as an Ultrabook thanks to its controlled weight and finesse, you can expect about 7 hours on the battery with light use.
