This Dell Inspiron 16 5620 against the competition
This Dell Inspiron 16 5620 is now available at: Darty and the fnac† It is positioned as one of the few in its category to offer such a recent processor (Alder Lake) with such a large number of cores, but also a fingerprint reader.
Chassis, connectors, screen of this Dell Inspiron 16 5620
It has a sober and elegant appearance with its thin and light silver Titan Gray design.
The connectivity integrated in this versatile Ultrabook is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV, for example Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax modules (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) to communicate and connect wirelessly remotely, an audio port as well as 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when you connect USB 3.0 devices.
You can authenticate through fingerprint recognition via Windows Hello technology because a biometric reader is integrated.
The chiclet keyboard is decorated with a practical lighting solution for the keys to better distinguish them in the case of reduced ambient light.
Too bad to see the lack of a numeric keypad when this functionality is standard from 15 inches to make entering numbers easier.
The screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content with its Full HD definition, while the 16/10th format is more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9th. The screen also uses IPS technology with wide viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically. On the other hand, the colorimetry here is classic, lower than that of high-end IPS panels. Because it is anti-glare, the screen is also more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, autonomy of this Dell Inspiron 16 5620
This Dell Inspiron 16 5620 is an elegant High Definition laptop designed for general mobile use.
It delivers good overall performance and also under multimedia work with multicore and RAM such as photo editing or video conversion as it is based on Intel Alder Lake low-power Core i7-1255U processor with 10 hybrid cores coupled with 16 GB of RAM.
However, if the goal is to frequently perform work that consumes processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to use a PC equipped with a non-low-power processor and/or suitable dedicated graphics instead. Map.
Indeed, there is no dedicated graphics card on board here. All graphics are therefore managed by the Intel Iris Xe, a solution housed in the Core i7 Alder Lake.
In practice, thanks to the Iris Xe, you can view photos and videos, but also play modest titles.
The storage here is entrusted to an SSD which clearly boosts the reactivity and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, especially the start/stops, processing and software launches are much faster and we reach the cards of online games faster.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard disk, but also consumes less energy, is more shock-resistant and quieter.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity that matches the standard of hard drives. However, if you need extra space, you can use an external storage space. Preferring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option to take advantage of fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook, whose controlled weight and finesse facilitate transport, bet on about 8 hours of battery with light use.
