Chassis, connectors, Dell Inspiron 15 3501 screen
All dressed in black, this thin and light Ultrabook has a very sober appearance.
On the connection side, it is a shame to note the absence of USB-C but even more to deal with Ethernet adopting the Fast (10/100) and not Gigabit (10/100/1000) standard for some years. years.
Here we find a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 modules for remote connections and communications, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 USB 3.0 peripherals are connected to it.
Lovers of High Definition content such as videos will appreciate finding a screen adopting Full HD definition in a 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Dell Inspiron 15 3501 performance, autonomy
This Dell Inspiron 15 3501 is a slim and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
It is based on a good amount of 8 GB RAM, which is very appreciable for multitasking, as well as a low-consumption Quad Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake processor. This Ultrabook thus delivers good general performance capable of satisfying a number of users.
And all the more so since the Quad Core i5 Tiger Lake integrates the Iris Xe (tested by us) . However, this graphics solution is significantly more efficient than the conventional Intel UHD 620.
Concretely with this discreet black laptop, you can watch photos and videos but also play titles that do not require too much graphic resources.
In addition, the onboard SSD storage clearly reinforces the responsiveness of this thin and light laptop PC on a daily basis compared to a hard drive. It guarantees, for example, much faster starts / stops, processing and launches of applications, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Remember that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, less energy and silent.
With its 256 GB, the SSD offers a capacity which is certainly sufficient for a number of uses but is inferior to the standard of hard disks.
In the event that additional space is needed, an external storage unit can be used. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to take advantage of fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the controlled weight, expect about 5 hours on battery in light use.
