Performance, battery life of the Dell Inspiron 15-3501-581
This Dell Inspiron 15-3501-581 is a 15-inch High Definition laptop computer designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
It delivers good performance in everyday use as in office automation and surfing the Internet because it relies on a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking as well as a low consumption Tiger Lake Core i3-1115G4 processor.
Certainly like any Intel Core i3 or AMD Ryzen 3, the Core i3 Turbo Tiger Lake shows its limits under software requiring processor resources.
However, it has the advantage of integrating the Intel UHD G4 graphics part which is clearly superior to the classic Intel UHD 620. In fact, the Intel G4 is positioned at the level of an entry-level dedicated graphics card.
As a result, with this thin and light laptop PC, you can watch photos and videos as well as play titles that don\’t consume much graphic resources.
In addition, this Ultrabook incorporates an SSD, a silent storage solution but also more robust than a hard drive, less energy or even much faster.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, we obtain a much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than with a simple hard drive. This implies, for example, much faster starts / stops and launches of software, as well as a faster arrival on the cards of online games in particular.
The capacity of this SSD is 256 GB, which is enough for a number of uses. But this turns out to be below what hard drives offer as standard.
In any case, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, nomads will appreciate the battery life of about 7 hours on battery of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by its finesse and its weight of less than 2 kg.
