In this Dell Inspiron 15 5593 review, we will look at a member of a family of laptops designed for office and home use.

Dell has to sacrifice a lot to achieve such a low price for a powerhouse. The laptop is covered in flimsy plastic and metal shell that is common for devices of this price range. It features a 15-inch FullHD screen and a full-size keyboard.

The look of the laptop isn’t something worth mentioning in this Dell Inspiron 15 5593 review. The device is designed to work and fortunately, it does.

The star among Dell Inspiron 15 5593 specs is the 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 CPU paired with RAM of 8GB, onboard storage of 512 GB SSD, and 1 TB HDD.

The G7 at the end of the chip’s name means the CPU belongs to the newer and more powerful Intel’s Ice Lake lineup. However, it’s quite confusing that the chip comes with Nvidia MX230 GPU and vRAM of 4GB.

The GPU is entry-level so all it can do is some Windows work and simple gaming. It also holds the laptop back and affects the battery life improvement and power-saving ability of the device.

Gaming Performance, Or Lack Thereof

If you are on the market for a versatile laptop that can at least run PUBG, you should look elsewhere.

The game can barely run on this one at 20FPS paired with the lowest settings. CS:GO caps at 25PFS so unless you want to kill time with Solitaire, this isn’t the device for you.

If the low frame rate hasn’t deterred you, the heat will. When testing CS:GO for this Dell Inspiron 15 5593 review, the laptop gets so hot that it started throttling and the game experience lots of lags.

Using the one with Iris Plus graphics brings about a great improvement. There is no frame rate improvement to be seen but the throttling isn’t a problem anymore.

Photo And Video Editing

When we edited videos with Premiere Pro for this Dell Inspiron 15 5593 review, the process run with some issues along the way. The timeline experienced some frame-drops and there were some mild effects.

This was one of the rare occasions the Nvidia GPU show a perk over the Iris Plus graphics – it managed to offer an H.264 export in half of the time it took the latter to do so.

Battery Life

With our usual workload, which involves a lot of typing, some Photoshop tasks, surfing the web, and chatting, most other laptops can hold up for around 4 to 6 hours. However, this one could only give us a maximum of 3 hours, and even Dell Inspiron 15 5593 price cannot be used as an excuse for this performance. And plus, it takes as much time to fully charge the device.

Dell Inspiron 15 5593 Details

The laptop’s display is acceptable with 220 nits and the 700:1 contrast ratio isn’t so bad at all. The color gamut stands at 55% so unless you have no other choices, editing videos or photos on this laptop is advised against.

Games and movies look decent but not the best you can get at this price bracket. So in short, you can work on this laptop but it doesn’t do anything more than that.

One of the rare perks we would like to point out in this Dell Inspiron 15 5593 review is the keyboard and the trackpad. They do their job and your typing speed won’t be affected. The Numpad is available so if you have to use a lot of Excel, this is a piece of good news.

The speakers are nothing to write home about. They do the basic job of speakers but don’t expect anything mind-blowing.

Port-wise, you have one HDMI port, three USB-A ports, one SD card reader, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, and a 3.5 mm combo jack.

The fingerprint sensor can recognize you in 8 out of 10 times we tried to log in to test it for this Dell Inspiron 15 5593 review.

A Learning Experience

With all the perks and drawbacks of this laptop, it’s a hard sale to even users with minimal needs.

Even with Dell Inspiron 15 5593 deals in place, the price of the laptop is just too much especially when there are better options like Dell XPS 13 and Lenovo’s Yoga series.
