5 reasons to BUY the Dell Inspiron 15 3593
1. Intel Core i7-1065G7 inside
The Dell Inspiron 15 3593 can be configured with Intel Ice Lake CPU. You can pick one with the i7-1065G7. That means 10nm CPU, fast performance, and Intel Iris Plus G4 integrated graphics – one of the fastest iGPUs on the market right now. Briefly, with Dell Inspiron 15 3593 you can enjoy the latest tech from Intel.
2. The keyboard
We have a full-layout keyboard with a NumberPad section. The key travel is good and there is nice clicky feedback too. The keyboard of Dell Inspiron 15 3593 is very comfortable to type on and if you have to use it for work (long period of time) you will be happy with it.
3. The I/O
Ok, let’s check the ports of that device – a USB Type-C 3.1 (Gen. 1) port (comes with dedicated GPU machines only), HDMI connector, an RJ-45 connector, two USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen. 1) ports, an audio jack, optical disk drive reader,USB Type-A 2.0 port, and an SD card reader. That is a decent amount of ports, probably everything you might need.
4. Cool innards
During our tests, the Dell Inspiron 15 3593 reached 46C. Not bad at all.
The upgradability of this machine is fine – you can upgrade the memory up to 32GB DDR4 with 3200 MHz memory frequency – a rare case, especially in this price range. In terms of storage, we found a 2.5″ SATA drive slot and one M.2 PCIe x4 slot that can be upgraded with max capacity up to 2TB and 1TB respectively.
3 reasons NOT to BUY the Dell Inspiron 15 3593
1. Not-so-good screen
The screen (BOE NT15N4-M9P74 BOE0802) isn’t the greatest, but at least it is comfortable for long periods of work. There is PWM usage but with 28 kHz frequency – a very high one and as we already said, it is a safe and comfortable panel for prolonged periods of reading. There are some drawbacks – TN panel, bad viewing angles, only 50% sRGB coverage, the maximum brightness is low (200 nits), and the contrast ratio is so-so (290:1).
2. The build quality
Another weak point of the Dell Inspiron 15 3593 is the build quality – it is an all-plastic build and the chassis is flexible if you are not careful with it. You can’t open the lid with one hand – if you try to do that it’ll flex badly and you will hear some strange sounds from it.
3. The price
When it comes to prices, our Dell machine isn’t the best deal. There are better laptops with better screens and build quality that cost the same as the Inspiron 15 3593. For example, for the same amount of money you can get the Lenovo Ideapad S540 (15) – it comes with an aluminum build and an IPS panel.
