In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

Dell Inspiron 15 5579 in-depth review

From the Dell Inspiron 15 5578 to the Inspiron 15 5579, changes are mostly under the hood. Now the notebook comes at a new price, which in our opinion is a little bit too high but also has something to offer in return - the brand new Core i7-8550U CPU on board relying on Intel's UHD 620 integrated graphics for graphically intensive tasks. What hasn't been changed, however, is the chassis. Sporting an identical shell, the Inspiron 15 5579 delivered a similar feel while working on it but we would like to see how the hardware changes have reflected on the overall user experience. Also, with the higher price, we expected a bit better screen since the one in the previous model suited only the lower-end to mid-range configurations. You can find some of the available configurations here[...]
