Even though the Dell Inspiron 5559 core i3 Notebook is a mid-range laptop, it features a sturdy, well-finished build-quality which is very typical of Dell. This particular model comes in all black with a matte finish on the lid. The Dell logo, however, is etched in a glossy finish which makes it stand out on the matte background. The Chiclet style keyboard inside has nice easy-to-press keys which have a decent amount of travel. It gives a fatigue-free experience during long typing sessions. The right edge of the notebook features a 3.5mm headphone jack, two USB 2.0 ports, an optical drive and a Kensington Lock slot for security.

The left edge features a 3-in-1 card reader slot, a USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, a grill for fan outlet, an RJ-45 Ethernet Slot, and the power socket. The back edge of the notebook is bare and does not feature any ports. The trackpad is a decent sized one and has enough friction to make it accurate in daily usage. The left-click and the right-click are clearly demarcated with a small vertical line drawn on the trackpad. The trackpad sits off-centre on the notebook. The design review of Dell Inspiron 5559 points out the sturdy build and utilities built into the notebook.


The screen on the Dell Inspiron 5559 is a 15.6-inch HD LED Backlit Display with ‘Prolife Display’ technology. It sports a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This ratio is perfect for watching movies as well as playing games. The colour saturation is good and the viewing angles are really wide. The contrast ratio is also good, with a minor colour shifting happening at the extreme edges of the viewing angles.

The big 15.6-inch screen is also useful for productivity tasks. But the 1366 x 768 pixels resolution on a 15.6” display is not super-sharp. The output tends to be a bit soft especially if the screen is filled with text. The ideal resolution on a 15.6” display is at least full HD. Otherwise, the display is bright and well-saturated.
