Dell Inspiron 3558 is a 5th generation laptop for students who are on a budget without trying to break the bank. The retail price of this laptop is around Rs 25000/- Let's breakdown the performance and review of the Dell Inspiron Core i3 5th Gen -3558 Laptop.
You can't upgrade the components but it is very difficult on the bottom, Dell Inspiron Core i3 5th Gen -3558 Laptop has two speakers and some vents for CPU and a removable battery pack. The design of this notebook is pretty bare bones. As this is a low priced notebook don’t expect anything spectacular. With saying this I won't say it is a bad looking laptop at all. The laptop comes in a 4.8 pounds
The exteriors are also made out of plastic and you also get patterned finish there which adds really a nice touch for the ports on the left you got your charging points, exhaust fan, HDMI port, USB 3 and an SD card reader. On the right side, you get the headphone jack, USB 2.0 and an optical drive. You can also see the Kensington slot.
The built quality is average and there is a reflection on the top. The keyboard flex was good. Having dimensions of 381.4 x 267.6 x 25.6 mm. It comes with a one year warranty period. The power button is available above the keyboard on the top right.

The one TB drive is very slow. The Geekbenchmark score is 2111 on single core and 4351 on multi-core. He chipset provided is pretty capable of college work and mini high school work. It is not suitable for heavy duties. The Intel HD graphic cards serve better when games played on lowest resolution where you get around 40 to 50 frames per second. Dell did a good job with the fan sound which is light to the medium usage you can hardly hear running.
The HD display with 1366 x 768 resolution is good. Text can be fuzzy at times and the color reproduction is poor. Which is expected at this kind of price range. The lapbook is comfortable to carry around with its light weight and comfortable design. The color calibration is awful. It got a 62% of sRGB and 46 percent of adobe RGB.
