DELL INSPIRON 15 3501 Core i5
The Dell Inspiron 15 3501 Core i5 is the direct successor to last year’s Inspiron 15 3501. It introduces a brand new chassis design that’s both thinner and lighter for increased portability. There are a few other surprises as well to help the Inspiron 15 3501 edge out many other models in its budget price range. The revamped Inspiron 15 3501 design significantly shrinks the bottom “chin” bezel of the 3501 for a greater screen-to-body ratio. The system now also utilizes similar hinges as found on the VivoBook, MSI Prestige, or HP Pavilion to lift the base at a slight angle for improved ergonomics and airflow. Most of the chassis continues to be plastic, however, and so the system doesn’t feel any more rigid or of higher quality than the older Inspiron 15 3501 despite the full-on redesign.
Overall CPU performance is within just a few percentage points of the average laptop in our database Dell Inspiron 15 3501 equipped with the same Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor. Performance sustainability is also good even though the initial Turbo Boost benefits are much smaller when compared to pricier alternatives like the Asus Expert Book B1 B1500CEAE or Honor Magic-Book 15 as shown by our Cine-Bench R15 xT loop results below.
The Inspiron 15 3501 Core i5 uses a different BOE panel than the one found on the older Inspiron 15 3501 (BOE NV15T06 vs. BOE NV15N3D). Despite this, core attributes are largely unchanged including the very narrow color space. Contrast ratio and response times are actually quite decent for a budget laptop, but the limited sRGB reproduction in particular is what ultimately separates this Inspiron display from a pricier XPS, Spectre, or Zen-Book alternative. Colors appear shallower and not nearly as vivid which is par for the course for most cheap laptops.
Key feedback is a tad lighter and softer than expected for a spongy feel. The Space and Enter keys in particular feel weaker than they should be when compared to the same keys on an HP Pavilion, Lenovo IdeaPad, or Asus Vivo-Book.
The clickpad is relatively large at 11.5 x 8 cm compared to 10.5 x 7.3 cm on the Asus Vivo-book 15 K513EQ or 11.5 x 7.4 cm on the 2021 HP Pavilion 15. Its surface is stickier than on many other clickpads as well particularly when gliding at slower or medium-slow speeds. It’s reliable enough for regular cursor control, but other actions like clicking or dragging-and-dropping can be tiring without actual buttons or a USB mouse.
The Dell Inspiron 15 3501 is perhaps one of the easiest budget laptops to service and upgrade. Performance-per-dollar is high, but you’ll have to get over the less-than-stellar chassis design.
