Dell has decided to give its Inspiron range a facelift. Office PCs now leave the choice of AMD or Intel processors, with screens from 13 to 16 inches.
After renewing its Gaming range, Dell is launching new Inspiron laptops with the latest processors available, both from Intel and AMD. These are the Inspiron 13, Inspiron 14, Inspiron 14 2-in-1, Inspiron 15 and Inspiron 16 Plus.
For the Inspiron 13 and Inspiron 16 Plus, Dell opts for Intel-only architectures. On the other hand, for 14 and 15 inch PCs, the manufacturer leaves the choice between Intel and AMD solutions.
The choice between Intel and AMD
For versions with Intel chip, Dell offers the same three models: Core i3 1115G4, Core i5 11300H and Core i7 11370H. AMD side, all Inspiron will have configurations around the same three chips (Ryzen 3 5300U, Ryzen 5 5500U and Ryzen 7 5700U). Only the Inspiron 14-inch 2-in-1 PC passes its turn for the Ryzen 3.
For the graphics part, again, Dell has chosen to house all its Inspiron in the same boat. Whatever the models, Intel has seen fit to leave the possibility of equipping itself with a Geforce MX450 with 2 GB of memory if the integrated processor of the Intel Core is not enough. AMD, for its part, relies on the integrated processor of its Zen 3.
For the memory, it will be possible to choose, depending on the model, from 4 to 16 GB of RAM. As for storage, you have a choice of 128GB 2TB SSD.
Beautiful displays for the Inspiron 13 and Inspiron 16 Plus
On the screen side, some models stand out a bit from the others. The Inspiron 13 thus has a 16:10 screen which makes the 13-inch format a little more comfortable. It also has an FHD + or QHD + resolution. The Inspiron 15, although full HD like the rest of the range, leaves the possibility of opting for touch or not. The Inspiron 16 Plus offers a 3K display (3072 × 1920 pixels), supported by compatibility with GTX or RTX graphics cards.
For European models, the colors offered are not really legion. All Inspiron sport the same color: “Platinum silver with tonal blocking”. Only the Inspiron 14 2-in-1, if we look to the AMD version, will leave the possibility of a “Mist blue”. We will console ourselves with the very attractive prices of these computers, which certainly owe a lot to the very similar design between these different models and the economies of scale that must have resulted.

The Inspiron 13 inches is on sale from 599 euros, the Inspiron 14 inches from 549.99 euros. For the 14-inch 2-in-1 model, that starts at $ 729 while the 15-inch Inspiron trades from $ 549.99.
