Just because your use of a laptop is limited to e-mail and web browsing sessions, doesn’t mean you should buy any model.It is necessary to be able to count on a quality laptop that will not let you down in 2 years, due to obsolescence.In fact, it’s all about finding a product with the right price/quality ratio. You only have to take it in your hand to see that the material is of quality.
A laptop that meets all the requirements! This is what the Inspiron 5000 from Dell seems to be.
This model is a mid-range model with a screen size of 14 inches. Easy to take along from time to time. Also note that this model is equipped with a touch screen; always interesting for when you get tired of the slippery mouse pad or when no flat surface is available when you have this Inspiron 5000 on your lap. The materials appear to be designed to last several years. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care Dell has been taken in the overall design of this model.
The processor chosen for this model is a Intel Core i5-10210U. Dell basic idea that you’re not going to put too much strain on that laptop. A logical decision in relation to the intended use of this computer: surfing the Internet and sufficient computing power. With 8 Gb of RAM, it Inspiron 5000is a good product. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
The 256 Gb make this laptop a mid-range laptop in terms of available space. In any case, it should be enough for a use like surfing the web. And when you reach the limit, if you get there, you can always buy an external hard drive or a local file server like Synlogy NAS.

Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
On the sound side, it Inspiron 5000 has good components: board and integrated speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
The processor installed on this model is a Intel Core i5-10210U sufficient one for audio and video. With this, you are sure to have a scalable product (if needed), and that will fit perfectly with your peripherals (speakers, video projectors, etc…).

Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 7 hours before the breakdown.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 256 Gb SSD hard drive. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.Thanks to this, Dell was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
Even if a portable laptop stays at the hotel 80% of the time, it is relevant to have a screen that is not too big so as not to be disturbed, but big enough to enjoy the image. The Inspiron 5000 is a fair alternative with iis 14 inches.
