Dell Inspiron 15 5000 - $649.99
The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 gaming series of notebooks brings the performance of more expensive gaming laptops down to a reasonable price. That reasonable price depends on what type of processor you want inside your gaming notebook though.
The AMD version of the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 starts at $649. That’s a full $150 less than the same model with an Intel Core processor. Either version has an SD Card reader, 3 USB 3.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, an Ethernet port and a headset jack.
Intel models start with a Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. They also boast at least a NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics card with 4GB of RAM. You get 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, AMD A-10 Quad Core processor and 4GB Radeon RX 460 graphics with the AMD version. You can boost all these specs through Dell’s configuration tool. The most that this model can weigh is 5.62 pounds.
These low prices do come with at least a single casualty. Both Dell Inspiron 15 5000 models don’t come with backlit keyboards as a standard. You’ll have to add it during checkout, bumping up your costs.
