The Dell Inspiron i5555-2866SLV is a bestselling budget laptop that has been praised for its AMD Quad Core processor, its large storage drive and for its 8GB of RAM. While it does not feature a dedicated AMD or NVIDIA GPU, the Dell Inspiron i5555-2866SLV does feature a Radeon R6 integrated graphics chip. The Radeon R6 allows users to enjoy casual gaming and will even run titles such as Diablo III and Counter Strike: GO on medium to high settings. But users who are after more powerful graphics will have to look at stretching their budgets a bit for a laptop with dedicated graphics.


Not everyone can afford to spend upwards of $700 on a gaming laptop. But thankfully for companies like Dell, users have a choice of cheap laptops that allow for casual gaming. Being a budget laptop, don’t expect premium build quality, so expect a bit of display and keyboard flex.

The integrated Radeon R6 Carrizo graphics chip won’t win any awards, but it will allow gamers to enjoy titles such as Counter strike: GO and Diablo III. But upcoming titles such as Battlefield 1 and COD: Infinity Warfare will struggle with frame rates even on the lowest of settings. Powered by a Quad Core AMD A10-8700P processor and 8GB of RAM, the Dell Inspiron i5555-2866SLV will easily cope with your day-to-day tasks. The RAM also powers the Radeon graphics chip and while it will cope fine, we do recommend upgrading the RAM for better performance.

The 1TB mechanical hard drive offers ample space for games and multimedia files, but users who are after better performance should look at purchasing an SSD. The audio is quite average, but the software does allow for a bit of tweaking to get the audio right. The 1366 x 768 display is rather average, but users can still enjoy video streaming at 720p. The 10-finger touchscreen is fairly responsive and allows for users to effortlessly navigate around Windows 10. So if you are on a tight budget and after a laptop for work and casual gaming then the Dell Inspiron i5555-2866SLV is worth considering for its price.
