The Dell Inspiron i5559-4682SLV Signature Edition is a bestselling 15.6-inch laptop that has been praised for its Skylake-based Intel processor, sharp Full-HD display, backlit keyboard, ample storage space, clean version of Windows 10, and for its Intel RealSense 3D camera. However, the slower hard drive that is quite common in budget friendly laptops will mean that you will have to wait longer for this laptop to boot into Windows and for it to launch apps. The Signature Edition range of laptops also have the added benefit of shipping without any third-party bloatware that might slow your laptop down.
Dell are known for their budget friendly offerings and rugged business machines. However, these laptops are usually full of unwanted third party apps and features that will slow down your machine. This is where Microsoft has stepped in and promises no third-party bloatware with their Signature Edition laptops.
This means that the Dell Inspiron i5559-4682SLV Signature Edition will only ship with a few Microsoft apps that you can easily remove from your laptop if you want a completely barebones Windows laptop. The Dell Inspiron i5559-4682SLV is an updated version of the Inspiron I5558-2144SLV and has now been beefed up with a newer sixth generation Intel Core i5-6200U processor for increased performance.
While the newer processor will support DDR4 RAM, Dell has decided to use the same DDR3L RAM as its predecessor. However, this is not a mark against the Dell Inspiron i5559-4682SLV as the installed 8GB of RAM will still feel snappy while surfing the web or working in more hardware intensive apps. A new processor also means a new Intel HD Graphics chip, which will mean slightly better performance for the casual gamer who enjoys titles such as Diablo 3, Warframe or CS: Go.
The Dell Inspiron i5559-4682SLV also sees an improvement in the display department, as it now features a Full-HD display so that you can enjoy your favorite 1080p media. In addition to the sharp display, the Dell Inspiron i5559-4682SLV also features a touchscreen panel with 10-finger multi-touch support that will allow you to easily navigate around Windows. Another new feature is the addition of an Intel RealSense 3D camera.
This allows the Dell Inspiron i5559-4682SLV to utilize Windows Hello functionality for quick and easy log-ins and enhanced security. You also get a backlit keyboard to allow you to work more comfortably in low light conditions. One of the only drawbacks is that like all budget laptops it has a slower 5400rpm hard drive. While it offers ample storage space, it will mean waiting longer for Windows to load and apps to launch.
