Dell's 15.6-inch, midrange notebook is a bland, chunky block. It has long been the case that the Inspiron lineup lacks any sort of aesthetic muse, and the Inspiron 15 5000 follows this trend. It's a plastic, silver slab bearing Dell's logo in a mirror sheen.
Lifting the lid reveals the 15.6-inch, 1080p screen surrounded by an almost offensively thick bezel and a plastic deck with a faux brushed-metal look. There's a fingerprint reader on the power button, and the keyboard is a black collection of island-style keys.
