  • 1Description

With its 360° hinge design, the 15.6" Inspiron 15 5000 Series 5579 Multi-Touch 2-in-1 Notebook from Dell allows you to switch between four different modes. You can use Tent Mode for using recipes in real time, Stand Mode for movies on an airplane, Laptop Mode for typing your novel or emailing work, and Tablet Mode to make reading easier while you're reclined. The Inspiron 15 5579 measures just 0.8" thin and weighs 4.85 pounds.

The 15.6" TrueLife IPS display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio, 80/80/80/80° viewing angles, a 60 Hz refresh rate, LED backlighting, and multi-touch functionality, which allows you to utilize the touch features and functions in Windows 10 Home to further improve accessibility and productivity. You can swipe, tap, and resize apps at your preference. The integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620 chipset delivers a sharp, clear picture, and you'll also be able to output video to an external display using the built-in HDMI 1.4b output.

The system is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5-8250U Quad-Core processor that can be overclocked to 3.4 GHz. It also has 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM, a 1TB 5400 rpm SATA III 2.5" hard drive, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports (one with PowerShare), one USB 2.0 port Type-A port, one HDMI 1.4b port, a built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader, dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi (2x2), and Bluetooth 4.1. Other features include an integrated 720p webcam for video calls, a 480p infrared (IR) webcam that senses depth to enhance security with Windows Hello face authentication, dual integrated microphones, and stereo speakers that are driven by the Realtek ALC3253-VA3 codec with Waves MaxxAudio Pro.

Included with this system are a 45W AC adapter that operates using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz and a 3-cell / 42Wh lithium-ion battery that has a life of 300 discharge/charge cycles. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

General Features

Flexible Modes, Exciting Options

Flip into Action
With an 360° hinge, the Inspiron 5579 2-in-1 allows you to switch between four different modes: Tent Mode for using recipes in real time, Stand Mode for movies on the airplane, Laptop Mode for typing your novel or emailing work, and Tablet Mode makes reading while you're reclined more user-friendly.
Adjust with Ease
The Inspiron 15 5579 2-in-1 is a good blend between portability and performance. Its 15.6" display offers 40% more viewable area than a 13.3" screen, so you have more room to spread out your work, and more space to enjoy your movie.
Options Galore
An available backlit keyboard makes it nicer to work in dim environments and the Infrared Camera option works with 'Windows Hello' to log you in with quick and secure facial recognition.

Stylish

Ready for the Road
The popular, 15.6" size is well-suited for portability and convenience, while still giving you plenty of screen space for work and entertainment, or sharing a movie with a friend.
Maximize Screen Space
The 5579's design emphasizes more screen and less bezel, so your attention is drawn to that wide-angle display.
Designed to Impress
The dark gray exterior finish is matched with a smooth, matte black inside, offering an attractive, professional appearance that looks great for any occasion.

Built for Adaptability, Tested for Dependability

Stunning Sound and Vision
Each Inspiron 5579 comes with Waves MaxxAudio Pro audio and available Intel UHD 620 graphics with shared graphics memory, so your media looks and sounds great.
Get Connected
The Inspiron 5579 2-in-1 is equipped with 802.11ac Wi-Fi for fast, long-range wireless connectivity with less buffering and drops compared to older designs.

Designed for the Real World

Turn Up the Heat
From locker rooms to locked cars, Inspiron laptops are tested for survival in harsh short-term heat conditions of up to 149°F / 65°C.
Everything Hinges on It
Dell tests Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure they still feel tight, even after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times.
Keys to Success
Dell tests commonly used keys for 10 million keystrokes and touch pad buttons 1 million times with no failure. So go ahead, finish your novel.
Buttoned Up
No matter what you set your power and multimedia buttons to do, Dell has tested them all to survive up to 40,000 pushes.
Twist and Turn
After twisting an Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, Dell can assure you the parts inside are well protected.
A Good Fit
You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 30 times, but you can rest easy knowing that Dell has tested even that.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
