Closer Look At The Inspiron 15 7000 (7568)
On the left side of the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (7568) 2-in-1 laptop (Amazon), you will find a Noble lock slot, the power port, a HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports and a headphone port. The USB 3.0 port next to the HDMI port supports PowerShare, which allows you to recharge your mobile devices even when the Inspiron 15 is powered down.
The Dell Inspiron 15 7568 does not have an optical drive (who still uses one these days?), so you will only find a USB 3.0 port and a SD / MMC card reader on the far end, and a Power button and a volume control toggle near the front end.
Just around the corner is a small LED light that serves as a Power and battery status light :
Solid yellow – Computer is running on battery, and the battery has less than 5% charge.
Off – Computer is in sleep state, hibernation or turned off / Computer is running and the battery has more than 5% charge
Note the rubber strip near the LED light. There’s another one on the other side of the keyboard. They protect the brushed aluminium surface of the palm rest and the glass surface of the display from each other.
The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (7568) 2-in-1 laptop (Amazon) has a full-sized, spill-resistant keyboard with backlit keys. It also comes with a large, multi-touch touchpad that supports gestures and scrolling. Those who come from a Mac background will love it.
Like all convertible laptops, the Dell Inspiron 15 7568 uses a special hinge. It is not just the ability to completely fold the keyboard section behind the display. The hinge also has a constant friction that allows it to be easily used to convert the Inspiron 15 7568 into four different modes.[adrotate banner=”5″]
Although the Inspiron 15 7568 has a nice and large capacitive touch screen display, Dell appeared to have skipped the oleophobic coating, or didn’t use a particularly good one. It was quite susceptible to fingerprint stains.
Flipping the Inspiron 15 7568 over, you will find two small speaker slots on each side, just under the palm rest. Each speaker has a 2.5 W peak power output. Near the back is a small black label with the Service Tag and Express Service Code.
Right next to it is a series of vents for the CPU cooler. There is another set of vents hidden under it. They both allow the heat from the Intel Core i7-6500U processor inside to be exhausted out the back of the laptop. This is the latest 6th Generation Intel Core i7 processor (codenamed Skylake), so it is not just very powerful, it also uses and dissipates relatively little heat – just 15 W.
