Indeed, the power it delivers is interesting, even if it is not the latest generation of component.

Is Inspiron 13 7000 (7391) okay to watch videos ?
Dell presents this laptop as a standard product dedicated to a low-resource usage. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the Inspiron 13 7000 (7391); more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to « classic » uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
Equipped with a small screen size, 13 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. Nevertheless, the colours remain beautiful, with detailed contrasts in the images. The only criticism that could be drawn is its size, which makes it a small device compared to other competing models at the same price; over a whole day, it can tire the eyes. The big advantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop that weighs only a 1.4 kilogram.
Offered with a glossy slab finish, this Inspiron 13 7000 (7391) product is particularly suitable for multimedia-oriented use. Inspiron 13 7000 (7391) will be ideal for movies, photos and games in a dark or half light environment because you will have the means to control light intensity. On the other hand, you may feel visually tired after 2 or 3 hours of viewing.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Inspiron 13 7000 (7391). To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
The Inspiron 13 7000 (7391) has a processor Core i5-10210U, a little more powerful than average, compared to those dedicated to office automation.

Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel UHD Graphics 620, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Dell didn’t prioritize connectivity on this laptop. Indeed, it Inspiron 13 7000 (7391) has only 2 ports. Not enough to connect everything; you’ll have to choose.

Will it be designed for your home-to-work transfers? Should you only consider it for weekend trips with your family?

However, we were able to discover through his overall score, that it is among the best for the travel aspect.
With a weight of 1.4 Kg, it is easily transportable. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. With a 13 inches screen, it is not easy to surf the internet or to look at pictures in a group.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. But, unless you work in the dark, you won’t see the point.
The glossy slab offers better viewing comfort than the previous model. The rendering on screen is good. On the other hand, this last characteristic will be less interesting for outdoor use because of the sun reflections that will occur.
Unfortunately it is not equipped with anti-reflective tiles. You will have to limit uses when the sun is too bright.
A processor Core i5-10210Uthat allows this computer to be equivalent to other laptops in terms of power and power consumption.
However, please note that the autonomy indicated by Dell must be reduced. Rather count on 70% of this value in standard use; the more you use the processor, the lower the figure will be.
Regarding the autonomy of this laptop, you will have 7 hours before having to reconnect; that is to say one of the best csore on the market.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 500 Gb. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.Thanks to this, Dell was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Travel will be a mere formality when you decide to take it along. Its 13 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.

Inspiron 13 7000 (7391) the right choice for audio or video editing ?
The use of a laptop for audio or video editing requires a high-performance product. With this Inspiron 13 7000 (7391), you can be sure you have the right machine. Since the last generation designed by Dell, there have been many improvements on the components. The parallel processing of tasks with Windows 10 are perfectly suited for audio or video editing.

As standard, you will have the applications to make your video editing or your photo or music modifications. And in case you want to go further, you will be able to do so provided you add a bit of memory.
The designers of Dell have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. Here with 500 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
The interest of the laptop is to be able to be used in unplugged mode. Being only on batteries, you have 7 hours of autonomy at your disposal. This model is one of the most powerful of the moment.
For the connector part, the Inspiron 13 7000 (7391)has the USB3 format. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. This standard allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit per second, about ten times faster than USB 2.0.
It Inspiron 13 7000 (7391) is consequently well designed for this type of use. Audio and video editing will be easier than ever. And at a price that is well ranked.
The Inspiron 13 7000 (7391)- the right model to play with?
Some laptops with sufficient performance, the right processors and the latest graphics cards can afford to gamble. With this Inspiron 13 7000 (7391), it will certainly be possible to play simple games, but as soon as the need for calculations requires more power, the image rendering will degrade. Clearly, Dell has done nothing here to meet that purpose.
As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. With a resolution in 1920×1080 this laptop fis one of the best of its class.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Since Dell has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
A space of 500 Gb to save your data; this is in the average of what other brands offer. Useful for local games; as there are still many of them, even though online games are progressing.
For Wi-Fi technology, Dell decided to make the use of the 5GHz wireless band possible. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
Because you will have to carry it sometimes, you will appreciate its weight, 1.4 Kg, among the lightest of the moment.
An excellent autonomy of 7 hours, will allow you to play almost anywhere.
In short, an average rendering that makes this Inspiron 13 7000 (7391) a poor choice for video games, whether local or online. And save this one for more classic uses, like surfing the net.

For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
No anti-reflective treatment on this Inspiron 13 7000 (7391). However, if you work all day on text or spreadsheets, a matte screen would be preferable. As far as the colour palette is concerned, it is well balanced even if they are less faithful than the colours your TV set gives you.
