Dell Inspiron 13 5368 Performance

At first, I did not expect excessive expectations in terms of performance when trying this laptop. Because the machine only uses Intel Core i3 and not the latest generation. Inside the Dell Inspiron 13 5368, there is an Intel Core i3-6100U processor.

But my guess is wrong. Apparently this laptop works quickly, stable and responsive. The process of booting or start-up was fast. Used for daily work in a multi-tasking, not even when I’m having problems. Even my laptop that uses the Intel Core i5 seventh generation is still lost. Dell has configured the hardware very well.

Technically, this processor has two Core which each has a speed of 2.3 GHz. Thanks to Intel Hyper-Threading technology the two Core’s can work twice as much as the standard Dual-Core Processor. Intel Hyper-Threading also allows the PC to run more applications at the same time with less power.

Processor performance is also supported by a powerful 4 GB RAM memory, making daily work run smoothly and more effectively without a hitch. Notebook with this compact design can be your choice to accompany the daily activities.

Then about the battery life, this laptop is not too special. You can not expect this device to work all day. With full condition and used to move normally, the average Dell Inspiron 13 5368 can last for half a day or 6 hours. So you should always carry the charger cable when traveling.
