1.Design and Build
This time Dell went backwards in design and creativity. Inspiron 5567 isn’t that sexy looking and also it has curved edges, which we see on Pavilion series from HP. Overall from design perspective, the Dell Inspiron 15 5559 did it better than the 5567.Talking about build quality, this laptop out performs all its predecessors. It has a solid build quality in both the front panel and the keyboard panel. It is made up of good quality plastic and has a glow finish in the front panel with the Dell logo at the center. You have all the ports around the left and right sides of the laptop and its clean at the front except for the charging indicator at the middle.
The internals of the laptop are very demanding according to current standards and its price bracket.

The Dell inspiron 15 5567 come with pre installed windows 10 in it. It also has other essential Microsoft software like Office . It also has the Radeon configuration software where you can configure the driver for each title you throw at it.
With the 8GB DDR4 memory and the 8gig of GDDR5 graphics from AMD ( Radeon R7 M445), game play is silky smooth while handling heavy titles in very high settings. In the real world scenario, i got around 45 FPS while playing GTA V in FHD resolution in very high settings. Which is excellent considering its price segment. Also in Arkham Knight too i got descent game play.
5. Should you buy one?
This laptop is priced around 70k in India which is a fare price given the fact that it has almost cutting edge specs. Well, if you are a casual gamer, a entertainment seeker, an office worker or a student this laptop is for you. But if you don’t game at all and are a light user who depends on battery life, then this isn’t the right machine for you.
