Dell Inspiron 15" 5000 Series Intel Non-Touch Laptop
In terms of raw performance, this budget laptop is pretty hard to beat. This pick has an 6th Generation Intel i5 quad-core processor which might not be the best CPU on the market, but certainly gives you great performance at this price point. You get 8GB of memory and it has a 1TB hard drive which gives you a ton of storage for your files and projects. You get both Wireless-AC and Bluetooth 4.0 support, which gives you just about all the wireless connectivity you could want. This laptop also includes an integrated 720p HD webcam, tray-load DVD burner, USB 3.0 port, and HDMI output connection. The 15-inch display looks great, and while not anything particularly exceptional it’s certainly better than a smaller 13-inch offering.
