I got dell 11th gen thinking it would be good all rounder performance but is crap. I don't know why but windows 10 is missing quite a few setting even tried to customer install windows 10, but still missing should have stuck with HP Pavilion or the dell 3501 I got is crap. Don't buy it would rate it 2/10

This model has graphic cards, this will certainly mislead some. Also, if you want quick reference sheets from the main models from the official source, search "dell Setup and Specifications". (don't include screen size as 15 or processor as i5, Del has all of them in one place :) ) Example search: https://www.google.com/search?q=dell+5502+Setup+and+Specifications first result: https://www.dell.com/support/manuals/en-uk/inspiron-15-5502-laptop/inspiron-5502-setup-and-specification/dimensions-and-weight?guid=guid-a2ec334b-aeb0-402e-a579-9d896d8c2df0&lang=en-us - here look for the right-bar, click "specifications".

8 of 8 Dell Inspiron 3501 recently purchase in Feb. 2021 gives false full drive (low disk space) with 128 GB Solid State Drive. I called Dell Support and claims that it's not a hardware failure and ridiculous response of "schedule a one-on-one support session with a Dell certified expert for $99 with a no-fix-no-fee guarantee per laptop".
