#5 Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Series Model 7590
I highly recommend the Dell Inspiron 15 for business travel. I’m currently using the Model 7590, and it offers both power and functionality in a slim, ergonomic design that’s been perfect for me in my business travels.
Aside from writing and editing, I use it for creating artwork in tablet mode with the pressure-sensitive pen, editing videos, or taking a break to the game. So far, I’ve encountered no issues with this laptop outside of it getting a bit hot but manageable. As for battery life, I’ve been getting a solid 5-7 hours, depending on what I’m working on.
The main selling point for me, however, is the price. Comparing it to the popular Microsoft Surface and Macbook Pro was no contest for me. I’m getting comparable power and functionality at half the price. And if you’re looking for a more compact option, there’s a 13-inch model for you.
All in all, I’m very happy with this laptop, and I see myself sticking with the Inspiron for years to come.
