This is the new Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 convertible touchscreen laptop that supports an active stylus pen and is powered by Intel’s latest 11th-generation chips.

Not to forget, this device can double up to cater to your entertainment needs and literally bend as per your need.

Display of Dell Inspiron 5406
You are getting a 14” Full HD touch screen display that supports an active stylus pen. It’s an LED-backlit IPS panel pumping out a maximum brightness of 250 nits. By default, this display has a warmer tone which is great for watching movies, streaming videos, and looking at pictures. But I prefer a cooler color temperature while reading text and working on documents. Fortunately, you can easily change the color temperature of this display by using Dell’s Cinema Color utility.
Keyboard & Trackpad of Dell Inspiron 5406
Dell Inspiron 5406 has an island-style backlit enabled keyboard. The keys are platinum grey in color with white lettering. The cool white backlighting is user adjustable and it can also be completely turned off if needed. The typing experience on this laptop is fantastic. It measures 4.5 by 2.5 inches which is a little wider than trackpads found on most other laptops. Even though its surface is made from plastic, Dell has added a glass-like coating which makes using this trackpad a delight to use.
CPU & GPU
Dell Inspiron 5406 is powered by an 11th-generation Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor. Now the Core i7-1165G7 processor in my review unit is a beast and it delivers absolutely blazing performance. Here is the Cinebench single-core benchmark and you can see that this chip towers above its competition. Dell has also done an excellent job with CPU cooling. Moving on to the graphics, the integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics is pretty food for casual gaming and watching 4k streaming videos. So in summary, this laptop can easily handle day-to-day tasks like internet surfing, running office productivity apps, complex tasks like software development, and video editing in DaVinci Resolve, and Photoshop with ease.
Battery & Thermal Cooling
I wish Dell had included a larger capacity battery. The included 45-Watt A/C adapter uses an old-school barrel connector to charge this laptop. But fortunately, Dell provides a USB Type-C port which can also be used to charge this laptop. Regarding thermal heat dissipation, Dell Inspiron 5406 uses 1 heat pipe with a small heat spreader, and an average size fan to keep the system cool. The thermal performance of this laptop is really good.
