The Dell Inspiron 16 5625, being less expensive, is a sensible choice for budget-conscious users needing solid performance for general computing tasks; it offers a larger screen with a sharper 16:10 aspect ratio. However, if you prefer slightly better graphics and processing power, more compact dimensions for portability, and a touchscreen with a stylus option for greater versatility, the HP Envy x360 15" may justify its higher price. Keep in mind, the Dell's fanless design can be a plus for quiet operation, while the HP’s smaller, lighter form factor might appeal to those who travel. Both devices have similar battery life, memory, and storage, narrowing the decision down to your specific needs regarding price, performance, quiet operation, and portability. Give Feedback

Ultrabook Review

Derek Sullivan | January 2023
"I think there is fair value in the Inspiron 16 this year. Very little has changed with the laptop and my opinion hasn’t really changed either. In other words, I like it. Overall, I think the pros far outweigh the cons of this laptop and the price is certainly justifiable. I found this to be a great typer and I could potentially work all day on this machine, provided I don’t need a graphics card."

CNET

Matt Elliott | January 2023
"Despite its good looks, stellar webcam and comfortable keyboard, the Envy x360 15 is hard to recommend because of its dim, 16:9 display. If the display isn't an issue for you, just be sure to wait for a good sale price. Otherwise, a more modern two-in-one with a 16:10 display such as the Dell Inspiron 16 2-in-1 or Lenovo Yoga 7i 16 provides a larger workspace without adding much to the size and weight of the system."
