Dell Inspiron 15 (I15RV-6190 BLK)

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 (I15RV-6190 BLK) is a relatively thin 15-inch laptop offering Intel Pentium processing power and good battery life for under $400.

Very affordable. Good battery life. Slim profile

No touch screen. Low-res screen. USB 3.0 ports are black

Budget laptops are all about sacrifice, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for a big, clunky system with a bland design and limited features. With the Dell Inspiron 15 (I15RV-6190 BLK) you get relatively good performance in a thin, textured...

Dell Inspiron 15 (1564) Laptop Computer

 

Power to spare for most tasks ; Great big widescreen to work on

Missing video connections ; Offset keyboard with a too-small number pad

There's no denying that the 1564 has a lot of power--but with so few ports on this laptop, how are you going to make use of it?

Dell Inspiron 15 Review

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 has average build quality compared to other value-oriented models we have reviewed. The plastics used held up well in our tests, but did show signs of flexing and creaking in spots. The screen lid and palmrest were the two main...

Good looks ; Easy to upgrade all components ; Good cooling system ; Great touchpad buttons

Screen lid doesn't stay closed with the notebook held vertically ; Battery life could be better

All of the 3DMark06 scores for all of the systems listed above were run at 1280 x 800 (for screens with a 16:10 ratio) or 1280 x 768 resolution (for screens with 16:9)

Dell Inspiron 15

 

Dell's all-purpose notebook offers a bright display, good ergonomics, and helpful software, but multitaskers will want to upgrade the processor.

As you might expect with a budget notebook, the $499 Dell Inspiron 15 is a no-frills machine: It lacks multimedia controls or a webcam, and its graphics performance is poky. But for users on a budget with light computing needs and a desire for a screen...

Dell Inspiron 15

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 doesn't offer any fancy features or tools you wouldn't find on any other basic laptop. The laptop is portable with a lightweight and thin design. Higher-ranked laptops sport more graphics power and a stronger processor, but the...

The TrueLife screen plays well with high-definition movies, making colors look vibrant and clear

The integrated graphics card is weak and only goes as far as watching movies and viewing images. It won't manage graphics-heavy gaming

The Dell Inspiron 15 doesn't provide any special features or powerful components, but this entry-level laptop is a great laptop for basic tasks.

Dell Inspiron 15 review

 

This outstanding general purpose laptop provides plenty of processor power and battery life for a surprisingly low price

Overall, the new Inspiron 15 looks like it's a great value laptop, but the £399 Best Buy-winning Asus X552CL trumps this current configuration on both processing speed and graphics power. The Dell has much better battery life, though, lasting around...

Dell Inspiron 15-1564 review

 

The new Dell Inspiron 15 is a 15.6in value for money all-purpose budget laptop. The Dell Inspiron 15-1564 we tested is based on Intel's "Arrandale" Core i3 processor, has a full-sized keyboard, good looks and overall performance.

The new Dell Inspiron 15 sports significant improvements over the older model, both in terms of look and feel and overall performance. It may not have every feature in the bag, but for a price tag of £398, we think it has a pretty good blend of style...

Dell Inspiron 15

 

Excellent battery life ; Core 2 Duo processor for under $1000

100Mbit Ethernet only ; 802.11g only, no Bluetooth, although you can upgrade both for extra cash ; No numpad

The Dell Inspiron 15 is likely the best bang for buck you'll get for AU$1000, from its battery life to its upgrade options. We do miss the numpad, but the rest is perfect for the budget-conscious user.

Dell Inspiron 15

 

Dell gets it right with this entry level laptop, the Inspiron 15, which strikes a very good balance between price and performance.

Glossy black looks ; Good keyboard ; Good overall performance

Glossy design attracts dust, fingerprints

The Inspiron 15 is a very good balance between price and performance, and also the most inexpensive at Rs. 33,899. What's more, Dell's website lets you pick and choose the Inspiron 15's configuration before placing an order.
