Dell Inspiron 17-5758 Notebook Review

 

No more Aluminum! The predecessor had an aluminum lid, while the new Dell Inspiron 17-5758 is now mainly made of plastic. On the other hand, it features up-to-date Broadwell CPUs and a dedicated graphics card. Is this sufficient to make up for the poor...

simple, elegant design, good WiFi reception, replaceable battery, good maintainability, precise touchpad, matte Full HD display, decent speakers

case twists, few interfaces, no Gigabit LAN, only 12 months warranty, keyboard clatters, dark display, unnatural colors, CPU throttles, gets too hot, loud hard drive

The predecessor was good. The Dell Inspiron 17-5758 is only a small update, and many of our points of critique remained unchanged: There are still only a few interfaces, which are unfavorably placed, but at least they are no longer too close to each...

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 7559

 

It's rare that we see a gaming laptop with good dedicated graphics and a fast quad core CPU for under $1,000. The Dell Inspiron 7000 "Gaming Series" model 7559 is just that machine. It currently sells for $750 to $799 nicely appointed with an Intel 6th...

Strong specs and build for the price. An excellent budget gamer that's easy to upgrade

Display could be brighter

The Dell Inspiron 15 7559 Gaming Series is quite the wise buy for budget constrained folks, and it's a relative bargain for what you get-- a very solid chassis, an ample selection of ports (alas no USB-C or DisplayPort), a decent IPS full HD display,...

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 7559 review: Overpriced, but reliable; a tough sell - Tech2

 

The Dell Inspiron 15 7559 is a more expensive entrant in the gaming laptop space, crossing the Rs 1,00,000 mark. Does it offer enough to justify the price?

More than the weight, the biggest consideration with the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 is the price. At around Rs 1,20,000, this is not a cheap device. Even more worryingly, both of Dell’s major rivals, ASUS and MSI, offer laptops with the exact same...

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...
