Dell Inspiron 1150 Home review

 

Intro Together, the Dell Inspiron 1150 and the Inspiron 1000 make up Dell's budget (a.k.a. mainstream) laptop line. Priced less than $1,000, the Inspiron 1150 is just barely enough laptop for a student or users in a small business or a home. While the...

Very inexpensive; good performance; excellent battery life; includes wireless connectivity.

Big and heavy; meager memory; lacks FireWire and video-out ports.

A decent entry-level system, Dell's Inspiron 1150 offers good battery life and Wi-Fi, but it lacks features that advanced users will not want to live without.

The Dell Inspiron 1150 has decent performance and respectable components, but it's the outstanding battery life that makes this notebook worth a second glance.

Dell Inspiron 1150

 

Dell's budget notebook has exemplary battery life, and is recommended as long as you can look past its rather plain styling and heavy weight.

Great battery life

Bulky design

With prices starting at AU$1598 (that's for the Celeron version, mind you; our test system currently costs AU$1,798.50), the 1150 is one of the best budget notebooks on the market today. We anxiously await other vendor's responses to its low-priced...

Cheap. Huge screen for the price (with a caveat). Sufficiently equipped for basic needs, including a decent array of ports. Non-frills. Quiet and reasonably cool operation. Pretty attractive considering the price. Came with a Windows 7 DVD, rather than...

3GB? Really? Construction is a little flimsy. Screen is too big for the resolution...the pixels are enormous. No 5ghz WiFi support
