Decent Productivity Machine - Weak Intel Graphics

 

After I first set up the laptop, I upgraded the RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB because I had the extra RAM available from a previous upgrade. I expected to see some measurable performance increase, but the benchmarks showed no real improvement, nor did my own...

He tends to be hard on electronics, so I had apprehension after I got my hands on this laptop (see Cons). This is a good productivity machine. The Core i3 processor handles modest workloads very well. It's a dual-core with 4 threads and a peak...

The screen resolution is not as good as I expected. The monitor resolution is not as good as I hoped. The monitor display’s native resolution is 1366 x 768, and those 768 pixels don’t seem that clean. This machine plays 720P video clean and with no...

DELL 15 (N5050)

 

It wont play high end games, but other than that it will do everything, you will need it to. plus it cost 1/3 the price of a gaming laptop. of its better in every way than the xps m1530 it is replacing. Including graphics.

the laptop is plenty fast, and works with ubutnu 12.04. Even with the Linux driver witch is currently only 50% the speed of the windows driver, the computer has no problems with the tasks I need it to do.

Great Buy

 

New Egg is amazing .... I received the laptop at my door with free shipping in 20 hours. This laptop is fantastic. High def Intel makes for sharp clarity. Never feels too warm anywhere underneath like some laptops I worked on ; Lucky I grabbed it as it...

Only bad thing so far was a button in the Intel graphics applet. When I used my Samsung 24" TV/monitor in the HDMI jack, I clicked the 'TV/monitor' settings button and it set my Samsung 24" TV/monitor back to factory default so I had to scan my...

Performance would be good if the quality was there

 

All signs seem to point to a video card or display failure on this instance. We are going to give a second model a try as our last Dell lasted 6+ years. Here's hoping it was an isolated case.

Hardware specs definitely lived up to expectations. Windows 7 ran very well and it was able to handle all the software I got loaded on it in the 3 weeks it was working for me. HDMI port was great, hooked it to my Samsung TV and even allowed most...

The glossy finish on the case was easily finger printed (not good with younger kids). Lightweight case seemed like long term durability could be a concern. Battery life was just okay (about 2 - 2.5 hours). Keyboard took a little getting use to and some...

Excellent product, especially at that price.

Dell Inspiron N5050

 

Great laptop for someone who's looking for something affordable with good quality. Runs pretty smoothly, however I do not recommend this laptop for any sort of gaming, even on the lowest possible graphic setting games run slowly and lag quite a bit....
