Dell Inspiron 1501 Review

 

Dell's first AMD machine dives into the budget pool with a starting price of $549.

Strong wireless performance, Solid battery life, Nicely designed touchpad

Lacks multimedia controls, Substandard dual-core multitasking power

Dell E1501 reviewed, first AMD-based laptop

 

Well folks, it's a new month, and we've got the first of new laptop reviews comin' down the pike. Dell's latest low-budget laptop ($500), which debuted about a month ago, has finally been put through its paces for a complete test by Laptop magazine....

Dell Inspiron 1501 Review

 

The Inspiron 1501 matches much of the Dell lineup clad in painted silver with white trim on top and a black underside.  The color scheme is simple and there's nothing to rave or rant about honestly, I'm not a huge fan of the white trim "bumpers"...

Very respectable battery life ; Quiet under normal use ; Cool running ; Good keyboard ; Overall very good build, sturdy in its feel

Not much of a looker in terms of design ; Price compared to higher end e1505 doesn't make sense -- this should be cheaper ; Lots of annoying pre-installed software (AOL, NetZero, MusicMatch etc.) ; No DVI port, no S-Video, no FireWire -- a serious lack...

In the end, the 1501 is sort of like a neutered e1505. It's a shame, if you're an AMD fan it kind of makes it hard to go with the AMD Dell option here. If pricing were significantly lower for the 1501 than the e1505 I could see the selling point, but...

Dell InspironTM 1501 PC Notebook

 

This laptop runs great, especially for the price. However, the battery was sucked down in about an hour on Windows XP. On Kubuntu Linux I can get close to two hours if I set the power mode on powersave. However, I have had a few problems. The machine...

Great battery life, great value

Ran into a few problems that Dell fixed.

Dell Inspiron 1501

 

This Inspiron is pretty bare-bones, but for value and performance, it's a notebook worth considering.

Well-rounded, solid performance; good specs overall; 2GB of memory for peak Vista operation; great display quality

Short on extra features; minimal port, input/output selection; small hard drive seems smaller with pre-installed software

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop review

 

For as long as we can remember Dell had a stance that it would never release a computer that didn't have an Intel chip inside. But just as you can now run Windows on a Mac, you'll find that Dell is offering its first AMD chips in the form of the...

Affordable, good battery life

Not that powerful

Dell finally releases an AMD notebook for the discerning bargain hunter but it’s not quite the catch we were hoping it would be
