Review Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook

 

MTV-Laptop. The 15.6-incher of the colorful EMA 2009 Limited Edit

Quiet and little waste heat; Low energy demand

No HDMI; Creaking hinges; Bad workmanship of the display frame; Smudge everywhere; Spongy input

Without elegant lid: Acer's Extensa 5230E is a hot tip. Also Lenovo offers a low-priced office laptop, the G550 series. The Samsung E251 at slightly more than 400 euro has a comparably meager equipment, but, a matt look.

Dell Inspiron i1545-4583JBK

 

The Dell Inspiron i1545-4583JBK is a solid entry-level, 15.6-inch laptop. Its build quality, audio output, and battery life impress, but its CPU is a generation behind what you'll find in laptops that cost only $100 or so more.

Cheap price and solid build quality. Comfortable keyboard and touchpad. Surprisingly decent audio output. Respectable battery life.

Previous-generation CPU can't keep up with newer Core i3 chips. No 802.11n WiFi. No HDMI or eSATA ports.

The Inspiron 1545 (i1545-USE010ST) is priced to sell, but are you getting the best price with this configuration?

Big hard drive. Excellent typing and navigating experience. Big widescreen.

Sluggish performance scores. 802.11g only.

Dell Inspiron 1545 (i1545-004ST)

 

The Dell Inspiron 1545 (i1545-004ST) is one of the better big-screen bargains in the business.

Bargain price. Big hard drive. 4GB of memory. Perfectly tuned typing and navigating experience. Big widescreen.

Sluggish performance scores. 802.11g only. Plain-looking.

Dell Inspiron i1545-4742JBK

 

Available at Staples for $649.98 (list), the Dell Inspiron i1545-4742JBK is a comfortable, albeit ordinary looking, 15-inch mainstream notebook with a spacious hard drive and a bright, 15.6-inch HD display. Its Intel Pentium CPU doesn't offer the kind...

Affordable. Nice keyboard and touchpad. Sizable hard drive. Crisp display

Lacks draft n Wi-Fi. So-so performance. Integrated graphics

The Dell Inspiron i1545-4742JBK is a good choice for cash-strapped students or anyone seeking an affordable, well-equipped 15-inch notebook. Just don't expect blazing performance from this Pentium-based system.

Dell's notebook line is extensive and the Inspiron 1545 is designed for to appeal to those that need an everyday applications machine

Dell Inspiron 1545 Review

 

The Dell Inspiron 1545 is one of the bigger entry level notebooks on the market. The Dell Inspiron 1545 is at the dimension of 373×244×25.9-37.5mm, and the weight of the Dell 1545 is just 2.64kg.

Expert review by: Chris Jager (goodgearguide.com.au)

Dell Inspiron 1545 notebook

 

The Dell Inspiron 1545 is an affordable all-purpose notebook with a 15.6in widescreen LCD. While it's unlikely to turn heads with its pedestrian style...

High quality keyboard, 15.6in display, excellent specifications for the asking price

Drab design (unless you pay to spruce it up), heavy and not very portable, integrated graphics

There's nothing spectacular about the Dell Inspiron 1545 notebook -- until you take its price into account. With an RRP of just $999, it's one of the best-value all purpose notebooks we've tested.
