Dell Inspiron 1564


The Dell Inspiron 1564 has enough horsepower to accommodate multiple users and all the resource-sucking tasks they bring with them.

Powered by a Core i5 processor. Midrange ATI graphics card for games. Speedy laptop. Excellent typing and navigating experience. Adjacent numeric keypad.

Lackluster battery life. No ExpressCard slot.

Dell Inspiron 15 (1564)


I like a lot of Dell's newer laptops, and I had hoped to like the company's newly Core i5-enhanced Inspiron 15 (1564 variant). This model has a lush widescreen and isn't too big, and the glossy shell looks nearly as good as the Apple aesthetic it apes....

Great big widescreen to work on ; Power to spare for most tasks

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 i1564-6980CRD review: Dell Inspiron i1564-6980CRD


Simple, straightforward design.

Minimal port assortment; 802.11g wireless; no Bluetooth; glossy plastic chassis.

The Dell Inspiron i1564-6980CRD is a good, but basic, laptop.

Dell Inspiron 15 (1564 with Core i5 540M Processor) Notebook Review


The new Dell Inspiron 15 was one of the best notebooks I've used, it's certainly not something you'd recommend for size and weight but take a look, this could be the one for you!

It's a good notebook. Powerful processor, great screen, great audio, comes with optical drive and whatever else needed for productivity.

Dell Inspiron 1564 review


Cutting-edge power and great usability from this consumer level laptop

Powerful Core i3 CPU ; Good screen ; Decent usability ; Decent 3D performance

Limited network connectivity

Apart from the weak networking options, the Inspiron 1564 is a great all-round machine that is packed with cutting-edge components

Dell Inspiron 1564 review


An attractive laptop with a fast Core i3 processor, the 1564 has a relatively small hard disk and could do with a better screen.

Dell Inspiron 15-1564 review


The Dell Inspiron 15 has undergone some significant facelifts, as a result it looks much better than the older Inspiron 15. Gone is the drab, lacklustre design of the past - the new Inspiron 15 sports a more polished, refined look. You have five glossy...

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...

Dell Inspiron 15-1564


Combining good looks, sleek performance and a price that screams “good value”, the Dell Inspiron 15-1564 is an excellent shout for those of you on the hunt for an entry-level notebook with plenty of decent features to get stuck into.

There aren’t many notebooks for the entry-level market that offer such a high level of performance as the Dell Inspiron 1564. The reputation is slightly tarnished by a very basic level of connectivity, but if you plan to use the 1564 mainly at home,...
