Dell Inspiron E1405

 

The design is no longer cutting-edge, but this reasonably priced portable offers fast performance and long battery life, along with plenty of bells and whistles.

Excellent battery endurance • Rugged design • Small footprint

Uneven screen brightness • Tiny keyboard • Tablet functionality costs more

Dell Inspiron e1405 and Inspiron 640m Review (pics, specs)

 

The Dell Inspiron e1405, a recently released portable notebook that includes the relatively new Intel Core Duo CPU, seems designed for those who value a combination of significant processing power and portability but don't want to spend a lot of money...

Excellent performance Nicely portable Decent build quality High but comfortable default resolution Bright, sharp display for video and text Good price Cool and quiet

No dedicated graphics option Latches have a little too much play when the screen is closed Minor light leakage at the bottom of the LCD Not as thin as some of its more expensive competitors Some glare and reflection when ambient lighting is strong

The main charm of the Inspiron e1405 is that it manages to provide good portability, pleasurable viewing and high performance at a low cost. With this particular model, there were very few flaws, and none of these was sufficient to warn against this...

If it weren't for the 85Whr (9-cell) battery sticking out from the back, the E1405 would actually be over a pound lighter than the E1505, instead of just 0.8 pounds lighter. Despite the heavier battery, the 5.8 pound system is still easy to tote...

Over 8 hours of battery life. Literally cool to operate. Very luggable. Great resolution on a 14-inch screen

Performance gain is minimal over the Intel Core Duos (although the system will also be available with the speedier Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 and T7400 processors)

The 8 hours of battery life and luggable chassis are the big draws on the Dell Inspiron E1405.

Dell Inspiron e1405 laptop

 

Looking to get a new Core Duo laptop without breaking the bank? Ars takes a look at a low-cost model from Dell.

A solid Core Duo, 1GB system for US$800, Firewire, S-video, and Expresscard, Widescreen, Battery life that does not make me want to cry, Doesn't look like a Dell

Dell's inexplicable decision to partition the hard drive at 60GB, Chirping power brick, Integrated video, The Great Battery Bulge, Doesn't look like an Apple

Graduating high school, I wanted a laptop that would be efficient and useful for my personal use. I checked various online outlets, and came across many HP laptops, only to realize that they were all to expensive. I narrowed my search to a computer...
