Review Dell Inspiron 15R-5537 Notebook


Refreshed. A touchscreen alongside Intel's latest Haswell CPUs should boost the appeal of Dell's refreshed Inspiron 15R. Outstanding battery runtimes and low emissions speak for the 15-incher. But can that compensate for the omitted dedicated graphics...

Slow Fast-Ethernet port, Disappointing WXGA screen, No dedicated GPU, Relatively high price, Compared with the precursor, the new HD Graphics 4400 has taken a leap forward but is still far behind most dedicated solutions. An additional, switchable...

Review Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition Notebook


Oh so special. Dell introduces the new and completely redesigned Inspiron notebooks - including two SE (Special Edition) models - the Inspiron 15R SE and 17R SE. Aluminum accent panels for the chassis, a more powerful graphics card and a better display...

interchangeable display lids ; sturdy surfaces ; 4x USB 3.0 and Blu-ray optical drive ; 1 year in-home service ; solid input devices ; brigth, non-glare HD-Display ; decent speakers

so-so built quality ; heats up under load ; short battery life

Review Dell Inspiron 15R Notebook


Dell Inspiron 15R(eloaded)! After we reviewed 17-inch representat

Workmanship; Keyboard and touchpad; Four colours to choose from; Price/performance ratio

Colours only available with surcharge; System noise under load

The Acer Aspire 5740G would be an alternative. Same CPU, GPU, RAM and a somewhat cheaper price range. Likewise a competitor for our Dell Inspiron 15R might be the Packard Bell EasyNote TM87 notebook.

Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition Review


The Inspiron 15R Special Edition is a "diamond in the rough" among affordable multimedia laptops.

Beautiful 1920 x 1080 Full HD Screen ; Base configuration specs are very generous for the price ; Sturdy build quality and aluminum finish helps looks ; AMD 7730M graphics provides some gaming ability, stays cool

Thick and bulky with a weight of 6.4lbs ; Battery life is limited to around 3 hours ; Slow 5400RPM hard drive is standard

While financial reports suggest Dell seems to be floundering a bit in the PC market space as a whole (losing market share to Lenovo, HP and others) the Inspiron 15R Special Edition is one of the bright spots in the Texas company’s lineup. The starting...

Dell Inspiron 15R-5520

Dell Inspiron 15R review: Dell Inspiron 15R


Dell's Inspiron laptops have always been the brand's middle-of-the-road workhorse: equally likely to turn up in a dorm room or coffee shop as at your mom's kitchen table. Dell periodically gives the series a physical makeover, but small differences in...

Decent performance and design for a reasonable price; excellent battery life.

Not as customizable as previous Dells; too many built-in advertising pitches.

Dell's updated Inspiron line has a slightly revamped design, but more importantly still offers workhorse performance for a minimal investment.
