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...

Review Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition Notebook

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

 

If you're looking for a laptop with better performance than an entry-level machine but you still have to stick to a budget then this Dell might be just what you need.

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

 

The revamped Dell Inspiron 15R-5520 desktop-replacement laptop brings third-generation Intel processing power to a 15-inch notebook for under $600.

Affordable. Third-gen Intel Core i5 technology. Good performance.

Reflective display has narrow viewing angles. A tad bulky. Medicocre battery life.

Dell Inspiron 15R (I15RN-5882DBK)

 

The Dell Inspiron I15RN-5882DBK doesn?t win many first-place medals for features and performance, but it?s above average in both areas.

Loaded with good hardware. Fine performance. Includes two USB 3.0 ports, WiMAX support.

Other similarly priced laptops are more powerful. Some bloatware preinstalled.
