Dell's Inspiron 17R laptop: Small price, big screen

 

The Inspiron 17R gives you maximum screen size at a minimum price, but more than a few corners get cut along the way.

The ; is a big, desk-filling laptop for not much money, built into a similar chassis to Dell's recently reviewed, and more expensive, 17R SE model.

The Inspiron 17R has low screen resolution for a 17-inch laptop, no discrete graphics, and no clickpad.

If you need maximum screen size at a minimum price, the basic 17-inch Dell Inspiron 17R is powerful enough for everyday tasks, but the lower screen resolution is a constant reminder of its budget origins.

Dell Inspiron 17R

 

Dell's Inspiron 17R desktop replacement laptop is a study in clean, simple design. It's also highly configurable and supports many of the latest technologies such as USB 3.0 and Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi). And as you might guess from the 17R...

State-of-the-art components and ports ; Nice minimalist design

Slightly soft feel to the keyboard

Subtle, elegant looks and adequate performance highlight this desktop replacement.

Dell Inspiron 17R-2248MRB

 

The Dell Inspiron 17R-2248MRB desktop replacement has good speed and a great keyboard, but it won't tempt you with fancy features.

Fast Core i5 processor. Great raw horsepower. Nice 17-inch widescreen. Excellent typing experience. Flawless constructed mouse buttons.

Doesn't have Blu-ray or dedicated graphics. A bit pricey compared with its peers.

Dell Inspiron 17R-2211OBK

 

What the Dell Inspiron 17R-2211OBK laptop lacks in features it makes up for in performance.

Great performance for its class. HDMI-out and eSATA ports. Barely any pre-installed bloatware.

Lid collects fingerprint smudges. No ExpressCard slot or FireWire port.
