Summary: The new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series will set you back a cool Rs 68,990, which is quite expensive for what’s on offer. We say this, because the HP Envy Touchsmart 15 has the exact same configuration but with more RAM (8GB) and storage (1TB) for Rs 64,000. It’s also quite a bit lighter as well at 2.1kg. The Dell 7000 does make a good case for itself with an excellent build and industrial design, good gaming performance, decent audio and long battery life.
Summary: It's hard to say great things about a laptop that is mediocre. It's not the thinnest, prettiest, or most powerful 15.6-inch notebook around, but it still has a place in the market. The Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 performs well for its price, features an impressive four USB 3.0 ports, and has a large, if not very high-resolution, screen. It's built with solid components, and has excellent speakers for its size.
Conclusion: 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, you would be hard pressed to find a better deal out there at the moment. Recommended.

Summary: Though the Inspiron 15 M5030 didn't shine in our benchmarks, we still found it adequate for everyday computing chores such as surfing the web, updating Facebook, and playing casual games. It's not often that a 15-inch notebook is priced as low as $350 and is still viable, with a comfortable (albeit loud) keyboard.
Pros: Very inexpensive, Comfy keyboard, Much faster than similarly priced netbooks, Runs cool
Cons: Lackluster benchmark scores, Bland design, No HDMI, Relatively short battery life

Summary: 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 Â£398, we think it has a pretty good blend of style and performance at an attractive price point. Recommended for anyone who's shopping for an all-purpose home laptop on a tight budget.
Summary: As you might expect with a budget notebook, the $499 Dell Inspiron 15 is a no-frills machine: It lacks multimedia controls or a webcam, and its graphics performance is poky. But for users on a budget with light computing needs and a desire for a screen large enough to watch movies, this machine delivers.
Pros: Bright 169 display, Comfortable keyboard touchpad and touch buttons, Loud speakers, Convenient Dell Dock and backup software,
