  • Conclusion: Notebooks like this are often dubbed desktop replacements. In this case, unless you're an avid gamer or intensive video or animation editor, the phrase fits. As a consumer-grade computer, the Inspiron is powerful, capable, and good-looking enough to be a first-class choice. To the question whether it's worth over $1,100, we say—yes indeed.
  • Pros: Well-built and attractive, Great-looking high-res display, Nvidia discrete graphics, Decent sound, Ample RAM and storage, Long battery life
  • Cons: A bit heavy, Not a benchmark barn-burner

Review Dell Inspiron 15-7537 Notebook

Notebookcheck
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Long-lasting all-rounder. An economic Core i7 processor and a dedicated Nvidia GPU topped with a lot of storage and wrapped up in an elegant aluminum casing - this is the recipe for a versatile and high-performance multimedia laptop. But is it enough to justify the ambitious price of almost 1200 Euros (~$1619)?
  • Pros: Good build quality, 4 USB 3.0 ports, Backlit keyboard, High-quality Full HD screen, Generous storage capacity, High graphics power, Low temperature development, Very long battery runtime, Unlike some other laptops, even the rather inconspicuous details were considered in Dell's Inspiron 15. The GPU's swift GDDR5 memory and the first-rate Samsung SSD have to be emphasized here.
  • Cons: Glare-type screen, Low Wi-Fi range, Only 12 month warranty, No mSATA/M.2 slot, Steep price, The laptop only exhibits a few and mostly minor flaws apart from the CPU's not quite maxed out Turbo. We would wish for a faster 802.11 ac Wi-Fi adapter and one empty mSATA/M.2 slot.

Review Dell Inspiron 15R-5537 Notebook

Notebookcheck
12 August 2013
  • Summary: 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 card?
  • Pros: Rigid casing, High-quality touchpad, Generous storage capacity, Decent application performance, Impressive battery runtimes, Low emissions, Quiet, energy-efficient, fast: The Inspiron 15R makes a great impression in office and multimedia applications. The Core i7-4500 even deals with more demanding software without problems.
  • Cons: 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 graphics card would also make the laptop interesting for gamers.

Dell Inspiron 15 (M5030)

LAPTOP Magazine
28 June 2011
  • 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

Dell Inspiron 15

LAPTOP Magazine
7 July 2009
  • 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,
  • Cons: Lacks webcam at this price, No HDMI port,
