Conclusion: The Inspiron brand name, which is typically reserved for Dell’s entry-level systems, doesn’t do the Inspiron 15 7000 Series justice. This system is undoubtedly the reason why the XPS 15 is so expensive. In some areas, like display quality and battery life, the Inspiron actually out-performs the XPS 15.
Pros: Sturdy chassis, Large touchpad and keyboard, Solid 1080p touchscreen, Long battery life, Strong performance from CPU and GPU, Good value
Cons: Heavy, Display could be brighter, Fan can be loud at load
Excerpt: We're big fans of Dell Inspiron 15 5000 and it's now better value than ever, having recently received a £50 price drop. This means the top spec is now available for under £500, making it one of the best laptops you can buy today without breaking the bank. Its brushed aluminium chassis is particularly stunning and makes a refreshing change from the cheap plastic we normally see on laptops in this price range.
Summary: The new Dell Inspiron 15 is a 15.6in value for money all-purpose budget laptop. The Dell Inspiron 15-1564 we tested is based on Intel's "Arrandale" Core i3 processor, has a full-sized keyboard, good looks and overall performance.
