Review Update Dell Inspiron 15R-5537 Notebook

Notebookcheck
2 May 2014
  • Summary: Quantity or quality? Compared to the ever-slimmer competition the massive Dell Inspiron 15R appears as a cumbersome underdog, however with good equipment at a small price. Special highlight: The fast Radeon HD 8850M with GDDR5 memory.
  • Pros: sturdy case, precise touchpad with crisp buttons, matte FullHD display, generous memory capacity, good gaming performance, long battery runtimes, Core i7 processor, terabyte hard drive and Full HD display - such extensive equipment for as little as 750 Euros is quite impressive.
  • Cons: slow Fast-Ethernet port, graphics driver issues, unpleasant fan noise, relatively massive case, The 15-inch case should actually be able to dissipate the little waste heat of the installed hardware pretty quietly. A humming fan and a distracting buzzing sound thwart this goal.

Dell Inspiron 15R (5537)

Techworld
27 February 2014
  • Summary: It's a shame that the Inspiron 15R is so heavy, as it may limit the laptop to only occasional adventures in the outside world. However, it's well built and provides good performance and connectivity at a very competitive price. Battery life is also excellent for a laptop in this price range, making the Inspiron 15R a good choice for anyone that wants an affordable multi-purpose laptop for use at home or in the office.

Dell Inspiron 15R (2nd generation)

CNET
19 June 2012
  • Summary: Dell's Inspiron 15R is an attractively priced budget consumer laptop with a welcome set of up-to-date features and design options, but beware of the cost of customizations.
  • Pros: The 2011 Dell Inspiron 15R starts at just $499, and includes modern features such as second-gen Intel Core i-series processors, USB 3.0 ports, and an HD Webcam, along with optional swappable lids.
  • Cons: The Inspiron 15R's bulky body is heavy, and its battery life is a big letdown. Adding optional extras makes it nearly as expensive as a laptop from Dell's premium XPS line.

Dell Inspiron 15R: A Great All-rounder

Tech2
17 June 2012
  • Summary: Priced at Rs. 52,800 (with a 1 year Complete Cover warranty) , it seems to be a tad bit overpriced. While a discrete GPU is available, it does not come as a standard which is a downer. The Inspiron 15R is a great laptop for those who like a clean, understated look while having enough power under the hood to do whatever they choose. In short, the Dell Inspiron 15R is a great all-round notebook and should be on your list, if you are looking for a new workhorse.

Review Dell Inspiron 15R Notebook

Notebookcheck
9 September 2010
  • Summary: Dell Inspiron 15R(eloaded)! After we reviewed 17-inch representative of the Inspiron series from the well-known manufacturer, Dell, it's now the Dell Inspiron 15R's turn to take on our tests and our critical glances.
  • Pros: Workmanship, Keyboard and touchpad, Four colours to choose from, Price/performance ratio, We also liked the visual appearance and the design of the Inspiron 15R. Above all the combination of the optionally available coloured colours for the display rear. With that, we're on to the next point, what we missed...
  • Cons: Colours only available with surcharge, System noise under load, Equality in terms of price for the optionally available coloured covers. This way, Dell would surely be able to score points with the customers.

  • Conclusion: The Dell Inspiron 15R delivers a power-packed punch for you to breeze through your workday like a dream and enjoy loads of sheer quality time to chase passions close to your heart. All said and done, the Dell Inspiron 15R is a pretty sophisticated laptop proffering astounding multimedia and connectivity together with an excellent overall performance.
  • Cons: At the given outrageous price point, the Dell Inspiron 15R remains a tad overpriced, expressly so when some of the superlative HP and Sony variants promising more or less the same features can be bought at a much lesser price. Also, better camera capabilities would have done wonders to the overall utility of a laptop of this stature.
