Dell Inspiron 15z (I15Z-4801SLV)

PC Magazine
30 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Tipping the scales at the thick and heavy end of the ultrabook specifications, the Dell Inspiron 15z (I15Z-4801SLV) gives you extra features to justify its bulk. It's a good pick for the traditional laptop user who wants a new, fast laptop.
  • Pros: Intel Core i7 power. Touch screen. Backlit keyboard. Four USB 3.0 ports. HDMI out.
  • Cons: A bit heavy. A few pieces of bloatware.

Dell Inspiron 15z Ultrabook Review

Tech2
3 April 2013
  • Summary: The flagship version of the Dell Inspiron 15z will set you back Rs 74,990, plus taxes. This makes it quite expensive for an Inspiron, which were originally supposed to be budget-oriented notebooks. The high-end model then really doesn’t make much practical sense since you’ll seldom use the touchscreen. We weren’t very impressed with the build quality either.

Dell Inspiron 15z Review

thinkdigit.com
10 March 2013
  • Summary: The refreshed Inspiron ultrabook range feels a lot better to use. The "budget" build quality of the previous version has given way to a much more premium feel, while keeping the same design. Performance is quite good. But why you would consider the Inspiron 15z as an ultrabook, all models included, will be because you need the bigger display. With this particular model that we have tested, the Core i7 and 8GB RAM offer excellent performance as well.
  • Pros: Better build quality than predecessor, Very good performance, Crisp test rendering on the display, Fairly solid graphics capabilities, Well-spaced out keyboard
  • Cons: The Core i7 version is pricey, Quite heavy for an ultrabook, Battery life suffers as a result of too much power

Dell Inspiron 15z Review

Digitaltrends
4 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Going big hasn’t caused the 15z to compromise its Ultrabook roots. This is a snappy, portable system. While it isn’t a performance powerhouse, it does meet the demands of the average consumer. Like Lenovo’s U-Series Ultrabooks, the 15z excels not because it is extraordinary in any one category but because it is consistently competent. The display is the only weakness, but competitors with better displays sell for more.
  • Pros: Good material quality, Excellent connectivity, Spacious keyboard and touchpad, Solid performance
  • Cons: Glossy display with dim backlight, Optional touchscreen is a poor value

Dell Inspiron 15z

LAPTOP Magazine
21 December 2012
  • Summary: With the Inspiron 15z, Dell delivers a lightweight (for its size) notebook with a handsome aluminum chassis and a 15.6-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen display. Aditionally, its Core i5 CPU and 32GB cache deliver above-average performance, which should appeal to students and families alike. For $899, though, we would prefer a higher-resolution display and longer battery life.
  • Pros: Attractive lightweight design, Good performance and graphics, Swift boot times, Runs cool
  • Cons: Subpar battery life, Loud tinny audio lacks bass

  • Conclusion: The Dell Inspiron 15z-5523 gives plenty of bang for the buck, boasting solid performance and a feature set that helps deliver a smooth and intuitive Windows 8 experience.

Dell Studio 15z

LAPTOP Magazine
8 March 2010
  • Summary: For just under $1,000, the Dell Studio 15z offers a lot of power in a thin (if polarizing) design, plus Intel’s innovative Wireless Display technology. However, this notebook runs hot on the bottom, and some may prefer to get the version of this system with discrete graphics for not much more money. Among WiDi notebooks we prefer the 14-inch Toshiba E205 ($899), which offers a more modern and portable design.
  • Pros: Thin and light for 15-inch notebook, Intel Wireless Display for streaming video, Strong battery life, Speedy hard drive, Comfortable keyboard,
  • Cons: Runs warm, Mediocre graphics performance, No VGA port, Low EPEAT rating,
