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 adds touch to the slim Inspiron 15z

CNET
1 February 2013
  • Summary: Dell's Inspiron line continues to look sharper than its budget reputation would suggest. The new touch-enabled version of the 15z works as a reasonably priced Windows 8 laptop with a big screen and an optical drive.
  • Pros: The Dell Inspiron 15z has a great, slim design for a budget-minded 15-inch touch laptop, and even includes an optical drive.
  • Cons: It's at the top end of the budget category, and for the same money, there are more-upscale systems available. Low screen resolution looks cartoonish.

Review Dell Inspiron 15z (5523) Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
24 January 2013
  • Summary: Inspiring. Ultrabooks have found their way into Dell's Inspiron family. The all-rounders of the past now benefit from lower weight and longer battery life, in addition to the good performance. We examine whether the ultrabook measures up to the broad multimedia class.
  • Pros: good housing, individually configurable, dedicated graphics card, always remains cool, mostly silent, The good case and the price-performance ratio.
  • Cons: glossy display, low brightness, no CPU Turbo under load, cumbersome maintenance, A better display, despite the low price.

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 Review

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

Review Dell Inspiron 15z Notebook

Notebookcheck
11 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The fundamental idea of lending a large-format office/multimedia a reasonable battery life is something that we can take some pleasure in. Too often greater performance is endowed upon the notebook despite it being unnecessary or not being fully utilized. Conventional office tasks are easily performed with an energy-saving CPU: a 2 to 3 GHz machine with up to 4 cores is simply overkill here.
  • Pros: Compact design, Low weight, HDMI port, Numerous possibilities for configuration, User-friendly keyboard, Low heat generation, Excellent battery life, The return to the essence behind the notebook: independence through battery life.
  • Cons: Unfavorable positioning of interfaces, Glare-display dependent on viewing angle, Cooling fan consistently running, UMTS, at least as an option. A docked USB-modem doesn't work well with the overall positioning of the various interfaces.
