Dell Inspiron M501R AMD triple-core laptop review: An inexpensive 15in laptop that can be used for almost any task

Good Gear Guide.au
18 December 2010
  • Summary: The Dell Inspiron M5010 is based on AMD's triple-core Phenom II N850 CPU and it's one of the great all-round 15.6in laptops on the Australian market. You can use it for office work, multimedia tasks and even gaming (although not for graphics-intensive first-person shooters).
  • Pros: Triple-core AMD CPU is great for multitasking, good graphics performance, can be used for gaming, comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • Cons: Screen is very reflective, finish is too glossy and smooth, underwhelming battery life, only 100Mbps Ethernet

An AMD quad-core based Dell Inspiron with good speed and lots of gloss

Good Gear Guide.au
5 December 2010
  • Summary: Dell's Inspiron M501R is a nice looking 15.6in notebook with a quad-core AMD Phenom II CPU and 6GB of RAM. It's a good performer that's suitable as a desktop replacement and even as an entry-level gaming machine. We just wish it wasn't so glossy and that it came with a digital TV tuner card.
  • Pros: Quad-core CPU, 6GB RAM, 500GB hard drive
  • Cons: No digital TV tuner, very glossy, no Gigabit Ethernet
