Excerpt: One of many great things about the Studio line is that you can opt for a third-party graphics card to give your system some video and gaming oomph, unlike with the lower-end Inspirons. Granted, Dell only currently offers the 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450 as an option for the Studio 15, but this midrange graphics engine delivered a respectable 2,085 on our 3DMark06 test at 1,024x768 resolution. It also churned out an average 16 frames per second (fps) on our F.E.A.R.
Pros: "Two headphone jacks", "Battery life span", "Laptop speakers amazing", "Facial recognition when you login", "HDMI OUTputs", "Good ram"
Overall this laptop is amazing and i would highly recommend it to anyone

Excerpt: I got this Dell 15 to play games.Being a gamer I needed a computer which could handle graphics and had RAM capabilities. Well the graphics was really another company's headache but, few laptops provided that kind of customization, Dell being one of the few. Anytime I have had an issue with something on the laptop the Dell support has been available to help me out and solve the problem quickly. and what can I say I was impressed .
Pros: "Good ram", "HDMI OUTputs ", "Facial recognition when you login", "Laptop speakers amazing", "Battery life span", "Two headphone jacks", "Amazing graphics card", "Brightness of the screen is gorgeous "
Studio 15 is a solid offering in the 15-inch consumer notebook

Excerpt: Dell's first release from its new Studio line, the Studio 15, sits between the Inspiron and XPS lines and offers a good mix of features for the price, but we'd be tempted to save up a few extra dollars for a thinner, lighter XPS.
Pros: "Borrows some of the best design features of the more expensive XPS line"
Cons: "Bulkier than the 15-inch XPS model; just under the wire for new Centrino 2 chips."
Excerpt: I would recommend this product for anyone starting college!! This is my first Dell laptop that i have purchases and to be honest, i didnt know what to expect. There were a fair amount of bad reviews for them. Since purchasing this item i have been practically glued to it and very pleased with its performance! Its a nippy wee machine. It gets used daily for multiple tasks, be it small word documents for my college course, internet searching or even watching movies on it.
Excerpt: The slot-loading drive takes a bit getting used to, at first I was trying to be gentle and place the disc in but you have to push it in or it will force the disc out by itself. This is an outstanding value, don't let people in the forums fool you, the ATI Mobility 3450 is a fantastic card it can play all the COD Video Games in high quality settings very well. Do not buy this computer if you are a speaker type , because they are the worst, really.
Excerpt: The Dell Studio is a great all round laptop. With an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, it is a fast operating system. The Dell studio comes with the latest software package. The great thing about the Dell is that it is compatible with anything. Unlike an Apple Mac where you may have to purchase alternative software to even run microsoft word, the Dell Studio has everything you need. It has an easy-on-the-eye desktop view, with simple access to shortcuts and a shortcut tab.
Excerpt: With all my reviews on computers and computer accessories, I've only just realised that I haven't actually reviewed the main laptop on which I spend the majority of my time! I guess that I've had this laptop so long that I've just taken it for granted. I purchased this laptop around 3 years ago after my previous Dell was starting to look and feel a bit dated.
Excerpt: The studio 15 has done me proud. It's a powerful enough rig even in it's most basic form to run multiple demanding programmes and high quality video games at good speeds and qualities. It's "mobility" graphics card is surprisingly versatile for an in built chip set, the screen is crisp and bright, the keyboard is comfortable and easy to use, lots of useful software is bundled as standard and the laptop itself contains as many ports and card readers as one could ever need...
Excerpt: The core i5 Sandy Bridge processor on this machine rocks. Integrated graphics performance is very good.Windows experience index for this laptop is as follows:Processor - 6.9Memory - 5.9Graphics 4.7Gaming Graphics - 6.1Primary Hard Disk - 5.8These figures are really impressive.Here are my observations for the other components:Screen - Dot pitch is high (not good). I can almost see grid lines on the screen. It is also quite reflective.Touch Pad - Decent.
Excerpt: This is the first time I've purchased a Dell laptop, so I was a little nervous. Virtually every product has negative reviews online. Well, so far I've been thrilled with the performance. It's a very snappy machine. It gets everyday use and is more than adequate to meet my needs. I especially like the high res screen and the backlight keyboard.
