If you haven’t already know the basic details of the Dell Inspiron then here it is-
- 3rd Generation Intel Core i5-3337U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.7 GHz)
- 4 GB DDR3
- 500 GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
- 15.6-Inch Screen
- Windows 8, 6-cell battery
The previous price was $600 for a new one but on sale at amazon you can get this on a price of only $430. That means you can save almost $170 and I think this is a great deal. See it here: Dell Inspiron 15.5 inch from Amzon.
There are no simple way to determine the performance of a Del product. Specially laptops. One of my previous laptop that is from Dell which I bought in the year 2008 lasted more than 3 years. Actually I didn’t do much on that except writing and my younger brother played games on it. That had only 1GB ram and a hard drive of 120GB (may be- I am not sure, can’t recall it exactly).
I was satisfied with that as I didn’t do much of the geeky works at that time. One problem i faced with that laptop was- it was heating too much after an hour of play. Forget that- what I am trying to tell is- the performance will depend on how much multitasking you do normally on your laptop and on what purpose you are willing to use it.
As for me this laptop ( Dell Inspiron 15.5 inch) is a super cool thing for my kinda work. I normally do Photoshop, gaming, web designing and obviously browsing Facebook and YouTube with at-least 13 tabs open in the Mozilla Firefox . Haven’t still seen any lag on animation or the speed of the programs after a 2 weeks run. I am running windows 8 on the machine.
2 things I must admire with this Inspiron design is it’s slim design and the keyboards. At first glance- anyone have to admit that it’s light weight and the keyboards are awesome and you can find it very entertaining putting it on your lap in a bus stop or coffee shop. Light weight has made it more portable.
Many people likes the glossy outlook beneath the keyboard while I have seen that it’s better to have a matte finished corners and outside as it is more comfortable to rest your finger s and wrist.
Inspiron has a matte finished outside. The num pad which is very helpful for inputting numbers while calculating or typing your passwords. I am glad that it has the extra num pads like my wireless keyboard at home PC. Saved a lot of time while I am doing some work on excel sheet. Actually I am used to this kind of keyboard. Many of you might find it extra but you can’t deny this is very helpful in time.
I played the NFS most wanted drift on it and the graphics was just awesome without any lag. Sorry- I am not much of a game bug- so can’t tell you what the latest game performance will be on it.
Other important things I noticed about this product is it starts very fast for my windows 8. Actually windows 8 is faster than the 7, but the processor has also a huge credibility of it’s faster loading and shutting time. The design is simply classic and I think anyone can use it with an ease. Again in this price this is a great deal you can find for a core-i5. This surely will worth the money if you buy it.
