Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 15-3537

80% Dell Inspiron 15
Source: Comp Reviews English
Dell's 15-inch Inspiron budget model takes much of the design from past models but refines it slightly to improve its low cost offering. It is still the thinnest and lights of the 15-inch budget laptops on the market that includes a DVD burner but it now features a touchscreen to make navigating Windows 8 even easier.

Model:

The Dell Inspiron 15-3537 comes with an Intel Core i7 4500U processor capable of clocking up to 3.0 GHz with turbo on, which makes it a laptop with a very high raw processing power. Aside from the built-in graphic cards, the unit is also equipped with an AMD Radeon HD 8850M card, which is a high performance graphic card, making even games with high requirements run smoothly.

There is no point on having a high graphical processing power if the display is not up to par. The 15.6 inch display is big enough to allow maximum viewing enjoyment and with a pixel resolution of 1600 by 900 pixels, the color and clarity of the display does not disappoint. There is no blue-ray player to fully utilize this graphical powerhouse. Furthermore, due to its powerful configurations, the battery life cannot be expected to last very long.

The Dell Inspiron 15-3537 is equipped with the basic connectivity abilities. It comes with an Ethernet port for wired connections and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n for wireless connectivity and supports Bluetooth 4.0.

All in all, this power house is can be classed as a desktop replacement. Despite its weight, it is really capable of tremendous performance output. It is suitable for heavy users who want some mobility.

AMD Radeon HD 8850M: High-performance GPU based on the same chip as the HD 7850M.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4500U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.0 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.
