Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 1525

81% Review Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook | Notebookcheck
More than just Office. The Dell Insprion 1525 scores not only points in typical aspects important for office notebooks, but also regarding a number of multimedia features. Besides a good workmanship, an user-friendly keyboard and a clear design, it also offers, e.g., an up-to-date HMDI port. Inside a Dual Core processor by Intel and two GB RAM ensure sufficient performance.

Located right in the middle of the company's line-up, the Dell Inspiron 15 is one of the most versatile and affordable mid-range laptops available, with the cheapest base configuration on Dell's Web site starting at around £300. The Dell Inspiron 15 is extremely customisable, so you can tweak it until you find the version that suits you best, although adding extras quickly raises the price. What won't change are the solid construction and good keyboard. Our configuration handled everyday tasks well, although it's by no means a gaming machine.

Dell’s all-purpose notebook offers a bright display, good ergonomics, and helpful software, but multitaskers will want to upgrade the processor. As you might expect with a budget notebook, the $499 Dell Inspiron 15 is a no-frills machine: It lacks multimedia controls or a webcam, and its graphics performance is poky. But for users on a budget with light computing needs and a desire for a screen large enough to watch movies, this machine delivers.

Dell's Inspiron 1525 has some of the lowest price offerings available if you are willing to shop around for special offers. Be warned though, Dell has a wide range of configurations and often a system with poor specs can end up with a higher price tag than another. Because of this, shoppers need to be very vigilant about what the Inspiron 1525 comes with. With some vigilant shopping, consumers can end up with a very strong laptop PC for a low price.

Dell's Inspiron 1525 is an excellent mainstream choice for basic computing, especially because the direct-from-Dell version is highly flexible, offering extensive configuration options. The Dell Inspiron 1525-139B is a classic midsize, mainstream laptop, but this specific retail-only configuration has a wimpier battery than its predecessor.

Dell Inspiron 15 Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English
The Inspiron 15 is definitely a solid notebook. It won’t win any awards for performance since it doesn’t offer the fastest processor or dedicated graphics. It is good for those that want a quality computer that performs well on office tasks and multimedia, but don’t want to spend a whole lot of money. I really like the fact the Inspiron 15 is relative light and thin for a 15.4″ screen notebook. It has most of the port options you could want too. The lid design offerings are nice, though the actually look and shape of the notebook is pretty sterile and nothing as cool as the XPS M1530. Overall the Inspiron 15 is a good buy, will get the job done, but won’t win any design or performance awards.

At one time, Dell was the market leader in terms of notebook design and innovation. However, in recent times this simply hasn’t been the case but with the Inspiron 1525 we feel the company is finally back on track. This notebook offers a great machine at an affordable price and is currently one of our favourite family-sized notebooks.

The Dell Inspiron 1525 is the textbook example of a midsize, mainstream laptop. As with all Dells, it's highly configurable, and with a few high-end touches such as HDMI output and touch-sensitive media controls, it's good value for students just about to go off to university.

Dell's Inspiron range is designed to provide power and features for home and family use, without breaking the bank. The Inspiron 1525 (£599 inc. VAT) is a mid-range model that delivers impressive style, performance and usability. The slim chassis weighs 2.7kg and is ideal for basic travel use. Its 278-minute battery life is excellent. To add your own style, the screen panel can be customised from a choice of colours and designs at time of purchase.

Adding some features missing from its 14-inch cousin, the Dell Inspiron 1525 is the textbook example of a midsize, mainstream laptop--a basic workhorse with few surprises. It may be a bit large for daily campus travel, but it should last you the full four years.

Dell's Inspiron 1525 has some of the lowest price offerings available if you are willing to shop around for special offers. For those looking at the least expensive budget versions, the system tends to lack a few features compared to the average budget laptop system which makes it a mixed offering unless you are willing to upgrade the system.

With a complete top-to-bottom revamp of Dell's entire laptop line in mid-2007, why the need for a new mainstream model so soon? While the current 14-inch  Inspiron 1420 hits the size/features/performance sweet spot, and the high-end XPS M1330 and the XPS M1530 are slick, thin 13- and 15-inch models, respectively, the middle-of-the-road Inspiron 1520 was always a little too big and clunky for its own good. Taking consumer complaints to heart, Dell updates its mainstream 15-inch laptop with the Inspiron 1525. It's thinner, lighter, and less expensive than its predecessor.

Overall, the Dell Inspiron 1525 is an excellent budget notebook with good looks and solid performance. This isn't a gaming machine, but the 1525 can handle everyday computing tasks with ease ... and looks good while doing them. In short, the Inspiron 1525 is exactly the notebook that the Inspiron 1520 should have been in the first place. Even though the 1525 is arriving a little late to the party we suspect it's going to be a very welcomed guest in many homes.

With its $999 price tag, the Dell Inspiron 1525 is one of the most “expensive” budget notebooks we've reviewed. Even so, its sleek design, strong dual-core performance, long battery life, and top-notch multimedia components set it apart from the pack. With its strong performance, high-res screen, and long battery life, it’s easy to see why the Dell Inspiron 1525 is our favorite mainstream budget notebook. The addition of a webcam and an HDMI port are just icing on the cake.

With a new look and a slimmer design, the Dell Inspiron 1525 is poised to provide a seamless computing experience for mobile consumers and deskbound home-theater enthusiasts. It inherits many of the cool features from the Inspiron 1520 while adding one more, the HDMI port. Unfortunately, the slimmer design also means that it had to forgo an option for dedicated graphics. A thinner and lighter Inspiron 1525 is guaranteed to boost mobile productivity, but gamers will be disappointed by the lack of graphics options.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T5500:

Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom-2M core without virtualization functions.

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.79 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
