Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 15R-1847MRB

70% Dell Inspiron 15R-1847MRB
Source: PC Mag English
The Dell Inspiron 15R-1847MRB is a good starter desktop replacement laptop for dabbling in video and photo editing, as well as taking in the latest Blu-ray flicks. It meets the performance criteria for all tasks except for 3D gaming and in battery life. Alternatively, you'll get much battery life and similar speeds from the Acer Aspire AS5820T-5951 or the Sony VAIO VPC-EB33FM/BJ, our Editors' Choice in the budget laptop category. If you are into 3D gaming, check out the HP Pavilion dv7-4283cl or Dell XPS 15, our Editors' Choice in the desktop replacement category.

The Dell Inspiron 15R-5521 was built to be cost and energy efficient. Dell offers this model in a few different configurations, ranging from a Core i3-3217U to Core i5-3317U for better performance. In terms of graphics, models are equipped with Intel's integrated graphics up to the powerful AMD Radeon HD 8730M. Regardless of your configuration, it is a cheap laptop. The sturdy case is mainly made from plastics and the 1366X768 display is satisfactory. With 2.2 kg, the laptop is surprisingly light for a 15 inch laptop and its size seems compact and space saving. A fun feature is that the laptop is optionally available in pink, red, silver or blue.

Battery life is a strength, which is improved by energy-saving ULV processors. It can easily last for 6 hours during web browsing and light tasks. With Wi-Fi off, it could run a full day of light use on a single charge. The ports are little clustered around the edges, which can lead to unwanted disconnections during use – but this should not be an issue for those who are on the go. Although the Dell is not designed as desktop replacement, it can be comfortably used as such. To summarize, Dell's Inspiron 15R-5521 delivers a great, customizalbe performance and a sturdy build for an affordable price.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


380M: The Core i3-380M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.53 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
