Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 15R-2728MRB

70% Dell Inspiron 15R-2728MRB
Source: PC Mag English
With the Dell Inspiron 15R-2728MRB, you get good productivity and multimedia performance at a reasonable price. You also get a strong feature set, including all the wireless options you could want, a sizeable hard drive, and a Blu-ray drive. Lackluster graphics and battery performance hold it back, however. If you want a powerful 15-inch desktop replacement laptop with gaming chops, the latest technology, and a longer battery life, the Editors' Choice Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Thunderbolt) is still your best bet, albeit a pricier one.

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.

480M: The Core i5-480M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.66-2.9 GHz (Turbo Mode). 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.


15.6": 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. However 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.


2.7 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
