Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 15R-N0015R3

Dell Inspiron 15R N0015R33 review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Dell Inspiron 15R N0015R33 is a well-made laptop with a solid and attractive design. It doesn't have the fastest processor, but the four USB 3.0 ports and a 1TB hard drive should please most people.

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.

AMD Radeon HD 7670M: Renamed Radeon HD 6650M and therefore still produced in 40nm.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.
