Dell Inspiron 15R Series

Dell Inspiron 15R i15RM-7537sLV

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.

Dell's Inspiron 15R is a fairly good value for those looking at getting a strong performing laptop with some extra hard drive space. For under $1000, it certainly has features that are equal to much of the competition. Be warned that the graphics are not Direct X 11 compatible even though it carries a naming similar to ATI's latest. Dell also doesn't offer the same level of customization that they did in the past laptops.

80% Dell Inspiron 15R: A Great All-rounder
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Priced at Rs. 52,800 (with a 1 year Complete Cover warranty) , it seems to be a tad bit overpriced. While a discrete GPU is available, it does not come as a standard which is a downer. The Inspiron 15R is a great laptop for those who like a clean, understated look while having enough power under the hood to do whatever they choose. In short, the Dell Inspiron 15R is a great all-round notebook and should be on your list, if you are looking for a new workhorse.

While Dell's Inspiron 15R isn't going to distinguish itself from the competition in terms of performance for an under $600 laptop, it certainly makes up for it with flexibility. Most companies tend to skimp on peripheral ports, but Dell gives both USB 3.0 and eSATA for those looking to expand their laptops storage.

There’s not much else, good or bad, to say about the Dell Inspiron 15R (I15RN-5882DBK). It’s not quite as adept an overall performer as the Editors’ Choice models, the Asus U56E-BBL6 or Lenovo IdeaPad V570-1066AJU, but it’s certainly never disappointing, either. If every last drop of processing potential matters to you, either of those machines would be a better way to go. But if you’re content with paying less, the I15RN-5882DBK won’t make you feel like you’re compromising too much.

With the 15R, Dell has put together a versatile 15.6in budget to midrange laptop that doesn’t compromise on connectivity. Relatively minor weaknesses with its keyboard aside, it holds up well overall, with the interchangeable lids being a great way to change the design according to your mood or to match the colour of your shoes (if you’re that way inclined). Unfortunately, at the moment its pricing doesn’t make it the most competitive option out there, and without other areas where it truly excels, it’s worth checking out alternatives.

With the last version of the Dell 15R, gaming was well-nigh impossible, but this version’s premium quality display and the Core i5 processor-Nvidia pairing make the Dell 15R a very impressive all-rounder whether for office or gaming use. Needless to say, any machine which can handle current games will have no problem running office software.

While the Inspiron 15R (N5110) doesn't do all that well in gaming, its CPU is effective in terms of everyday usage. It can also perform well with applications that have higher processing demands (3D modelling, 1080p video encoding and so on).

Dell's first major update to the Inspiron 15R has both good and bad aspects to it. For the most part, performance has been improved thanks to the new Intel Core 2011 processors. In addition, the graphics system is beneficial for those that do lots of video encoding work. On the downside, the 3D performance is not as strong as a dedicated graphics part and Dell has reduced the number of customization options beyond the lid even further.

When it comes to spending $500 on a laptop, beggars can't be choosers. One of the best things about the Inspiron 15R, Dell's 2011 update to its budget and midrange consumer laptop line, is that it starts at an aggressive price while still offering Intel's second-generation Core i-series processors. Dell's Inspiron 15R is an attractively priced budget consumer laptop with a welcome set of up-to-date features and design options, but beware of the cost of customizations.

The new and improved Inspiron 15R N5110 is an appealing 15.6-inch laptop for general use and multimedia tasks but also remains very budget friendly. The a base configuration priced at $499 might not be as impressive as the system we reviewed which is almost $400 more expensive, but even the less expensive model packs enough punch to more than satisfy the technology demands of a typical family. If you need a notebook with a little extra muscle then the Intel Core i5 processor and optional AMD Radeon 6470M graphics should handle all but the most graphically intense modern games. I would have liked to see a backlit keyboard option as well as higher resolution screen options such as 1920 x 1080 or 1600 x 900 ... but those are pretty minor complaints for a budget notebook.

What you get in the Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 is a cheap notebook with lots of good features, decent speed, and good battery life. You also get a creaky chassis and an overly glossy screen with narrow viewing angles, and an ability to customise the way the laptop looks by installing a lid with a funky paint job. Overall, despite there being a few negatives in its build quality, the Inspiron R is a good notebook.

The Dell Inspiron 15R is not exactly a laptop that will awe you with its design - the same can be said of its tech specs as well. It has a simple design and its specs are oriented towards those users looking to get a home laptop on an economical budget. In our test benchmarks, it performed well. However given some of the laptop's drawbacks, such as the keys being springy, there are better alternatives available in the market, at a similar price range - one such alternative would be the Lenovo IdeaPad Z570.

It's hard to say great things about a laptop that is solidly mediocre. It's not the thinnest, prettiest, or most powerful 15.6-inch notebook around, but it still has a place in the market. The Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 performs well for its price, features an impressive four USB 3.0 ports, and has a large, if not very high-resolution, screen.

The Dell Inspiron 15R-5520 is a capable desktop replacement laptop that delivers solid third-generation Core i5 power at a wallet-friendly price. It keeps pace with the competition performance-wise and is equipped with a generous selection of wireless options, but its shiny display and narrow viewing angles hold it back. If you require more storage and an extra 2GB of system memory, consider our Editors' Choice for budget laptops, the Sony VAIO E15 (SVE15116FXS). You'll have to part with an extra $150 though.

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.

Dell Inspiron 15R-5521

Dell's Inspiron laptops were aimed at entry level and budget mobile computing for some time, but now Dell appears to focus on mid-range computing and stay modest at pricing. The Dell Inspiron 15R comes with a 15.6-inch WLED screen and a standard resolution of 1366 x 768. It’s definitely a better multimedia experience and it is also available with touchscreen. Four choices of color – red, pink, blue and silver,  give it some personalized touch. Powered by an Intel i5 processor and Windows 8, it is a good offer for every application requirements. The bigger screen improve the multimedia experience. In addition, the battery is estimated to about 6 hours, which could provide enough time to sit thru your transit time with ease.

The high-gloss finishing of the LED screen proved to be distracting, as the reflection is too heavy to be ignored. With 2.3 kg, a backpack is required for carrying it. Nevertheless, the Dell Inspiron has been reliable and continues to be. So, the 15R is a safe choice for newbies in mobile computing. It is indeed great bundle with wider than normal screen and a worry-free 1 year warranty for an affordable price.

The golden mean. With its Inspiron 15R-5521, Dell shows a rather unusual combination of energy-saving ULV processor and dedicated middle class GPU. The efficient components do not only indicate a moderate energy demand, but also a long battery life. We have tested the top-class model with AMD's brand new Radeon HD 8730M.

The Dell Inspiron 15R is back in this somewhat inconsistent 2013 edition. This year's Dell Inspiron 15R is an inconsistent product. It has great processor performance, a very nice body and good battery life, but the screen and sound quality are so bad it would be hard for us to recommend it full-heartedly.

There’s no doubt the Dell Inspiron 15R is a classy-looking machine, and there’s much to like about it, not least the responsive touchscreen, superb keyboard and slick design. However, there’s plenty of competition at this price point, not least Sony’s VAIO Fit 15E, and with that poor display blotting its copybook, it isn't the budget all-rounder we might have hoped for.

Dell's Inspiron 15R-5521 runs an ultra-low voltage CPU that can supply excellent battery life, though it's a big model that's not easy to travel with. It has a touchscreen and a solid configuration, but it could use much better networking facilities.

Dell hardly puts a foot wrong with the Inspiron 15R, providing a well-built laptop with good performance and an attractive screen for just under £500. Battery life is a particular strength too, and ensures that the Inspiron 15R will earn its keep for both work and play.

Refreshed. A touchscreen alongside Intel's latest Haswell CPUs should boost the appeal of Dell's refreshed Inspiron 15R. Outstanding battery runtimes and low emissions speak for the 15-incher. But can that compensate for the omitted dedicated graphics card?

Dell reviews


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

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 550v: Slower clocked HD 4650 (based on the same chip) and also Mobility Radeon HD 4630 called graphics card that is still produced in 55nm and supports DirectX 10.1.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

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

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

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

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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

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

AMD Radeon HD 8730M: Mid-range graphics card based on the GCN architecture.

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


Intel Core i5:

460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 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.

3210M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.5 - 3.1 GHz

2450M: Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.5 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.8-3.1 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1300 MHz Turbo).

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

Intel Core i3:

370M: The Core i3-370M 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. 2.4 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.

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.

2310M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.1 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

2330M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.2 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

2370M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.4 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card.

3217U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.8 GHz (no Turbo Boost) and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

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.

3537U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 2.0 - 3.1 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1200 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.


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.


2.3 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

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.


77.11%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
