Reviews for the Dell Inspiron E1520

60% Dell Inspiron E1520 Budget Notebook PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
One of the key features of Dell's new notebook lineup including the Inspiron 1520 is the choice of colors. For an extra $50, users can select from one of seven colors other than the basic black. The drawback is that some colors may cause delays in shipping and some colors have had reports of issues with the exterior cases by users. One of the bright spots of the Inspiron 1520 is the processor. Dell has decided to use the Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 for the majority of its budget range. This is a solid dual core processor that provides excellent performance for the cost. Users who want to pay more can upgrade to the new T7000 series processors but it will greatly increase costs. It is matched up with 1GB of PC2-5300 DDR2 memory that is average for this segment and will let it run Vista. Storage is where the Inspiron 1520 needs some help though.

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.

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.
