Though the Inspiron 15 M5030 didn't shine in our benchmarks, we still found it adequate for everyday computing chores such as surfing the web, updating Facebook, and playing casual games. It's not often that a 15-inch notebook is priced as low as $350 and is still viable, with a comfortable (albeit loud) keyboard. The lack of HDMI will turn off some, and this is definitely not a machine for multimedia enthusiasts, but if you're looking for something bigger and more capable than a netbook, the Inspiron 15 M5030 is a good value.

Dell's Inspiron M5030 laptop isn't going to be standing out against the competition in terms of performance or features, but it certainly is affordable. With street pricing around $500, it is roughly $100 cheaper than many Intel based PCs with a similar level of features and performance. The downside is that it is heavier than most of the competition and doesn't have the same level of quality feel.

Other than a tough-to-beat price tag, little stands out about the Dell Inspiron IM5030-3413B3D. For not much more, other laptops offer faster performance and come with better features.
