Reviews for the Dell Inspiron M501R

80% Dell Inspiron M501R AMD triple-core laptop
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Overall, the triple-core Dell Inspiron M501R is a great laptop worthy of consideration if you want a $999 system that can do just about everything. It even outshone the quad-core version of this laptop in the majority of our tests thanks to its slightly faster clock speed of 2.2GHz compared to the 1.6GHz speed of the quad-core, although the quad-core version would come into its own under heavier multitasking loads.

The Dell Inspiron M501R has a triple-core AMD Phenom II X3 processor, and offers a very good combination of features and looks, and dedicated graphics for a sub-Rs. 40,000 laptop.

This configuration of the M501R will cost you Rs. 40,900, which is not a bad price for a quad core notebook. The build and aesthetics are appealing and the 15.6" LED screen is great when it comes to watching movies or even just surfing the net. My major problem with the M501R is the Phenom II X4 CPU which isn't much powerful compared to the Corei5 450 that is faster and does not heat up as much. In fact, you can get this exact same configuration with an Intel Corei5 460M that not only runs at a faster 2.53 GHz but can also TurboBoost up to 2.8GHz; all this for the exact same price.

Overall, the Dell Inspiron M501R is a very good unit. We like its specifications and it provides a good amount of CPU  power for everyday tasks as well as more advanced ones. However, it would be nice if it came with a digital TV tuner so that it could be used as a media centre.

70% Dell Inspiron M501R 15.6in quad-core notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Dell's Inspiron M501R is a nice looking 15.6in notebook with a quad-core AMD Phenom II CPU and 6GB of RAM. It's a good performer that's suitable as a desktop replacement and even as an entry-level gaming machine. We just wish it wasn't so glossy and that it came with a digital TV tuner.

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.

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

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


P920: Slow clocked quad core CPU for mid size laptops (due to the 25 W TDP). Single threaded applications and games suffer from the low core speed.» 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.


2.6 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.
