Available at Staples for $649.98 (list), the Dell Inspiron i1545-4742JBK is a comfortable, albeit ordinary looking, 15-inch mainstream notebook with a spacious hard drive and a bright, 15.6-inch HD display. Its Intel Pentium CPU doesn't offer the kind of horsepower that comes with the more powerful (and more expensive) Intel Core 2 Duo chips, but it is still a dual-core processor that can handle your home and school productivity workload with relative ease. The Dell Inspiron i1545-4742JBK is a good choice for cash-strapped students or anyone seeking an affordable, well-equipped 15-inch notebook. Just don't expect blazing performance from this Pentium-based system.

There is nothing inherently wrong with the Dell Inspiron i1545-4583JBK. This entry-level 15.6-inch laptop can be found at Staples for $639.98 (list) and features a standard configuration that includes an Intel dual-core CPU, 4GB of memory, and integrated Intel graphics. The Dell Inspiron i1545-4583JBK is a solid entry-level, 15.6-inch laptop. Its build quality, audio output, and battery life impress, but its CPU is a generation behind what you'll find in laptops that cost only $100 or so more.

Dell reviews


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

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

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


Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.

T4300:

Entry - middle class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated. 

T4400:

Entry to middle class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated. 


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.

2.7 kg:


65%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
