The Dell Inspiron 15z (I15Z-4801SLV) will appeal to mainstream users who need Core i7 multimedia prowess in their day-to-day lives. This might mean the world to a budding Spielberg or Ansel Adams, who will want to work on their latest masterpiece, and then share it via DVD or by displaying it on a HDTV via HDMI. For most mainstream users, however, the Editors' Choice remains the Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51 as it's a better option for mainstream PC users at a better price point.

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.

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.  


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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
