Reviews for the Dell Inspiron iM501R-1212PBL

50% Dell Inspiron iM501R-1212PBL
Source: CNet English
The Dell Inspiron iM501R-1212PBL offers a pleasing design, a multitouch touch pad, and a useful selection of ports, but it can't quite keep pace with competing Intel-based models. Worse than its yielding application performance to rival Intel, the AMD-based Inspiron iM501R offers below-average battery life and its keyboard squeaks.We'd like the attractive and affordable Dell Inspiron iM501R-1212PBL more if it wasn't so slow and squeaky.

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

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.


2.7 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.
