Reviews for the Dell Inspiron iM501R-13230BK

60% Dell Inspiron iM501R-13230BK
Source: PC Mag English
With a sub-$600 price tag, the Dell Inspiron iM501R-13230BK ($599.99 list) would be a winning entry-level 15.6-inch laptop if it weren't for its lackluster performance. The iM501R-13230BK, available at Staples, has all the essentials that you should need from a mainstream laptop, including even a few extras such as a combination USB/eSATA port, great-sounding audio, and no pre-installed bloatware. But while its feature set is a boon at this low price, you can find similarly priced 15.6-inch laptops that offer noticeably faster performance.
