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.

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.

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.


2.6 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.
