Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 15-3551

70% Dell Inspiron 15 3000
Source: Comp Reviews English
Dell's new Inspiron 15 3551 does make an impression thanks to its thinner profile and its surprisingly long warranty. Running times are also better than most of the competition. These features are help back slightly by its performance that is not any better with its quad core processor or the fact that it does not come with a DVD drive. Still, for some buyers size and running times may be enough to make it a solid choice.

Comment

Model: Dell has offered a very affordable 15 inch laptop meant to give users their money’s worth. Since this is Dell, you get both optimal functionality and portability. For starters, there is a 15.6 inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The screen is glossy but has added brightness and decent viewing angles. The body is made entirely out of matte black plastic. The back panel is textured and there is a Dell logo. The front display features a black bezel all around the screen and the display panel is apparently very sturdy. The battery can provide up to 5 hours independent power usage.

This laptop is powered by an Intel Pentium N3540 quad core processor with 1M cache, a base clock of 2.16 GHz and a burst frequency of 2.66 GHz. Alternatively, you can choose an Intel Celeron N2840 processor with basically all the same features as the Intel Pentium, except for a burst frequency of only 2.58 GHz. The other hardware here include a 4 GB RAM, a 500 GB SATA HDD 5400 rpm hard disk and an Intel HD graphics card. Windows 8.1 64 bit is used as OS. The Inspiron 15 weighs about 2.4 kg and is slightly over 2 cm thick, which provides well for moderate portability.
