Slimmed down. The new version of the Inspiron 15 of the 7000-series is much slimmer than the predecessor, and now has a 4K display. However, the restriction is not only limited to the chassis: You also have to live with drawbacks in terms of graphics performance and battery runtimes.

The lower end models offer great build quality and good value for the price. The high end $1,449 UHD 4K model with SSD and 16 gigs of RAM used for this review isn't as great a value when you can get more powerful laptops at that price. Still, it has a classy chassis, excellent build quality and serviceable internals, which earn points back.

At the end of the day, if it you’re shopping in this price range, even Dell has better options. The base XPS 15 is only $100 more, and while it’s technically less impressive in some respects, the actual user experience is far superior. The XPS system is more attractive, more portable, and ships with relatively little bloat.

Windows convertibles are in a sorry state. The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 SE 2-in-1 is the sixth model we’ve reviewed so far this year, and like those that’ve come before it, there are some serious flaws. Battery life is not on par with the best thoroughbred laptops and the hardware is a bit too expensive, given what’s received.

All told, the Inspiron 15 7000 presents a challenging value proposition. On the upside, it's a well-built multimedia laptop with a great 4K display, a pleasing design, and solid battery life. Although somewhat pricey at $1,449, it's much less than Dell's deluxe XPS 15 and offers many of the same features.

Dell made the Inspiron 15 7000 an elegant multimedia notebook. Its sexy design will make you want to show it off, and its stunning and responsive optional 4K touch screen will be the envy of your friends. However, while this system offers solid overall performance, the discrete AMD graphics aren't powerful enough to play the most demanding games, especially at its native resolution.

The Dell is a good all-round machine for web browsing, light work and less demanding games, with reasonable looks and build quality alongside decent components. Other systems offer better prospects for more specialist tasks, though, so only opt for the Inspiron if you need a jack-of-all-trades notebook.

If a big laptop is on your shopping list, the Inspiron 15 7000 is a contender, but a quirky one. It can take time to get used to its design; the lack of a number pad on the keyboard makes it unlike big laptops we’ve seen from other vendors, and gives the notebook an over-sized feel. The 4K screen is great for viewing photos, but its reflective finish was an annoyance. For navigation, the touchpad wasn’t good to us.

Dell Inspiron 15 (7548) review – sleek and powerful notebook with UHD touch screen, great for multimedia
Source: Laptop Media English
Dell Inspiron 7548 is a great multimedia notebook with a thin, sleek and premium design. Maybe a bit on the heavier side, but quite manageable. The laptop is designed to look great, but it does struggle a bit to keep the internals cool. This may be because of the sufficient grills for dispersing the heat, which are located only at the bottom. Nevertheless, this can be fixed easily with an external cooling pad. But it’s quite unlikely that a normal user would be capable of reproducing such big CPU and GPU loads in real-life conditions, so we can’t say this is a considerable drawback.

Comment

Model: The Dell Inspiron 15-7548 is an all-round laptop with a slim profile and impressive hardware. A slim laptop does not need to compromise rigidness or performance with the current technology out there. Dell has designed the Dell Inspiron 15-7548 to be solid and elegant with curved edges, a beautiful lid and a two tone color scheme. The interior comes in dark grey while the external surface is a matte metal finish. The 15.6 inch 4K Ultra HD Truelife panel supports 10-point touch input. Colors are accurate and clarity is impressive yet the same can't be said for brightness.

The Windows 8.1 system comes with an Intel Core i7-5500U processor, 16 GB DDR3L RAM, an AMD Radeon R7 M270 GPU with dedicated 4 GB DDR3 VRAM and a 256 GB SSD for storage. Thus, the Dell Inspiron 15-7548 is a good laptop for moderate gaming as well as work. Audio quality is impressive with stereo speakers utilizing Waves MaxxAudio processing. Other features include a webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 2.0 port, a HDMI out and a card reader. The Dell Inspiron 15-7548 weighs in at 2.06 kg and comes equipped with a Lithium Ion battery rated at 58 Wh.

AMD Radeon R7 M270: Mid-range graphics card based on the GCN architecture. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
5500U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.1 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products. Based in Texas, Dell employs more than 82,700 people worldwide (2009). In 2006, Dell purchased the computer hardware manufacturer Alienware. In most countries, the laptops are directly sold to consumers by Dell and each notebook custom-assembled according to a selection of options. In 2014, the global market share of Dell laptops was 12.3% and it is 14% in 2016.
62.44%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
