Reviews for the Dell Studio 1525

90% Dell Studio 1525 notebook
Source: Pocket Lint English
While it may lack the cachet of a Sony VAIO or Apple MacBook, at this price there are very few laptops that can compete with Dell’s Studio 1525. Excellent quality, usability and great performance combine to make it one of the best mainstream laptops you can currently buy. We recommend staying away from the optional extras, however, as it’s easy to turn this machine from a reasonable value machine into one costing considerably more.

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
