Advantages: Does everything you need a laptop to do and more
Disadvantages: Battery life could stand longer
I bought the new laptop after feeling like I was lurking in the stone ages. I wanted a laptop because I wanted to jump on the online business. I also want a laptop which had fantastic features with the best price. So, the design of the of the Inspiron 15 is pretty good, offering a smooth rounded profile and clean lines.
The laptop is shiny and black. The exterior is very smooth and classy looking. The keyboard is (of course) a Qwerty style which makes it simple to text and it has the Dell logo on the front in white. The webcam is also works well.
The laptop itself is medium size from others and manly, and fits into my bag perfectly. The laptop measures 14.7 x 9.6 x 1.5 inches making it's not as heavy as other mainstream notebooks. It weight is about 5.8 pounds, so it's not even very noticeable when you have the laptop in your bag. The display's 1366 x 768 resolution is standard for this screen size.
Listed as around 3 hours if you have charged it fully. It takes about 90 minutes to charge fully from empty. So if you don't want the battery life lack, better unplug the battery when use the laptop.
The Inspiron 15 comes with a predictable array of software preinstalled: McAfee Security Center (30-day trial); Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 (60-day trial), including a Compatibility Pack and PowerPoint 2007 viewer; PowerDVD DX; Roxio Creator DE; Windows Live Essentials; and Yahoo Toolbar. The Inspiron 15 has a one-year warranty, including toll-free, 24/7 phone support.
Sound and Graphics
The speaker is very loud. Whereas many budget notebooks' speakers are so weak that we usually leave the volume at or close to its maximum.
Graphics are nice and good. I watch a lot of movies on my laptop as it is often a better quality than our main television in home.
The laptop costs about £349 to buy. I think it is very worth as this laptop is fast, has good graphics and sound and is very simple and easy to use. There may be better deals around but I wanted the laptop as soon as possible so I didn't really shop around.
Overall, I am very happy with my laptop. I like how it looks and I enjoy how it allows me to quickly get in touch with everyone and to do all my jobs in online, as well as keeping me well-organized. I wish the battery life was longer but that's not a big problem because at last I didn't use the battery. Texting is also very simple and comfortable. If you like little notebooks that do a lot then you can't do far wrong with this one.
Summary: A great laptop that allows you to do everything you need digitally
