7 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

We calculated the average reviews for all DELL notebook PCs and also specifically for DELL laptops and found that in both cases DELL had good reviews.

Has a Front Camera

Unlike most of the other laptops of this spec and age which do not have a front camera, the DELL Inspiron 15 has a front camera.

We compared this laptop to all the other laptops with a front camera and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Lenovo X240[plb_2389692_price], the HP 15-j151sa[plb_2981268_price], and the Asus PU551LA[plb_2446718_price] is also worth considering.

7 Other reasons to consider the DELL Inspiron 15

Released Over Two Years Ago

This notebook PC has been on the market for over two years.

Average Screen Size

The Inspiron 15 has a relatively typical screen size (15.6 inches) compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this spec and age.

Alternative 15.6" portable PCs currently available which you might want to look at include the HP ProBook 450 G1[plb_2130025_price], or the Asus PU551LA[plb_2446718_price] which is cheaper.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the DELL Inspiron 15 has a fairly standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops of a similar age and spec to the Inspiron 15.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity laptops currently available including cheaper notebook PCs such as the HP ProBook 450 G1[plb_2130025_price], or the Asus PU551LA[plb_2446718_price].

If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the HP 15-j151sa[plb_2981268_price] (1TB and cheaper).

Average Weight

At 2.2 kilograms, the Inspiron 15 has a pretty standard weight compared to most of the other portable PCs of this type and age.

Average Internal Memory

The Inspiron 15 has a fairly typical internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other portable PCs that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 4GB internal memory laptops and we think the HP ProBook 450 G1[plb_2130025_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Lenovo X240[plb_2389692_price] (8GB and cheaper), or the HP 15-j151sa[plb_2981268_price] (8GB and cheaper).

1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution

This laptop has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is typical of many laptops of this type and age.

Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on portable PCs of this spec and age. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

We compared this portable PC to all the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media and we think cheaper laptops such as the HP ProBook 450 G1[plb_2130025_price], and the Asus PU551LA[plb_2446718_price] is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo X240[plb_2389692_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the Acer Aspire V3-371[plb_2964527_price] (ssd and cheaper).
