I recently ordered and I am now enjoying my Dell Inspiron 15R laptop. I had been in the market for a latop for some time now (my first and only other laptop still has Windows 95 on it — so, let’s say it underperforms for my needs). I made a list of must-haves then looked at different manufacturers and models for the right fit.
I knew a 15-inch screen was a prerequisite as well as 4G RAM and a speedy processor. I had purchased desktops from Dell before and when I had found the 15R came in at the price point I wanted while also matching up with my list, I knew it was right for me.
The screen is gorgeous, the touchpad is capacious and the speed fabulous. I like the feel of the touchpad and that the keyword has a dedicated numeric pad. The island-style keys is new for me, but I took to it in no time.
What I have noticed the absence of when using the15R is heat. The machine runs comfortably cool, even after hours of continuous use. It is also quiet. Battery life is close to 6 hours, I believe, though I have not run it that long.
The machine has HDMI and Bluetooth, though I have not had use for either yet.
All in all, a great package. I cannot think of what could be added to make it better for the price. I highly recommend it.
