Dell’s Inspiron 15R looks more expensive than it is thanks to the shiny, metallic-looking wrist rest and lid. It’s more than a pretty face, though, managing to strike just the right balance between features and performance.
The 15R comes with 4GB of RAM and a 2.4GHz Core i5 450M processor which sped through our benchmarks, topping the charts in all our tests. It’s powerful enough to handle most demanding tasks for some time to come. Its dedicated Mobility Radeon HD 5470 graphics chip is capable of playing modern 3D games, although it managed only 18fps in our demanding Call of Duty 4 test, so you’ll have to settle for lower screen resolutions than the native 1,366×768 to achieve a playable frame rate.
Dell has managed to squeeze in a numeric keypad for fast data entry in spreadsheets. While keyboard is large with no undersized keys, the keys on the number pad are narrower. This led to a few typos until we got used to their small size, but overall, it’s a good keyboard. The touchpad is large and accurate, but the buttons don’t give quite as positive a click as we’d like.
