Dell Inspiron i15RV-1333BLK reviewHere comes from Dell another budget laptop that offers quite a good value for the money paid. The Dell Inspiron i15RV-1333BLK is a laptop that is conveniently priced at a little above $350. It has a spec sheet that can easily impress people who are looking for an everyday use laptop. To know more about this budget device, continue reading the review.

Design

The classic Inspiron design has been repeated for the nth time in this one. It’s more like if it isn’t broken why fix it kind of a strategy going on here. The device weighs only a little above 5 pounds which means you can carry her around without breaking your arm. The textured print around the touchpad gives a warm feeling rather than the usual plastic coating; nothing more to tell about the design here.

Display

The display is a 15.6 inch high definition display. By high definition we mean it has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. There has been confusion that this one is a full HD display (1080p) but it isn’t. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The display is well suited for enjoying media especially movies and games. Since this one is better used as an everyday machine, you can’t expect anything more from the display (on this price).

Processor and Memory

The processor that powers the Dell Inspiron i15RV-1333BLK is an Intel i3 processor from the 4th generation. The 4th generation processors are quite good in handling more workload and the fact that you are getting it in a budget device means nothing more than value here. This is a good processor for simple tasks like word processing, spreadsheet applications and also browsing and other day to day activities. Light users won’t have anything to complain about.

The memory here is a 6GB DDR3 RAM. This is a bump compared to the usual 4 gigs you are getting in other devices, so it’s kinda nice. This amount of memory allows you to perform multi tasking to great efficiency. It does help in the case of some intensive applications.

Hard drive and Graphics

There is 500GB of space in the hard drive. It comes pre-installed with Windows 8 so you don’t have all the 500GB but a little less than that. This is a good offering especially when you realize that this is a budget device. The same explanation stands good for the absence of a solid state drive.

The graphics department is covered by Intel HD graphics. This is an average (or should we say default) setup for gaming but it does help you to play some really good games. If you are an avid gamer, this is surely not for you but for other casual gamers out there, no complaints.

Battery life and Connectivity

There is a 4-cell lithium ion battery pack in the laptop. This should easily offer around 4 hours of battery since the display is only 15.6 inches. This makes the laptop better suited for home use rather than outside or in a place where you have an alternative like a power source.

There are some connectivity options including the 4 USB ports and an HDMI port that enables higher end connectivity. There is also an optical drive for those who use DVDs. There is very little chance you’ll find a laptop with an optical drive at this price point, so it’s really a valuable addition here. Bluetooth connectivity and other LAN stuffs are of the usual standards here.

Is It Worth the Money?

This laptop comes with a very affordable price tag. It stills offers you some great features like a 4th generation i3 processor, 6 gigs of memory and even an optical drive which you wouldn’t get at this price point. It really is a good buy when you know how much you are getting out of it.

Pros

  • Good Budget Package
  • 6GB Memory

Cons

  • Not very premium feel

Summary

The Dell Inspiron i15RV-1333BLK is a great device for people in a budget and this review should have helped you to understand that (we could’ve mentioned it more than once, thanks for bearing with us). It will serve you best if you need a laptop for doing your everyday tasks like browsing the web and office work.
