Powerful yet affordable business centric gadget
Display and Design
The Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 flaunts a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display with TrueLife feature and a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The multi touch display carries enough brightness and provides good viewing angles horizontally but limited vertical angles. A sharper resolution would have been more preferable but the panel looks good while displaying images, videos or running games. Moreover, the touch controls respond quickly and lets you enjoy fingertip computing. Housed in a 31.3 mm thick colored chassis with moon silver finish, it can be a bit cumbersome.
Processor and OS
On the inside, the laptop comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 CPU from the fourth generation family built on HM76 Express chipset. The CPUÂs performance is bolstered by the availability of a 6GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM, further expandable up to 8GB. The graphics bit is handled by Intel HD 4400 GPU. It runs 64bit Windows 8 OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
There is a 1MP webcam which, along with a digital microphone, makes video calling hassle free. The storage needs are met quite proficiently by the 500GB SATA hard disk. A tray load DVD RW Drive gives you the ability to stream movies or transfer data through disks. A spill resistant keyboard and a touchpad make up the input package. The stereo speakers based on Waves MaxxAudio sound deliver sound which can be distinctly enjoyed without too much noisiness.
Battery and Connectivity
The Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 claims to run continuously for a maximum period of 3 hours with its 6 cell Li-ion battery. Connectivity features include Ethernet Gigabit LAN, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, 2 USB 3.0 slots, 1 USB 2.0 port, digital media reader and HDMI out.
With a thick design, you can feel a bit awkward with the Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 but you will have access to several attractive features within a budget. An efficient configuration, a good webcam, two upgraded USB ports and a proficient configuration make it a handsome deal.
