Powerful package within budget
Display and Design
The Dell Inspiron 15R 5521 flaunts a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit True Life display which flaunts a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels, and offers comfortable viewing experience compared to its counterparts. It is housed in a moon-silver colored body which looks extremely classic and elegant with rounded edges. The metallic lid has a greyish border whereas the sides are made of plastic. It has a thickness of 25.3mm and a weight of 2.3kg making it easily portable.
Processor and OS
Doing the duty under the hood is the energy efficient 1.8GHz Intel Core i5 3337U processor from the 3rd generation processor based on HM75 Express chipset. It is supported by 4GB DDR3 RAM expandable up to 8GB. The presence of 2GB AMD Radeon HD 8730M graphics card acts as a great boost for gamers who love to stay engrossed in high quality games. It runs on 64 bit Ubuntu OS which may be a bit unfamiliar for some people.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Dell Inspiron 15R 5521 poses a 1MP webcam for video calling and 500GB SATA hard disk for your storage needs. It has a tray load DVD RW Drive that allows you to transfer data via disks but doesn't add to the thickness of the outfit. The stereo speakers powered by Waves MaxxAudio 4 deliver rich, loud and crisp sound.
Battery and Connectivity
Packed with a 6 cell Li-ion battery, the Dell Inspiron 15R 5521 can run continuously for up to 3 hours. Connectivity features include digital media reader, Ethernet port, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, 2 USB 2.0 slots, HDMI out and 2 USB 3.0 ports.

Piece of Crap. No bill , Only 10 months Warranty
27 Feb 2014 By Jitendra Khatwani On

Piece of Crap. No bill , Only 10 months Warranty, Screen has lot of scratches 1.Received this product today , called dell support and they told me that the product has only 10 months warranty. 2. Screen has lot of scratches which clearly indicates that product is not new. 3. The last and the worst part , received a bill without tin number , that's a complete piece of crap, Obviously that bill isn't valid.After that I raised a complaint to flipkart and they said that they will replace this product and they raised a complaint after that I received a call from seller stating that he will mail me the bill and will extend the warranty and then he mailed me the bill but when i asked about the scratches on the screen , he simply denied and said that nothing can be done with that , He asked me to laminate the screen. What the hell was that. Again he asked me to adjust with that.then again i called flipkart and informed them the same. Now waiting for their response.

Excellent product, delivered by the best but sold by con men.
05 Mar 2014 By Amit On

About the laptop: The product is totally worth the price. I received it in mint condition and on time. As many applications I needed were not supported by Ubuntu and the Ubuntu Touchpad drivers were pathetic, I installed Windows 7 64 bit on it and other performance tools. The battery life was excellent- 9 hours watching movies (Power Saver mode) and 6 hours playing games(Balanced mode). And with respect to the comment below about electric shocks - there are none; the build is quite sturdy too. One thing people should understand is that 2GB of Video Graphics in budget laptops is technically a scam. A game running at Ultra Graphics in a 1366x768 display will almost never need more than 1GB of VRAM. The other 1GB is just a way to milk more money out of us. But, as Flipkart was charging the same amountfor this particular product as its 1 GB counterpart, I decided to go for it.About my experience with Flipkart: Shocking. I purchased this during the festive New Year's week as they were offering a 10% cash-back on HDFC cards at that time. After I received it, I realized that it only had a 10 month warranty. They coolly told me not to worry and that it was the website which was showing it incorrectly. After protesting, they "attempted" to get the warranty updated with DELL. One and a half months later, they told me it was not possible and I asked for a replacement instead of the Rs.1000 they were offering me as settlement. The replacement was delivered on time but still had the same 10 month warranty. About 3 weeks , 7 emails and 15 calls later they have initiated the refund procedure (I will receive the money a week later, hopefully). I now understood that they were basically trying to clear out the old stock without giving the 12 month warranty that they had advertised on the website. This was technically a case of fraud. I will still continue to purchase from Flipkart but I think twice before I do so.
