The arrival of the R series of Dell laptops is a radical departure from the drab physical appearance of budget laptops and represents Dell’s desire to inject some class in the lower end products. Not only are these computer available in three colors, red black and grey, the glossy finish brings them very close to their more expensive counterparts – in physical appearance at least.

The operating system is Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and, with a lithium ion six cell battery, the laptop gives the user up to four hours off a power source. The laptop is easy to use with external devices as it has four USB ports. This is a generous number of ports for a laptop of this size and they enable the user to use add-ons such an external mouse and MP3 players.

Additional features that make the Dell Inspiron 15R connectible to other devices include an HDMI which enables the user to connect to a TV or external monitor. The laptop has an optical DVD drive and a Gigabit Ethernet allowing for fast network wired connection. For audio, the Inspiron 15R has speakers at the front of the chassis and, should the quality fail to satisfy you, there is a headphone jack whose use greatly improves audio quality.
