15.6″ Dell Inspiron i7537T-1122sLV via Amazon
Silver Dell Inspiron i7537T-1122sLV is a decent mid-range 15.6 inch touchscreen notebook as part of the 15 7000 series, with a fast 4th generation ultra low voltage Intel i5 processor, ample space for storage, good amount of memory and Intel HD 4400 graphics.
It is another reliable computer by Dell that offers versatile and smooth performance and responsiveness to handle the moderately complex tasks with speed and efficiency, in a durable and nice looking package. Dell Inspiron i7537T comes with the April 2014 release dual core Haswell Intel i5 4210U processor (3MB L3 Cache) at speeds of 1.70 to 2.70GHz with turbo boost and hyper threading for working with up to 4 threads in parallel and to enhance the CPU efficiency, 6GB DDR3L SDRAM memory at 1600MHz to be able to smoothly run several applications and browsers simultaneously, 1TB Serial ATA hard drive at 5400 rpm spindle speed which would be plenty for most people and 64-bit Windows 8.1 operating system for a decent platform for whatever it is you want to do on the laptop.
15.6 inch Truelife HD LED-backlit widescreen edge-to-edge touch display using Corning Gorilla NBT Glass with a 10-finger multi-touch support, 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and the integrated Intel HD graphics 4400 with shared memory offers reasonably sharp picture quality- not Full HD and not with IPS panel’s wide viewing angles but still more than adequate.
Sound is nice, crisp, rich and clear when you’re listening to songs or stream movies, thanks to the High Definition Audio improved with the Waves MaxxAudio Pro and it comes with a 1.0 MP widescreen high definition webcam for informal live chats on Skype or more formal chats for work purposes. It seems to be a decent multimedia system with decent video and audio quality along with some gaming power- older games at higher settings and newer games at lower.
Silver modern Dell Inspiron i7537T with a nicely forged aluminium design with diamond-cut beveled edges weighs 5.63 pounds and has the dimensions of 14.94 x 10.03 x 0.87 inches so it is very slim but with an average weight for a 15 inch touchscreen laptop. Battery life is quite good as claimed by the manufacturer and some customers as the 4-cell lithium ion battery seems to last for 6 to 7 hours. US English keyboard is backlit for working comfortably in dim light and with a travel distance between the keys of 1.1mm, 10-key numpad for easier data entry and a large touchpad of 105 x 80mm.
It doesn’t have an optical drive but other connectivity options seem to be covered, including the Miracast enabled 802.11abgn wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet LAN (10/100/1000) with RJ-45 connector, 8 in 1 Media Card Reader (SD/SDHC/SDXC /MMC/MMC+/MS/MS Pro/MSXC), 4 USB 3.0 ports (one of them with PowerShare), an HDMI port, a Headphone output/Microphone input combo, Security lock slot and FastAccess Facial Recognition.
Conclusion: Dell Inspiron 15 7000 i7537T-1122sLV is a sleek and modern, easy to use and navigate, solid and durable touchscreen computer that comes with features like the automated Dell Back-up and Recovery for security of your multimedia and other files, My Dell as simple to use and access support tool as well as one year parts and labor warranty. Quarter 2 2014 release Intel i5-4210U is a fast dual core processor with a Passmark benchmark score of 3423 as of today- 11 March. So it is capable of handling daily and more demanding or complex tasks.
The Thermal Design Power of 15 watts helps with the long 6.5 hour battery life on average use. We like the spacious 1TB storage even though it is at the average speed of 5400rpm, which could be 7200rpm or SSD could be better but it is still fast enough as even the first two entry level Apple iMac models come with 5400rpm hard drives and 6GB is plenty to multitask efficiently at this level. Overall it is a great computer that is easy on the eyes and works well as long as you are not into advanced 3D gaming and is suitable for school work, home entertainment and any kind of everyday use.
