Here is another contemporary looking slim design notebook from Dell: The Dell Inspiron 15 i15RV-8526BLK.. With a powerful and fast i5 processor, lots of memory and storage and a full keyboard with 10-key numeric keypad, it is designed for easy and smooth daily computing.

Dell Inspiron 15 i15RV-8526BLK Review
Stylish black matte with textured lid and palmrest design Dell Inspiron is slim and portable - between 1 and 1.31 inch thin- 21% thinner than previous generations. It has a 1 Lithium ion 4-cell battery and the keyboard has a 10-key number pad and this makes it easy to work on number heavy tasks.

It comes with Tray load DVD Drive (Reads and Writes to DVD/CD), 802.11bgn wireless, 2 x 2.0 Ports, 2 x USB 3.0 Ports, 8-in-1 Media Card Reader, Bluetooth tied to wireless card, HDMI port, RJ45 Ethernet, HDMI port, combination headphone/microphone jack and a Kensington Security Lock.

Verdict: In terms of cons, there is not a lot to be said other than the Windows 8 operating system that takes up more space than the Windows 7 but it is pretty much standard on the latest Windows computers. Touchscreen would have been nice to have with the Windows 8 on it. Other than that Dell Inspiron 15 i15RV-8526BLK is a good all rounder with nice looks, powerful and fast Haswell processor, comfortable keyboard with 10 key numeric keypad, good quality audio and video, good connectivity options and a lovely price tag from Amazon!
