Dell Inspiron 15R I15RMT-5099SLV is ideal for those that use their laptops every day.. It is solid and sturdy with power and speed, a responsive screen, good quality sound and a user friendly keyboard.

3rd generation Intel Core i5 3337U at 1.8 GHz (3M Cache, up to 2.7 GHz) is a mid-range processor that is suitable even for heavy tasks (games and video editing). 6 GB DDR3 RAM 2 DIMM at 1600MHz allows you to use memory intensive applications and to do multitasking easily. You can play most demanding 3D games at low detail settings and resolution.

500 GB Serial ATA at 5400 RPM rotational speed hard drive is plenty of space to save all your files.

15.6 HD Touch Screen with Truelife 1366x768 pixel resolution (720p) with Intel HD Graphics 4000 is more than sufficient for most tasks but you may want to spend heaps more if you are looking to get a laptop for programming, heavy gaming and video editing.

Good sound quality with Waves MaxxAudio 4.0 and capable stereo speakers.

Spill-resistant keyboard with a 10 key numeric pad and a multi-gesture touchpad.. Good quality..

Windows 8 operating system on a Touchscreen is cool with its use of customizable tiles.
