Black matte slim design Dell Inspiron i15RV-1435BLK is one of the latest 15.6 inch budget Dell laptops that are created for everyday things. You'd actually call it a mid-level laptop with a budget price, as it comes with an Ivy Bridge Intel i3 processor and 4GB RAM, solid build, thin design, a separate 10-key numpad, decent quality display and good connectivity including a DVD drive.

Dell i15RV-1435BLK has a 3rd generation dual core Intel i3-3217U processor at 1.80 GHz speed, 4 GB 1 DIMM DDR3L SDRAM at 1600 MHz, 500 GB hard drive at 5400 rpm rotating speed and Windows 8 operating system.. Performance is satisfactory with the fast and strong i3 processor without the Turbo Boost function but the Hyperthreading technology, which means the powerful dual core chip with four threads running efficiently at 1.8 GHz. You won't have any problems running medium resource tasks and light to mid-range games as well as Microsoft Word and Excel simultaneously.

4 GB memory allows smooth multitasking without heating up or delays but the graphics card is also using the shared memory so if you intend to do heavy multitasking you may want to add another 4 GB of RAM, but it is great as it is for an average computer user. Windows 8 OS can be upgraded to the most recent 8.1 version easily on the Microsoft website free of charge with its useful functions. The hard drive is pretty much standard in most computers in this price range and it is adequate amount to store most of a regular customer's files, including multimedia- videos, photos, songs.

Some of its connectivity options include 8X DVD+/-RW Drive, DL optical drive, Intel Wireless-N, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet with RJ-45, combo headphone - microphone jack, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, security slot, 1 MP HD webcam supporting 720p and digital microphone and 8 in 1 Card Reader.

Conclusion: Dell Inspiron i15RV-1435BLK is a low or budget priced computer with mid-range features that seem to be more than adequate for a normal computer user to work on their daily tasks at work, school or home as it is also suitable for decent home entertainment. This is not a top of the range PC with the best of the best specs and the Windows 8 is criticised by customers for being a little confusing (at first). The screen is large enough and offers good image quality, 1 MP webcam is HD quality for those live chats, Waves MaxxAudio delivers impressive sound and the Intel i3 processor offers good performance levels despite being a 1.8 Ghz one thanks to partly having the hyper-threading technology. Unless you have lots more to spend on a laptop, you certainly won't be disappointed with this Dell Inspiron.
