15.6 inch Dell Inspiron i15zT-4802sLV is a touchscreen ultrabook that is lightweight and compact with decent battery life and high performance technical specs such as Intel Core i5 processor, 6GB RAM memory and 500GB hard drive along with 32GB Solid State Drive, impressive screen and audio quality at an affordable price.

Dell Inspiron i15zT can definitely perform well at your regular computing like web surfing, Skype, spreadsheets and videos.. 6GB memory is satisfactory for any user to run several apps and browsers at the same time smoothly. Hard drive at 500GB is only OK as compared to the solid i5 processor at 1.8 GHz (up to 2.7GHz with turbo boost) and the generous RAM, that is if saving many large files, otherwise more than enough. Along with the hard drive space, you also have the 32GB SSD for fast and smooth operation of the computer and quicker program startups. The CPU along with the RAM and SSD will cope with the more serious tasks quite effectively too.

15.6 inch LED touchscreen with 10-finger multi-touch, 1366 x 768 max screen resolution and Intel HD Graphics 4400.. Having a touchscreen is almost a must with the Windows 8 operation system which has certain options for touchscreens only. Intel HD 4400 graphics card is quite all right, although it is just an incorporated card. You'll be OK with the older video game titles but anticipate delays and lags with the most advanced games or just reduce the settings. HD touchscreen is accompanied by a prime sound system- Waves Maxx Audio along with Skullcandy speakers.

Moon Silver Dell Inspiron is only 0.83 inch thick and weighs just 4.8 pounds- both of which make it rather portable. It comes with a backlit full size keyboard which provides typing efficiency and accuracy in dim light as well. However you won't find a numeric pad on the right so the keyboard itself and the trackpad are located more in the middle, which can make typing easier.

Its 6-cell lithium ion battery will give you as much as 7 hours of battery life in average usage. Connectivitywise you have the 802.11b/g/n, Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 - RJ 45, 8x DVD+/-RW optical drive, 8-in-1 media card reader, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port as well as a mini HDMI output, headphone out / microphone in combo, Bluetooth 4.0 and a built-in webcam with microphone.

Conclusion: Dell Inspiron i15zT-4802sLV is definitely an above average reliable and powerful computer. The only thing to criticize would be the Windows 8 as usual but you'll get used to it or can download the Windows 8.1 for free and it is a little bit better. Dell Inspiron is lightweight and slim, has a strong i5 processor, great quality touchscreen and sound, very decent battery life and a backlit keyboard. All with the price tag of a budget computer, not to be missed!
