Dell has updated its Inspiron range of consumer notebooks, but has it done enough to stamp its authority on the marketplace?

Dell Inspiron 1520 review

 

The Inspiron is the heaviest notebook in this group at just over 3kg, so it's not difficult to transport.

Dell's Inspiron 1520 produced the best 3D performance of any notebook in this group, but it's quite heavy. If you want a notebook that's powerful enough to play the latest games, the Inspiron 1520 is the one to get. We wish it wasn't so heavy and that...

The new Dell Inspiron is a very nice choice if you're after a powerful and stylish notebook. We were impressed by just about every aspect of its performance and the new look gives it a touch of flare to boot.

Dell Vostro 1520 notebook

 

This 15.4in Dell laptop has built-in 3G connectivity

Built-in 3G modem, good performance, relatively light, good battery life

Doesn't have a digital video output port, we couldn't connect to the 3G network in our area

Dell's Vostro 1520 is a 15.4in notebook with a 9-cell battery, yet it weighs a reasonable 2.7kg. With a built-in 3G modem and a powerful CPU, it's a great workhorse for the business user who wants a mid-sized notebook that's comfortable to work on.

Review Dell Vostro 1520 Notebook

 

Reasonably priced and customizable. If you?re searching for a rea ...

Classic timeless design ; Matt screen ; Good keyboard and touchpad ; Pleasant matt finish on the base unit ; Very customizable ; Recovery media included ; Good performance for the price ; Access panels allow maintenance and upgrades

Some useful ports have been omitted ; Customizing quickly drives up the price ; Tendency to overheat (touchpad gets quite warm)

Almost all major laptop manufacturers have a range of reasonably priced business models, for instance HP's Probook range, Lenovo's Thinkpad SL range or Acer's Extensa range
