    YourName (San Francisco, CA USA) –

    This review is from: Dell Inspiron 15 i15RV-6190BLK 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black Matte with Textured Finish) (Personal Computers)

    As a college student on a budget, I really needed a computer that would do many tasks on the road without hurting the wallet. I have a prehistoric 7-8 year old Dell Dimension E510 desktop that is super slow. So, I made the decision to buy a laptop under $400 yet still faster than my desktop.
    I set my eyes on this laptop from a local electronics store. I compared specs, from the size and weight, to the nitty features like the number of USBs. And so, here I have it.

    Let’s start off with the design.
    The design of this notebook is, well, plastic. However, it isn’t cheap plastic. The materials used are actually pretty good for its price point. The notebook is nice and rounded around the corners and the thickness of this notebook is about one inch. Now, most notebooks for this price point would be much thicker…Around 1.3in-1.4in, but Dell managed to squeeze everything in 1 inch. This is pretty darn good considering the tools this notebook provides. On the left side of the computer you have a headphone/microphone jack, 3 USB (2 USB 3.0) (1 USB 2.0), Ethernet, HDMI cable, and a power outlet. On the left side you have the optical drive and one more USB port (2.0). So the total amount of USBs this notebook has is 4. 4 USB ports, 2 of which are 3.0. USB 3.0 is relatively new for the market, and this allows much quicker transfer speeds compared to the 2.0s. However, most computers at this price point do not have USB 3.0s, or if they do, it would only be one or two. But keep in mind that this notebook has 4 USB ports. And at this price point, most if not all computers only have about 2 or 3. The optical drive is also a neat feature. For a 1 inch laptop that has an optical drive is pretty impressive considering the price. Most notebooks that are 1 inch or less usually skip the optical drive. Now, the bad thing about the thinness of this notebook is that it does not have a VGA port. You might need a HDMI to VGA port adapter for that. However, considering VGA’s thickness and the thinness of notebooks that are coming out each year, VGA is bound to be obsolete due to the benefits of HDMI.

    On the interior, the notebook has a LARGE track pad. And this is good especially when it is running on windows 8 (I’ll get to that later).
    Below the track pad, there are two left and right buttons. These buttons feel and sound cheap but that is not to be unexpected. When running, the track pad get quite warm. You really can’t fault the computer for this because this is a one inch notebook. Since the ram sticks are essentially below the track pad, prepare yourself to have warm fingers. The keyboard is an island style keyboard that are evenly spaced. The key travel is okay. After writing a 5-6 page essay. It’s also got a 10 key number pad. However, I do wish that number lock had a tiny light located on the button like the caps lock does. As I’m typing, I sometimes reach over to the number lock while attempting to backspace. One minor complaint is keyboard flex towards the F8-F10 keys, not a big deal since these keys aren’t often used. Also, like other reviewer have mentioned before. This computer has a sharp lip. As you are typing, the sharp lip is somewhat irritating. Doesn’t hurt to take out a fine grit sand paper is smooth out that lip.
    Lastly, the spacing between the keys have a glossy finish. I notice that this attracts dust and requires occasional cleaning.

    As for the hardware,
    You get 500gb of storage but only 456gb of that storage is usable (the non-usable storage has to be used for the operating system. It runs on 4gb of ram and although it is sufficient, you may want to upgrade to 6 or 8 gigs of ram as you load more programs. But if you’re an average web browser, 4 gigs is good enough. To just give you a idea at idle, it is using about 46% of the computers ram. The computer has one extra slot. Downside is that this computer only supports up to 8 gigs of ram DDR3 PC-12800 (you can’t fault Dell for the 8GB of max ram since the processor can only handle 8GB). Upside is that when you throw in that extra ram slot, it will give you extra performance due to the dual channel configuration. After removing all the bloatware and Windows finally settled in after dozens of updates this notebook starts up well under a minute. Considering a startup to be when the computer starts to idle.
    -by the way, uninstall the additional trial anti-virus. Windows 8 already has Defender and so that antivirus will just eat up your resources, I think it comes with Kaspersky or McAfee-

    The operating system,
    Now, I’m coming from Windows XP and 7, to be honest…Windows 8 is actually pretty cool. However, if you’re an old geezer who likes the traditional interface, Win 8 probably wouldn’t be a great option. Anyway, the big benefit of this laptop that allows you to enjoy Windows 8 without the use of a touch screen is the large track pad. This Dell has a 4 and 1/2 inch track pad and…

    A Lot of Features for the Money – But NOT a Roadwarrior, March 10, 2013
    By 

    This review is from: Dell Inspiron 15 i15RV-6190BLK 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black Matte with Textured Finish) (Personal Computers)

    I purchased this computer to use just with my Samsung Smart TV – (because the television internet interface is just so slow in performance) Please keep this in mind when looking at my four star rating and review comments.

    I will get the “not so good” stuff out of the way first. The “fit and finish” of the computer overall is pretty good, not great but not poor. The keyboard platform piece appears to sit down into the bottom case with a VERY noticeable lip edge that is a bit sharp. As the wrist rest space when using the keyboard is really large (a plus) the edge is not right on the wrist area and so far has not been a problem; I later just stood the computer on edge with the screen hinged open and used an emery board to smooth the edge.

    I wish the screen had a indent or latch to use in the middle, the lid closes nice and tight, but without having something to grab onto the inclination is to just use one corner of the lid/screen to open it up, as the spring holding the lid closed is tight and the screen is so large I am sure it would be just a matter of time before the case or screen itself is damaged. I definitely recommend using a two handed approach when opening up for use.

    OK, that was all I have found so far that I consider a weakness of the computer. I purchased this computer to sit on the cabinet with my television so I could use it on the internet, and for Skype. I do not think I would toss this into a computer bag and cart it around for use as it is not built to take a lot of bumps.

    I wanted a computer with Bluetooth so I could pair the existing television keyboard with mousepad to it and save the expense of purchasing a wireless set – this computer has this. I have sense found that paring my phone to the computer when using Skype allows me to send files to the computer and then out to who ever I am online with, or just to move pictures without having to drag out the USB cable and connect them together. Bluetooth use and setup, including paring of devices with the computer and Windows 8 is a Snap.

    A note about Windows 8 – it really is meant to be used with a touch screen, this computer does NOT have a touch screen, that is not a fault of the computer but the OS I decided to use. This may be something you want to consider if you purchase ANY system that uses Windows 8 and does not have a touch screen.

    The computer has a built in camera and microphone, and I find both are just superb for both close up and distance use, I sit about 12 feet back from where the computer is when using the camera and microphone with Skype and the people I talk to say the picture and audio is very good.

    The Wi-Fi interface can be controlled from within Windows 8, or from the keyboard, long gone is the switch on side of the computer itself. The indicator is a soft white light (as are all of the indicators) on the lower left edge of the computer, a plus I think as they are not always shining into your eyes.

    The power on/off switch is in the upper left corner, it is not backlit (hence it does not shine into your eyes either) but has it’s own indicator in the four light cluster in the lower left.

    The computer has a 500GB hard drive, a step up from the 320GB capacity of others in this class of computer. The processor is only 1.8Ghz, but this also means you , using less battery and less heat is generated. I find that using the laptop, actually on my lap, is not uncomfortable from any heat generation. There is a max memory capacity of 8GB, it comes with 4GB. If you are planning on power gaming or CAD creation then consider a memory upgrade up front or go with a different computer that supports greater capacity.

    The graphics engine is built in, and is pretty good, full motion video looks great and so far I have not found any problems in quality. The built in speakers for sound…well that could be better in my opinion but when I use headphones or external speakers it really shines, and as such I am not taking points of for this.

    Plenty of USB connectors (three on the left, one on the right) and an HDMI output (left side) – this is the only output for video and is more and more the standard, but if you need some other type of video in or out this would be a limitation.

    The DVD is read / write, I used it for creating my recovery disks, I could use a USB as well but wanted to test the DVD. It is what it is, not a lot of frills software comes with the unit, but so far I find no lag or artifacts in using it for sound or video.

    With all the features this computer has, and being at a price point in the near $400 range it did all I wanted it to do without having to spend several hundred more for the same features and things I would not be using.

    For a light use, on the desk type of situation I would recommend this – keeping in mind the OS and lack of touch screen. I am…

    This review is from: Dell Inspiron 15 i15RV-6190BLK 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black Matte with Textured Finish) (Personal Computers)

    First of all, I bought this at best buy,paid 329.98 with tax added. It is very thin for a budget laptop. Yes its made out of the same hard crappy plastic all american car interiors had a few years back, yes it doesn’t have the fastest processor, and can get dirty but you have to remember that you’re not paying much.

    With that out the way, its a pretty awesome laptop. Using the blue tooth, I can hook up my phone to the laptop and play music from my phone using the speakers on my laptop, no cables necessary. I can be in another room and start playing music on my laptop. It has two usb 3.0 ports so putting music/videos into my phone is fast. While it doesnt have the most powerful processor it’s not slow. Windows8 is made to run smooth on even budget laptop (though it might get sluggish from time to time for the most part its really fast.

    Using the built in HDMI port I connected the laptop to my 55inch 1080p hd tv and using an app called WIFI Mouse HD, i could use my phone as a mouse and keyboard on a 55in tv. The fan is super quiet as well.

    The Laptop comes with something called WAVES MAXXAUDIO which is supposed to make movies and games and music sound “extra sweet” what it really does is make the sound reach further away but makes the sound sound tinny. Not really that great. Battery isn’t bad nor good. The Web Camera is also not good nor bad,

    Overall, this is the best laptop to buy for the price. I recommend you buy it Best buy ans save yourself 100$.
