A Slimmer new design
The redesigned Inspiron 15 starts at just over 1" thick - that's 21% thinner than the 2011 model - so you get all the performance that you need, with a little more room in your bag for the other things that matter.
Mega-tasking is the new multi-tasking
One thing at a time? No way. With powerful Intel Core i3 processor and Windows 8 apps for social media, news and more, you can turn around tasks in a flash, no matter where you are.
Stay powered up long enough to skip the in-flight film, polish your presentation and drift off to your favourite music. Opt for the 65WHr 6-cell battery to take it even further.
Watch it your way
Impressive visuals: The 15.6" HD WLED display with Truelife (1366x768) resolution looks great, even in poorly lit situations.
Built-in drive: Burn files, install software and watch your favourite films with the tray-loading DVD-RW.
Huge hard drive: Pack hours of TV shows, music and films on the Inspiron 15.
HD connectivity: Connect to an HDTV or HD monitor with an HDMI 1.4 port, for an even bigger home cinema experience.
More fun with touch
Windows 8 is designed especially for touch - the fluid new interface gives you the look and feel of a tablet, but with the powerful capabilities of a PC. Swipe and tap through your morning news. Zoom in and out of images using gesture. Anything that you do on the Inspiron 15 feels more fun with the 15.6" touchscreen.
Ports: Connect MP3 players, cameras, external drives and more using two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, HDMI 1.4 and RJ45 Ethernet ports.
Keyboard flexibility: Accountants rejoice. A 10-key numeric pad makes managing spreadsheets and balancing budgets a simple.
Media card reader: Can't find your camera cables? Just upload media files directly from your camera's card with the 8-in-1 media reader.
Designed for the real world - because that's where life happens
Turn up the heat: From locker rooms to locked cars, we test Inspiron laptops for survival in harsh short-term heat conditions of up to 65°C/149°F.
Everything hinges on it: We test Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure that they still feel tight, even after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times.
Keys to success: We test commonly used keys for 10 million keystrokes and touchpad buttons 1 million times with no failure. So go ahead, finish your novel.
Buttoned up: No matter what you set your power and multimedia buttons to do, we've tested them all to survive up to 40,000 pushes with no problems.
Twist and turn: Call us excessive, but after twisting every Inspiron laptop's base and lid 25,000 times, we can assure you that the parts inside are well-protected.
Always a good fit: You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 750 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
