Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

With efficient processing, generous storage and fantastic media delivery, the Dell Inspiron 15R-5521 15.6” Touchscreen Laptop is the perfect everyday laptop for any performance conscious user.

Designed for touch

The 15R-5521 features a multi-touch screen that’s perfect for navigating Windows 8, playing games and drawing directly onto the screen.

Simply touch a programme tile to open it and move around using taps, swipes and pinches. It only takes a moment to pick up and is already second nature if you use a smartphone or tablet.

The home screen is built around Live Tiles. These programme icons display real time information from all your favourite apps including social networking, emails, news and sports directly on the home screen. You don’t even have to open the programme to receive important info and notifications.

Windows 8 is Cloud ready, letting you choose to back up your information online. Not only is this a good idea for preserving important files, photos and documents, it allows you to access them from any online Windows 8 device. Simply log in using an email address to access all your documents and information, organised just how you left them.

Efficient processing

The 15R-5521 is powered by an intelligent Intel® Core™ i5-3337U processor that runs at an energy efficient everyday clock speed of 1.8 GHz. However, during demanding tasks or when your work flow increases, it uses TurboBoost technology to accelerate its processing speed to an impressive 2.7 GHz.

At this speed the i5-3337U easily dispatches most demanding tasks, making the 15R-5521 suitable for running specialist creative, editing and design software.

Memory and multitasking

Multi-tasking and taxing processes are helped significantly by a generous 8 GB of DDR3 RAM. So whether you need to reference multiple work documents at once or are working on a single, large creative project, you can rely on the 15R-5521 to work as fast as you do.

File storage is provided by a huge 1 TB hard drive. Capable of securing over a quarter of a million songs, there’s bound to be enough space for your all your programs, documents and media.

Unlike a number of current computers, the 15R-5521 features a DVD reader and writer, making installing your favourite programmes simple.

Making the most of your media

Whether you love watching films, editing photos or simply appreciate a well presented desktop, the 15R-5521 won’t let you down thanks to the WLED screen. WLED delivers bright, vivid colours while maintaining low power consumption and is ideal for enjoying your favourite digital content while on the move.

Waves MaxxAudio®4 processing ensures your media sounds as good as it looks too. With improved sound clarity and a completely adjustable sound equalizer, you can enjoy your media and music as intended.

Working without wires

Built-in WiFi connectivity provides easy access to your wireless network while integrated Bluetooth allows a local, cable-free connection to a wealth of Bluetooth devices ranging from speakers and smartphones to mice and graphics tablets.

Plus, a useful six hour battery life delivers entirely unrestricted computing for longer.

Convenient connections

Backing up your projects and documents has never been faster thanks to USB 3.0 compatibility. With a quicker transfer rate than USB 2.0, it makes light work of copying even the largest files to external storage.

Using an external monitor is simple too with the HDMI port. Simply connect a HDMI cable between the laptop and TV, monitor, projector or any other HDMI compatible screen to view your programs, media and documents in full high definition.

Experience the benefits of modern computing technology with the well-appointed Dell Inspiron 15R-5521 15.6” Touchscreen Laptop.
