Manage daily tasks with the affordable Inspiron 15 featuring a 15.6" screen in a design that's 21 percent thinner than previous generations, with up to 3rd Gen Intel Core processors and a 10-key number pad.
Smart performance in a slimmer design - The Inspiron 15 features 3rd Gen Intel Core processors in a sleek design that's 21 percent thinner than the 2011 model. So you get all the performance you need, with a little more room in your bag for the other things that matter.
Megatasking is the new multitasking - One thing at a time? No way. With powerful Intel Core processors and Windows 8 apps for social media, news and more, you can turn around tasks in a flash, no matter where you are.
Watch it your way - Pack hours of TV shows on the Inspiron 15's spacious hard drive or pop a movie in the DVD-RW drive. Either way, you'll get lost in the 15.6" HD Truelife display. At home, connect to an HDMI-capable TV or monitor for an even bigger view.
Optional touch functionality - Experience hands-on interactivity with optional touch functionality. The things you do with a mouse and keyboard are more intuitive with touch. Access your email and favorite websites, view and edit your media, and switch between apps, all with the touch of your fingers on the screen.
Slim and stylish - Starting at just over 1" thin, Inspiron 15 slips easily into a travel bag when you're on the move. Its textured lid and palm rest help you get a grip on things.
Essential features - Foster your creative side or crunch the numbers. The choice is yours with a 10-key number pad, 8-in-1 media card reader, USB 3.0 ports and more.
Charge ahead - Stay powered up long enough to skip the in-flight movie, polish your presentation and drift off to your favorite music. Opt for the 65WHr 6-cell battery to take it even further.
Designed for the real world - because that's where life happens. - We want you to love your new PC for years to come. That's why we test every Inspiron laptop for reliability not just in the places where you expect it, but for the open road ahead.
- 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 degrees C/149 degrees F.
- Everything hinges on it: We test Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure 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 touch pad 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 more than 25,000 times, we can assure you 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.
