The Inspiron 15's sleek new design is 21% thinner than its previous model, but it's still got room for loads of power and performance. An Intel Core i3 processor and 4GB of memory speed you through all your everyday tasks, while a 15.6-inch (396.24-millimeter) display provides a roomy canvas to watch everything come to life.
There are great entertainment features here, too. A built-in DVD drive lets you watch your favorite movies wherever you go, while an HDMI port can transfer the picture to your HDTV for big-screen excitement. And with studio-quality Waves MaxxAudio, you get a complete audio processing suite for total control over your laptop's sound.
Store volumes of songs, photos, documents, and more on the roomy 500GB hard drive. It's got space for tens of thousands of digital files.
Burn files, install software, and watch your favorite movies with the tray-loading DVD drive.
Fourth-generation Intel Core i3 processor delivers faster system performance, uses less power, and enables sharper graphics.
Connect MP3 players, cameras, external drives, and more using two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, HDMI, and RJ45 Ethernet ports.
Inspiron laptops can survive short-term heat conditions up to 149°F (65°C). Their hinges are still tight after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times. And commonly used keys have been tested up to 10 million keystrokes.
