Performance speed, memory, and hard drive space are all notable facets when it comes to shopping for a new laptop. However, we’d be lying if we said style wasn’t a contending factor in the decision. Although Dell might not be as notorious for aesthetic design as other benchmark manufacturers — we’re looking at you, Apple — the Inspiron 15 i5547-3751sLV does offer a welcome change from the norm. Constructed with brushed aluminum materials, the Inspiron 15 sports all the necessary specifications for a reliable laptop for under $1,000.
It’s packed with a fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor at 1.70GHz and a 1TB hard drive, not to mention a speedy 6GB of DDR3L memory. The Inspiron also runs Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8.1, and is equipped with a 15.6-inch touchscreen displaying with 1366 x 768-pixel resolution. A backlit keyboard featuring a 10-key number pad even makes typing effortless. Now through Sept. 3, you can save $120 off the initial list price of the Dell Inspiron 15 i5547-3751sLV Laptop through discount retailer NeweggFlash, with bundled free shipping and a one-year warranty. There are a lot of factors to keep in mind when comparing laptops, but make sure you at least like looking at whichever model you choose.
