The deal: Dell Inspiron 15R U560802au - powerful and affordable mid-range allrounder - $719.10
The 15.6in Dell Inspiron 15R U560802au is a mid-range allrounder that’s very affordable for $719.10 at JB Hi-Fi until Sunday. It has a fast processor along with a reasonable mid-range graphics card, ensuring that it can handle a wide variety of programs well. It's built entirely from plastic but the build quality is respectable. So, while not exactly targeted at the premium market, the 15R is a decently put-together notebook for the price.
The 15R has a 2nd Gen Intel Core i5-2430M (2.4GHz), a mid-range processor that will have no problems with productivity applications and running the most intensive software. It can burst up to 3GHz using Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology if a particularly demanding program is running.
The 15R has a dedicated graphics card called the NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M. It’s a mid-range card that can handle modern games at medium settings without any difficulties.
The 15R has 4GB of RAM, which is enough to run several programs at once smoothly.
The 15R has a 640GB hard disk drive, which is large enough for important files along with a very small media library.
The 15R has a 15.6in (1,366 x 768 resolution) glossy screen.
The 15R is heftier than most notebooks, weighing in at 2.65kg and measuring 35.2mm thick. Although it can be moved around, a decent notebook backpack should be considered.
