Modern materials, sleek exterior: The Inspiron 15 (Intel) is up to 21% thinner and 19% lighter than previous models*, and more beautiful than ever before. The elegant brushed aluminum design is poised to impress at the coffee shop, airport or wherever you’re headed next. Plus, it stays cool to the touch after hours of use.
Stay unplugged longer: Hit the road without worry. Great battery life, up to 7 hours, means you can go longer in between charges*.
Studio-quality sound: Whether you’re mixing, streaming or chatting, Waves MaxxAudio® delivers lower lows, higher highs and outstanding audio performance.
Your every tap, swipe and scroll is more responsive and accurate with a 10-finger capacitive touch screen. Capacitive touch seems more natural and fluid than optical touch because capacitive sensors are right under the screen, compared to optical touch which uses cameras in the bezel of the laptop. Have more fun with Windows 8.1, swipe through your photo album faster and unleash your creativity with capacitive touch.
Breeze through spreadsheets with a 10-key number pad and zoom, point and scroll through content quickly with the large touchpad. Keep going — even in the dark — when you upgrade to a backlit keyboard for better typing accuracy in low light.
Strong, fast signal
Improved wireless performance over previous models delivers a stronger WiFi connection. The newest 802.11ac technology option connects at blazingly fast WiFi speeds across an extended range, so you can roam free and still enjoy an impressive wireless experience.
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°C/149°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 an 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 30 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
