Dell Studio 1537 Green Laptop Review

In this colored laptop review we look at the green Dell Studio 1537 which is powered by the 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 processor. This particular processor is of the Intel Centrino 2 platform family of mobile processors.



Basically the Centrino is a highly specialized CPU designed specifically for providing both a powerful computing experience, and extending the battery charge life of a laptop computer. These work in conjunction with the operating system such as XP, Vista and Windows 7 for example, giving the user a great deal of control over things such as power consumption at given times ultimately reducing heat and power consumption.

The Dell Studio 15 Series colored laptops come in several color choices including blue, red, pink, green, purple, and orange. Standard size is the 15 inch HD wide screen display offering a very realistic High Def video experience.

A lot of users today specifically seek out portable computers with High Def capabilities, and HDMI ports as well. This is a great way to power everything from external LCD monitors to huge plasma TVs with your laptop while maintaining the high quality HD signal.

The green Dell Studio 1537 used for this laptop review has an impressive 4GB of DDR2 memory installed, which is the maximum this model will take, and is fully capable of playing high level games as well as watching DVD movies on pure battery power. We hooked up the laptop to a home theater system (nice audio and a plasma TV via the laptops HDMI connector), and were impressed with the overall performance of this mid-level laptop. We found that the battery life is greatly improved and highly recommend the 9-cell instead of the 6-cell battery.

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition SP1 is the fully loaded operating system which is installed on the 250 GB SATA hard drive. This is a decent amount of storage space for nearly any laptop user these days with three USB ports for external drives if additional storage space needed.


The video is ultimately powered by the Mobility ATI Radeon HD 3450 graphics processor. As noted above, our review laptop also had the 9-cell 85WHr Li-Ion battery which is the better choice for extended charge life. You may be disappointed with the 6-cell if you need to use your laptop away from and electrical outlet for extended periods of time.

Additional features of the Dell Studio 1537 green colored laptop include a standard integrated Gigabit Ethernet port (10 times faster than 10/100 Ethernet), 4-pin IEEE 1394 port, Infra Red port, HDMI connector, 3 USB 2.0 ports, USB/eSATA port, VGA port, and an ExpressCard slot.

Wi-Fi options for the Studio 15 series include the Dell wireless 1397 802.11b/g half mini card and the Intel Wi-Fi Link 5100 802.11 a/g/n half mini card. The wireless 802.11n offers super fast connection speeds at even greater distances than its predecessors. Wireless 802.11n offers significant improvements in overall throughput, and you will definitely notice a tremendous increase in the speed of your wireless network which can easily exceed 100Mbps.
