The Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop computer comes in a multitude of different colors such as pink, green, yellow, red, and Jet Black as in the case of this review.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Black

Under the hood of the Inspiron 1525 is the Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 processor which runs at 2.0GHz on an 800MHz FSB (Front Side Bus). This is combined with 3GB of DDR2 system memory and in our opinion is a good example of an affordable mid-level laptop computer. We were able to utilize the hardware combination and test some mid level games, watch DVD movies on battery power only and have several applications running while surfing the web without any hesitation from the system at all.

The Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition with an update to SP1 was the installed operating system, and the laptop used a 320GB SATA hard drive which meant that there was plenty of room for storing data such as movies, music, pictures, etc.

This model also sported the nicely sized wide screen LCD panel which is 15.4″ and which runs at a maximum resolution of 1280×800. The video in this model, along with several other laptop computers on the market today, is powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 for crystal clear graphics sufficient for the full enjoyment of movies and games.

Also included is the surprisingly decent sounding High Definition Audio 2.0 which sounds relatively good on laptop computers. Our Dell Inspiron 1525 review showed us that this mid-range laptop, offered with a choice of several colorful covers, is a decent multimedia portable computer good for more than just basic computing tasks.

The Dell Inspiron 1525 we reviewed came with a six cell battery with fairly typical charge life under normal and heavy usage, and the Dell wireless 1505 Wireless-N Mini-Card for reliable connectivity to Internet hot spots and other wireless networks. Overall for a mid-range colorful laptop, this model is both powerful and lightweight making it a good choice for those who travel yet need a bit more power from a multimedia focused design.
