Dell Inspiron 1501 Review

There are several similar configurations of not only the Inspiron 1501 but in the entire Dell Inspiron line of used laptops. Typically the selection is representative of this variety so not all of these will be laptops for $300 as some will be slightly less and others will be more. The standard feature set provides the fundamental basics and as more features are included the price tends to edge upwards. Even the most basic Dell Inspiron laptops were initially geared toward the home user looking to enjoy reliable entertainment as well as typical everyday computing tasks.

Examples of the typical feature sets of the Inspiron 1501 are the 1.8GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor along with 1GB to 2GB of DDR2 Dual-Channel system memory. The Athlon has long been a highly respected processor in both laptops as well as desktops and AMD was heavily influential in the development of the 64-bit processors.

Hard drive sizes of these used laptops are typically in the 120GB range and run either XP or Vista as the operating system. Screen size is a standard 15.4 inch widescreen perfect for watching DVD movies on. We typically see the ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 with 256MB of video memory which still provides some highly responsive video quality especially on a laptop for 300 dollars these days. Having serviced nearly every variety of Inspiron model made over many years we always appreciate the Dell Inspiron laptops for their smart designs almost as if they had the technician in mind. This is because so many other makes and models can be extremely difficult to work on or dismantle when need be. This is likely the case with any product which needs service as some are easier to work with than others.

The 24x CD-RW DVD combination drive is pretty much standard fare on the Dell Inspiron 1501 as well as multiple USB ports and SD/SDIO/MMC card slots making the transfer of data between a variety of various devices a breeze. Find bargains on this classic Dell including used and refurbished laptops.
