I have the 15R equipped with a Pentium processor and it's a pretty nice laptop all-in-all. Dell loads it with bloatware, though, so I'd be weary of that. Only thing I don't like about it is that it is a finger print magnet.

Battery life I couldn't tell you much since I always have it plugged in.

The cooling is usually inaudible except when waking it up from sleep, in which case the fan will blast for a few seconds then die back down.

Thanks. I didn't know it's a fingerprint magnet. Is it like a metal coating or more of a plastic feel/?

On the inside, it's a glossy black plastic. The touch pad is a... I don't know what to say as to the feel of it. Can't exactly think of words right now...

I've had probably a dozen or two Inspiron 15's pass by the shop.
I wouldn't really call it a fingerprint magnet. While yes it does eventually hold fingerprints, it is somewhat resistive towards the oils in your fingers. It isn't too bad.

Thanks for the info. Asanatheist. I see you bought dell 2211h. I am considering selling 2209wa for a 16:9 screen. Looks like u2211h is a great choice .

It is indeed, you can check my review on my sig.
I recommend checking on tftcentral.co.uk's review however.
