I have had this laptop for a little less than a year. I use this computer everyday for school. A couple problems have showed up. First of all, the casing is not very sturdy. I began to notice within a month that small impressions were showing up on the screen. In order to prevent further damage, I purchased a shell to go on while in the case. Also, the silver lining above the network cable slot is weak. A piece of this silver casing fell off. Also, the bottom part of the fan guard on the left side breaks within a weak of using it. Other than the casing issues, I like the laptop.
I need to now what the difference between this machine and the "Dell Inspiron 15-3521" if it was with same specs. , I mean are "Inspiron 15-5521 family" are better than "Inspiron 15-3521 family"? and why? thank you
Just bought this machine and i have a 3rd generation i5-3317U processor with 6-cell battery. I have been only surfing with WLAN and the battery drained after 2.33hrs... Your test suggests it should run for at least 7 hours. What am i doing wrong??

hi, the monitor color profile (ICC profiles) contains no parameters. I downloaded and applied to the color management of this laptop, it seems no different from the stock monitor. Do you have the proper file? thanks!
hello! I've received this laptop today and I'm feeling it has earthing problem, although it is looking weak but is this problem only with me? or is it common because of metallic body? I'm even feeling earthing in lid.
The golden mean. With its Inspiron 15R-5521, Dell shows a rather unusual combination of energy-saving ULV processor and dedicated middle class GPU. The efficient components do not only indicate a moderate energy demand, but also a high battery life. We have tested the top-class model with AMDs and brand-new Radeon HD 8730M.
