Hello friends,

I have researched a laptop that fits my expectations (I live in Brazil), and have found these two:

Dell Inspiron 15R Intel Core i7-4500U 3.0 GHz 8192 MB 1024 GB

Dell Inspiron 15 Intel Core i7-4510U 2.0 GHz 8192 MB 1024 GB


I will probably go for the i7-4510U one, since the price difference is minimum and there is a Ghz increase, but i would like to hear from you about the brand and technical specifications. Are they good?

I do not intend to play on it. Just heavy and daily office work.

Thanks in advance!

Always remember computers are just tools, you just need to find the right tool to for the right jobs you have need for the tool to be used on; it normally (past decade) doesn't matter who makes / what model computer it is. The people whom normally post this were BURNED when they went VISTA, and the many things done wrong by hardware makers (selling 'Vista compatible' systems that couldn't support VISTA as advertised) and by Microsoft (CEO Balmer admitted Vista was a 'MISTAKE').

That said, what IS the "heavy office work"? We talking CAD wiring blueprints of skyscrapers? 1000x1000 Excel Spreadsheets? Or just keeping 10 different documents open with a dozen 'Internet' tabe open in Chrome?

Unless your doing something being deeply calculative (CAD, Excel, etc.) you will NOT ever need a i7, but say your work IS manipulating Multimedia sources (video clips, images and sounds) then while you may not NEED a 'gamers card' you would still need something as a i7 to help with coding and recoding video, sound, etc.

Honestly any simple i5 based system (even a laptop) is 'normal' for business, and is the 'highest' you will need if you multitask alot, most use a i3 based for the 'lower workers' whom just do all the 'office paperwork', and is fine enough. A "off the shelf" system for a SMB (small medium business) or Self Employed person can be had for as little at $249US.
