The Dell Inspiron i1545 uses a standard six-cell battery and turned in an average 2 hours 54 minutes on CNET Labs' demanding video playback battery drain test. Although it uses a slightly smaller six-cell battery (46Whr to 48Whr), the Asus K60I lasted 31 minutes longer than the Dell on our battery drain test. We attribute the difference to the Asus K60I's energy-efficient LED-backlit display.

Dell backs the Inspiron i1545-4266IBU with a standard one-year parts and labor warranty. Calls to tech support are toll-free and available 24-7. Dell's support pages contain an extensive knowledge base, user manuals, and driver downloads.
