Not happy with body structure - unaccpetable squeaks with DELL,
This review is from: Dell Inspiron i15N-4092BK 15-Inch Laptop (2.5 GHz Intel Core i5-2450M Processor, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium) Black [Discontinued By Manufacturer] (Personal Computers)
Bought instead the 15R with 6GB mem and 1T hard drive for $499.99. This one also has the same body structure. Notice the plastic around the keyboard squeaks and has hollow feeling. This is unacceptable for this price. I returned mine and also at the store noticed that the ones at display do have the same problem. I then search online and found this:
Build quality is generally pretty strong for a mostly plastic notebook, but you'll notice some minor flexing in the plastics if you firmly squeeze the notebook in your hands or press hard on the keyboard while typing. The main chassis, while reasonably strong, has a "hollow" feeling which makes you think there is some unused space inside this black box.
Please note that the body construction is the same in 15N
