Display and Design
 
The Dell Inspiron 15 3521 poses a HD WLED backlit display which plays media files with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels which looks sharp on a 15.6-inch panel. The 31.3mm thick chassis undoubtedly looks awkward but carries a soft matte black finish giving it a premium feel. It has been spotted with a standard touchpad and keyboard along with ample cooling vents.
 
CPU and OS
 
At the heart of the device, one can find a 3rd generation Intel Core i3 3217U processor with a clock speed of 1.8GHz and loaded on HM76 Express chipset. It is supported by the standard 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM which can again be expanded up to 8GB via the 2 unused memory slots. The Intel HD 4000 GPU prevents the device from causing any lags while handling highly demanding videos and games. It runs 64 bit Linux OS which may seem to be a bit complex for some first timers.
 
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
 
While the 1MP webcam guarantees good video calling experience from various angles, the digital microphone makes it even better by cancelling the unwanted background noises. A 500GB SATA hard disk provides the space for storing files. You can even utilize the DVD RW Drive having dual layer support for the same. The stereos speakers playing Waves MaxxAudio sound make it a good entertainment package as well.
 
Battery and Connectivity
 
The laptop has a 4-cell li-ion battery on board which delivers uninterrupted service for a mighty 5 hours. It scores quite well on the connectivity front with features like 2 USB 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth v4.0, WLAN, Ethernet, VGA port, HDMI v1.4 and 8-in-1 card reader.

Verdict

The Dell Inspiron 15 3521 is a good package at a decent price. While its decent configuration makes it powerful enough to handle simple tasks at ease, features like a fast DVD drive, 1MP webcam and good quality speakers certainly boost your experience.

    Overall: I am an engineer student and purchased one for my friend. Laptop is so cool and has very trendy and eye catchy look Processor works really great. Don't look at the clock speed. It is the latest technology from intel which is called ULV processor( Ultra low voltage processor ) . They are more power efficient and good at productivity. (all ultrabooks and macbook air has it, Also check the clock speed of them, even i7 has 1.8 GHz ) I mean think about it why intel bring the clock speed of p4 in this era it has increased numbers of cores and threades and this increase its performance . They are small in size and fast at work . Boot in windows 8 is amazingly fast ideal for daily use . Music , movies and internet. Gaming is decent. you can play low end games like CS and NFS most wanted easily. Webcam is HD so its great experience while chating. very light weight. Battery life is something i am big fan of. As mentioned above it has ULV processor, It consume very low power and hence gives the more battery life . While watching movies average battery died in 4:39 minutes and on normal office work ( MS office , internet ) it last long about 6:10 minute with low brightness and without any external device attached . . . They are also providing the one year accidental warranty which is great It is a quit decent laptop with extra ordinary features Looks are too cool. Textured finish make it very eye catchy Sound quality is awesome and its great while watching movies or listening music. Cons - It does not have dedicated GC. But in this price range it is good.

    Overall: Pros: Good battery life Good processing power Quick delivery from flipkart CONS: No support for Linux from Dell support. WIFI stops working after you apply the online updates from Ubuntu for the first time. After calling Dell, the Dell representative replied saying that they don't have expertise on Linux and you can install pirated Windows OS which they can support. Bad customer support experience from Dell. However, I was able to fix the issue after some googling on Ubuntu forums. Basically what needs to be done is to upgrade the kernel from 3.2.0-56-generic to 3.2.0-57-generic and do an online upgrade . Refer to link below for more help. http://askubuntu.com/questions/215498/upcoming-support-for-qualcomm-atheros-ar9565-wireless/389229#389229 Now the laptop works fantastically..
