Budget laptop with smart features
Display and Build
The Dell Inspiron 15 3541 (3541E14500iB1) sports a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display which poses a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels and offers visuals with greater amount of brightness thanks to TrueLife technology. The all black outfit carries a simplistic design and is good to be carried around. It has a thickness of 25.6 mm and a weight of 2.4 kg.
CPU and OS
For driving its processes, the machine depends on a 1.8GHz AMD Dual Core E1 6010 processor working in combination with a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM. The RAM's capacity can be further expanded up to 8GB through the 2 unused DIMM slots. It manages rich videos and games with the integrated AMD Radeon R2 graphics unit. It runs on 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS which is a huge plus point of this budget friendly machine.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Dell Inspiron 15 3541 (3541E14500iB1) flaunts a 720p webcam which handles high resolution video calls smoothly. The 500GB SATA hard disk offers plenty of space for storing numerous files and folders. The presence of Tray load DVD RW drive in this price range is quite surprising and can be used for exchanging data via disks. Powered by Waves MaxxAudio, the stereo speakers deliver quality music.
Battery and Connectivity
To run the show for a fair period of time, the Dell Inspiron 15 3541 (3541E14500iB1) houses a 4 cell Li-ion battery. Connectivity features include Ethernet port, WLAN, HDMI out, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 slot, Bluetooth v4.0 and digital media reader.
Despite being available at a reasonable price, the Dell Inspiron 15 3541 (3541E14500iB1) packs a host of powerful features hardly expected. Such features include Windows 8.1 OS, standard 4GB RAM, slim tray load drive and USB 3.0 slot. However, the manufacturer has skipped a good processor to keep its price under control.
