Display and Build

The Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (3442C4500iBU) packs a 14-inch HD LED backlit TrueLife display which imparts greater brightness and looks quite sharp with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is encased in a simply designed black coloured outfit which has a thickness of 25.4mm and a weight of 2.2kg. It has a full size spill resistant keyboard and standard touchpad.

Processor and OS

Doing the duty on the inside is a 1.4GHz Intel Celeron dual-core 2957U processor from the fourth generation and based on QM87 Express chipset. To manage multiple tasks, it has a mere 2GB DDR3 RAM which is further expandable up to 8GB via the single DIMM slot. The integrated Intel HD GPU is capable of managing only simple games and movies. The Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (3442C4500iBU) ships with 64 bit Ubuntu OS.

Camera, Storage and Multimedia

The Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (3442C4500iBU) is armed with a webcam which cans shoot HD videos and manage high resolution video calls smartly. The 500GB SATA hard disk provides plenty of space for creating a library of files. You can also exchange data via disks with the Tray Load DVD RW Drive. Powered by Waves MaxxAudio 4, the stereo speakers provide crisp multimedia experience.

Battery and Connectivity

The notebook keeps the show running with a 4 cell Li-ion battery and can be connected through features like Ethernet port, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, HDMI out, digital media reader, two USB 2.0 slots, one USB 3.0 port and VGA port.

Verdict

The Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (3442C4500iBU) is an affordably priced laptop good for executing only basic computing needs. It lacks a good configuration or Windows platform which is acceptable in light of its price. The presence of Tray Load DVD Drive is quite surprising as laptops in this range generally lack one.
