Display and Build
The Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (3542345002RU) sports a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels and TrueLife technology which makes videos and games appear rich.

Under the hood, the laptop is equipped with a 1.7GHz Intel Core i3 processor from the 4th generation series and based on QM87 Express chipset. Assisting the CPU is a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which can be expanded up to 8GB. It runs on 64 bit Ubuntu OS which may appear as completely new for some people.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The device is furnished with a 720p webcam so that you don't face any hindrance in enjoying video calls. It meets the storage demands of the user with a 500GB SATA hard disk. It also features a Tray load DVD RW drive giving you the scope to stream games, software or files easily from disks.

Battery and Connectivity
Keeping the Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (3542345002RU) juiced up is a 4 cell Li-ion battery. On the connectivity front, we have digital media reader, HDMI out, WLAN, 2 USB 2.0 slots, Bluetooth v4.0, 1 USB 3.0 slot and WLAN.
