Display and Build

The Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (354254500iSU) arrives with a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display with TrueLife technology and a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The soft silver colored lid with the black keyboard deck won't disappoint those who love a professional outlook. It has a modest thickness of 25.6 mm and a weight of 2.4 kg.

CPU and OS

At the heart of the laptop there is a 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 processor built on QM87 Express chipset and belonging to the 4th generation. To assist the CPU in executing multiple tasks smoothly, there is a 4GB DDR3 RAM which can be further expanded up to 8GB through 2 DIMM slots. For managing rich graphics, the machine depends on Intel HD 4400 GPU. It runs on 64 bit Ubuntu OS which may not appear familiar for everybody.

Camera, Storage and Multimedia

The presence of HD webcam allows the laptop to manage high resolution video calls without any hassle. The Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (354254500iSU) meets the storage demands of the user with a 500GB SATA hard disk.

With the tray load DVD RW drive, you can store important files on disks. The dual stereo speakers powered by Waves MaxxAudio make sure that you have rich multimedia experience. The full size keyboard is spill resistant and allows you to work peacefully.

Battery and Connectivity

To ensure continuous service, the Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (354254500iSU) uses the fuel from a 4 cell Li-ion battery. Moving to the connectivity features, we have Bluetooth v4.0, Ethernet port, WLAN, 2 USB 2.0 slots, 1 USB 3.0 port, HDMI out and digital media reader.


In case you are looking for a standard laptop that can handle business centric tasks smoothly and doesn't cost much, the Dell Inspiron 15 3542 (354254500iSU) can be a worthy option. Features like HD webcam, dual speakers, spill resistant keyboard and Tray load drive further boost its value. It lacks a good software platform though.

    Overall: I bought the Ubuntu 12.04 version about 6 months ago.

    The hardware is clunky and heavy. Finish is not great. Trackpad / mousepad are difficult and non-intuitive to use.

    The factory installed Ubuntu image is custom built. The image is not available to general public. No installation CD ships with the product. If anything goes wrong and you have to reinstall the OS (as I had to do), the 12.04 image from Ubuntu does not work off the bat. It is a nightmare to install almost anything. Skype will not work on this system. You have to struggle to install Chrome browser.

    Not recommended for anyone other than hardcore hobbyists (or sadists). Certainly not recommended for anyone (say non-techy, or people who are just getting into computers) who may be a casual user.
