The Dell Inspiron 15 3521 is a great package for business and that too at an attractive price. It carries a powerful Intel Core i5 processor and standard RAM but doesn't impress with its gaming efficiency. On the positive side, it features a HD webcam , 750GB HDD, Tray load DVD, Windows 8 OS and 2 high speed USB ports.
Display and Design
The Dell Inspiron 15 3521 sports a standard 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display offering comfortable viewing experience with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It is encased in a textured finished chassis which provides better gripping while being resistant to scratches and fingerprints. The outfit has a thickness of 31.3 mm and a weight of 2.3 kg.
Processor and OS
Doing the duty on the inside of the Dell Inspiron 15 3521 is a 1.8GHz Intel Core i5 processor belonging to the 3rd generation and sitting on HM76 Express chipset. It draws support from a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM that can be expanded up to 8GB via 2 user accessible slots. The integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU is capable of managing only simple videos and games. It runs on 64 bit Windows 8 OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Dell Inspiron 15 3521 flaunts a 1MP webcam coupled with a digital microphone for crystal clear and noise free video calls. The 750GB SATA HDD offers plenty of space for storing all kinds of files. The Tray Load DVD RW Drive enables you to transfer files through disks and doesnÂt contribute to the deviceÂs thickness. Powered by Waves MaxxAudio 4.0, the stereo speakers guarantee crisp audio quality.
