Reasonable Product; You get what you pay for
02 Oct 2016 By Jvalant Sampat On

I always buy Dell desktops and laptops mostly because of their brilliant after sales service. No questions asked - they replace broken parts with 24-48 hours and frequently follow-up to ensure that your problem is resolved. Their products cost 10-20% more on account of this, but it is a price I am happy to pay after some bad brushes with Acer and Lenovo. My regular laptops are a Dell Vostro and a Dell Latitude. The Latitude is built like a tank but is over 5 years old now and the Vostro too seems to have better construction quality than this Inspiron. But the Inspiron is significantly lighter which is a good thing if you carry your laptop around. I would have liked a backlit keyboard and fingerprint reader but perhaps at this price point, it is too much to ask. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate and downloading the drivers from the Dell website was very simple. I also had to update the BIOS. The i3 processor with 4 GB RAM is more than sufficient for everyday computing. I am not used to this keyboard yet and prefer a conventional laptop keyboard layout. The arrow keys here are small and there is a number pad laid out on the right side. Personally, I find it useless. The touchpad is a new design and once again, I am still not used to it and hence prefer the regular touchpad buttons. Would I recommend the product? Sure. I still hope Dell launches their chromebooks in India soon. Those are the best to carry around.
