Great Overall Value and Performance
We just purchased a new Inspiron15 -3000 Touch Screen with Windows 8.1 Having to get used to a newer OS has its minor challenges, but is made easier with such a great computer. Very bright LCD screen, plenty of power in the I3 and space for years with a 500GB hard drive. We had been Dell and Latitude users for years and even though our previous Dell has an I5 processor, we honestly do not realize any performance downgrade with this I3. This is a great overall value and well worth the investment for a great all around laptop.

Not Pleased
I have bought all three of my laptops from Del, after this one I am not sure if I will remain a customer. I purchased this computer about two months ago as a replacement for an older Inspiron. I am not pleased with this product. I am a Technical Writer and it is uncomfortable to work on for extended periods. The textured material was a mistake; the surface needs to be smoother and more comfortable for individuals who work on long-term projects. The look is subpar; I prefer the more mature designs of past products. If the keyboard were backlit, it would make this product a bit more tolerable.

Excellent System at MOST Favorable Pricing

Dell had my DELL Inspiron 15, 15.6 HD Touch Screen, 4th Gen i3 processor, 4G memory 500GB HD, Win 8.1, DVD, shipped the same day I ordered via UPS with tracking info! I received the unit today, December 15, 2014. I followed the instructions and within 15 minutes it was completely operable. It connected to our ATT U-Verse wireless as soon as I put in our password. I did notice the signal strength week at 3 bars instead of normal 4 and 5 I am used to. It maybe a sign of a weak internal Wi-Fi board. I am familiar with Win 7 and Win 8.1 has similar characteristics and had no problem. I had to activate McAfee and MS Office, which I purchased in my order and all installed. I have DSL internet speed as apposed to cable, but this i3 processor speed does very well surfing the internet. There were 65 Windows updates that took sometime to download and all went well. *You have to have patience and wait for things to complete loading, Next, I located the Control Panel and put that Icon on my desk top. From within the Control Panel, I located the "Disk Clean Up" and "Defragmenting" and put those Icons on my desktop for future use and reminders. I learned 20 years ago, from our company IT person, how important the Disk Clean Up and Defragmenting are to optimizing the Hard Drive in making the system run efficiently. Long story short, these 2 things may initially take an hour+ in processing time, but be patient as you will have a smoother and faster Hard Drive retrieving and processing information. In other wards, it cleans up things and I would recommend doing these 2 things periodically and will do it in a lot less time. The Touch Screen is most responsive as is the touchpad with NO issues in short time of using. In my 2 hours in between the 6 hours of being on it, without going into more details, this system is just perfect for me! Thank you DELL! Oh, I do have the first year free for Dell's Tech/phone support + 2 more years I paid.....just in case. :) Mainly knowing there will be a new Windows OS coming out soon, that is the talk. I might want to upgrade w/o any hitches??? The only thing left is to transfer everything from my non PC computer to this new DELL PC. :) I am back to MS WIN, which I like more!

A good, cost-effective option for college students.

I ended up buying this laptop for graduation in preparation for college this fall. I had some minor issues when I first bought it, but those were either a fault of my own or a fault not related to this computer. For example, I was having issues staying connected to my home Wi-Fi network. You could imagine my frustration when the internet would randomly cut out or indicate "Limited" in the system icon tray. However, I then discovered that my wireless router was set up to assign specific IP addresses to each device that connects to my network. After manually entering IP, Subnet, Gateway, and DNS server information, I have not had any connectivity issues since. Regarding Windows 8 - I think people don't like the operating system because they don't want to put the time into actually learning the ins and outs of how it works. I definitely recommend going to Microsoft's website and doing some of the "Welcome to Windows 8: Tips and Tricks" exercises they show you in their videos. They may seem elementary and somewhat dumb, but you'd be surprised how much easier it is to navigate Windows 8 once you've learned it. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND BUYING 8 GB OF RAM. The Inspiron 15 3542 only has one memory slot, so you're either going to get 4 GB or 8GB; you can't get 6 GB for this model at this time. I chose not to get the touch screen (didn't really see a need for it) but you'd be surprised how limited PC speeds are on only 4 GB of RAM. I tried to install a Nintendo DS emulator to play some of my favorite games... No dice. It lagged so much, it was impossible to play it. 8 GB of RAM may seem unnecessary, but I promise you it is worth the money. One last thing - the battery life isn't that great. I recommend upgrading your battery during purchase, too. I'm kicking myself for not doing it. In summary: 1) Take the time to learn Windows 8. 2) Buy the 8 GB of RAM when you buy the computer. 3) Enjoy your computer!

Great for the price

This is my first laptop, I have had two Dell desk tops, still use one. The i3 processor works well but I would rather have an i5. I don't care for the mouse pad so I use a small wireless mouse. I bought this for my wife so she wouldn't have to go down the stairs to my basement office. It has plenty of features and works well for her. Overall I am very pleased with it.

Fair Computer

I find the keyboard to be stiff and backlighting would be good. You have to hit each key on top and firm for it to work, especially the space key. The computer has locked up on me several times and I have to turn it off and restart. When this happens nothing works except for the cursor. Seems slow for the system included, I know it is not a game computer, but I hoped for a little faster computer. The touch screen is great, the first one I have ever used. Wish it had some lights on top to show a hard drive working.

Okay for a bargain laptop

The last time I purchased a laptop was from Dell back in 2002 and that laptop is still running pretty good for an older laptop. I've purchased a few PC's and other devices from Dell since then and have always loved the quality of my Dell products which is why I keep returning here. With this new laptop, the performance is up to expectations. I got the 8 GB version and so far I've been able to run everything I want to and multi-task effectively. The case? Overall the case itself seems decent. But, the touchpad ruins the show. The touchpad is really awful...I wish I could remove the touchpad from my old laptop from 2002 and put it on this one. It's very noisy, sounds like it's not "tight", and it's just difficult to use. I worry about that touchpad surviving through the years. I've only had it a few days and the right-click stopped working at one point. I restored it by rebooting the laptop, but still...It's brand new, why?? Overall, I'd say it's workable if you are looking for more performance for a lower price (like I was). Get a mouse and disable the horrible touch-pad. Finally, I got the non-touch screen version...Once again, trying to save some dollars, didn't think I'd really care about it...But, I'd recommend upgrading to touch screen since it has Windows 8.1 and the touchpad is inferior. I've always recommended Dell to my friends, but I don't think I could recommend this one strictly because of the touch pad.

Inspiron 3000

This is probably the worst computer I have owned and I have owned Dells in the past. The right/left click buttons are part of the touch pad so if your thumb moves even slightly, crazy things happen such as deleting whole phrases from text or losing the pointer altogether. The case is uncomfortable. The edges of the case are sharp and dig into my wrists. The touch pad is farther from the keyboard than is normal making it hard to use when hands are on the keys. This design needs to be tossed out.

Hello Mari01, Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on the Inspiron 15 laptop. We are currently working on a touchpad interface update which will allow the user to set controls and parameters for the built in touch pad buttons. I will post a link to this review as soon as it is available. We were concerned about your comments regarding sharp edges on the system. We had this system evaluated and confirmed that it conforms to all industry standards. However, we will ensure that your feedback is considered for our next generation products. Thank you for choosing Dell products. JGB Dell | Voice of the Customer Team

Quiirks

I will wriite this review without making corrections. This computer was admittedly a good price, but once I began using iit, I notiiced that the keyboard double-types letters. The problem is mostly with the letter 'i', but it happenns with other letters, too. I thought, at fiirst, that perhaps I was heavy-handed from typing on my previous keyboard, but no matter how lightly I type, I get mmany typos. Unfortunately, I waiited for a month to call and now my warranty has evidently expired. If you have a solution for this problem,, please let me know, because it has takken all the fun out of computing. Also, occasionnally, when I hiit a letter it doesn't type at all. Obviously, this keyboard has problems. Another issue I have is with the giant black pop-up menu that appears on the right side of the screenn, along with the giant time in the loweer left-hand corner. These pop-up for no apparent reasoon and cause mmy cursor to stop dead in its trackks. Very frustrating. MMost likely this is a MMicrosoft problem, I supposee. I was very exciited to get this computer because my other laptop is a Dell that I've had for nnearly nine years and with which I've had very few problems until recently. Sinnce I think it iis beginning to die, I thought I would replace it with another Dell. II was hoping this computer would be as reliable, but I'm afraiid that is not the case. I cannot in good conscience recommend this computer to anyone. I'm very diisappointed. I feel I've wasted my money and I'm not sure what to do about it. Being retired, my expendable income is very limited and I've wasted some of my limiteed funds on a new Dell that is not nearly as dependable as my old Dell.

Touchpad and keyboard are terrible

The touchpad is the worst, virtually non-usable. The cursor seams to float around aimlessly regardless of how I set the sensitivity. But the worse is there are no separate buttons for left/right mouseclick. You have to click the lower corners of the touchpad, and it is so bad at responding that you just keep clicking, then the cursor wanders off again, and by the time so succeed in actually getting it to respond to a click you've wound up clicking on something you didn't intend to. The keyboard has a mushy feel to it, and they've messed up by putting the page up, page down, home and end keys in the top right corner of the keyboard, which is a long and terrible reach. Also the lower-corner of the laptop digs into my left wrist unless I hold my wrist up, which is tiring.

1. Yes, this product has a camera.
by CommunityAnswer
2. Although there are 3000 series Dell Inspirons with cameras, and some with touch screens, more RAM, more HD space etc. Read the fine print of this 3542, this isn't a touch screen, nor does it have a built in camera. You can see the specifications at Dell's website, by searching for: "inspiron-15-3542-laptop", or going directly to this link: " http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/inspiron-15-3542-laptop/pd?oc=smi153w10h2358opp&model_id=inspiron-15-3542-laptop&l=en&s=bsd#AnchorZone6 " Another review said it does. Hmm, wonder where they read that?
