Most Helpful Customer Reviews
First of all, when buying these devices online, there's always a little ''risk'' that it could come faulty, etc; in my case it arrived functional and new, sealed in the original package. I bought this to replace my 8 year old Inspiron 1545 (at that time it cost me $100 more than this one) which surprisingly still does the job done, though it heats constantly and it's a lot bulkier and heavier than this one. Anyways, I will try to write a review as clear as possible from what I have experienced so far with this laptop Dell Inspiron i3543:
Pros: Processor: This one has a 5th generation Intel Core i3 and it is indeed a dual core processor, more than enough for most people, if one wants to play games or use more demanding applications then this might not be enough processing power.
Memory: 4 gigs of ram, it is upgradable by simply removing the cover with a screwdriver, just remember the rams specifications (frequencies, voltages, type), this laptop supports up...
My main device is a chromebook that I love, but sometimes I'm forced to run Windows. Didn't want to spend a lot of money on a laptop I would seldom use, but it seems Windows doesn't support that use case. You need to run windows every day, so it can update all the time because that's all it does. I hardly have any SW installed on this thing and it spends most of its time (i.e. MY TIME) time doing updates. Maybe an SSD would make that more tolerable, but with the hard drive in this thing it's non stop pain.
I think this will be the last Windows laptop I ever buy.
I've had nothing but problems with this computer. From a terrible touchpad (which simultaneously registers single clicks as double clicks AND registers right-clicks as left-clicks about 20% of the time) to a faulty Bluetooth driver (I have to assume this, as my other laptop has never had a single problem connecting to my Bluetooth speaker), about the only positive thing I can say about this computer is that it was $200 cheaper than my previous laptop...which I never had a serious issue with.
