Excellent budget laptop

This laptop is a recommended buy for those looking for a entry level budget laptop from Dell.

The laptop came with Ubuntu OS. Not being a big fan, I installed Windows 7 Ultimate right away. Finding the drivers on dell.com/support/drivers/in/en/inbsd1/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection was effortless (another reason to stick around with Dell) and didn't take more than an hour.

The battery back up is decent - 2.5 hours when running on full brightness and playing content on the DVD drive.

This laptop is a recommended buy for those looking for a entry level budget laptop from Dell.

The laptop came with Ubuntu OS. Not being a big fan, I installed Windows 7 Ultimate right away. Finding the drivers on dell.com/support/drivers/in/en/inbsd1/DriversHome/NeedProductSelection was effortless (another reason to stick around with Dell) and didn't take more than an hour.

The battery back up is decent - 2.5 hours when running on full brightness and playing content on the DVD drive.
The 15.6" screen has excellent viewing angles and the colors look true. The viewing experience as a whole is excellent.

The keyboard and track pad feel very responsive. Some might need the numeric keypad, considering the large screen, but I don't need one. Also, no numeric keypad translates to widely spaced keys, which works great for me.

Plenty of USB slots: 3 ports to connect a USB mouse / pen drive / data card all at once

The first generation i3 processor (380M, 2.54 Ghz) effortlessly meets my daily multitasking requirements. I have Word, Excel, VLC player, Firefox and Chrome open all the time and never faced any performance lag.

The speakers are good and are loud enough.

Here is the Windows Experience Index. The laptop scores fine in all areas, except Graphics where it takes a hit :

Processor : 6.7
Memory : 5.5
Graphics : 3.8
Gaming graphics : 5.1
Primary hard disk : 5.9

This laptop is not for those looking to play high end games. Counter Strike works like a charm, but I wouldn't push it into running Battlefield 3 and expect wonders.

The build quality/feel are alright, but for those who are rather particular about looks, one can get the Inspiron 14R for a few more thousand (but with a smaller screen, of course).
For 27k, one also gets a Dell backpack and 1 year complete cover and onsite service, making the Vostro 1540 the best buy among the lot.

DELL VOSTRO

Always with Dell so tried VOSTRO. First thing the delivery was just the next day. Installed WIN 7 and then other SW and the system was working great.
Hard Drive size is good. Top cover is good to if one wants to avoid scratches on it from regular usage. Complete Cover warranty is an added advantage.
This is good machine which was bought for in-laws and now may get it for a cousin.

Thanks to flipkart will be with you always for anything i need.

Not at all good product.

I purchased this product from Flipkart with complete warranty.But with in one week its right speaker stopped functioning and now both stopped.I called Dell customer care and they informed me that it is because of VLC media player which allows you to play more than 100% volume and they are not ready to replace speakers in warranty period.After checking in Dell community forum I found that this problem is not only faced by me there are some more customers who are facing it.I suggest you to don't go for this product.

You would be contempt

For laptop in range of 25k -29k, this is a good choice.
Bought this one on 11th August and it got delivered on 13th so this does say that the delivery speed is awesome and the way Flipkart wrapped it up was too good! Nice Handle with Care policy!!!

Pros
- The heat vent is at the side so helps by not hurting your lap.
- HD movies play really smooth and look???s cool too!
- Antiglare screen scores as watching movie during the day experience are pleasant. +The Widescreen gives a good experience while watching movie.
- Games like Counter Strike and NFS played smoothly but other games with good Graphics?? Don't even imagine!!
- Comes with Ubuntu 10.10 even though they say DOS
- Web Cam is too cool! 1.3MP makes the images better looking even in low light but for using Skype make sure you have a good Broadband.
- Easy to upgrade RAM to 4 GB with additional slot

Cons
- DVD-R, no dual layer support
- No USB3.0 Port
- Looks are moderate not worth flaunting
- No separate buttons for Wi-Fi

But still I believe that the cons are minor considering the pros!!!
Suggest this for Office goers who at the end of the day want to use a laptop for movie, surfing or playing moderate games like counter strike with friends on Wi-Fi.
