    Review by Narasimha Kulkarni

    Hi,

    I've just got the Dell Vostro 1540 laptop right 4 days after ordering from Flipkart.
    It is 15.6 inch 4GB/500GB/I3 Processor machine loaded with Ubuntu OS. There is a backpack which just fits the m/c.

    For those who've ordered and got the products from Flipkart I need not to tell about Packing Quality.
    For newbies just one word and that would be Flipkart packing is superb.

    If you are interested about the looks and Games rather than performance/specifications then just don't go for this l...

    The best deal Flipkart ever offered me.

    I bought this notebook computer on 27th Jan, 12.
    The packaging policy was simply awesome.
    It came preloaded with Ubuntu 10.4.
    I installed Windows 7 Ultimate onto it.

    The only problem is that you have to download all the drivers from DELL's official website by yourself as this notebook computer does not come with a necessary driver CD.
    But when you install all the mentioned drivers from DELL's site, the experience of using this computer is awesome.

    It has got a good 15.6" HD LED screen, Wi-f...

    You cannot install even XP on this laptop

    You can install only window 3.1 on this computer
    Bad hardware. Only intel i7 is available. This laptop is made from recycled very old computer parts discarded by US in third world countries communist regimes.

    Wifi connectivity problem with Ubuntu 10.10 and other Ubuntu variants

    I ordered this laptop and got the delivery on 18th Jan 2012.
    Delivery was withing 7 days from the way on which order was placed.

    Plus Points:

    1. Look is OK
    2. Weight is normal
    3. Ubuntu 10.10 is Free, so price is less as compared to win7 version Dell Vostro.
    4. Laptop Carry bag is free.

    Negative Points:

    1. Wifi connectivity is almost nil. If your priority is wifi access then don't opt for Dell Vostro with Ubuntu OS. Because wifi drivers provided with it for Broadcom Chipset are not proper...

    Dell Vostro 1540 Ci3 - best deal

    For the spec and the amount, i would say this is the best deal.
    N the shipping is also very fast. It also comes with a HDMI port. For any user who is not going to do much of development work/ graphic realted stuff, this is the best offer.
