Worth the price and the service
by Anirudh Sharan on 2013-09-29
I purchased this laptop on the 26th of August in the morning and received it on the 27th evening. I have heard a ton of horror stories of missing shipments and delayed deliveries and was always vary of buying electronic goods from a website. These two days, however, were a breeze owing to the updates that I received on regular basis as to the location of the shipment. After receipt, I checked the box and was pleasantly surprised with the packaging. A large a** box which packed the laptop, accessories, and the bag neatly.
Pros (Not so required to absolutely essential):
1. The bag is steadfast and holds the laptop neatly
2. The haptically structured surface has a comfortable grip
3. Old-fashioned NumPad (Took me forever to work on my other laptop with “new fangled no-numbers on the side”)
4. The cam works well and is not dark as my last notebook (Also from DELL)
5. A larger screen is a boon (We are continuously looking for smaller laptops and larger cell phones – I really don’t get it!!!)
6. The laptop’s configurations are upto the mark and works like a dream (The i5 Processor and 6GB RAM do their job with aplomb as I am not a laptop-gamer and these are satisfactory for me)
Cons (Alarming to mildly concerning):
1. Side cracks are prone to dust
2. The battery does not hold for as long as claimed (Now I know most claims are tall but I cannot watch a complete movie, i.e., less than 3 hours without your charger plugged in)
3. Speakers reach a high volume but only bass sound is heard (especially at high volume). Since it does not own a subwoofer, can barely hear any low-pitched sounds. Buy good speakers.
4. The reflective and not too bright display is a sun worshipper's nightmare
5. Flipkart’s offering the same laptop at minus 2500/- in a month’s time (This one’s only for me :P :P)
Verdict (My two cents)
The laptop seems to be a tough cookie: Dell's Inspiron squeezes ultrabook features, business features (numeric pad, good ergonomics) and game capability (Mobile HM76 Express) in one simple plastic chassis. Gaming and computing performance are convincing for this price-range, at least for supporters of energy-saving processors. Despite the claims, it fails to ensure competitive run-times of over seven hours.. All in all, the Inspiron 15 3521 stays a simple device that is economical but still powerful enough for home/office use and not-to-demanding games. Those who want more gaming performance and a more appealing look should look elsewhere. The look and processing leave a very good impression even though the plastic surfaces only imitate aluminum and are made for undemanding customers.

Dell laptops though popular are worst in hardware durability...do not last long, the customer care of dell charges excessively high for its cheap parts....spent about 10000 in past four months but problems keep recurring
replaced the motherboard within the first 4 months...It's not only me but my 8-9 friends have faced the similar issues in dell.

Careless & Very Inefficient Logistics and Customer care
by Sanjaykumar Gajare on 2013-08-07
I placed order on 30 Jul and 31 Jul for laptop. From that day no steps has been taken by Flipkart to procure the product or give the information. Every day I am hearing that you will get the product in 2 days. I find these people are very careless. Everyday they make same promises and waste my time. I am feeling cheated by Flipkart. Till date I have not received the product.
