Worth every single Rupee.
by Saurav Srivastava on 2015-12-11
I have purchased this laptop for my wife. Her usage is limited to Microsoft Office and web browsing only.
This laptop has only one RAM slot so you cannot avail the benefit of dual channel RAM. I installed a G-Skill 8 GB RAM and it worked fine.
I tried installing Samsung 750 Evo and 850 Evo SSD in this laptop but it was not compatible. Windows will copy all files during installation but then fail to boot. There was no such issue with INBUILT 500 gb Toshiba HDD. In everyday use this doesn't feel too slow now. I will try other SSD brands later to see if they work.
This laptop comes with Ubuntu 14.04 pre-installed which is a good basic and free OS for casual home usage as people spend most of their time online only these days. However I installed Original Windows 10 home OEM on this laptop as my wife is more familiar with Windows.
The lid has a texture due to which laptop will not slip from hands. Build quality is all plastic and this laptop is around 2 kg in weight due to which this will be sturdy when placed on a table.
It comes with 2 USB 2.0 ports and 1 USB 3.0 ports and HDMI port. There is no VGA port but that is ok. Hardly anyone uses it now.
The charger cable is long enough. Battery lasts around 6 to 7 hrs easily on "balanced" power profile.
The screen has a resolution of 1376x768 which means it is not sharp enough. At 1376x768 a 11" or 12" laptop screen is very sharp. Still, the colours are good and for the price, the quality and sharpness is fine.
Overall a very good purchase for the price.

Bought this laptop on big billion day for 17990 .Flipkart packaging was good as usual .
Its a great budget laptop
Good Speed (Powers on and turns Off, pretty damn quick)
Good Battery backup
Graphics could have been better (at least Intel HD 4400)
I can play 720p,1080p movies smoothly but you have to compromise with picture quality
(Of course you cannot get everything in 18k)
you first need to format the Drive to NTFS to be able to install windows (Tutorials available on youtube )
Download all the drivers from dell website (The laptop functions properly only after installing all drivers)
Good for Regular use , Not very fancy but value for money ,best in this bracket
100 % value for your money

I love this product , No need to worry about this laptop , i had tested it for the last 1 week and few things i noticed are,
Battery : 7 hours battery
Super fast with 4 gb RAM
SLIM ( no need to have CD drive )
HDMI and Card slot is perfect
Front camera performance is average
No VGA port
No CD writer ( Now a days no use )
Great Value for Money product
by Mitul Vasa on 2015-10-27
I purchased this laptop for basic office documentation and email work. As of now this seems to be a great configuration at affordable price.
As it has been mentioned, it is good for everyday use. Price of 17K sounds reasonable with great battery support.
And Ubuntu has been a clean OS, ofcourse you cannot install .exe files but you have a virus free system
For people cribbing about
No VGA, No DVD Writer, No LAN
Why did you buy the product in first place? Does Dell / Flipkart Fail to mention these details.
by Rajesh Rao on 2015-08-10
There is no CD drive, There is no Lan connection. Display problem. totally waste of cost.
Not even worth for single star also.

This product was good for me. But I don't think this will be nice for everyone.
I already had a windows 10 laptop, but wanted a Ubuntu/Linux laptop to do programming. I connected this to a 21 inch Samsung Monitor, a keyboard and mouse. Thus for me it was okay.
I got this for 15,000 on filpkart and for 17,000 on amazon.
BUT, if you want this to be your main/personal laptop which you will carry everywhere, I will not recommend it. It's looks are fabulous. Although, it's touchpad is horrible. The more you try, you will get more frustrated. The keyboard is good, processor is average. Ubuntu, has a few bugs, and if you're shifting from Windows to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, it will take time for you to get used to it.
I would recommend you to buy it when - You're gonna connect this to a keyboard, mouse (especially) and monitor. Also, this isn't gonna be your main computer.
I would recommend you to not buy it when - This is gonna be your main computer. You'll use this to have all your files and will be carrying this around everywhere. You're gonna use it up to the full potential.
1. Good looks.
2. Nice Keyboard.
3. Wireless is fine.
1. Horrible touchpad.
2. No CD/ROM
3. No LAN.
4. Ubuntu Bugs
5. No light to indicate whether comp is ON/OFF.
Final Verdict: I have given it three stars as it was good for my use. Otherwise it would be 2 stars.

Dell Inspiron 3551 15.6-inch Laptop (Pentium N3540/4GB/500GB/Ubuntu Linux/Intel HD Graphics), Black
This is really a great deal. I bought it and tried to use with Linux operating system but since we are familiar with Windows so it was some how difficult to use. So I asked my IT team to install Window 8 and also MS office 2010. Now it is working perfectly fine. I love it. Speed is very good.
One more thing, I went to local store of Croma considering that I might get this product at same or even low price but they were selling at much higher price. The difference of price was more than Rs.4000/- So I placed order on Amazon and got it in 3 days. Best place to buy products online is Amazon.
Amazing laptop under 20K
by tejasviknight on 2016-06-29
Well i am not good in reviews but i hope this will help those who really need to about this.
I am writing this review after 1 month so here it is. But first i would like to thank you to the amazon for great packing and gave me product on perfect time how it was expected.
So here we start :-
Beautiful black matt finished laptop you get after opening the box which you would loved on first sight..
in the box you will charger and laptop and some guide pages which you do not even read too and this laptop with linux which make you use internet without fear of virus but if you want you can change it later when you want.
Battery is really amazing guys if you use it on 50 % it gives you at least more than 3 hours..while watching movies but if you just surf the internet its very much enough for you complain claimed that it give 8 hours but its 7 hours with minimum brightness.
Display quality is good some really complain but what you will get in 20k ?
Laptop has HDMI , USB3.0 and USB 2.0 but not lan port and also dvd writer too which make laptop slim and beautiful and these days no need of that too..
Chiklet keyboard made you feel amazing when you type
Its all plastic and black so it looks very decent and comfortable because of light weight.
Speed of the laptop is really amazing i use Windows 10 and it works very smoothly. Seriously guys if you want budget laptop under 20k go for this instead of celeron processor with 2Gb Ram
it comes with 4Gb ram and everything is perfect as it should be there is no hang while browsing and even switching to applications
I use opera and Chrome and music and word and sometimes even photoshop 7.0 too but it does not make my work slow but yes if you want to stretch more and more harder of course it will give you pain because its not high end laptop.
about games? ; its budget laptop not gaming but you can play games who does not need much graphic
this laptop comes with integrated laptop 4400 so its decent for watching movies on 1080p you can connect it to the T.v and you can see quality too
No comes with Windows..
Guys if you want to install the windows please check the video on youtube otherwise you will not able to install it.
not come with drivers so you have to find it and download it from internet and if you have no another computer so it means you have to go cyber cafe and download it drivers because it does not come with lan. but if you have dongle you can use it on and download from your computer too.
its really not very up to mark guys because it does not come installed gesture control so you have to download the latest version for windows 10 then it will work .
Concl;- After the long story here it is the point if you want to buy laptop under 20k then go for it but if your budget above then please do not go for the i3 much better and powerful too.. this laptop comes with with more advantages and little disadvantages so in the i would like to say only that its your money and many students and guys who want for daily need saved very carefully so if you will buy this laptop you will not regret. Its perfect laptop under 20K and it will not disappoint you.SO GO FOR IT>
What a ride from Amazon/Dell !!

The touch pad is pathetic. The body is all cheap plastic which is okay for cheap laptop because I make use of it in place of desktop. But touchpad is so horrible that sometime i fear i might break it.
Ok but warranty shows 5 months remaining, Ubuntu 14.04lts sucks
by Manish Gupta on 2016-10-23
I got this item in lightning deal,
Build quality is good for normal use and webcam is good.
Battery back up 3-4 hours
Ubuntu update sucks, on the first day os crashed 3 times,
Struggling to install windows....
Worst part is warranty, Dell website says laptop registered in March 2016, I received in Oct 2016
Why I am getting 7 months old item
Amazon cheating customers by selling old stuff.
I am going to flight with Dell on that.

Extended warranty not by Dell
by Amazoner on 2016-03-03
Extended Warranty is not being provided by the manufacturer Dell. It is being provided by some third-party vendor called "OnsiteGo EWSA". I thought manufacturer is providing it. Now I regret it :(

3rd class product and 3 rd class service
Lacklustre performance - expected
by Najmuddin Ahmed on 2016-01-03
ubuntu is troublesome in this unit especially after it takes an update.
Overall the machine is lackluster and a bit slow for even normal browsing.
It is light in weight and does not get heated.
I love Linux. Due to lack of support to install ...

I purchased one with Ubuntu 14.04LTS. I love Linux. Due to lack of support to install Moodle, I changed my OS to Windows 7. Now I am comfortably working. Worth spending
by Amazon Customer on 2016-02-06
Overall satisfying performance.
I am able to run AutoCAD,CATIA,hyperworks softwares.battery backup actually very good It can run up to 6 hours in single charge.good for professional and daily use.
Windows 8.1 take 60-70 seconds for become ready to use.Touchpad quality is kind of poor.but touch sensitivity is good.
It doesn't have CD-DRIVE, LAN port &19 pin video output port.Still no big deal.
But got HDMI port.
Gaming is ok it got about 2000mb internal graphics.
