Touch screen laptops are very practical, especially if the hinge system allows you to use them in tablet mode, but even if we’re dealing with a model lacking this feature, they’re still very cool. There’s a small problem with them though: in most cases, they’re pretty expensive and not anybody can afford one. But that’s already an issue of the past, as the Dell Inspiron I3541-2002BLK proves that touch screen laptops can have an accessible price tag too.
It’s powered by the AMD A6-6310 Accelerated Processor, with four cores, aided by an integrated AMD Radeon R4 graphic card, with a HDMI output, able to provide very crisp images. In terms of RAM, it comes with 4 GB of DDR3L memory, expandable with 4 more. As for the storage capacity, this laptop has a 500 GB HDD, perfect for storing music, photos movies and even games, as it can handle some less-demanding titles.
In terms of connectivity, the Dell Inspiron I3541-2002BLK comes with a card reader, supporting multiple formats, Bluetooth 4.0 interface, allowing you to connect your cellphone or MP3 player to it and of course, Wireless LAN (802.11n) and Ethernet LAN, for quick and simple Web access and three USB ports. There’s also a DVD/CD optical drive, which can used for enjoying your favorite media or transferring data or DVDs.
The 15.6″ display is using a LED-backlit high-definition touch-screen panel, with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Also, the TrueLife Technology presents media in very rich detail, even though it’s not full HD, which for a budget laptop is a great feature.
The Dell Inspiron I3541-2002BLK comes with an integrated webcam, good enough for chatting with your friends or using it for video conferences. Also, the package includes the 4-cell lithium-ion battery too, big enough to provide power for around 4 hours of uninterrupted work.
Design-wise, we’re dealing with a pretty compact laptop, weighing just 5.26 lbs and measuring 1″ in thickness. The Dell Inspiron I3541-2002BLK comes in a nice matte black finish, which confers a very simple, but in the same time smooth and elegant look.
Like we said, it’s one of the most accessible touch screen laptops on the market, so if you’re planning to get one, you should have $399.99 prepared. You will receive the Dell Inspiron I3541-2002BLK with a pre-installed copy of Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 64-bit and a 30-day trial of Microsoft Office, so considering the price, it’s obvious that this laptop is one of the best deals of the moment.
