The new Dell Inspirion Intel i3 – 3537 I ordered the other week finally arrived today.
I got home cracked open the box and spent the last few hours playing around. So far I like it. Not a huge fan of the track pad, but no big deal as I was going to use it with a mouse and/or Bluetooth mouse. The keyboard is alright, I am sure I will get use to that. Seems to run alright.
First thing I did was bump the ram from 4gb to 8gb total. As I figured this will enable me to put VMWare Workstation on and run the odd virtual machine for some recording and testing when I am not wishing to be tied to the desk. Although it will chew battery power of course.
I am finding Windows 8.1 pretty easy to use. I will continue to use it and see how I go.
If your in the market for a budget machine, this one certainly ticks the boxes in my opinion so far.
