Dell Vostro 3546

 

A reasonably well built device for the money. Nothing special but no real shockers. Not too much bloatware either which helps. Plus a re-install DVD is included. A good cheap standard laptop. Easily accessible HDD and ram too which is getting rare at...

No 5GHz wi-fi which should be standard and the usual 1366x768 TN panel. But hey, its cheap and does the job.

Dell Vostro 3546

 

My wife and I are in our eighth decade and became used to windows office and in particular outlookin nthe eighties and nineties. We hve no desire for games or huge downloads. We have always used Dell machines at work and at home. so the big plus for us...

Nothing about the computer has appeared yet, hwever the software leaves something to be desired. Just because something is possible that is not a good reason to do it. A lot of visits to the varios forum to get it straight
