Laptop and gaming are two equivalent thing that go hand in hand, and one can’t exist without the other. Of course every aspiring laptop buyer is somewhere in the mind keeping the thought of gaming in it in the next moment. However nothing is more embarrassing than not being able to play the same in it. It’s like all the expectations have sunk somewhere in the ocean.


The subject of my review is the Dell Vostro 1540 laptop from the house of Dell. Even though aspiring gamers are expected to purchase a somewhat expensive model for perfect gaming, there is something I believe very crucial missing in this laptop. But before that, let’s get to the specification of this model.


1.) Intel Core i3


2.) 2 GB DDR3 RAM


3.) 15.6 inch screen


4.) 320 GB Hard Drive


The laptop is originally priced around Rs.32000 and we happened to crack a deal at Rs.30000. My father purchased it 3 years ago when its need was strictly based on office and work purposes. It’s when I was handed over the laptop that I came to know about the limitations it possess.


First and foremost, the hard drive. At a price above Rs.30000, atleast a 500 GB hard drive is expected. No way is the time when a 320 GB hard drive would satisfy the needs. Thus it becomes absolutely mandatory to purchase an additional external drive with the laptop or else forget your favourite games and movies.


Coming to the RAM part, a 2 GB DDR3 RAM almost serves the purpose. It is just enough to carry a smooth execution of a few applications and light end games. Though the computer does slow out on OS like XP and Windows 7, it performs well and good with Windows 8 and Windows 10 OS.


The screen size is good. No comments on that.


But the major problem is the i3 processor. Now is the time when i7 is ruling the computing world and no way i3 can be compromised with. The i3 processor combined with a 2GB DDR3 RAM makes in for a very poor performance, both for games and daily needs. High end games have no chance on the laptop as there is no additional graphics other than the inbuilt Intel Graphics which fails to serve the purpose. I think this is where the laptop gets a little backward in comparison to other laptops.


In my opinion, a few specs higher wouldn’t hurt Dell as companies like HP and Lenovo go all the way in providing heart-touching features in laptops at the same price range. Thus, this laptop can be avoided. The Lenovo and HP counterparts provide a much better specs and configuration in the same price and should be grabbed instead of this.
