    Inspiron 15 3521

    • Big on features, not on price.

      Manage daily tasks with the affordable Inspiron™ 15 — a 15.6" laptop with the latest Intel® Core™ processors, a thin design and 10-key number pad.
    • Impressive performance

      Megatasking is the new multitasking
      One thing at a time? No way. With powerful Intel® Core™ processors and Windows 8 apps for social media, news and more, you can turn around tasks in a flash, no matter where you are.

      Watch it your way
      Pack hours of TV shows on the Inspiron 15’s spacious hard drive or pop a movie in the DVD-RW drive. Either way, you’ll get lost in the 15.6" HD Truelife display. At home, connect to an HDMI™-capable TV or monitor for an even bigger view.

      • 15.6" HD display (720p) WLED with Truelife (1366x768) makes for stunning visuals.
      • Tray-loading DVD-RW lets you burn files and watch your favorite movies.
      • Huge hard drive has the capacity to store thousands of songs or photos or hours of video.
      • HDMI 1.4 port connects you to an HDTV or HD monitor for a home theater experience.
    • Get more with a touchscreen

      Experience hands-on interactivity with touch functionality. The things you do with a mouse and keyboard are more intuitive with touch. Access your email and favorite websites, view and edit your media, and switch between apps, all with the touch of your fingers on the screen.

      • Windows 8: The fluid, fast interaction makes it easy to accomplish any task.
      • Intuitive navigation: Zoom, scroll and rotate with easy-to-master gestures.
    • Slim and stylish
      Starting at just over 1" thin, Inspiron 15 slips easily into a travel bag when you’re on the move. Its textured lid and palm rest help you get a grip on things.

      Essential features
      Foster your creative side or crunch the numbers. The choice is yours with a 10-key number pad, 8-in-1 media card reader, USB 3.0 ports and more.

      • Ports: Connect MP3 players, cameras, external drives and more using two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, HDMI 1.4 and RJ45 Ethernet ports.
      • 10-key number pad: Accountants rejoice. A 10-key numeric keypad makes managing spreadsheets and balancing budgets a breeze.
      • 8-in-1 media card: Can’t find your camera cables? Just upload media files right from your camera’s card with the 8 in 1 media reader.

      Charge ahead
      Stay powered up long enough to skip the in-flight movie, polish your presentation and drift off to your favorite music.

      Designed for the real world — because that's where life happens.

      We want you to love your new PC for years to come. That's why we test every Inspiron laptop for reliability not just in the places where you expect it, but for the open road ahead.

      • Turn up the heat: From locker rooms to locked cars, we test Inspiron laptops for survival in harsh short-term heat conditions of up to 65°C/149°F.
      • Everything hinges on it: We test Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure they still feel tight, even after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times.
      • Keys to success: We test commonly used keys for 10 million keystrokes and touch pad buttons 1 million times with no failure. So go ahead, finish your novel.
      • Buttoned up: No matter what you set your power and multimedia buttons to do, we've tested them all to survive up to 40,000 pushes with no problems.
      • Twist and turn: Call us excessive, but after twisting every Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected.
      • Always a good fit: You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 750 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
