9 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

If you would prefer a notebook PC with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the T420s (£1,388.87) (SSD), or the S540 (SSD) both from Lenovo.

5 Other reasons to consider the DELL Latitude 3540

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when DELL released the Latitude 3540.

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 15.6 inches, the Latitude 3540 has a fairly average screen size compared to most of the other portable PCs that are a comparable age to the Latitude 3540.

We compared this laptop to all the other 15.6" laptops and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL Vostro 3560 (£329.00) is also worth considering.

Portable PCs with a bigger screen size that might be worth considering include the DELL Inspiron 17R (17.3") which also has a higher rating.

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the DELL Latitude 3540 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other laptops of a similar age and spec to the Latitude 3540.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity laptops currently available including the DELL Vostro 3560 (£329.00) which has better reviews.

If this medium processor core notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Toshiba Satellite Z30 (512GB).
