Dell Inspiron 1545Having won a brand new Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop from a contest about a month ago I have had a good chance to put it through its paces as a portable writing / Internet surfing notebook plus one which is used for various platform gaming.

If you have a some extra money and are looking for a laptop, when considering the Dell Inspiron notebooks make sure you opt for the Intel® Pentium® Dual Core™ T4500 instead of the less expensive Celeron processor which won’t give you enough performance to do anything but Internet browsing and basic office applications.

Personal review of Dell Inspiron 1545

The Dell Inspiron 1545 with the T4500 processor loads Windows 7 64bit in less than 20 seconds by default and is able to handle multitasking with ease.  With the 15.6″ screen you get a bit more screen space than with a netbook though the (1366×768) has a bizarre effect on some games that have to size to this unusual pixel resolution.

The Intel X4500HD video card does a decent job rendering games using Direct X 10 and even with using shared memory with your systems 3GB default RAM it does a good job of allowing you to play online RTS or RPG games with decent frame rates.

  • Tested games include: Runes of Magic, Age of Empires II, GuildWars and various other Flash based games on websites online.
  • Tested Applications include:  Nero, MS Office, Outlook, FireFox, Chrome, Pinnacle Studio 14, WonderShare DemoCreator, Thunderbird, Tweetdeck and Picasa

Under all tests all applications and games performed very well although the resolution and details in the graphics for Runes of Magic had to be scaled back a little bit to prevent staggering and frame rate loss.  The laptop overall performed better than any other sub $500.00 laptop I have tested over the years and better than my $1,100 Dell D800.

The built in Wireless for the Dell Inspiron 1545 works well and has never lost a connection in over a month of using the device, I had many problems with USB Wireless keys and to see the built in wireless of the Dell so stable is refreshing.

The one downside of the Dell Inspiron 1545 is that the keyboard is slightly compressed and Dell decided to omit the Pause/Break key on the keyboard.  Since many games and some programs require the pause key to (pause or unpause) without the inspiron pause break key you could be stuck with no ability to perform these actions.   There is a work around and you can find ways to work around a missing pause key to find alternatives which include remapping another key on the keyboard or using the OSK (On Screen Keyboard) built into the Windows Operating System.

In Summary: Dell Inspiron 1545 is decent buy

If you are looking for a laptop that won’t break your budget but give you enough power to run most primary applications and some extra power to have some playtime on the side, you can’t go wrong with the Dell Inspiron 1545.  Though remember to make sure you choose the non Celeron model which doesn’t have the CPU power and would only be ideal if you wanted a netbook with a larger screen.

Do you own Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop? Do let us know your review ?

There are many software’s which will let you share your screen remotely and most free and popular one is MSTSC (Windows remote desktop sharing). Though this free one is limited in terms of feature. Here I will be sharing software which I use when I work with my friends or clients remotely.

Team viewer is one of the most popular free (Also Paid for commercial use) remote screen sharing software. TeamViewer is available for multiple platform like Windows, Mac, Linux and also for iPhone.

teamviewer-screenshot

Team viewer is feature rich and in the latest one they added voice chat and file transfer option. If you have very fast Broadband connection, you can give it’s additional features like File transfer, Webcam sharing, Voice chat a try.

I like this software for it’s basic features and that is remote screen sharing. Team viewer comes with Free and paid version. For commercial use you need to get Paid version of this software else you can use free version.

While installing Team viewer you have two option: You can install this application and use it or you can simply run it without installing it. If you going to try this with your friend, I would suggest use the second method.

Download

Do you use Team viewer? If yes, do let us know your feedback about this application? Which remote screen sharing Software you suggest to others?

Stumble Upon launched its URL shortener Su.pr long time back and personally I enjoy using it because it lets me see the stats, schedule my post on Twitter and Facebook and also see the retweets.

I used to be big fan of bit.ly but I moved to Su.pr because it offers stats + additional traffic when any post gets viral on Stumble Upon.

Stumble Upon rolled out another Important feature which will let you update your Facebook Fan page directly from Su.pr. So now Su.pr URL Shortener can be use for multi-purpose.

How to Update Facebook Fan page from Su.pr

Here I’m sharing a small tutorial which will help you to connect your Facebook fan page with Stumble account.

Login to su.pr. Go to Settings and connect your Facebook account.

facebook-connect

request-permission

Now under su.pr setting page you will see list of your Facebook pages. Now you need to give permission to individual pages to allow su.pr to publish directly to your Facebook page. Click on any page name and you will be taken to permission page directly.

permission

Once done click on refresh list. Head over to Su.pr home page and update your facebook fan page. Here I tried with one test message:

test-message

Stumble-facebook

You can see this message live on our Facebook fan page. Personally I’m loving this update as this will help a lot to update my Twitter, Facebook status and now Facebook Fan page from one place.

Do let us know your feedback about Su.pr. Are you using Stumble Upon URL shortener?
