|I’m leaning toward the Dell Inspiron 3000 i3558 and HP Pavilion 15ay039. I take about 100 pictures a year and burn them to disc for friends. I see there are at least 3 different models of dell i3558 -tell me the difference in them – and if there is some other brand that will do what I need for less I am game. I am angry with how slow Facebook is, it takes several minutes to get to read a story and the ads make reading them impossible.|

Our Laptop Recommendation
As far as I can see, there are indeed a few models of Dell Inspiron i3558, the differences being the processor (i3 or i5) and the RAM (4, 6 or 8 GB). For what you are doing, the Intel i3 processor should be plenty for burning and editing pictures. Try to avoid 4 GB of RAM, 6 GB is going to make a big difference when running multiple programs and web pages and 8 GB is even better. Here are you choices, the three will do the job, I’d suggest going for the middle one with an i5 an 6 GB of RAM.
- Dell Inspiron i3558 with Intel i3 and 6 GB of RAM
- Dell Inspiron i3558 with Intel i5 and 6 GB of RAM
- Dell Inspiron i3558 with Intel i5 and 8 GB of RAM
As far as the HP goes, the HP 15-ay039 is also a decent choice, but for almost the same price, I’d go with the Dell with an i5 and 6 GB of RAM.
If you are willing to spend around $450, the HP 15-ay011nr is an excellent choice with a HD screen, which is not the case with the two laptops you talked about.
Thanks and don’t hesitate if you have more questions,
