Advantages: Very quiet, very quick, and is easy to upgrade
Disadvantages: Expensive, Dell Dock is annoying, instruction manual a pain

Where to start with this product. I have had it now for two weeks now, and I'm not sure what to think of it. The 545 as a whole is very good, but as something you could use everyday is another matter. Let's start with performance. I bought the £429 Insip ...
