I think they are all about the same. Maybe a tad harder sometimes but not that much.

Some models hide the memory underneath the keyboard.

My cousin has a Dell Inspiron also. He had no trouble installing his and he is only like 14 years old and doesen't know a lot about computers. I'm sure with a Dell that they would not make it hard to get at. If you are still unsure you could just turn off the laptop and take off the cover to just be sure that it will be easy to get at.

Your laptop MUST be turned off when replacing the RAM.
