Review Dell Studio 1555 Notebook

 

Media Artist. Dell offers the new Studio 1555 models at a competi

Plain case with the possibility of individualization; Attractive starting price; Several configuration options available (BluRay, UMTS...; Lighted keyboard; Full-HD display available; Low system noise in office mode possible; Very good sound rendering

Partially low case stability; Numerous surcharge listings; Ports not optimal for lefties; Restricted graphic performance; Partially high case temperatures under load

Depending on the Dell 1555's configuration, lower priced multimedia starters, but also slightly better equipped multimedia notebooks come into question. For instance: Acer, Toshiba, Asus,...

Dell Studio 15 (1555) Review

 

The Studio 15 is available in your choice of six colors: Plum Purple, Promise Pink, Midnight Blue, Ruby Red, Spring Green or standard Black Chainlink. If those aren't enough options for you, the Dell Design Studio offers the Studio 15 in your choice of...

Great customizable options ; Good value and performance ; Cool Dell Design Studio lids ; Good speakers and subwoofer

Could use more USB ports ; Average build quality

If you're in the market for a nice family PC that has a fantastic range of multimedia features at a good price then the Dell Studio 15 is worth consideration. If you can't look beyond the flexible plastics then luckily there are many alternatives on...

Dell Studio 1555 (S1555-4285MBU)

 

The keyboard is exceedingly comfortable. The extra-wide 15.6-inch display (it features a 16:9 aspect ratio as opposed to the standard 16:10 widescreen aspect ratio), leaves plenty of room for the keyboard. Dell didn't try to cram in a dedicated number...

Outstanding battery life. Roomy hard drive. Competitive application performance. Exceedingly comfortable keyboard, touchpad, and mouse buttons. Useful collection of ports. Slot-loading DVD drive is a nice touch

Hot spot on wrist rest. Tiny rubber feet on bottom of battery dig into thighs when engaged in true laptop computing. Boxy design won't turn heads. No Blu-ray support

With its long-lasting battery, useful feature set, and functional design, the Dell Studio 1555 is still the 15.6-inch laptop to beat.

Dell Studio 1555 notebook review

 

Dell's Studio 15 has been around for a little while now, impressing on a number of levels. The widespread adoption of 16:9 widescreen displays meant it was only a matter of time before a major update appeared, and the latest Studio 1555 has a lot to...

Good value for money, excellent quality and usability

Still not the cheapest machine, lowish screen resolution

A great all-rounder, the Dell Studio 1555 offers excellent performance, quality and usability, making it a machine that’s well worth a second look

Dell Studio 1555 Midnight Blue

 

We see if it's worth buying the retail version of Dell's latest 15.6in laptop, which sports a large 500GB hard drive.

Unfortunately, this Studio 1555 is let down somewhat by its display, which is noticeably inferior to that found in our previous sample. This version had a coarser, grainier appearance and struggled to produce subtle colour gradients cleanly. This...

Dell Studio 1555 - 15.6in Laptop

 

We take a look at Dell's newly updated Studio 15 to see if it's an all-round champion.

If you're after a flexible and powerful laptop for the home and occasional mobile use, the Studio 1555 is a very good option. It's attractive, easy to use and can be configured more or less as you please. Discrete graphics options mean it's also a...

Dell Studio 1555

 

You'd be forgiven for not noticing any dramatic changes over its predecessor, but there are some subtle changes. Most notable of these is the disappearance of the 15.4in, 16:10 ratio display. In its place there now stands a 15.6in, 16:9 replacement.

Dell brings its Studio 15 bang up to date with a 15.6in, 16:9 ratio display, but patchy build quality limits its appeal

Sleek design, love the HDMI connectivity, powerful processor

Not sure the battery life is as long as advertised, though its at least 3 hours
