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...

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 - Pocket-lint


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

Good value for money, excellent quality and usability

Still not the cheapest machine, lowish screen resolution

Subtle revisions to Dell’s Studio 15 means it’s not that different to its predecessor, which isn’t a problem: it already offered better styling than most and excellent value for money. A great keyboard and impressive quality means it remains one of the...

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.

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
