Review Dell Studio 1558 (HD4570) Notebook

 

Multimedia Talent? Intel's Core 2 Duo predecessor, Core i5, start

Good display quality; Almost perfect workmanship; Surface aren't prone to smudge; Good work / multimedia and application performance; Quite circumferential connectivity; Good battery life; Keyboard light

Average gaming performance; Wrist-rest gets quite warm; Fairly loud fan noise under load; DVD drive very loud at data access; Keyboard yields; Display very instable; Adapter gets extremely hot

Comparable notebooks of other manufacturers with a Core i3/i5 and a Radeon HD 4000/5000 would for instance be: Acer's Aspire 5740G (i5-430M/20M + HD 4570/5470/5650) or Packard Bell's TJ75 (i3-330M/i5-430M + HD 5470/5650).

Review Dell Studio 1558 Notebook

 

I just love reunions. Already in its nth edition, Dell releases t

Extensive interface equipment; Good input devices; Good workmanship quality; Excellent performance of the Intel Core i5 processor; Low energy consumption in office use; Good battery life

Potentially unfavourable arrangement of interfaces; Hot power block; High system noise under load

Considering the equipment at hand, high-value office and multimedia notebooks. In light of the CPU, a Core i7 should be built-in in order to keep up here.

The decent battery life, dual-band wireless adaptor and high-quality screen make this a great laptop, but there are better deals out there.

Dell Studio 1558

 

If you're looking for a notebook that does the job without mess or fuss, Dell's Studio 1558 should be right up your alley.

eSATA and Firewire ports, nice keyboard and trackpad, good speakers.

Battery life could be better, size and weight nothing to write home about.

Dell Studio 1558 review

 

Nice design and good build, but it lags behind the improved competition and uncertainties remain over cooling issues.

Elsewhere, Dell has added all the bells and whistles. The standard 802.11g wireless networking gets upgraded to 802.11n at a reasonable £9 premium, while Bluetooth costs an altogether more considerable £26. Ports and connectors, meanwhile, are...
