Review Dell Vostro 3500 Notebook


New Vostro. The Vostro 3500 has Intel's latest hardware and Nvidi

Good application performance; Matt display with a good brightness; Connectivity including eSATA and HDMI; Comprehensive communication configuration

Unfavorable interface placement for lefties; No separate docking port (USB solution only)

Other 15.6 inch business laptops at a low price with the latest hardware, such as Toshiba's Tecra A11-125 with a GMA HD or HP's ProBook 6540b with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550.

Dell Vostro 3500 laptop review


A handsome, sturdy and and functional business oriented laptop with a few shortcomings

The Dell Vostro 3500 sells for a recommended retail price of R10,999 at the time of writing. Alone this may seem like a slightly expensive ask considering the hardware configuration, but Dell includes their 3 year Onsite Next Business Day Warranty, and...

Dell Vostro 3500 review


Dell's mainstream laptop for small business looks good value before you add in the extras

Good performance; good keyboard; relatively low cost

Windows 7 Home Premium; relatively low battery life

Dell's Vostro 3500 does exactly what it says on the tin. The laptop is a value-for-money mid-range system for small business customers. Although it has few frills, this Vostro meets all a customer's basic requirements, and looks a bit more stylish than...

Dell Vostro 3500


Dell recently updated their Vostro range with the 3000 Series, a collection of notebooks and laptops designed with small to medium businesses in mind. There are a variety of models to choose from the range – the Vostro 3300 measures up at 13.3″; the...

The Dell Vostro 3500 is a decent laptop at a reasonable price and combines a stylish design with good performance. If you’re not wanting to play the latest 3D games in full resolution, the 3500 will offer enough quality in most departments to please a...

Dell Vostro 3500


Indeed, there's a lot to like about the Dell Vostro 3550, and it all starts under the bonnet. The second-generation Intel Core i7-2620M CPU runs at 2.7GHz and has two cores and Hyperthreading, along with a Turbo Boost speed of 3.4GHz. It also features...

Consumer review by: Peter G 46 (

Still a reasonable computer


With its i7 processor, even a 2 year old Vostro 3500 is a quite useful laptop, and would be worth picking up second hand if you want decent laptop power on a budget, or need a good emergency device. With an LCD backlit screen and switchable graphics,...

Rugged, speedy enough and good battery life on the 9 cell unit.

Runs hot, big battery digs into knees, lack of USB 3.0
