Dell Vostro 15 5568 (Core i5, Full-HD) Notebook Review


Elegant business beginner. The Dell Vostro is an inexpensive 15-inch laptop for smaller companies and covers all the essentials. It is also wrapped up in a nicely designed chassis. You will have to make some compromises, but we cannot find any serious...

nice case ; good system performance ; decent upgrade options ; practical runtimes

poor TN display ; mediocre input devices ; limited business features ; bad speakers ; no TrackPoint

Dell's Vostro 15 is a decent office notebook. That there are some compromises compared to more expensive business notebooks should not surprise anyone. However, there are no serious problems that would stop us from buying it. Sure, the FHD TN display...

Dell Vostro 15 3558 Notebook Review


Enduring. The Dell Vostro 3558 is a low-cost office notebook that is primarily designed as a working device. This claim is supported by good battery runtimes and decent input devices. It is unfortunate that Dell did not equip the device with a...

matte display, usually very quiet, limited warming, good battery runtimes, maintenance hatch

12 months warranty, no digital video output

The Dell Vostro 3558 primarily wants to be an inexpensive working device for companies and business users. It is powerful enough for common tasks; the device is usually very quiet and gets hardly warm. You also get decent input devices and good battery...

Dell Vostro 15 3549 Laptop Review


The Dell Vostro 15 3549 is described as an affordable business laptop, and on paper the specifications certainly seem to suggest we have the makings of a decent portable PC. There is a Broadwell-U CPU, 4GB RAM and a 15.6″ HD display – along with a...

i5-5200U performs well

HDD is slow and should be bigger at the very least

The Vostro 15 3549 seems a good, business laptop. It is nothing fancy, but handles general tasks easily and can stretch to light gaming loads too.

Cheap plastic. The mouse keeps sticking. The page keeps enlarging all by itself it's mega sensitive to any movement and it keeps crashing.\nIt's going back ASAP.\nThe plus side is Tesco customer service is excellent.

Great laptop for the money


once the software was all updated (around 3 hours) the laptop worked great. Ideal for what I want to use it for.\nWindows 10 seams to work better than windows 8 so worth the hassle!\nJust be aware that the wifi protocol in windows 10 doesn't like old...

Not so good


I don't like the quality compared to previous Dell. Keyboard buttons too small. Return key too near to numerical keypad thus for touch typists not good. Quality of display poor.\nOverall size larger then others with same size screen. Not very nice...
