Office tiger. The top version of Dell's brand new Vostro generation not only hunts for customers with a strong Sandy Bridge processor, but also a powerful graphics card. AMD's Radeon HD 6630M arouses a craving for multimedia. What else the matt 15 incher is capable of can be read here.

Small-business customers looking for an affordable, durable, and secure 15.6-inch business notebook will like the Dell Vostro 3550. This $682 laptop also provides good sound, whether you're listening to tunes, giving a presentation, or chatting via Skype. Overall, we prefer the sleeker brushed-aluminum finish on the HP ProBook 4530s, which, for $50 more, adds more power with a Core i5 processor and a larger 500GB hard drive. But for those on a tight budget, the Vostro 3550 is a reliable productivity partner.

Dell Vostro 3550 review

It's hard not to like the Vostro 3550; it looks good and feels comfortable to use. We like its backlit keyboard and huge touchpad, and it has a useful array of ports along its edges. Best of all, it has fast performance and long battery life thanks to the Sandy Bridge Core i7 CPU and 9-cell battery.

The Dell Vostro 3550 is a 15.6in, 2.7kg business notebook with a swag of great features. The standout of these features is Intel's 2nd Generation Core i7 CPU, which gives the Vostro 3550 plenty of speed and, in conjunction with a 9-cell battery, a very long life away from a power outlet. The Dell Vostro 3550 is a great 15.6in business laptop.

Dell reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Radeon HD 6630M: Successor of the slow clocked (low power) versions of the Mobility Radeon HD 5650 with more cores, UVD3 processor and Eyefinity+.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i5:

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.52 kg:


77%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
