80% The Vostro 3560 is a good all-rounder that's great for home office use
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Overall, the Vostro 3560 offers good performance and is a solidly build unit with useful features. We like its Full HD screen, responsive performance and its input devices. It could use a dual-band Wi-Fi module though, and the speakers probably aren't in the best position, but apart from those quibbles, there is little to dislike about this basic business model.

Dell Vostro 3560 review – solid overall 15.6 inch laptop
Source: Mikes Quarter English
All in all, the Dell Vostro 3560 is a very good 15.6 inch laptop. With powerful hardware, Windows 7 Professional, a matte FHD screen, an excellent keyboard and trackpad and a solid built exterior, you’ll hardly find a better computer in its class. And that despite those pesky noisy fans and the below-average speakers.

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.
