Reviews for the Dell Vostro 3560

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.
