Reviews for the Dell Vostro 15-3549

80% Dell Vostro 15 3549 Laptop Review
Source: Kitguru English
Thanks to the ultra low power Core i5-5200U, processing power for the laptop is not bad at all. General tasks – how the laptop would be used by business users – are no problem at all, while I found the Vostro 3549 could even stretch to some image editing. Nothing heavy, but it could be useful for some customers or businesses. As for games and graphical power, the integrated HD 5500 chip is obviously not going to run The Witcher 3, for instance. Tomb Raider averaged 30.1fps though at low image quality settings, so light gaming is more-or-less OK. If you are looking for a simple laptop which can accomplish everyday tasks at a canter, while handling some light gaming and image editing, this could be it. There are no major drawbacks, and I’d say it is an effective solution at a reasonable price.

Comment

Model: The Dell Vostro 15 is first and foremost a business laptop and is therefore designed to suit the working executive rather than the avid gamer or movie fan. The overall built looks very serious with a black plastic exterior that may look unattractive to some but the outer texture allows users to have a firm grip, making it extremely good for carrying about. The display is about 15.6 inch and features a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which give about 100 ppi.

The HD resolution screen comes with an anti-glare layer so you can work in bright natural light without worrying too much about visibility. Here the processor provided in an Intel Core i5 5200U of the 5th generation with a clock rate of up to 1.5 GHz and 2 MB cache. There is 4 GB of RAM, but this can be expanded up to 8 GB as there are two RAM slots. The internal hard disk has a capacity of 500 GB, spins at 5400 rpm and features 3 GB/s SATA interface. There is an Intel HD Graphics processor. Since this laptop is not targeted at gamers or movie enthusiasts, there is no dedicated graphics card. The OS is one of the surprises here, as it runs on a Linux x Ubuntu system.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP).  Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
5200U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
