Reviews for the Dell Vostro 15 5501

Interestingly, despite having pretty much the same looks as the Inspiron 15 5501, the Vostro 15 5501 has a worse build quality. While the lid and the base are both aluminum, we found the device to be a bit bendable… literally. Also, the smaller battery results in a shorter autonomous time. Honestly, if you’re mostly going to leave your device in your office (or home) there wouldn’t be any problem. But if you are frequently traveling, putting your notebook in a backpack with other objects – be careful.

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