Elegant business beginner. The Dell Vostro is an inexpensive 15-inch laptop for smaller companies and covers all the essentials. It is also wrapped up in a nicely designed chassis. You will have to make some compromises, but we cannot find any serious issues.

Model: The Vostro series has come a long way as a trusted name for laptops built for professionals and businesses in view. The latest Vostro 15 continues to impress as it is revamped as a slimmer and lighter machine yet without conceding on its substance. Built-wise, the laptop’s construction is solid with a polished finish as it is mainly built with aluminium components. Users have a choice of colours on its interior i.e. gold (Jingle) or silver (Era). Its dimensions measure 19.2 x 380 x 252.5 mm and it weighs merely 1.98 kg. For a laptop in the 15-inch category, it's weight is not all that bad but it could be better. Ports are strategically located on both sides; thus leaving the rear of the laptop neat and clutter-free. Carrying around this laptop is convenient and it will surely turn heads with its polished aluminium finish. Its business look is typical for most Vostro series. Performance-wise, it is powered by an Intel Core i7-7500U Kaby-Lake processor and can be coupled with an NVIDIA M940MX GPU. This interesting combination renders the Vostro in some ways bearing the characteristics of a multimedia laptop. Running demanding software and multi-tasking on this processor is a non-issue. In fact, it will even run games at medium to low settings if needed.
Its 15.6-inch display with an aspect ratio of 16: 9 and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixel is incredibly appealing. It is nice that the hinge allows the screen to bend back a full 180 degrees. RAM options are 8 GB of DDR4 RAM (max. 32GB) and storage is available at a 256 GB SSD. Network connectivity is supported by Wireless-AC 3165 and Bluetooth 4.1. The sound quality of the Vostro 15 is rather poor due to the speakers which are placed in an odd location. This has been a problem for many Vostros before this too. Connectivity is aplenty on this machine as it comes equipped with all necessary ports for input and output. For maximum security, a fast touch fingerprint scanner is integrated on board. The 42-Wh battery included is equally powerful considering that it is a business notebook and its runtime remains remarkable thanks to its efficient hardware, most noticeably the Kaby-Lake processor. Certainly, professionals and enterprises will benefit from this as they are power users who require longer productivity. The precision touchpad with multi-touch control is wide and sensitive. The keyboard bundled together is spill resistant and illuminated for use under dim environments. It comes pre-installed with Windows 10 Pro. Living up to the Vostro brand name, this machine is a business notebook standing out among its rivals.
