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 Archive.org version
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 Archive.org version
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.

AMD Radeon HD 7670M: Renamed Radeon HD 6650M and therefore still produced in 40nm.

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

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
