Summary: Small-business customers looking for an affordable, durable, and secure 15.6-inch business notebook will like the Dell Vostro 3550. This $682 laptop also provides good sound, whether you're listening to tunes, giving a presentation, or chatting via Skype. Overall, we prefer the sleeker brushed-aluminum finish on the HP ProBook 4530s, which, for $50 more, adds more power with a Core i5 processor and a larger 500GB hard drive.
Pros: Durable design, Large touchpad, HD-capable webcam, Two USB 3.0 ports, Loud speakers
Cons: Drab design, Need nine-cell battery for longer battery life, Poor color saturation in webcam
Conclusion: Dell has designed an ambitioned office/multimedia hybrid with the Vostro 3550. Not every manufacturer has the courage to try themselves on a blend of matt display and strong midrange components. A fusion of AMD's Radeon HD 6630M and Intel's Core i7-2620M ushers the user quickly through their routine. At the same time, Dell hasn't forgotten portability.
Pros: Good connectivity, Keyboard light, High CPU performance, Matt surfaces, Large touchpad, Fast HDD, Dell doesn't use a sensitive high-gloss finish. Matt surfaces are dominant.
Cons: Average display contrast & black value, Very audible during load, Warm wrist-rest, Yielding keyboard, Wobbly lid, Poor sound
Summary: It's hard not to like the Vostro 3550. It looks good and feels comfortable to use. We like its backlit keyboard and huge touchpad, and it has a useful array of ports along its edges. Best of all, it has fast performance and long battery life thanks to the Sandy Bridge Core i7 CPU and 9-cell battery.
Excerpt: The standout of these features is Intel's second-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, which gives the Dell Vostro 3550 plenty of speed and, in conjunction with an optional 9-cell battery, a very long life away from a power outlet.
Conclusion: The Vostro 3550 is powered by a 2.30GHz Intel Core i5-2410M processor as well as 4GB of RAM. Compared with your normal typical family laptop / desktop, the Vostro 3550 definitely out performs most. We’re running Windows 7 64-bit Professional Edition on the 3550 which came pre-installed for us. We tested the boot time of the Vostro 3550 as were quite impressed.
