Display and Design

The Dell Vostro 3550 flaunts a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit which offers a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels and has an Anti Glare coating that allows you to stare at the screen and work for long hours without troubling your eyes. It is embodied in a sturdy 34.5mm thick outfit which has a weight of 2.4kg thereby posing problems in terms of mobility.

Processor and OS

The Dell Vostro 3550 boasts of a mighty 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor from the 2nd generation and based on HM67 Express chipset. Such a profound processor comes as a surprise in this price range. It is supported by a 2GB DDR3 RAM which is a slight disappointment but can be expanded up to 8GB via the 2 user accessible DIMM slots. It manages rich graphics with the inbuilt Intel HD 3000 GPU and runs on 64 bit Linux OS.

Camera and Storage

The Dell Vostro 3550 carries a 1.3MP webcam paired with digital microphone so that you can have fun while enjoying video calls with your friends and colleagues. For storage purposes, it has the conventional 500GB SATA HDD. The DVD RW Drive allows you to transfer data via disks.

Battery and Connectivity

The Dell Vostro 3550 features a 6 cell Li-ion battery which promises to render uninterrupted service for a maximum period of 3 hours. On the connectivity front, it supports features like Bluetooth v3.0, Ethernet port, WLAN, 1 USB 2.0 port, 2 USB 3.0 slots, HDMI out, digital media reader and VGA port.


If you are looking for a laptop that allows you to carry out the basic business needs and doesn't burn a hole in your pocket, the Dell Vostro 3550 is worth considering. The presence of Intel Core i5 processor is a real surprise in this price range. It flaunts a 1.3MP webcam and 2 advanced USB ports as well. However, to make up for the price, Dell has skipped a good RAM, a user friendly OS and a portable outfit.

    Awesome Laptop .. Good Buy

    Overall: Product is amazing .. Very Good Packing as usual .. Only issue was with delivery. Had a little hiccup with Flipkart .. That's why i gave a 4 rating.

    Business Class Laptop for around 37000 with very good configuration. comes with 2 GB RAM but there's a unused slot for future upgrade. Keyboard Layout and Ergonomics is really good. Trendy look for a Commercial series laptop.

    It comes with Ubuntu which has all the features of windows. I expected to see some mediocre version of Linux. But was really surprised to see the laptop loading with Ubuntu with all the drivers already installed.

    If you're installing Windows, it's very easy to download the Drivers from Dell Support page using the Service Tag number of the laptop.

    Battery Backup is very good. I'm getting atleast 3-4 hours backup with normal usage.

    Aluminium Casing of the Laptop is super sturdy and it's got 2 USB 3.0 ports and the laptop does nt heat up much.

    Only downside is the Onboard Graphics .. OVERALL it's a very good buy !!!
