  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Ease of Use:
  • Quality of Tech Support:

Pros:Reliable and very fast performance at a modest price.

Cons:Chassis a little flimsy. Touch pad had to be replaced.

The Bottom Line: A cost-effective computer that won't force you to cut corners with your work performance. The last of a dying breed of matte-finish screens.


When it came time for me to begin my search for a new laptop, I had a few requirements in mind--good speed, reliability and a matte-finished screen ... at a fair price. After six constant months of use, I believe I found what I was looking for in the Dell Vostro 3550.

The new machine has been a workhorse for me. There aren't a ton of bells and whistles, so if you're looking for a laptop with elite graphics for movie watching or game playing, you might want to go elsewhere. If, however, you want a PC you can count on, the Vostro should be a viable option. The speed has been terrific, even with a half-dozen windows open, and the matte screen has been very easy on my eyes. Heck, even outdoors, the graphics are visible, which is a plus.

The chassis is light, but you can kind of feel as if it's a little flimsy, so be extra careful. We're not talking about a tortoise shell here. Oh, and the fan can be a bit loud at times. All-in-all, though, I've been very satisfied with this purchase. It's not an Apple, but then again, it's also about one-third of the cost. Think Hyundai and not BMW with the Vostro. It's not fancy, but in terms of computing performance, it's been oh so reliable on a day-in, day-out basis.
