I am currently writing this review from a Dell Vostro 3550. And so far, I LOVE IT!
Recommend this product?
For light gaming (Minecraft), the Dell Vostro is awesome.
For work, everything from word to powerpoint is fluid.
I bought this laptop in September of 2011, and it has run perfectly since the first day.
It was on sale for a great price, and that is the reason I bought it. Just a week after I bought it, the sale ended, and the price went up to $700!
This computer is used almost every day. I take it to work with me, and I always hear compliments. The compliment I get the most often is "That Looks So Crystal Clear", referring to the stellar screen.
My favorite part is the keyboard. There are basic functions at the top, using the Fn key. The most usefull function is the brightness settings. But what I love most about the keyboard is the backlights. I can work in the dark, and not strain to see the keys. I personally love to work in the dark, because I feel undisturbed by the light.
All in all, I love this Dell Vostro 3550. I would highly reccomend this to a friend, and I plan to buy another one if it goes back on sale.
