Dell Vostro 1500

 

A fully loaded desktop-replacement laptop, the Dell Vostro 1500 comes with Dell's small-business support services.

Loads of configuration options. Good performance scores. Excellent battery life. Phone-support services dedicated to small businesses. Option of removing all third-party software.

Heavy for a 15.4-inch system.

Review Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop

 

Take a current Inspiron notebook providing high-quality component

Schlichtes, kühles Business Design; Sehr robustes und stabiles Gehäuse (Alu Chassis); Robuste und angenehm zu bedienende Eingabegeräte; Display mit guter Helligkeit und matter Oberfläche (Outdoortauglich!); Auch höher aufgelöste Displayvarianten...

Mit einem Gewicht von 3.3kg schon relativ schwer; Mäßiges Display hinsichtlich Farbdarstellung und Blickwinkelstabilität; Displayverschluss etwas unpräzise; Kein digitaler Bildausgang (DVI, HDMI); Kein Docking Port

Dell Vostro 1500 Review

 

The 1500 caries forward what can only be described as "traditional dell design" with simplified lines. In short, the new Vostro notebooks look identical to the current generation of Dell Inspiron notebooks ... but Dell engineers have stripped the...

Fast Core 2 Duo processors, and up to 4GB of RAM provide plenty of system performance ; Dedicated graphics option performs well ; Still available with XP and zero bloatware ; Solid build quality and sturdiness ; Good keyboard and touchpad

Not-so-stylish design ; Lower-resolution screen isn't great ... select the higher resolution option ; Average battery life ; A bit bulky and heavy for a 15.4" notebook ; Bad location for built-in speakers

Bottom line, the Vostro 1500 is a solid notebook at a value price ... and we can't help but say that black is indeed beautiful

Dell Vostro 1500 User Review

 

Note: Since this machine was purchased, Dell has increased the price of this computer

Tough construction ; Many configuration options ; XP available preinstalled ; Good keyboard ; Quiet ; Comprehensive manual ; Fast support

On the note of the manual, it is impressive by today’s standards. It's 222 pages long and covers everything that a basic user could likely need. In the second half of the book is the shortened service manual, which includes how to remove and install...

Dell Vostro 1500 Review

 

The Dell Vostro 1500 is a 15.4" notebook geared towards the small business market buyer. Since Dell offers such a generous 30-day satisfaction back guarantee and fast shipping of the Vostro 1500, it seems to be just as popular with consumers.
