Dell Vostro 1540 review

 

Dell's budget business laptop is certainly cheap, but is it cheerful? Mike Jennings pokes and prods the Vostro 1540 to find out.

Review Dell Vostro 1540 Notebook

 

Basic. Dell now has a 15.6 inch laptop made for corporate use cal

Matt screen surface; Easy to access RAM module; Acceptable scope of interfaces; Noise and heat development

Boring design made of plastic; Build quality, haptics; Case stability; No HDD maintenance cover; Interface positioning; Only 12 months warranty at Dell's; Average display rates; Old hardware inside; Short battery life

Inexpensive office laptops from the entry level sector, for example the HP 635 for only 299 euros, the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 with the latest hardware, the MSI A6400 or the Sony Vaio VPC-EH1M1E/W. The Dell Vostro 3550 as the newer, but almost equal...

Good deal

 

Ive bad experiences with HP, so it's good to find a reliable alternative.

This machine runs fast and is quiet. I was SHOCKED when i started it up to find it was almost completely absent of bloatware/crapware

Like a previous review said, the touchpad seems delayed. It dont matter because I use a mounse with it anyways

Plain Vanilla

 

Above poster is on drug$ or wrote a review for the wrong laptop. It does not have a lit keyboard, the keys feels the same as any other laptop i have used, and it does not have a fingerprint scanner! I also would not consider a laptop with an i3 cpu and...

A value considering the specs ; I like the matte black finish

no USB 3.0 ; Why load win 7 x64 on a 3GB RAM system?? Meh, Dell ; Touch Pad seems slow to respond. Like its a half second behind. Hopefully a driver update will fix it ; Standard crapware / bloatware too. Thats why its only $400

Great Price

 

Rubber Front bezel for good grip/prevents fingerprints ; Core i3 is plenty fast ; HDMI output was a very nice bonus ; Love the chic-let style keyboard ; Laptop looks very modern

Speakers are absolute garbage, my iPhone sounds better ; Dell trackpad is ok
