Dell Vostro 15 5568 (i7-7500U, 940MX) Laptop Review

 

New assets, old shortcomings. We already announced in January that Dell was planning to offer the Vostro 15 5568 with other processors and a dedicated graphics solution. This configuration is now available and we are going to test what this entry-level...

good system performance ; good upgrade options

poor display ; keyboard unsuitable for frequent writing ; limited business features ; bad speakers

The Vostro 15 5568 is still an inexpensive business laptop. The offered performance is appropriate for the low price. The low WLAN performance and the bad keyboard in particular might discourage interested customers. Whether the minimalistic security...

The computer is very quiet, works quickly, starts up quickly. I like the keyboard and this is backlit, so can see easily in low levels of light.

Great looking laptop with the brushed metal finish, nice feel to the keyboard. Quality feels good and comes with the pro version of Windows 10 too. Backlit keyboard very sleek and practical.

Clicking noise on opening during first week or so but this has now stopped.

It's a nice laptop, pretty fast and good build quality. I like the metal case, the back lit keyboard. The screen is really clear due to it being true HD. I might have been expected slightly more from the ddr ram, but overall I am very pleased with it.

The charging point is in a very bad place which will result in broken chargers a plenty and may end up damaging the laptop also.

It is very fast compared with my old machine, it's comfortable to use, and lightweight. I had set myself a budget of about £600 and although this was a bit more expensive, I thought it the best value I found.

I have only owned the machine for a few days so I have nothing bad to say about it to-date.

I've not tried other laptops so have nothing to compare it to, however I am very pleased with how easy it has been to set it up, its lovely keyboard action, and the whole machine. No problems so far.
