The Dell Vostro 15 5000 Series, an All Business Laptop, Does the Work Without Expense


Dell offers a new Vostro model, the Vostro 15 5568, as a new edition to its Vostro lineup designed for business. It’s nothing fancy, heck, but inexpensive and chock full of hearty specs. The 15-incher has been specifically designed for smaller companies, business individuals, and those who require a laid back laptop that seems to cover all the essentials.

When the Vostros 15 comes around the corner, don’t expect to find anything super sleek or fancy looking, like countless other Dell models sport within their specific niche. You see, the Vostros 15 design is more about strength in its build, as well as internal power. When discussing a business machine, one that’s considered a workhorse at that, there is a huge market out there for a good ol’ machine -nothing too fancy, nothing with confusing bells and whistles, gimmicks, or flashy exterior. Dell came in with the Vostros 15 5568 with a 15-inch LCD screen, a solid aluminum chassis, a weight of 4.36 pounds, and just .98 inches at its thickest point.

First and foremost, the Vostros 15 is a business workhorse, stocked up with I/O connectivity for that office environment. Although nothing extravagant on the graphics front, the laptop does sport some pretty good processing specs. Speaking of, the power inside the Vostros 15 includes up to an Intel 7th Gen Core i7-7500U CPU processor, a dual-core, featuring four threads. It also includes up to 256GB of storage, and 32GB of memory. As far as the GPU goes, Intel integrated its HD graphics 620 card, along with an external GPU, the Nvidia GeForce 940MX 4GB GDDR5. It’s not a fast flowing discrete GPU, but, just because you can’t game hard on the Vostros 15, doesn’t mean you can’t excel at Excel on the daily.

Ports are very much on the healthy side, practically double what you would find in an simpler laptop. This is designed for productivity, and so the essentials are not barren whatsoever (this is important, as you’d be surprised how many $1,000+ ultrabooks come with 3 or 4 ports). Packed more as an ultrabook would be, the Vostros 15 5568 has an SD card reader, a USB 2.0, 3 USB 3.0s ( 1 with Powershare), a VGA port, Kensington lock, AC power adapter, Bluetooth 4.2, Ethernet, HDMI port, and a headphone/microphone combo jack.

Luckily, the option of a backlit keyboard helps consumers further customize their machine, and the numeric keypad on its precision touchpad are notably comfortable among Dell laptop users. Dell pretty much customized this laptop for the real world. It’s designed for anyone who needs to achieve practically anything. This means it can stand multiple environmental factors, has a lovely and strong build, and its 43Whr battery grants a typical 6 hours to 8.5 hours when utilizing modest video playback. If you're interested in a more than decent office notebook, the Dell Vostros 15 5568 starts at $660.00.
