I have been using Dell Vostro 3558 since September 2015 and I am here to provide you with a very detailed yet helpful review whether or not you should buy it or not. I am not a detailed tech person so I will just share my experience and not the specifications.
First of all, I would like to start with the kind of work that I bought it for. My parents gave it to me as a present on my birthday as I have been facing problems regarding practicals that were going on in my computer subject in school. I have been consistently using it since that year and for the record, the longest time I didn’t used it was over 7 days whenever I was out of town for any reason.
I mainly had to do only coding and stuffs back then, so It was working great for me. My laptop has 4 GB Ram and 512 GB Hard Disk space which was also sufficent for me. The webcam quality is very poor, so if you are going to use it for Video conferencing – You can look for better. The laptop is a decent good laptop which should come under Notebook category and is good for formal works like document, presentations, etc. The video quality is also okay and should be fine for anyone.
Slowly as time passed, I started realizing that My laptop was not for more high level purposes like gaming, Video editing and other heavy stuffs. So If you are looking for a laptop that you can use heavy softwares like After Effects, Cinema 4d, Blender, Primiere Pro or Games that are more than 20GB in size.
I am not saying you can’t do gaming on this laptop, You can. You can play most of the decent games like CSGO, GTA San Andreas, Mafia II or Just Cause 2. Whereas you can’t play GTA 5 of course in this one. I also played Assassins Creed Black Flag with a bit of a lag but at least I enjoyed the game.
The laptop didn’t became slower day by day as time passed maybe I regularly cleared caches and other stuffs. It has only once been sent to the service centre because of the swith on button broke by my mistake. This one repairment happened in whole five years nothing else. Maybe it’s all about care, I always cared for it. I didn’t let anyone touch it easily.
Overall conclusion, If you are looking for a laptop for learning how to code, watching films, official works, presentations, Video editing (beginner to Intermediate level not for pro) and this kind of light weight stuffs, you can definitely buy this laptop. It will satisfy most of the needs we buy a laptop for except heavy gaming and editing.
Currently I am using this laptop for blogging, managing websites and recording YouTube tutorials. Thanks for reading this article and also bookmark our website!
