Dell Vostro 5590 is an incredibly good looking device, that is somewhat resembling the design features of the premium XPS line up. However, the affordable price tag makes this notebook incredibly appealing to students and business people.
1. Remove the bottom plate
Like most of the laptops that come to the market lately, the Vostro 5590 is not equipped with a service lid compartment. Hence, you need to remove the entire back panel in order to access its internals. Nevertheless, you can easily do so with a simple Phillips screwdriver and a plastic pry tool. After that, you just need to pry the bottom plate with a plastic tool.
Dell has disappointed a little with the battery capacity of this notebook, which is 42Wh. However, the optimizations were on point, as you can see HERE.
3. Storage and memory
There are a couple of options for this device – either you get the version with 4GB or 8GB of soldered memory. Additionally, there is one RAM DIMM for upgrades. The slot itself can fit a maximum of 16GB, which depending on the configuration you pick may result in a maximum of 20GB or 24GB of DDR4 memory, working at 2666 MHz. When it comes to storage, there is the standard 2.5″ SATA drive slot and an M.2 PCIe x4 slot. You can put up to 2TB of 5400rpm HDDs, 1TB of 7200rpm HDDs, 512GB of M.2 2232 drives, 1TB of M.2 2280 drives and 512GB of Intel Neptune Harbor SSDs.
4. Cooling system
When it comes to cooling, the GPU-less iteration of the Vostro 5590 has only one, relatively thin heat pipe. Most of the time we see that to be pretty sufficient, but it is not the most sophisticated system we’ve seen.
