The laptop that we are taking a look at today houses pretty old hardware, which is all the explanation that you need about what is going on in the laptop industry. With silicon being scarce as of now, manufacturers are turning to older units, which can still be found stockpiled in warehouses, waiting to be used.

The Vostro 15 3515 comes equipped with the power-efficient Zen+ chips, which are now more than two years old, so you cannot expect modern performance from them, that can rival Intel’s Tiger Lake G-series. Still, they will be ideal for daily tasks, checking emails, watching movies, video meetings, and anything like that.

Today we are giving you a quick overview of the Dell Vostro 15 3515 and the Vostro 15 7510.

The 3000-series are usually more affordable laptops. Their weight and height stand at 1.70 kg and 17.5 mm, respectively. It also brings a hinge mechanism that acts as a lever, lifting the rear end, so you get a more comfortable typing angle, while the cooling also gets more access to fresh air.


Display-wise, you get either a 1366 x 768p TN display or a Full HD IPS panel. Both screens have nothing revealed about them, with the brightness, and contrast ratio being hidden. At least you get relatively thin bezels, which make the laptop look modern.

The battery life of this noteooku with ryzen 3 is crazy. Battery can only power for 47 minutes, but it can also power for 7 hours. Same problem is with charging when the 
laptop is in use. I think it's because even with a small load, the processor goes to TurboSpeed ​​and the power consumption is many times higher. Completely unpredictable for me. Constantly humming CPU cooling. I will return the laptop to the seller.
