The Amazon Prime Day deals sale is one time of year where you can find cutting edge technology for cheap and the Dell Prime Day Sale is getting in on the action by slashing the price of the Vostro 15 5501 business laptop from over $1,200 to just $700. It’s a portable computer with a great display, high-speed processor, plenty of memory, and a fast storage drive to keep the whole system snappy and responsive. It’s now super affordable too.
Dell’s mainstream line of laptops is dominated by its popular XPS range, and those laptops are an excellent example of what Dell can do, but they aren’t all that’s worth considering. Where those laptops are designed to be as stylish as they are functional, the Vostro has a much-more professional slant to its case, component choice, and look. It’s a clean, robust design, with a durable aluminum chassis that has been put through 14 different military-grade tests to ensure it can withstand the bumps and drops that you might experience when taking your work on the road with you. It also uses smart thermal detectors to intelligently adjust cooling performance to the environment it’s in, thereby keeping performance as high as possible, without leading to excessive noise.
Whether you’re crunching numbers in a spreadsheet or watching Netflix when the workday is done, the Vostro 15 can handle it with ease. Leveraging its 10th-generation Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of high-speed memory, it has all the power you’ll need for everyday tasks. There’s no bundled graphics card, so this isn’t a laptop that will be great for gaming, but its onboard GPU is more than enough for older e-sports games if you want to have a little play in the off-hours. Unlike some laptops, this one has plenty of ports to connect all your accessories, too, including a USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 connector, a pair of USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, an HDMI 1.4b output, a Gigabit Ethernet connector, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
You get all that for just $699 — that’s over $500 off of its usual asking price. The Vostro 15 is a versatile and capable laptop that will handle almost any task with ease, while handling any physical stresses that might come its way during a commute. Need a new right-hand gadget for your workday? This is the laptop for you.
