The Dell 3558 is a really budget-friendly laptop. If you’re actually looking for a laptop for the best gaming and bench-marking performances this isn’t the laptop. This laptop is made of purely plastic is not that great in quality. There is a lot of flex on the keyboard region and a lot of key slips. But the screen slips is quite common in most of the budget-friendly laptops.
Dell 3558 comes up with a dotted texture but unfortunately it is really slippery. It is good to note that when using this laptop then make sure that you hold this wraps off correctly so that it does not slip out of your hands.
On the right-hand side of this laptop is where you will find two USB 2.0 ports and a single optical drive. On the left hand side of Dell Insipiron 3558 is where you will find the charging port, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI port and an SD card slot.
If you want to get inside the chassis of this laptop then all you do is just unscrew the ten screws at the bottom of the laptop. Inside you will find 2 DDR3 slot which can be configured to a maximum of 16 gigabytes and an storage bay which can be used for a hard drive or an SSD which is totally your choice.
Moving onto the screen of the Dell 3558 you will get that it is a 720p LED panel and its really good. The overall color saturation and contrast ratio look really vivid. This screen is really reflective so if you’re sitting close to a light source then this screen will be reflecting a lot of light. The screen has poor viewing angles.
The keys have a less travel so you don’t actually get that satisfying kind of experience when you’re typing. Also the keys have a lot of flex. It doesn’t feel that great in quality, it feels a little bit cheap. The best part about the keyboard is that as it has really less travel then you get used to this keyboard then you can type really fast.
The touchpad is really good though not that accurate, but most of the touchpad in the budget laptops are kind of not that good. We get right and left keys on touchpad that are sort of okay since don’t actually have a lot of travel.
The battery life of Dell 3558 awesome as it can get you 4-6 hours of usage. This web browsing and watching some movies.
Dell 3558 comes with an Intel Core i3 5005U which is unhackable series processor which has dual cores with hyper-threading enabled. This means that Windows is going to recognize it as full core processor. Each single code has a frequency of 2 gigahertz and 4 gigabytes of RAM.
The power adapter on this laptop is really tiny with 40 watt hour battery. This battery actually gives up a battery life of around 4 to 6 hours.
Dell Insipiron 3558 is a great laptop due to the battery life and the stream that we get. This laptop also has a different variant which actually comes up with an NVIDIA GTX 920 M which is sort of ok for light gaming and stuff like that. The screen that we get with this laptop is a 720p display so in the end you will be doing some mediocre 720p gaming with the graphics card.
