A new business-focused Dell laptop has hit the Nepali market. The new Vostro 3520 is a 15-inch notebook for business personnel and small enterprises powered by 12th Gen Intel CPUs. Here, we will discuss the specs, features, latest price, and availability of Dell Vostro 15 3520 in Nepal.
Dell Vostro 15 3520 Overview:
Design and Display
As expected of a 3000-series Vostro laptop, the design of the Vostro 15 3520 is not anything to write home about. It comes in a 15-inch chassis that weighs 1.66 kg. Dell offers the laptop in two builds, one with an all-plastic design and the other with an aluminum lid. One thing worth mentioning is the hinge which lifts the laptop’s base slightly when opened. This makes for a comfortable typing experience while also increasing the base clearance of the chassis where air intake vents and dual speakers are located.
It sports a 15.6-inch display with noticeable bezels. The top one even houses a 720p webcam with an integrated microphone. The cheaper models feature a TN panel with HD resolution, whereas higher-end models have 120Hz FHD IPS panels. Both cover 45% of the NTSC gamut, while the IPS panel is marginally brighter at 250 nits.
Performance and Memory
In terms of internal hardware, the Dell Vostro 15 3520 has a lot of options. First, you can choose between 11th Gen Tiger Lake and 12th Gen Alder Lake processors. Then you can go with the cheaper Celeron and Pentium CPUs or the more powerful Intel Core i3, i5, and i7. The highest you can go is the 10-core Core i7-1255U.
On the GPU front, the Vostro 3520 is configurable with up to entry-level NVIDIA MX550 discrete graphics. However, it’s reserved for higher-end models, and the majority just ship with Intel’s integrated solution.
Rest of the Specs
In terms of connectivity, the Dell Vostro 15 3520 features three USB ports, an HDMI, an ethernet, an SD card reader, and a headphone jack. Oddly, Dell has excluded a Type-C port, making you pay extra if you need it. The laptop comes with the Trusted Platform Module 2.0 security chip with an additional option for a Windows Hello-ready fingerprint reader.
