Our test report reveals whether a matte screen, Core i3 processor and long battery life make the Vostro 2520 a recommendable office laptop.   Dell provides the Vostro 2520 range for frugal business customers. The models of this range cost less than the Vostro 3560 series laptops. The least expensive model of the 2520 range was available for 309 Euros (~$400) at the time of this review. However, it did not include a Windows operating system. Dell sells a pre-configured version over the known internet shops or it can be customized in Dell’s online shop. We tested a pre-configured model. The device we were provided with sports Intel’s dual Core i3-2328M processor and its integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 takes care of the graphics output. The system can fall back on 4 GB of working memory. Data is stored on a 500 GB hard drive. A DVD burner is also installed. We used HP’s 650 (Intel Pentium B970, Intel HD Graphics (Sandy Bridge)) and Asus’ Pro P53E-SO102X (Intel Core i3-2330M, Intel HD Graphics 3000) to classify the laptop. Case The Vostro 2520’s casing is mainly made of plastic. Only the base unit’s top is metal and gives the laptop a much higher quality look. HP’s 650 and Asus’ Pro P53E-SO102X do not sport any metal parts. The Vostro 2520’s casing features a dark, matte gray color, which Dell has dubbed “London Slate”. The silver-gray plastic bezel that surrounds the base unit supplies a color contrast. Regrettably, Dell has decided to not completely rely on matte surfaces. The keyboard’s bezel and the gaps between the keys are glossy and downright attract fingerprints. The base unit makes a robust impression. It only dents marginally under pressure. It yields more intensely when the casing is pressed in the keyboard’s lower left area. The casing’s stiffness is also acceptable in view of the price. It can only be warped slightly when held at its two front corners and produces a noise in that case. The Vostro 2520 does not have to fear a comparison with the Vostro 3560’s casing. Nevertheless, the latter exhibits an overall more stable build. The lid’s back is coated with a ribbed, rubber layer that protects the back from bumps and scratches. The lid is quite easily warped and its back can be dented without much effort. The hinges keep the lid firmly in position. It’s not possible to open the lid with only one hand because the hinges are pulled too tight. The Vostro 2520 features restrained looks The rubber coat protects the lid There is no maintenance cover Connectivity Dell’s Vostro 2520 cannot stick out from HP’s 650 and Asus’ Pro P53E-SO102X in terms of connectivity. None of the laptops sport a USB 3.0 port. If you value an ExpressCard slot and also need USB 3.0, you should look closer at the “bigger” Vostro 3560 model. Left: Gigabit Ethernet, VGA out, HDMI, USB 2.0, microphone in, headphone out Right: DVD burner, 2x USB 2.0 The memory card reader (SD, MMC, Memory Stick) is on the front.   Communication The Vostro 2520 harbors Dell’s own Wi-Fi module, Dell 1704. A Broadcom chip operates on the module. It supports the 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi standards and also supplies the laptop with Bluetooth 4.0. An old acquaintance known from many laptops provides cabled network connections: a gigabit Ethernet chip from Realtek’s RTL8168/8111 family. A webcam is installed in the display bezel. Accessories Dell does not include any accessories apart from a few manuals and quick start posters. Operating System Our test device is delivered with Ubuntu Linux 11.10 preinstalled. If you buy the Vostro 2520 directly from Dell, you can configure it with either Windows 7 or Windows 8. We installed Windows 7 for our tests. The necessary drivers can be downloaded from Dell’s website. We c
