Dell Vostro 3900 review

 

Dell delivers a standard no-frills desktop

Nicely priced ; Plenty of room for expansion ; Decent support options

Disappointing lack of configuration options ; No really compelling features on offer ; Bundled peripherals are uninspiring

This Dell PC is a sound enough budget offering, although there are no standout features here.

The Windows 7 worked without a hitch and I was able to transfer my entire old machine onto the new without any problems.

Dell Vostro 3900

 

It is very quiet, and I don't think it uses much power, takes a while to start up, but works well once it's on for a few minutes. Windows 7 is a plus, as it's the last decent version of Windows still extant. It was also very cheap for an Intel i5, and...

I gave battery life a 10, but this isn't really applicable. Only two USB ports at the front of the tower, while there are more at the back, it's handier to have them here for ease of access. Apart from this, all good though.
