Review Dell Vostro 3350 Subnotebook

 

Mobility. The smallest device of Dell's Vostro refresh, the Dell

Design and surfaces; Good interface supply; Chiclet keyboard with illumination; Matt display surface; Good multimedia performance; Convincing battery runtimes

Case's stability; Wobbly display lid; Low contrast and black value; Noise level during load; Speaker's poor sound quality; 12 month warranty ex-factory

Current subnotebooks with a 13.3 inch screen and the latest hardware. Among others, for example, the Acer Aspire 3750 as an affordable consumer-book, the Apple MacBook Pro 13 Early 2011 with a tried and tested unibody case or the Samsung 900X3A...

Dell Inspiron i1470-3282CRD

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our 2009 Retail Laptop and Desktop Holiday Roundup , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

Thin and trim for a 14-inch laptop; attractive design; roomy and comfortable keyboard; surprisingly impressive audio output; touch pad supports gestures, such as two-finger scrolling.

Application performance lags far behind similarly priced laptops; only 802.11b/g Wi-Fi.

With an ultralow-voltage CPU, the Dell Inspiron 1470-3282 runs longer but slower than competing laptops. We're not thrilled with the performance hit, but we still found lots to like about this well-designed, 14-inch laptop.

Review Of Dell Inspiron i1470-3282CRD

 

There is a thin line between notebooks and netbooks. This notebook falls into that category. While the slow processor will make it almost a netbook, there are some more features which will drag this device out of netbook category.Now, a net book is the...

Great battery life, thin, touch pad supports gestures, multi touch scrolling, comfortable keyboard

Too slow, only 802.11b/g Wi-Fi

This laptop is good for basic computing work. A great battery life and features like optical drive will go well with a basic user. But this is certainly not a notebook for gaming enthusiasts.

Review: Dell Vostro 3350

 

Excellent build quality; Ergonomics; Excellent battery life; Comes with service manual

Gets a little hot after some time; Poor speaker quality; A bit expensive

The Dell Vostro 3350 is an excellent portable laptop with rock-solid stability and good performance for most day-to-day computing activities. The 13.3" anti-glare display is easy on the eyes, while the ergonomic keyboard is a joy to use. While the...

Dell Inspiron 1470, a step up from a netbook without compromising on battery life

 

What do you call a CULV laptop that doesn't look like a CULV laptop? Meet Dell's thin and light Inspiron 1470.

The Inspiron offers enough of an all-round package to make it a tempting proposition for an entry-level system or student laptop. At $1199, the price is also tempting, and you could even opt for a lower spec to save $200, if price is a crucial decider...
