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.

Very Impressive Budget Laptop Package

 

Definitely a good buy. Battery life projected at 8 hours and I easily get 5 hours while browsing and watching video or listening to music. Very compact yet the 14 inch screen is beautiful and the HDMI output supports true 1080 output.

Excellent Battery life ; HDMI Output ; Lightweight ; Fast

Dirt shows easily on the red cover ; Not enough USB ports ; No FireWire port ; No Compact Flash reader (reads a bunch of other memory cards though)

A quiet 64bit laptop that runs cool

 

Very happy with this nice and quiet laptop

graphics are good enough for HD Video playback ; quiet ... very little fan noise c ompared to my previous *NOISY* laptops ; does not heat up much like my previous furnace laptops did ; seems to have pretty good battery life with 6 real hours

no HDD or caps lock LED's is an annoyance ; Silly default function key settings: hitting F2 key by accident kills the wireless! Changed this in BIOS straightaway ; cover is nice but red plastic is easily scratched ; not as superlight as it felt in store
