Review Dell Vostro 1000 Notebook

 

Low Price Vostro. Since last year Dell has equipped its notebooks ...

Quiet; Matte screen

Old-fashioned look; Heavy; Very short battery runtime of the 4-cell battery

The speakers are enough for providing some sort of sound, but we don't recommend putting them on maximum volume. In this case the high tones turn into rasping wheeze

Dell Vostro 1000 Notebook Review

 

Dell seems like it might have done itself with its new budget breaker 15.4" screen with an AMD Turion Processor. There is not much to this laptop that would dazzle anyone except the price. Simple Look, Simple Notebook, Simple Price

Not a whole lot to say on this one. Its pretty easy to figure out what is going on with this laptop. If you need something to go from A to B, be lightweight, simple, and just need something to plug up and work for simple applications, you probably want...

I did not think I would like Vista, but actually, It seems to be a ok program. I'm not going to say it is better than Windows, but once you get used to it, it runs very well with a big enough hard drive.

Really nice looking computer, great features, great extra's, everthing is really good.

At first, I kept having a thing pop up at shut down because of the Norton and Computers AntiSpyware, but it has since pretty much come to a holt.

Excellent budget lapop

 

Absolute bargain for the price. Compares well with laptops that cost twice as much!

Excellent budget laptop. AMD processor is far superior to comparable Celeron D processors.

Built in speakers are next to useless as they pop and crackle at even low volume.

A great deal

 

The Voltstro 1000 computers are a great value. We puchased 2 of them and have been impressed with the durability, speed and price. We have not seen any other laptop that will compete with these for price per performance

Computer use expesscards for expansion, etc. These are a little hard to find. Would be great if the older PCMCIA card and express cards both could be used.

Amazing, except for one flaw

 

For the price, I don't think this computer can be beat. However, you'll probably want external speakers if you want to fully enjoy music or movies. Great laptop!

The Dell Vostro 1000 is fast, light, has a good screen, and the graphics card has handled most of what I have put on it. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion even works. I would definitely recommend this laptop to a friend. However, there is one small-ish...

The speakers... they're horrible. Mine even make odd popping and crackling noises when any sort of audio is playing. I think that the popping and crackling are due to some sort of defect. I'll probably send it in for repair or replacement, sometime.

Love it

 

I would like to purchase another one but do not want Vista.

Solid machine that does not have all of the clutter of other machines. Very fast with XP installed. Good screen, fast speed

Excellent buy!

 

Excellent value. It's as good as my Latitude and better that my Inspiron. I just needed a cheap machine for web surfing and this really fits the bill. The key board is responsive - big screen. I got the extra stuff (ram etc) but don't know that I...

Haven't found any yet.
