Review Dell Vostro 3700 (i7-720QM, GT 330M) Notebook


Vostro New – the Second. New hardware, subtle improvements of the

Very good application performance; Good graphic performance; Well equipped with interfaces incl. eSATA and HDMI; Matt display screen with good illumination

Impractical arrangement of interfaces for left-handers; No independent docking port (only USB solution); Gets very warm under load

To me, this is the best god dang computer ever!  It's awesome portibility and lightweight.  The only god-dang thing it needs is longer battery.   Its really short for me, 5 hours, and needs more hour time.

I own a dell laptop and they are great for the first couple of months. After that the charger won't work anymore because of a problem with the laptops motherboard. It's a very affordable laptop but stay away if you can.
