Review Dell Vostro 1310 Notebook

 

Mobile Business. Dell's Vostro series offers robust business qual

Compact case; Robust frame thanks to magnesium alloy; User friendly Interfaces alignment; Four USB ports; Keyboard and touch pad are pleasant to use; Bright display with matte surface and thus outdoor capable; Low noise level; Low surface temperature;...

Sensitive, glossy display lid; Low contrast and viewing angle stability; Limited sound quality

Performance of the Vostro 1310 depends a lot on what the user wants to do with the notebook. The available choices range from cheap Intel Celeron processor with integrated graphics card to powerful T9500 processor also by Intel, with nVIDIA Geforce...

Dell Vostro 1310

 

Small-business owners who would otherwise buy a consumer laptop should consider the full-featured, 13.3-inch Dell Vostro 1310.

Reasonably priced; attractive design; antiglare display; corporate-level security, including TPM; thorough feature set; decent battery life; support package focused on small business

Keyboard feels cheap; cramped touch pad

Dell Vostro 1310

 

Dell's small-business-focused Vostro 1310 has a temptingly affordable entry-level price, but a realistic specification soon brings it into line with the competition.

Affordable and highly configurable, Integrated webcam option, Hard drives up to 320GB available

Relatively bulky and heavy, Base specification is barely adequate for a business user, Price quickly rises as essential options are added

Don't have an IT guy? No problem. Dell makes its Vostro line even better with more à la carte options, a spiffy new design, and plenty of punch to get the job done.

Solid productivity and graphics performance ; Lots of configuration options, including opting out of trialware ; Comfortable keyboard ; Sleeker design than Vostro 1400

Relatively short battery life ; No built-in mobile broadband option

The Dell Vostro 1310 has all the ingredients of a first-class small-business notebook. Its balance of price, portability, and performance, not to mention all the support and configuration options, make it a no-brainer investment.

Dell Vostro 1310 Review

 

When Dell launched their new Vostro line of computers last year the Vostros where immediately praised for meeting the needs of small businesses and budget-minded consumers alike. The Vostro 1310 is the newest and smallest addition to the Vostro family...

Thinner and lighter than the Vostro 1400 ; Reasonable battery life ; Nice screen and easy-to-use media buttons ; Good selection of ports ; Solid performance ; No bloatware ; Available with Windows XP ; Excellent return policy (NO restocking or shipping...

Glossy LCD lid is a magnet for fingerprints ; Chassis plastics feel too thin and hollow ; Mono speaker is painfully weak ; Uncomfortable touchpad buttons ; No S-video or HDMI port ; Price as configured is a little expensive compared to the XPS M1330

The 6-cell 58WHr Li-Ion battery provides excellent battery life for the 1310. With Vista's power management running in "high performance" mode, screen brightness set to maximum and wireless on, the 6-cell battery delivered 3 hours and 18 minutes of...

The addition of the Dell Vostro 1310 ($1,258 direct) to the Vostro line is almost like bringing a supermodel into a team of geeks. Don't get me wrong—the other Vostros are far from underachievers, but they lack the style and the travel-friendliness...

Good start-up machine. Lightweight. New industrial design. Inexpensive. Multiple processor options. Discrete graphics option. Multiple battery options. No "trialware" policy

Single speaker; sounds tinny at higher volumes. Lacks options for a cellular modem

Low prices, multiple configuration options, and a "no-trialware" option should make the Dell Vostro 1310 laptop a start-up favorite.

Dell Vostro 1310 Laptop

 

Dell's Vostro 1310 notebook delivers what business travelers need and nothing they don't, but it could be a touch more portable.

Solid performance; subtle good looks; bright, sharp screen; no trialware

Not as compact as other 13.3-inch notebooks; terrible sound quality from built-in speaker; no modem jack; no mute button

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how
