Review Dell Vostro 1710 Notebook


Large Business Notebook. After we had the Dell Vostro 1310 under

Reasonable price; Good price-performance ratio; Matte display; Robust case, good workmanship; Low system noise

Relatively warm underside; Weak sound; Sensitive glossy lid

Similar to the Vostro 1310, the high-gloss design of the lid does not match the business concept of Dell, because it is sensitive to signs of wear and tear.

This desktop replacement is reasonably light due to a slim chassis design

Great screen ; Powerful performance ; Strong graphics

For the money, this laptop is an absolute bargain, providing excellent performance alongside great usability

Dell Vostro 1710


The Vostro 1710 is what Dell describes as its next generation desktop replacement notebook. The device is ideal for small businesses that need a built-in 10 key numberpad, advanced graphics options, and dual hard drive options.

Far too bulky and heavy to use as a mobile option.

One heck of a laptop!


Again---thanks for offering XP PRO. And FAST SHIPPING !! I received the laptop almost a week before it was due to me. WOW!

Numeric keypad is a BIG plus for me. Fast power up time as well as shut down. Thanks for still offering XP PRO. That sealed by purchasing decision. Great value too

If I have anything to gripe about, it's the weight. BUT--I knew that when I purchased it. It is a trade-off that I'm willing to overlook for what the laptop has to offer

This was a refurbished unit but looked and performed like brand new. Outstanding value for the money

Delivered quickly with all parts/manuals

Heavy, but knew that

I Like It!


I have had the product for several months and am very pleased overall

It's a little heavy to carry around and the shinny top is a fingerprint magnet but that's the extent of my whine

Happy Camper


This notebook shipped much sooner than original estimate. That was a pleasant surprise.

Overall size, screen quality, numeric keypad, number and location of usb ports, sound quality, easy access to boot device options

Shiny lid is visually nice but hard to keep clean. Black keyboard keys are hard to see in limited light conditions
