Very decent laptop

 

This is one really great laptop which I would recommend to any business/home user due to its tremendous flexibility. And for the non windows users out there, yes, it totally works.

Excellent design, with a really decent hardware set

Excellent Laptop

 

Great bang for the buck. I considered purchasing other alternatives but this came out cheaper and with better/faster components. It's durable, and feels solid. Definitely recommend to check out.

Great price, fast, long battery life

Nothing significant

More Bang for the Buck

 

Overall we have found this to be a great system with a little flair, while not as sturdy as the Latitude line the Vostro 2510 is definitely worth haveing

Beautiful System with plenty of upgrades available. The new features like slot load DVD mean no more broken trays. The 2510's sleak design makes it pleasing to the eye. Have ordered several of these systems and have had no complaints or problems. This...

The gloss finish WILL get scratched fairly easily so don't be supprised when it does

WOW!!!!!!

 

Just buy it!

My dad got this for work and after play with it, it's extremely fast! The only con is that it's XP. That's the only reason my dad got it: XP for free. I bet it would be even faster if it was Vista, but as usual, XP wins again. Luckily, XP will be...

DVD drive is the type without the standard mechanical drawer. Hope this is not a problem issue in the future.

Value packed system and easy to operate with the Dell Assistance software. Attractive clean look and includes a web cam

The location of some of the external connections are not as convenient as previous models

Fast and Powerful

 

Would buy again; it's great.

The Vostro 2510 is head and shoulders better than the laptop it replaced and is every bit as useful and fast as our two year old Dell desktop. A huge plus was being able to get Windows XP Professional (our desktop has XP MediaCenter). The screen is...

The Blu-Ray drive price of $500 was too high and we demurred. Blu-Ray should have been priced at less than $100

Consumer review by:

Powerful, good price, but some design flaws

 

Also not sure why the keyboard is laid out differently from my last Dell. they should stick with one layout.

It is as fast as a similarly-priced desktop, really closing the gap between laptops and desktops. It is thin, light, and the screen is beautifully bright

USB ports are only on the sides, and headphone jacks are in the front. So if you want to type or use a mouse, best not have anything plugged in! I do not understand why it is designed this way. Also, no emergency eject pinhole for the DVD, so you may...

Powerful and Durable

 

I have been around technology my whole life and this Dell Vostro 2510 Notebook has great features and excellent build quality, I am very impressed. Unlike most other Buisness notebooks that feature a boring black this 2510 is red what a great change...

The Vostro 2510 offers very good performance and has great features like a standard NVIDA graphics card. This laptop when ordered with 4GB of ram really moves. Using Adobe CS3 Suite is a breeze including programs that typically "suck" alot out of a...

I wish it had a mouse feature for fine tuning like the little red ball some laptops have
