Review Dell Vostro 2520 Notebook


Low cost by Dell. Dell presents an affordable business and office laptop called Vostro 2520. Our test report reveals whether a matte screen, Core i3 processor and long battery life make the Vostro 2520 a recommendable office laptop.

Difficult maintenance, No USB 3.0, USB 3.0 and an easier way to replace the hard drive
