Dell Vostro 3300 in short review

 

Third dimension. Apparently, there is a trend to 13-inch notebook ...

At least in terms of size the Vostro 3300 proves to be the logical continuation of the Vostro family from big to small. In many aspects it resembles its bigger colleagues

Dell Latitude E5420 Review: Solid Office PC

 

Dell claims that even the sub-$600 Latitude E5420 business notebook is made for durability, productivity, security and easy manageability. We'll analyze these claims against our benchmark and real-world tests to find out if this notebook deserves a...

Solid build quality ; Good performance ; Long-lasting battery life (9+ hours)

Fans somewhat noisy when notebook is exerted ; No USB 3.0 ; Subpar audio

The small-business-targeted Dell Vostro 3300 is a compact, stylish-looking laptop selling at a price that's reasonable. If it had a more robust battery, this would be an excellent travel companion.

Reasonable price; compact, attractive design; antiglare screen

Battery life with the included 4-cell battery is disappointing

Dell Vostro 3300 Review - PCWorld

 

At a little over 4 pounds with the bulkier 8-cell battery (5.2 pounds with the power brick), the Vostro 3300 won't strain your shoulder as you lug it along on your daily travels. That weight includes a tray-loading DVD recordable drive, so you're not...

Discrete (if limited) graphics

Audio from speakers is poor

Dell offers a highly functional small-business laptop in an attractive, lightweight package.

Dell Vostro V3300

 

A small business notebook with good looks, sound ergonomics, and fast performance.

The Dell Vostro V3300 offers plenty of performance and style to small business customers for a reasonable price. You’ll just need to make sure to attach the somewhat hefty 8-cell battery to get more than 5 hours of battery life. The similarly priced...

Dell Vostro 3300 Laptop Computer

 

Positioned between the business-targeted Latitude and the mainstream consumer Inspiron lines, Dell's Vostro has always been the type of computer that's half-meant for personal use, half for business: it's casual professional. The Vostro 3300, part of a...

Battery life with the included 4-cell battery is disappointing

The small-business-targeted Dell Vostro 3300 is a compact, stylish-looking laptop selling at a price that's reasonable. If it had a more robust battery, this would be an excellent travel companion.

Dell Vostro 3300

 

Powerful parts are also indicative of poor battery life. If you had only bought the standard 40WH battery (4-cell), the 3300 would be depleted midway through a coast to coast flight (2 hours 45 minutes in MobileMark tests). With the 80WH battery...

Thoroughbred parts. Option for an Nvidia graphics chip. Fantastic user experience. Multiple configurations. Sleek design. Multiple color options

No HDMI port. Standard 40WH provides short battery life

The Dell Vostro 3300 is a speedy SMB laptop that will accommodate any big-league professional, but make sure you buy it with the 8-cell battery.

Dell Vostro 3300 Laptop Review

 

Dell Vostro 3300 has received the user's attention since on sale. Dell Vostro 3300 uses the latest Intel Core i5 processor, DDR3 memory and 7200 RPM drives, weights less than 2kg, also many colors to be choosen, very attractive.

Poor ventilation hole.
