Review Dell Vostro 3300 Notebook


New Vostro – The Third. Dell looks to score with Core-i Hardware, the latest Vostro aluminum design as well as a 13.3-inch screen. See how the Laptop performs in comparison to others in its class in our comprehensive review.

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 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


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.

Dell Vostro 3300 - Mind This Business


Slim, sexy and yet solemn enough for your corporate needs. The 13.3-inch Vostro 3300 is the latest member to join Dell's family of small-business notebooks, and to top things off, it is also furbished with an drool-worthy price tag. Wait no further, as...

Designed for small business users, the Vostro 3300 is a welcome blend of stylish design and productivity in an ultra-thin 13.3-inch laptop. More importantly, it also comes with a less demanding price.

Dell Vostro 3300 review


Even so, Dell's new small-business laptop offers combination of hardware and support options well tuned to its target market. With Dell's current discounts, the Dell Vostro 3300 starts at £516 inc VAT.

Overall, the Dell Vostro 3300 hits a solid combination of features in a sleek, compact package. Dell has managed to make an ultrathin small-business laptop that's just a little sexy, but also just boring enough not to attract too much attention.
