Review Dell Vostro 3350 Subnotebook

 

Mobility. The smallest device of Dell's Vostro refresh, the Dell Vostro 3350, has come in for review. Thanks to a big 8 cell battery, an illuminated keyboard and the latest hardware from Intel and AMD hardware, the mite with a 13.3 inch screen doesn't...

Design and surfaces ; Good interface supply ; Chiclet keyboard with illumination ; Matt display surface ; Good multimedia performance ; Convincing battery runtimes

Case's stability ; Wobbly display lid ; Low contrast and black value ; Noise level during load ; Speaker's poor sound quality ; 12 month warranty ex-factory

The hardware's good performance with a very good mobility

Dell Vostro 3350 Balances Portability, Price, and Performance

 

As all-purpose laptops go, the Dell Vostro 3350--the entry-level model in the current version of Dell's small-business line--leans closer than most to the ultraportable side of the fence. Its 13.3-inch, widescreen, LED-backlit display is set into a...

Compact, attractive, and lightweight ; Excellent battery life ; Mobile broadband module

No dual-band Wi-Fi ; Uninspiring performance

Weighing under 5 pounds, the compact Vostro 3350 offers excellent battery life, but performance disappoints.

Dell Vostro 3350

 

The icing on the cake is the 80WH battery, which is bigger than every other battery in this group. This resulted in the kind of battery life international travelers and road warriors long for—9 hours 36 minutes on MobileMark 2007 tests. That's nearly...

Budget-friendly. Best of breed battery life. Good performance. Excellent keyboard. Two USB 3.0 ports. Fast spinning hard drive

Humongous battery is an eye-sore

The power of the Dell Vostro 3350 small business laptop's second-generation Core i5 processor and more than hours of battery life are well-worth its budget-conscious price.

Business laptop

 

Reviewers say the Dell Vostro 3350 is the best business laptop for small businesses on a budget. This 13.3-inch laptop is reasonably portable at just under 5 pounds, and it includes a number of business-friendly features without breaking the bank....

Good value, second-generation Intel Core processor, great battery life (with optional 8-cell battery), matte display ;

Weak speakers, no backlit keyboard on base model ;

Dell Vostro 3350

 

Business users on a budget, take note: Dell's mid-2011 Vostro is a force to be reckoned with. Engineered with small-business users in mind, the Dell Vostro 3350 offers outstanding application performance, AMD's auto-switching Radeon graphics, and a...

Stylish aluminum finish ; Great battery life ; Auto-switching graphics ; Solid performance ; Backlit keyboard

Narrow viewing angles ; Thick with eight-cell battery ; Loud at times

Solid performance, a durable chassis, and a nice assortment of support and data protection services make this Vostro a compelling choice for any small-business user.

Dell Vostro 3350

 

Available in red, bronze or silver, this aluminium-encased 13.3in laptop is a powerful and versatile machine offering good usability and long battery life.

Attractive, durable aluminium outer shell ; Matt screen and solid matt plastics throughout ; Good keyboard ; Long battery life ; Excellent connectivity including USB 3.0

Heavy ; Bulky with extended battery ; Average screen

With its attractive aluminium shell in a choice of three striking colours, general ruggedness, excellent usability and great connectivity - combined with some decent specs - Dell's 13.3in Vostro 3350 is well worth its asking price, despite an average...

Dell Vostro 3350 review

 

The Dell Vostro 3350 is a business laptop with the light weight, 13.3-inch display, and 8-hour battery life to make it a great candidate for travellers.

Overall, I'd happily recommend the Dell Vostro 3350 to general business users who travel a lot and like a compact laptop, but who would rather shoulder an extra pound of notebook weight than spend several hundred dollars more for a sub-4-pound...

Dell Vostro 3350 Laptop Review

 

The Dell Vostro 3350 is a 13-inch business laptop that is made to measure the needs of those who are after a laptop that can handle a huge amount of data processing.

The i7 processor coupled with such a small screen and relatively light laptop is a winning combination, nearly

A laptop that could potential cost you around about £800 that weighs just a bit too much isn’t really ideal

If you’re after a laptop to crunch those numbers or even just manage the numerous photo albums this is certainly a laptop that you should consider. However, that is if you’re not going to be carrying it around too much considering it’s slightly on the...
