Review Dell Vostro 3460 Notebook

 

Compact Office worker. The successor of the Vostro 3450 (Sandy Bridge, AMD Radeon HD 6630M) comes with an Ivy Bridge CPU and Nvidia's GeForce GT 630M GPU. Our review shows whether the Vostro 3460 can outperform its precursor using this combination.

Four USB 3.0 ports, Matte screen, Swift hard disk, Four USB 3.0 ports aren't seen every day. The matte surfaces of both the chassis and the display are pleasing

CPU's turbo only works for a short time during load, Dark, low contrast screen, Fairly loud without load, A brighter, higher contrast screen

Dell Vostro 3460

 

If you're after a laptop that can handle all the work you throw at it, and a little play along the way, then this laptop is certainly one to consider. It features a great array of connectivitty ports and hardware all for under £400.

Great value for money, Includes fingerprint security & 4 USB 3.0 ports, Strong design

Touchpad click sensitivity is below par, No auto-brightness keyboard light
