Review Dell Vostro 3700 (i7-720QM, GT 330M) Notebook

 

Vostro New ? the Second. New hardware, subtle improvements of the ...

Very good application performance ; Good graphic performance ; Well equipped with interfaces incl. eSATA and HDMI ; Matt display screen with good illumination

Impractical arrangement of interfaces for left-handers ; No independent docking port (only USB solution) ; Gets very warm under load

Reasonably priced entry-level notebooks in the 17" class with modern hardware, for example HP's Probooks

Dell Vostro 3700

 

With its big screen and even bigger performance, the Dell Vostro 3700 helps small-business buyers kick the desktop-PC habit. It isn't perfect, but it delivers a lot of value.

Excellent performance; Nvidia GPU; dedicated support hotline; lots of features for the price

No Blu-ray or embedded WWAN options; weak speakers; bland design

The Dell Vostro 3700 is a feature-rich portable that delivers more than enough performance without breaking the bank. It may have you putting your desktop PC out to pasture for good
