Review Dell Vostro V13 Notebook

 

Attractive but weak. The V13 is one of Dell's Vostro range of sma

Very quiet; Very cool; Very slim; Excellent workmanship; High-quality case material; Well equipped; Good price-to-performance ratio; Matt display; Extensive warranty and support options; Good all-round portability

System performance is only satisfactory; Limited potential for upgrades; Built-in battery; Expensive to replace battery; Battery life is only average

Mainly other 13-inch CULV notebooks; stiff competition at a similar price is offered by the Acer Travelmate 8371, the Asus UL30A and the Dell Inspiron 13z. In terms of appearance, the Vostro V13 is pretty unique at present and perhaps only comparable...

Hands-On: Dell Vostro V13 Notebook

 

Aluminum for Everyone. After the hyped-up netbook a slow trend to ULV-laptops is recognizable. These can be characterized by slim case, low weight, and special CPUs which allow the battery life to keep up with netbooks. Dell now launches the V13 which...

In particular users who want to use the laptop on-the-move and, so, cannot pay much attention to ambient light, will profit from this feature. Reflections and mirror effects are refracted and diffracted by the matte surface and, so, less disruptive....

What if we told you there was a way to have the svelteness and power of Dell's $1,500 Adamo for less than half the price? You'd be interested, right? That's ex...

Dell Vostro V13 Review

 

Much like the Adamo XPS 13 and the Latitude Z600, Dell has created another attractive notebook that is not only more expensive than its peers, but it comes up short in terms of endurance. At $991, only well-heeled business users won't balk at this...

Dell Vostro V13

 

The Dell Vostro V13 is a compact, stylish notebook that could be an intriguing netbook alternative if only the battery life were better.

Svelte design, Solid, Light, Decent Windows Aero performance, Cheap

Non-replaceable battery, RAM or HDD, Relatively poor battery life

Dell Vostro V13 review

 

The Vostro V13 pushes plain Jane laptops to one side

Good screen ; Price ; Design

Although this machine is not going to set the benchmarking world alight, it is a well built laptop with a good screen at an affordable price

Dell Vostro V13 slimline laptop

 

Dell's Vostro V13 is a slim, light and very elegant business notebook

Very slim and light, sturdy, comfortable to use

Battery is sealed inside the chassis, not enough USB 2.0 ports, no digital video output

Dell's Vostro V13 is a strong, comfortable and stylish ultraportable for business users. We like its screen, keyboard and touchpad, but we think the sealed battery design is a drawback. Nevertheless, for $1299 and with a one-year, next business day...

Dell Vostro 13 review

 

The 13in Vostro looks like a Dell Adamo but costs a third of the price. But can it overcome its dull business leanings?

An astounding laptop for the price, but the poor battery life lets it down

Dell Vostro V13 review

 

An Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPU powers the Dell Vostro V13, and its 1.3GHz clock speed and two CPU cores help move things along swiftly. You can multitask, watch high resolution videos or create media-rich presentations without getting bogged down....

You can purchase the Dell Vostro V13 for £422, and this includes a one-year, next business day warranty. We think it's a great model to consider if you're after a slim, light and reasonably powerful laptop with a roomy screen and keyboard. However, we...

Dell Vostro V13

 

Dell's Vostro V13 is a strong, comfortable and stylish ultraportable laptop. And it sells for a very attractive price tag.

Slim, lightweight ; Great build quality ; Matte screen ; Very good keyboard, touchpad ; Battery life

Two USB ports ; No DVD Writer

Sure it has only two USB ports and no DVD writer, but the Dell Vostro V13 is a great option if you want a slim, light, extremely well built, sufficiently powerful laptop with a nice matte screen and a very good keyboard. We highly recommend it for...
