Review Dell Vostro V130 470UM Subnotebook


Takin' Care of Business in Style Professionals don't want a dingy-looking, plastic-covered bulky laptop ruining their otherwise sophisticated impression at a meeting. So, can the thin Vostro V130 give you an air of style while facilitating your workflow?

Sturdy, stylish case, Decent performance, Speedy hard drive, Little exhaust, Very good touchpad, Good keyboard, Perfect port placement, High-resolution webcam (1.9MP), Loud, decent speaker, Matte display, Recovery & Software CDs/DVDs, Compact, quiet,...

Dell Vostro V130 short test


Travel in Style Business clients who are looking for a stylish mo

The battery life has not improved when compared to the V13 (WLAN 3:10 hours). The system performance has increased however. Because of the limited battery capacity of 30Wh we are not expecting any significant improvements for WLAN and idle times when...

Dell Vostro V130


The Dell Vostro V130 is the latest model in the company's Vostro lineup, joining such earlier entrants as the Vostra 3300 and the Vostra V13. With its snazzy anodized aluminum case, thin profile (a hair over 0.75 inch at its thickest) and widescreen...

Fairly thin for its size, metal case ; Good-looking notebook with solid AV features

A tad pricey with the solid-state drive ; Subpar performance and battery life

Handsome and thin, the V130 is well suited for multimedia presentations, but poor battery life and mediocre performance drag down its overall score.

Dell Vostro V130 Review


With any ultraportable, there's a delicate balance between power and portability. A notebook needs to perform certain tasks well, but if it uses up its battery too quickly, its usefulness for business travelers is mitigated. While we like that the $928...

Stylish brushed aluminum design, Less than an inch thick, Loud speakers, HDMI port and added USB port, Runs cool

Battery life too short, Expensive, Long boot time

Dell Vostro V130


The 13.3-inch remains intact from its predecessor and is limited to the same 1,366 by 768 resolution. Higher resolutions can be had if you're willing to pay the heavy premiums for the Sony Z1390X (1,600 by 900) and X301 (1,440 by 900). The screen is...

Exquisitely thin. Sturdy. Fantastic keyboard and mouse buttons. Fairly priced. Fast hard drive. Better-than-expected feature set

Small battery yielded paltry battery life. Battery is not removable

Although the Core i5 processor and HDMI are notable additions, the Dell Vostro V130 is tough to recommend as an ultraportable with only 3 hours of battery life.

Dell Vostro V130 Review


The Dell Vostro V130 appeals to a niche audience looking for portability and style at the cost of pure performance. While it does well in the design, build quality and portability areas, its poor battery life is unforgivable, making it hard for us to...

Affordable, Solid build quality, Lightweight body, Matte display

Low battery-life, No optical drive

Gadgetell Hands On: Dell Vostro V130 notebook


We have spent some quality time with the Dell Vostro V130 notebook over the past few weeks, and while we are still putting our thoughts into words, we did want to share some images of the notebook itself. And without giving away all that much, we will...

Laptop Review: Dell Vostro V130


Physically, the Dell feels comfortingly solid. The cover opens quickly and simply -- no latch. Unlike one or two other machines I've tried, the V130 "kept on ticking" when I picked the system up and even shook it slightly -- kudos to the disk...

Expert Review


The Vostro 130's sharp, super-thin design is an attention-grabber. But for small-business buyers looking for a laptop for a long trip or the long haul, this unit's battery is a deal killer.

Incredibly thin and light, Sharp design, Comfortable keyboard

Battery is not user-replaceable, Short battery life, Mediocre performance

Quick Review: Dell Vostro V130 13.3-inch Notebook


The Dell Vostro V130 has just launched and we take the time to see what this more budget friendly laptop has to offer.

If you're looking for something for work, something that can be taken around easily, something that is going to be easy to travel with, the Vostro series looks the goods and the V130 is a great part of that series with its feature set. For most,...
