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: Dell Vostro V130

 

Dell Vostro V130

Sturdy, thin design; lightweight; excellent keyboard; crisp, matte screen.

Poor battery life; high prices at upper-range configurations; no optical drive.

Dell's thin and extremely portable Vostro V130 is an attractive small-business 13-incher, but an unacceptably poor battery life sinks its appeal.

Dell Vostro V130

 

The Dell Vostro V130 ultraportable has an exquisitely thin profile, but lacks a big enough battery and enough battery life for serious road warriors.

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.

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 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...

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...

Dell Vostro V130 notebook

 

Dell Vostro V130 review: A 13.3in laptop that's slim, light, inexpensive and well performing

Only 1.6kg, thin, well-built, HDMI, eSATA, fast hard drive

Screen is poor, battery is integrated and didn't last as long as we'd hoped, gets noticeably warm, touchpad software was problematic, integrated 3G modem was present in our test unit but is not currently an option for Australian shoppers

Despite a couple of quibbles with its screen and design, the slim and light Dell Vostro V130 is still a top ultraportable notebook that's great for business users. The ultra-low-voltage Core i5 CPU provides much faster performance at a better price...
