Dell Vostro V131 review: Dell Vostro V131


Most companies strive to create distinctions between their small-business and consumer laptop lines, sometimes to the point of creating whole new designs that aren't available otherwise. Most of these business laptops aren't of much interest to the...

Offering excellent battery life and processing power in a compact, sturdy design, the Dell Vostro V131 improves on last year's version while keeping a clean look.

Other 13-inch laptops are even thinner and lighter; the matte screen and mono speaker are weak for a laptop this size.

The 2011 Dell Vostro V131 succeeds at being an affordable and powerful update to the 13-inch small-business laptop, adding much-needed battery life and processing boosts. At its lower-priced configurations, it's worth a look for budget shoppers.

Dell Vostro V131


The Dell Vostro V131 small-business laptop has most of the features, power, and battery life of its enterprise-oriented counterparts, yet it won't cost you nearly as much.

Powerful standard-voltage Core i5 CPU. Excellent battery life. Excellent keyboard. Two USB 3.0 ports. Fast spinning hard drive.

Subpar gaming scores from integrated graphics. No backlit keyboard.

Dell Vostro V131 Review: A Good, Cheap Business Laptop


The 13.3-inch Dell Vostro V131 is a solid small-to-medium business notebook with exceptional battery life, a backlit keyboard, and plenty of power to handle any office work. Check out our full review to find out if this is the right upgrade for your...

Good performance ; Superb battery life (9 hours) ; Two USB 3.0 ports ; 15 months of Trend Micro security included ; Comfortable backlit keyboard

Lid bends easily ; Display has a low contrast ratio ; Poorly designed bottom panel ; The Dell Vostro V131 delivers a great balance of price, performance and battery life if you can live less than perfect build quality.

Best budget business laptop


Business users looking to take a light, ergonomic laptop with a long battery life on the road should consider the 13.3-inch Dell Vostro v131, experts say. Although the base configuration sports an Intel Celeron CPU and starts out at $500, most...

Thin and light, second-generation Intel Core processor, good battery life, excellent performance, lots of business and connectivity extras

Poor speakers, not good for gaming, no optical drive, average display

Dell Vostro V131 ultraportable business laptop


Don't let the Dell Vostro V131 laptop's low price fool you: it's state of the art

Nice input ergonomics, two USB 3.0 ports ; Inexpensive for an ultraportable

On the large side of the ultraportable class

You'll have a hard time finding a more affordable business ultraportable than the Dell Vostro V131, though its size and weight stretch the definition.

Dell Vostro V131


Light and powerful, Dell's Vostro range is intended to add a little style to the small business or the home office. The latest member of the family, the V131, is a Sandy Bridge Core i5 machine, one of a new generation of thin and light 13.3-inch...

Light, powerful and portable

Lack of optical drive

There are a lot of 13.3-inch laptops around, all with the same mix of Intel chips. Dell's given the Vostro V131 a distinctive look that makes it stand out from the usual crowd of matte and glossy black machines - but that's really it's only distinctive...
