Summary: I got a 3460 with 6gb and the i5 from work. I wanted a go to conference machine to replace my heavy older laptop. After the first few days it seems to be working well. The finish is nicer than I expected from the picture - I got the grey/silver - and it feels lighter than I expected. I loaded all my software including statistical software on it. It is window 7 professional. My new desktop is windows 8 and I can't stand the new os.
Summary: I had a Latitude D830 for 4 years and I was absolutely satisfied with that, then I bought Vostro 3460 just because I needed a laptop with good performance. The laptop is fine in case of performance but I think the body parts are made out of the lowest quality materials ever! After three months, I realized that the color of body panel below the keyboard, where you usually put your hands during typing, is changing.
Summary: I bought this as an upgrade to my 3450. I was happy with my 3450 and when I found a 3460 with Windows 7 and other things I wanted I got it so I donu2019t have to deal with Windows 8 for at least a couple of years unless I want to.
Summary: Bought this with high hopes since I have had a vostro 1700 series laptop for years. The only reason I got a new one is size and my other was just worn down. The 3460 is sluggish and unstable .
Summary: The Vostro 3460 is by far the best laptop I've ever had. I'm also happy to be running Windows 7 (vs 8). When I purchased this laptop, I entered the features I wanted on the Dell store site, and this is the ONLY one that had my desired features: light/small, high resolution display, 1 TB HDD, fast/responsive, lighted keyboard, etc.
Summary: Vostro 3460 is a combination of beauty and brain. Previously I was using Inspiron 14z 2011 model, Vostro 3460 just added the nVidia GeForce GT630M... but performance is way better than Inspiron 14z.
Summary: This was a good purchase for a business, since it covers all the basics well and came with simple and easy to use restore if things went wrong. But you can't get it with Windows 7 now which is basically a requirement for any proper business.
