Its minimalist design combined with high-quality materials will appeal to ordinary consumers as well as business clients, and makes a welcome change from the plastic look which usually dominates.

Will This Finally End Netbooks Once and For All?

Gear Patrol
5 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Even though Dell’s surprising anorexic marvel, the Adamo XPS may have garnered much of the company’s recent media attention, we were pleasantly surprised to learn today about the Vostro V13. Built off of the production lessons learned from the aforementioned razor thin Adamo XPS, the Vostro V13 is still a svelte machine at .65 inches thick, and weighs under 3.5 pounds.

Dell Vostro V13 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
12 March 2010
  • Summary: 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 model's price, especially when you're getting only 4 hours of battery life. Small businesses looking to spend their money wisely would be better off with the ThinkPad Edge 13 or ProBook 5310m.

  • Summary: The Dell Vostro V13 is a slimline, 13.3in business notebook with plenty of style and a very sturdy body. It feels great to use and it has a decent amount of power under the hood. Best of all, it only weighs around 1.5kg. It's an almost perfect combination of size, speed and mobility.

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

Good Gear Guide.au
9 August 2010
  • Summary: 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 warranty, it's a sweet proposition.
  • Pros: Very slim and light, sturdy, comfortable to use
  • Cons: Battery is sealed inside the chassis, not enough USB 2.0 ports, no digital video output

REVIEW: Dell Vostro V13

BCW
22 April 2010
  • Summary: What is the Vostro V13 and who is it for? Does it do it well? Where does the Vostro V13 disappoint? Would we recommend the Vostro V13? The biggest criticism of the Vostro V13 is that its svelte design results in poor battery life and the inability to swap out the cell or system memory. Graphics performance isn’t too hot, either.
