Summary: The body design of the laptop is simply awesome. I don't know why dell discontinued such a good product. It has the common issues of hdd cable burning, battery life and since this is a old model, processor etc. But this 5 rating is simply for its style and body design.
Summary: I just received my Vostro V-13, and I LOVE it!! I highly recommend grabbing one. For the price, this little monster is nothing short of AWESOME! Mine has 4g of RAM and 320 gb of memory, and it's lighning fast! I LOVE the keyboard too. I can type at lightning speed with this little baby.
Summary: The battery was discharged during normal use and did not work anymore. Perhaps for lack of use. Apparently there is no replacement for this battery. If you use the computer on the grid all time, this computer is for you, it has good features. If not, better choose another option.
Summary: By far a perfect laptop for what I needed. Web, Office and mobile - thin, good looking and power behind it. Great buy if you looking for a ultra portable laptop with great performance and stylish look. I will admit the biggest downfall is the battery life...3-4 hrs max. Which based on new ultra notebooks coming to the market these days - is too short. An outlet is never too far away for to long - Taking the laptop as is - it works great.
Summary: I bought one of these used (this model is no longer available from Dell), and I like it a lot. Let me point out right away though it's one bad point: short battery life. 3 - 4 hours for web surfing etc. Less for more demanding tasks like playing video. If you can live with that, I highly recommend it. It's not much heavier or bigger than a netbook. It's wider and deeper but it's really thin, so overall size comes out about the same really.
Summary: Needed an updated, affordable and durable laptop for work. This product was marked "Like New", but I can't tell that it has ever been used! Perfect Condition, Perfect Operation, and Perfect Vendor! Arrived earlier than promised in perfect condition. Would definitely buy from them again.
Summary: I find it absolutely incredible, that Dell can let these stellar machines go, for a mere 350.00 If you poke around, you can find them at this price, though they are becoming scarce. For a few dollars more than a lowly, in-efficient netbook, you can get this Dell V13, boasting a HD 13.3 inch WS display, in a semi-glossy (more matte) finish. It also features a slick, uber-thin brushed aluminum caseing, that is nothing short of gorgeous.
Summary: overpriced due to dell outlet sells this for $325. with $600 you could already buy the vostro v130 with i3 processor. I rate this 5 stars due to the design and weight of laptop is nice and i personally love it due to already having one.
Summary: The first thing to mention is that these units are disappearing rapidly as inventory lowers and Dell stopped production as of May 1, 2011. There were specials on for over a month as Dell popped them out at a ridiculously low $350 US, presumably using the existing tooling until a new model went into production. Like a fool, all my instincts told me I should have bought a few and after receiving mine on May 6th, I realized that I should have bought a dozen at that price.
