Dell Vostro V130 Review

thinkdigit.com
20 June 2011
  • Summary: 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 recommend the Vostro V130 for a business laptop.
  • Pros: Affordable, Solid build quality, Lightweight body, Matte display
  • Cons: Low battery-life, No optical drive

  • Excerpt: The Vostro 130’s sharp, super-thin design is an attention-grabber. But for small-business buyers looking for a laptop for a long trip or the long haul, this unit's battery is a deal killer.
  • Pros: Incredibly thin and light, Sharp design, Comfortable keyboard
  • Cons: Battery is not user-replaceable, Short battery life, Mediocre performance

  • Summary: With any ultraportable, there's a delicate balance between power and portability. A notebook needs to perform certain tasks well, but if it uses up its battery too quickly, its usefulness for business travelers is mitigated. While we like that the $928 Dell Vostro V130 has a very slim profile and decent muscle, its sub-3-hour endurance is too short to ignore.
  • Pros: Stylish brushed aluminum design, Less than an inch thick, Loud speakers, HDMI port and added USB port, Runs cool
  • Cons: Battery life too short, Expensive, Long boot time

Dell Vostro V130 review

Pocket Lint
14 March 2011
  • Excerpt: If you need a notebook to get work done, that no longer means it has to be big, boxy and dull. Dell's Vostro V130 is targeted at small business and home office workers but it is also a thin, light and stylish PC. Is it possible to look good and be smart at the same time?
  • Pros: Good looks, plenty of memory and a fast hard disk make this a zippy little workhorse of a PC
  • Cons: Poor life from a sealed battery makes this more of a desktop laptop than a mobile computer, while the single speaker and integrated graphics limit its multimedia capabilities
