Dell Vostro V130

 

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...

Good looks, plenty of memory and a fast hard disk make this a zippy little workhorse of a PC

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

Dell has delivered a good looking, reasonably powerful laptop at a competitive price and kept it slim and light, but still robust. While it's certainly aimed at small office and home office workers, it also makes an attractive buy for anyone who's...

Incredibly slim, but let down by a poor battery and limited performance

Dell Vostro V130 (Core i5-470UM) review

 

This new version of the Dell Vostro V130 laptop updates the identically named model previously reviewed in PC Advisor, which was itself a successor to the older Vostro V13.

The Dell Vostro V130 is slim, light, tough and powerful enough to make it a really useful business tool. However, the battery life and display performance are sure to disappoint.

An excellent design and great build quality, but the disappointing battery life and average display let it down.

Dell Vostro V130 review

 

The Dell Vostro V130 is well worth a look if you want an ultraportable laptop that's inexpensive, easy to type on and also quite well built. It now runs an Intel Core i5 ultra-low-voltage CPU with decent power for office work and multimedia tasks. It...

Even with some drawbacks (the screen, warmth and battery life), the Dell Vostro V130 is still a 13.3in business laptop to be reckoned with. Its slim profile, light weight and reasonably good performance make it a great tool to use while on the road....

Dell Vostro V130 – review

 

Despite the 'sexy' range of colours, this new Dell laptop is a capable but uninspiring travel companion

fairly lightweight, good value for money, system DVD, range of options

screen, battery life, touchpad a bit annoying

So it's not the most exciting laptop, but a capable and reasonably portable one that does pretty much everything you need it to.

Dell Vostro V130 Laptop Review

 

The Dell Vostro V130 is an incredibly thin, quiet and exquisite 13.3-inch laptop. Business users and travellers will find the laptop fits perfectly with their lifestyle. The only downside is the lack of an optical drive.

Ridiculously good looking, thin and light. Solid aluminium finish and looks sturdy enough to survive the odd drop or two

Come on Dell - what's with the lack of optical drive

At 1.6kg, the Vostro V130 from Dell is only 280g heavier than the MacBook Air 13-inch laptop, comes in Lucerne Red or Aberdeen Silver with an LED-backlit, anti-glare, HD screen with 1366 x 768 resolution.

Dell - Vostro V130

 

Dell hasn't traditionally been renowned for producing good-looking laptops - but all that has changed recently, first with release of the rather attractive Latitude 13 and Adamo, and more recently with the Vostro V130 which emulates ...

The Dell Vostro V130 looks fantastic, its metal chassis and clean lines are very appealing. But the sealed-in battery and its poor performance are significant drawbacks. There's no built in optical drive, and if you want higher specifications you may...

Dell Vostro V130 review

 

Overall, the Vostro V130 seems designed for travellers who don't expect to use their laptop on the road so much as at their destination. It should handle mainstream business tasks, particularly presentations, fine but if performance or battery life...

Dell Vostro V130 review

 

Dell's V130 is the latest addition to its Vostro line aimed at small-to-medium sized businesses. It comes in a thin-and-light format with new styling that draws comparison with the most costly executive systems.

Slim; relatively light; sturdy aluminium case; stylish design Cons: Sealed battery; low battery life; consumer version of Windows

Sealed battery; low battery life; consumer version of Windows

Dell's Vostro deserves praise for its style and build quality, and is one of a few laptops we've seen that's a pleasure to use. However, the sealed battery is a big letdown for business travellers, and a professional laptop should not come with Windows...
