Reviews for the Dell Vostro 3360
Slimmed Vostro. Dell has not only reworked its smallest, 13 inch scion from the business sector, it has also been put a radical diet. This leads to a mostly successful symbiosis of office laptop and ultrabook that will particularly appeal to students and business travelers.
Of course, it has its issues, with the poor battery life as a main concern, but for the money, you’ll hardly find a better business 13.3 inch laptop right now, although you should at least consider 13.3 inch ultrabooks as well if you’re willing to spend close to $1000 for your next notebook.

Yet, despite its average ergonomics and display, the Vostro 3360 is a solid all-rounder. Good performance is married with reasonable reserves of stamina, and the asking price is low for a laptop of this specification. Small businesses, students and just about anyone seeking an inexpensive ultraportable would do well to put the Dell Vostro 3360 on their shortlist.

Dell has given the Vostro range the Ivy Bridge treatment to produce the all-new Dell Vostro 3360. The Dell Vostro 3360′s performance is fine for most uses, but the fact that the machine doesn’t excel in any category means it might be worth upgrading to the full-blooded 15-inch Vostro 3560 for a better all-round package.
