Speaking of power, this laptop is just as capable as any other entry-level laptop out there. So the latest office suites and using multiple tabs on browsers won't slow it down, however, you obviously can't expect encoding heavy video or audio within seconds. Also, not that it is intended for multimedia, but watching movies and light gaming should be just fine. The built-in sound is pretty clear and good, but the volume isn't loud enough, and we're not considering that a downside. All-in-all, it's a good 14-inch business laptop in a 35K price bracket.

Dell Vostro 3400 Review

The Dell Vostro 3400 is an affordable 14-inch laptop designed to meet the needs of small business owners and it succeeds in most ways. The overall build quality is pretty solid with one glaring exception: a weak screen lid. If you're a frequent traveler then the Vostro 3400 may not be your best choice based simply on the fact that the screen doesn't feel as durable as other business notebooks we've reviewed. If you're buying the Vostro 3400 as a desktop replacement or take care not to damage the flexible screen lid then you won't have much to worry about. At the end of the day this Dell offers good performance, great customization options and year-round 24/7 support at a reasonable price.

We're biased toward blazing performance, so we like the Core i5- and GeForce-equipped Vostro 3400 despite its slightly steep $824 price. Realistically, most IT managers would opt to save money by configuring a Core i3 model with integrated graphics, which would be fine for most office productivity applications. Either way, the 3400 is one tempting trimline -- a winning balance of portability and power.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


Dell: Dell Inc. is a multinational technology corporation that develops, manufactures, sells, and supports personal computers and other computer-related products.

Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
