The configuration is based on a 1.7GHz Intel Core i3-4010U processor with 4GB of RAM (can be expanded since there is one free memory slot), integrated Intel 4400 graphics and a hybrid solution when it comes to storage space: a combination of a standard 500GB SATA hard drive and a 32GB SSD providing decent results for office use. In addition to Gigabit LAN port, there are WiFi (dual-band) and Bluetooth adapters, when it comes to communication. The rechargeable battery offers approximately 4.5hrs of average work, which is not impressive time, but falls into the average of what can be expected in this case. This is very good when it comes to basic laptop configuration of the Vostro 5470 series, where only a few things: touch screen, optional 32GB SSD, 2.1 sound system, deviate from the average.
Positive: Good build quality; good performance; decent autonomy; good touch screen; 32GB of SSD; 2.1 sound system.
