Reviews for the Dell Vostro A860

Dell Vostro A860
Source: Inside HW English
We got our Dell Vostro A860 without any “gifts” in the package but many retailers have noticed that this model should be better with more RAM and webcam, so it is most likely that you will find this model in package similar to that one. With more RAM and webcam this notebook is one of the Best Buy models but Dell Vostro A860 has another ace up his sleeve: 3 year warranty period in some countries. With all its advantages and imperfections Dell Vostro A860 can be very interesting to business users that are not easily impressed with GHz mark attached to large numbers and powerful graphics cards and “stuff”. For business users that need simple and reliable companion for a very reasonable price US $400 Dell Vostro A860 can be the right choice.

It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers).

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
