Dell Vostro 14 3401 left us with mixed feelings. First of all, for its price tag, the device isn’t bad at all. It feels solid in your hands and you can carry it around without risk of bending if you hold it firmly. The portability of this device is good – it’s compact, it’s light, and the lid has a grippy texture that is definitely a good thing if you like to take your laptop with you frequently. Alas, while the notebook feels solid when it’s closed, we cannot say the same thing about using the keyboard and the touchpad. The keyboard is prone to flexes mostly when you type a bit harshly. The touchpad provides a normal experience while using it but its downside is that it produces a rattling sound when you’re clicking on it. Dell Vostro 14 3401 is a typical office machine for unpretentious usage. Its structure provides solidness when the lid is closed, the display has good viewing angles, the laptop feels snappy while using it for usual daily or office tasks, and the notebook doesn’t cost too much.
