Reviews for the Dell Vostro 3360

84% Review Dell Vostro 3360 Notebook | Notebookcheck
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.
Dell Vostro 3360 review – the affordable and portable business notebook
Source: TLBHD English version
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 Vostro 3360 – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English version
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.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
