Reviews for the Dell Vostro 3700
Source: Hardware Central
The Vostro 3700 is the big-screen desktop-replacement model in the Vostro 3000 Series Dell introduced this spring. With its 16.2 by 10.7-inch footprint and 6-pound weight, you won't want to lug the 3700 with you on airplanes. But buy a laptop bag that can accommodate a large widescreen notebook PC, and the machine is certainly up for the occasional trip to a client site or to shuttle between home and office.

If you're the type that feels desktop PCs are so 1990s, Dell has a powerful new notebook PC that may make you forget about mini-tower PCs for good. The Dell Vostro 3700 likely has a larger, higher-resolution screen than you used in the '90s, and undoubtedly a more powerful processor. And at a starting price of just $629, we're sure it's a whole lot less expensive than any desktop you bought back then.

Small-business owners that sat out the Windows Vista era, take note: Dell has a powerful, affordable machine to replace your aging desktop—and it’s one you can carry with you (well, occasionally at least.) With its big screen and even bigger performance, the Dell Vostro 3700 helps small-business buyers kick the desktop-PC habit. It isn’t perfect, but it delivers a lot of value.

The Vostro 3700 is the 17.3in model in Dell's Vostro 3000 series, and it's the first Dell business notebook to include Intel's Core i5 CPUs. It's a fast desktop replacement notebook that's perfect for office work, yet it's also capable of undertaking CPU intensive tasks such as media encoding and even gaming. We'd prefer 64-bit Windows 7 installed as standard and a backlit keyboard included -- but it has a plethora of features, has a good battery life and considering its large dimensions it's reasonably lightweight.

CommentIntel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
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.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
