Dell Vostro A860
Reviews for the Dell Vostro A860
Source: Inside HW Archive.org version
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.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
