Review: Dell Vostro V130 Small Business Notebook

PCWorld: Review – Dell Vostro V130 Small Business Notebook

The reviewer says this new addition to Dell’s Vostro lineup looks great, but scored poorly on benchmark and battery life tests compared to others in its class – and it’s not that cheap at $1068.

“The Dell Vostro V130 is the latest model in the company’s Vostro lineup, joining such earlier entrants as the Vostra 3300 and the Vostra V13. With its snazzy anodized aluminum case, thin profile (a hair over 0.75 inch at its thickest) and widescreen 13.3-inch LED-backlit display, the Vostro V130 covers pretty much all the style bases for a contemporary ultraportable. And a respectable audio system makes it a good choice for multimedia presentations on the road.

But inside that handsome exterior beats…nothing special, performancewise. The V130 scored a humble 77 on WorldBench 6, and ran for a disappointing 3 hours, 37 minutes in our battery life tests, putting it well toward the bottom of the pack, even among ultraportable laptops.’
