Notebook PC Review: The Dell Vostro 3400

by Eric Grevstad

Eric Grevstad puts the Dell Vostro 3400 notebook PC through its paces and finds a winning combination of power and portability.

Dell's been making the Vostro line of small business notebook PCs for awhile now, but there's nothing stale about the line. This pre-configured model offers a solid mix of power and portability, which should appeal to any small business owner who computes on the run. HardwareCentral.com has the full review.

Something old: "Vostro," Dell says, is Latin for "yours." Something new: one of Intel's latest 32-nanometer-process mobile CPUs, the Core i5-430M, with the chipmaker's Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost technologies. Something borrowed: One of the USB 2.0 ports doubles as an eSATA port for external storage solutions. Something blue: Bluetooth wireless is standard, as is 802.11b/g/n WiFi.

This is not to imply that the Dell Vostro 3400 actually qualifies as a bride. But the odds are pretty good that you can have a long and happy relationship with it.
