Dell addresses in particular small businesses with the Vostro family. If you are looking for an inexpensive business device with contemporary hardware, you can select either a 15.6 inch Vostro 3500 or the 17.3 inch Vostro 3700.
The 15 inch model with a Core i5 430M processor, dedicated Nvidia GeForce 310M graphic card and a fast 320 GB hard disk with 7200 rpm is put to the test. As typical for Dell, the Vostro 3500 can be configured comprehensively, though. The available options will be dealt with in detail below. Sections that are strongly dependent on the utilized hardware, such as performance, emissions and battery life, aren't necessarily true for other, differently equipped models.
