Dell Vostro 3460 notebook on sale for £311

The Vostro range from Dell is a no-frill laptop range dedicated to small and medium businesses. The Vostro 3460 is the entry level model and is on sale from Dell for £311 including delivery.

The laptop comes with a two-year next business day service, better than the competition. It also runs on an Ivy Bridge-based Intel Core i3-3110M processor clocked at 2.4GHz with 3MB cache with two cores.

Other features are 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard disk drive spinning at 7,200RPM, a DVD writer, a 14in 1,366 x 768 pixel display (which should make the laptop more portable compared to its predecessors which sport a bigger 15.6in display), Intel HD 4000 Graphics, Windows 8 Pro (rather than the standard edition), one year subscription to McAfee SecurityCenter, a backlit keyboard, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and a 6-cell battery.

The Dell Vostro 3460 weighs a mere 2.25 Kg which is just outside the Ultrabook upper limit. It also comes with a quick recovery button, a card reader, VGA/HDMI ports, three USB 3.0 connectors and an Ethernet one. Rivals to this laptop include the HP 655 and the Lenovo Ideapad S400.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
