Dell Vostro 3350 sign, an ultra-portable, originally designed for business, but who can claim to meet nomads in search of a 13.3-inch rugged and powerful.
The Vostro 3350, also known as V3350, presents an elegant way. In the grip, you do not notice any problem finishing, if it is a cover which shows a little soft with the feeling of robustness that emerges from the rest.
The hp pavilion dv6keyboard is chiclet keys made. They are well proportioned and well placed, providing a flexible and instinctive strike which minimizes failures and makes use pleasant.
The multi-touch touchpad also won favor with our correct size as much as glide nice and accurate. To avoid spoiling anything, the buttons are well established and do not give the impression of softness that sometimes found on other models.
Webcam (720p) capture movement so a little fuzzy. For the rest, it works wonders. It offers a good level of detail in the dark without burning white. The colors are well rendered. In short, it is an excellent model.
Despite the 13.3-inch size, the connection is complete. On the left are two USB 3.0 ports, and a DVD burner drive. On the right place the HDMI and VGA outputs, a USB 2.0/eSATA combo port, and microphone and headphone jacks. The SD card reader is placed before the power plug and on the back.
The ventilation system V3350 is quite effective. Even full stress components, the machine does not exceed 40 ° C. We appreciate unless he evacuates the hot air on the side and the rear. This may make unpleasant use when placed on the lap, or when using a mouse plugged into USB. Evacuation between the screen and the frame would have prevented this from happening. Side noise, background sound will be necessary to forget the V3350. In a quiet, the fan can be heard in any system activity.
With the 484170-001Core i5-2410M, current use is fluid (office, internet browsing, ...), but it also allows to perform image editing, encoding HD video or any other activity that requires heavy calculations in a reasonable time.
Video playback in high definition (HD 1080p Blu-Ray equivalent) passes smoothly on this computer. We recommend to use this for video playback capabilities of the integrated graphics (Intel HD 3000). This hardware support to decode Full HD 1080p videos without taking the processor is then free for other tasks.
Starting the Windows 7 Professional 64 bit integrated takes 42 seconds. It then takes between 10 and 20 seconds for the launch of various software and connecting to a wireless network complete extinction takes less than 10 seconds.
The graphics chipset capabilities are weak. Inefficient in 3D, it can still run recent games like Starcraft 2 or Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 with graphic details to a minimum, not a fan's dream game, except maybe those who practice retro-gaming or just 2D.
Audio: mandatory helmet!
But what is going through your head when Dell engineers have developed this computer? Inputs / outputs are among the best encountered lately. Crosstalk and dynamics approaching 90 dB. The output is quite good for a small laptop. Everything was perfect until ...
It ... realizes that the speaker - there is only one! - No use at all. At maximum volume, the sound is so low that it would be almost engulfed by the fan noise. Suffice to say that any keystroke prevents understanding. The helmet is mandatory for a chat.
With its 8-cell battery, theToshiba PA3817U-1BRS is offering a range of 5:20 (Wi-Fi off, headphones plugged in and brightness at 100 cd / m²), an excellent score. If its weight does not exceed 2kg - it weighs 2.1 Kg - it could be a good companion for travel. There, in a backpack or a bag, it is felt after less than an hour ride. Another black spot, the battery protrudes from the chassis, which can interfere with insertion into a cover like "second skin". By opting for the 4-cell battery, you gain weight and space, but we will sacrifice half of its autonomy.
The slab is V3350 mate. Outside, the sun does not create too much glare. A good place for him.
Its 13.3-inch diagonal displays a definition of 1366 x 768 dots. The characters are easily readable.
The technology used is TN, with a persistence time equivalent to 5 ms models. As a result, viewing angles up and down are short and sufficient reactivity for office use and for movies.
However colorimetry poor. The colors are false, with a difference (DeltaE) of 13.6 and a strong colorimetric shift towards blues. Contrast is also bad - as with most laptops of the moment - with a rate of 155:1. We measured a black level of 1.31 cd / m², a white 202 cd / m².
If our color profile, available on Digital Focus is always there to correct those ugly colors, it can do nothing for contrast.
