The Dell Vostro series of laptops have always been impressive and I am fan of the Dell Vostro laptops. The Dell Vostro 5460 was recently announced and I got a chance to get a short hands on experience with the Dell Vostro 5460. It is the latest in its line-up of ultra-portable laptops with the thinnest and lightest 14-inch Vostro laptop to date. Measuring a mere 18.3mm and weighing in at just 1.54kg, the ultrathin Vostro 5460 delivers more power and portability for value-conscious customers and professionals, and IT decision makers looking for mobility and performance at the right price.
Sporting an expansive 14-inch high definition widescreen LED (HD WLED) TrueLife display that supports up to 1366 x 768 pixels, the new Vostro 5460 comes with integrated stereo speakers and a dedicated subwoofer powered by HD audio with Waves MaxxAudio 4.0. Users get to enjoy 720p video content in immersive audio and visual detail. The laptop also features an integrated 720HD 1MP camera with microphones for high-definition web-conferencing.
With third generation Intel Core i3 and i5 processors and integrated HD 4000 graphics at its core (or optional 2GB DDR3 NVIDIA GeForce GT630M graphics), users can opt for either the standard or Ultrabook configurations of the Vostro 5460. The 500GB HDD allows for plenty of documents and multimedia files to be stored and accessed on the go; and the 32GB SSD in the Ultrabook configuration delivers speedier performance and added storage.
The Vostro 5460 comes standard with Dell’s In-Home Service after Remote Diagnosisii, as well as Dell Backup and Recovery Manager for reliable and fuss-free data protection. For added security of personal data and system files, the Ultrabook configuration also comes with Intel Anti-Theft Technology and Identity Protection Technology.
After a short hands on experience with the Dell Vostro 5460, I would recommend this laptop to business users who need the power and armed with the portability factor for their business practices. Nonetheless, students and leisure users can also seriously consider the Dell Vostro 5460 too! Lightweight, portable, trendy colours and packed with leisure capabilities too!
