Dell are known the be the company that regularly brings out new laptops, and soon they will be releasing the Dell Vostro V131, which is both powerful and compact, and we’ve managed to get our hands on one for you guys! The Dell Vostro V131 is a compact and sturdy 13.3-inch laptop. Housing an Intel Core i3 processor, the Dell Vostro V131 definitely has enough power to get you through a whole variety of tasks, whether they’re browsing the web, checking your email or watching a movie on the High Definition LED Display. The main feature of the V131 is the design, it comes in at only 0.83 inches thick and weighing 1.82kg (with standard 6 cell battery and normal HDD), this means that it is extremely light to carry and can fit into your backpack/bag very easily. It has an aluminium structure and unique bezel design, which gives it a very professional and sleek look. If we move around the outside of the laptop, it has an ethernet port, 3 USB ports, a HDMI port, 3.5mm headphone jack, display port, SD card slot and the battery plug connector.
Instead of getting discouraged by the poor reception for the Vostro V130, Dell has launched the revised and corrected Vostro 131. This new 13.3-inch, with Sandy Bridge processor, should both be more powerful and have a longer battery life, one of the major weaknesses of its predecessor. The Vostro V131 has the same aluminium casing as the V130: solid, well-finished and with no glossy plastic. The keyboard has undergone a small transformation. Backlit chiclet keys are used here but otherwise nothing else has changed. The keying is still supple and pleasant and the keys are all in their usual places. The multitouch touchpad is the same as that on the V130: precise and with a nice fluid glide. The V131's webcam gives a decent image. The black isn't blocked, the white not burnt and movement fluidly represented. The only fault is that the image has a slight tendency to flicker. While the connectivity on the V130 was concentrated at the back, on the V131 it's on the sides. On the right, there's an RJ45 port (Ethernet), a VGA out, two USB 3.0 ports and a headphones socket.
