Although not without some issues, the Dell Vostro 131 is a solid business ultraportable and its shortcomings are largely mitigated by its low price and long battery life. The lack of a desktop dock or port replicator option will limit its use to some...

The Vostro V131 is priced at Rs. 43,990 (MOP). It follows the trend of the other expensively priced Vostros, but does fall a little short in terms of build. With the specs, it compares straight to the Lenovo G570, we reviewed earlier. However, with...

Part aluminium and part magnesium, the new Vostro V131 smells of style and sturdiness. Though a little heavy for a laptop which claims to be slim, it stands out with its matte finish and is suitable for presentations and conference rooms....

We believe the Dell Vostro V131 makes for a great small-to-medium business notebook. Aside from its low contrast display, the V131 provides amazing battery life (nine hours), has good overall performance thanks to its internal hardware, and it has some...

We’ve reviewed just about every line of laptops that Dell makes over the years, but we haven’t had a chance to look at the Vostro line until today. Vostro is essentially Dell’s entry-level business laptop brand, with an emphasis on...

The Dell Vostro V131 doesn't quite deliver for us. It looks striking, the keyboard action is superb, and it's nice to see two USB 3.0 ports instead of one, and also to get HDMI and VGA connections. But the lack of an optical drive is annoying,...
