I can't recommend this laptop highly enough. It's good looking, lightweight and was delivered within 3 days of ordering. Pros: Lightweight, good looking, good performance and all round use, excellent audio, USB3 with powershare, good display, great keyboard, superb price. Cons: I would have liked the option of ordering an SSD. Apart from that it's an excellent machine. I know I sound like a work for DELL but I'm just really impressed with this laptop at this price.
Pros: Form factor. Very compact and lightweight for an entry level business laptop. Plenty of I/O options including VGA which is getting harder to find on new laptops.
Cons: Wireless networking!!! Sometimes I have to disable/enable wifi 3 or more times to get it to recognize my home network, but once it finally connects it is fine. Another weakness is the keyboard. I have to change the way I type in order to avoid "key bounce" which is unwanted duplication of letters. You almost have to make a point of holding each key down for a moment rather than tapping them like I would normally.
All in all the laptop generally works well and provides a great form factor at the price I was looking for so I would recommend this product despite the annoyances.
Pros:schoolwork, web browsing, light gaming
Response from Dell.comBy AnthonyAforDell, Customer Reviews, December 6, 2012
I am glad to hear that you are enjoying the design and hardware features on the Dell Vostro 3360. As you mentioned, this laptop is a great choice for an entry-level business system.
You can adjust some settings in Windows to help with your "key bounce" concern. -Go to Start > Control Panel > Keyboard. -Under Keyboard Properties, select the Speed tab. -You will then be able to adjust the Repeat Delay and the Repeat rate. -Make the Repeat Delay longer and the Repeat Rate slower. You may want to play around with these settings until you are completely comfortable with the performance.
As for your wireless networking concern, I recommend that you reach out to one of our Online Support Teams so that we may accurately identify any causes and possible solutions for you.

Thank you for your feedback, and thank you for choosing Dell!
Pros: Lightweight, good battery life (a realistic 5+ hours), quiet operation, lots of USB ports, good value for the money. Very pleased.
Cons: Would have liked to be able to configure/purchase it with an SSD or different operating system (Ubuntu, for example). The preconfigured combinations offered aren't always ideal. I'll probably substitute an after market SSD. I'd also prefer the option from Dell of a "clean" OS install without any trial software included. (Not holding my brreath.)
Review: I replaced my older, but still very reliable, Vostro V13 with this system. I particularly like the compact, lightweight form factor. (I don't miss a CD/DVD drive at all now that USB keys are available in larger sizes.) Perfect as a travel computer for web browsing, e-mail and some light duty office application computing. Highly recommended.
Pros:business, Travel, general computing

Review 5 for Vostro 3360
Duration of Product Use:Less than a month
Level of Expertise:Good

Yes, I would recommend this product
A nice, light, thin, sturdy laptop comparable to an ultrabook. Keyboard may take some getting used to (keys are unusually light, not a bad thing); Touchpad is good.
I just received my laptop last week, and so far I really like it. It's very slim, lightweight, look good and it feel well built & very solide. The i5 CPU perform very well, the image quality is quit good & I'm very impress with the sound of those tiny speakers. At that price, you can't go wrong. Like I said I only had it for a week, but no cons so far.
