Title: Very happy
Posted22 September 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
I bought an i7 2.10Ghz processor with 6GB RAM, 500GB HDD with 32GB mSATA, and Windows Home Premium 64-bit.
I went from a Vostro 1700 with a 17" screen to now a Vostro 3460 with a 14" screen.
The laptop arrived exactly a month ago. So I have had time to configure everything and get a good understanding of the machine.
In short, I am very happy with the new laptop. I took a risk buying without any reviews on this site, but I have been pleasantly surprised at how nice everything is and how well the machine performs. Here are my pros and cons:
-----------
Pros
-----------
SUPER FAST: From compressing files to encrypting, to multi-tasking, this machine just screams.
FAST BOOT-UP: My old machine took minutes to boot-up and log in. This machine feels almost instant compared to the old one. (But some of that could be the Windows 7 compared to Vista though).
USB 3.0 IS FAST: I have 2 external terabyte hard drives and it is so fast to copy back and forth now with USB 3.0.
KEYBOARD: The chiclet keyboard is really nice.
ANTI-GLARE SCREEN: I always buy Vostro's because I'm a software developer working on the computer all day long and thus I don't like seeing reflections in the screen.
LIGHT-WEIGHT AND PORTABLE: The laptop is very light and fits into my small book bag. It's easy to grab and go. I also lie in bed with it all the time because it is so light.
GOOD VALUE: I debated between buying this or an ultrabook for the small size and portability. Compared to all ultrabooks on the market, the Vostro 3460 was just such good value with more features and a lower price.
-----------
Cons
-----------
NO PORTS AT THE BACK. This is the only con I could find and it's not that big of a deal. Other than the power cord, there are no ports at the back. It would have been nice if there was a USB port at the back.
Pros:software development, downloading multimedia, watching videos, reading, excel spreadsheets, browsing
