Reviews

The Vostro 1320 is a great buy for the price. Although it’s not exactly snazzy looking and far from the sleek look of an Apple MacBook Pro, it does offer good performance at a price tag of around $700 – $800 with a decent configuration. The Vostro 1320 is a great size for students or business people that need to be portable, the weight is under 5 lbs so it is easy to place in your backpack and carry around. The battery life of about 3 hours under normal to heavy usage is acceptable, you can always upgrade to a larger 9-cell battery or carry a spare battery in your backpack if you need more. If you keep an eye out for special deals and coupons on the Vostro 1320 you might be able to get it for a steal, if you can get it for a price of around $700 with the specs you want I would not hesitate to recommend this laptop.”(StudentBuyingGuide, 2009)
