Impressive business companion within budget
Display and Design
The Dell Vostro 2520 flaunts a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit Anti Glare display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels which protects your eyes from harmful reflective rays thereby allowing you to work for long. The outfit looks quite elegant with a soft black color on the lid and glossy silver on the inside. However, it disappoints with a thickness of 34.5mm and a weight of 2.4kg.
CPU and OS
For driving its processes, the Dell Vostro 2520 relies on the power of a 3rd generation Intel Core i3 processor galloping at 2.5GHz and sitting on HM75 Express chipset. It is assisted by a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which is expandable up to 8GB via the 2 unused memory slots. It gives the responsibility of managing demanding games and videos to the Intel HD 4000 GPU. It doesnÂt come preloaded with any user friendly OS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Dell Vostro 2520 carries a 1MP webcam coupled with digital microphone that makes video calls at high resolution easy and free of noise. It takes care of the storage needs of the user with a standard 500GB SATA HDD. You can also use the 8X DVD RW Drive for exchanging files via disks. The notebook also houses dual 2W stereo speakers.
Battery and Connectivity
The Dell Vostro 2520 is furnished with a 6 cell Li-ion battery that promises to provide an uninterrupted service for up to 3 hours. Connectivity features include HDMI out, 3 USB 2.0 slots, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, digital media reader and VGA port.
If you are looking for a notebook that packs a standard configuration to handle business tasks proficiently but doesn't burn a hole in your pocket, the Dell Vostro 2520 is worth considering. Additionally, it has got features like a fast 8X optical drive, support for Gigabit Ethernet and 1MP webcam which are hardly seen in many higher priced devices.
