The same feeling transmits its “look and feel outside.” With a chassis constructed entirely in lightweight plastic, immediately obvious that this is a team that is not prepared to withstand bumps, scratches and dirt, but that does not repeat is this your goal. Otherwise its design without being the ultimate, denotes a certain elegance that even escapes the excessive sobriety that tend to provide much of the equipment they have on their target audience SMEs.

As in many other midrange computers, the trackpad of this Dell Vostro 3460 is anything but smooth and precise. As with so many teams midrange appreciate hearing a mouse with which to direct our pointer. If instead we liked the size of your fingerprint. Escape all the attention you get at other teams and almost hidden, and that sensor is not unsightly but so little we like more of an accessory that we can dip into if we need it, without its presence is a problem.

On the other hand we regret the lack of a backlit keyboard, a feature that we think is important in any team that targets the professional market and that helps not only fly, but can be extremely useful in a meeting, at a conference, in a presentation, etc.. We believe that including this feature albeit optional, is one of the duties that Dell is pending for its next generation of Vostro.

Nothing to argue against its performance. Although we can upgrade equipment to an Intel Core i5 (Ivy Bridge), really is not necessary. Unless we have to work with really heavy paper (PDF printing, high resolution images, etc..) For which even recommend other equipment, we can only say that the Dell Vostro 3460 meets solvency in all scenarios. It is an extremely quiet machine that does not heat up easily and with whom you want to work when we are in an office if most of our colleagues use the same type of equipment.

Next to discrete fingerprint reader that we talked about before, the new Dell also incorporates other tools clearly focused on the corporate segment, such as the ability to encrypt the contents of your hard drive, you can back the cloud of the same or To schedule a backup system more efficient than that incorporates Windows 7 by default.

As for autonomy, six-cell battery provides a duty cycle of between 3 and 5 hours, depending on the use we make of equipment which keeps it in the middle of this type of equipment.

Conclusions

The Dell Vostro 3460 has an enviable price value. For less than 600 euros companies can access a computer that meets solvency in all areas of management of any company. It is a quiet team, which works well in multitasking environments and has good connectivity.

It has a storage capacity of more than enough for a corporate environment, an HD webcam that facilitates our videoconferencing and a good anti-glare screen that helps us not be weary in sight after spending several hours working.

Soon we will find models in the market in excess of the newness of Dell in this segment and if they do not get it at that price. This was all regarding the Dell Vostro 3460 which is quite impressive.
