  • The advantages of Dell's Vostro 2520 are found in the good battery life, decent application performance, 24 month warranty and matte screen. The screen's contrast, black value and brightness are more than acceptable for the laptop's price range. The device can easily cope with routine application scenarios and provides more than enough power for most computer users. Regrettably, Dell has not placed much value on good maintenance. The entire laptop has to be disassembled to exchange the hard drive or clean the fan.

  • For the professional on the go, the Dell Latitude 2120 looks great and performs even better, but competing business netbooks do better on price.


  • The Latitude 2120 is one of the few netbooks on the market designed for business usage. It has a great keyboard, solid build quality, and an anti-glare display, all of which are expected in business machines. Another upside is the excellent eight-hour runtime courtesy of the oversized 6-cell battery.

    The 2120 is not without its downsides. Its rubber blue exterior makes it look and feel like a toy as opposed to a business machine. The 2120 is also quite thick and bulky, compounding the awkward appearance.


  • No one should pay over $400 for a heavy, Atom-based netbook with only a 10.1-inch display and mediocre battery life.
