Let’s have a Dell Vostro
Now that I’m done with all the geeky technical information, let’s fill you with some food before I share my initial review after testing Dell Vostro 5460 during the event.
So here’s the cozy café Dell has brought us to, to check out it’s latest Vostro products for the Singapore market. Although, it’s not a food review, I can’t help but take some shots of the food!
Really strong Beetroot smell and taste, and I felt the cleansing effect less than 1 hour later! Haha… I ordered it without ice, so it’s really pure, healthy juice!
Yum yum, I feel so healthy eating it! Muahaha, Some people might not like it, but I love it! If only I can have it every morning! It’s sweet, sour, crunchy, chewy and it made me happy!
I had the Provencal Omelette (first dish) while Darren had the Fine Palate Cook Up and Vincent had the Steak and eggs. That’s my first choice the moment I took a look at the menu! Because of the mushrooms, and not much meat, meaning less calories (hopefully). The toast was a little dry, but I love the garden salad (it’s rocket leaves!)
So much for calories-counting! How can I forgo this!? I cleared the plate despite having a full stomach (I told you girls have a separate stomach for dessert!) I’m not really a fan of strawberry ice-cream as poor quality ones have the tendency to taste like medicine (or too sweet) BUT Fine Palate’s make you want to go for more! It’s not very creamy (which is good) as I can finish the whole thing!
My short little Dell Vostro 5460 Review
OK, I’m not exactly an IT person (my ex used to settle it for me :P) So here’s just some of my opinions after trying the laptop out for a while.
– Windows 8
Erm, if you haven’t been using Windows 8, or is still at Windows 7 (like me), you might have some difficulty navigating as it is a whole new level of user experience (Darren said he is going to install Windows 7 if he’s ever going to buy a new laptop)
If you are
a camwhore planning to do internet calls with your friends or make use of the webcam often, the laptop’s webcam isn’t exactly super clear. I’m not sure if it is the settings, but do try out in the stores and see if it’s right for you!
– Palm rest
Dell Vostro 5460 is dubbed to be packed with a revolutionary heat dissipating design for a cooler palm rest even after extensive use. So this means no more hand warmer for me if I get this laptop (my HP laptop is currently giving out a lot of heat! Haha… I’m using it more than 12 hours a day though) I didn’t have enough time to see if this really works, but I certainly hope it does!
– Nice-“touching” Touch Pad
I like to test the touch pad when I choose a laptop. Just like how some people hate the sound/texture of nails scratching the chalkboard, I hate the feeling of some touchpads against my fingers. But Vostro 5460 has pretty nice-touching touch-pad. (I now it sounds weird, but do try out to know what I mean!)
I believe the laptop works pretty well for majority of the users, but if you are planning to go into intensive design, gaming, video-editing (like me), you might need to upgrade the laptop further. But for the price you are paying (and remember, it’s LIGHT), it will be worth your money!
