Similar to other Dell laptops, the Dell Vostro 1320 is flexible and easily customizable. The potential buyer has several configuration options and a whole range of specifications to choose from.
The Dell Vostro 1320 can be considered boring in the style department. In a sea of black box laptops, it will absolutely not stand out. It's shiny, what's the best we can say about design. Regardless, it shouldn't stop a buyer from considering its other features.
At 13.3 inches, the Dell Vostro 1320 has a screen that is larger than others in its segment. In addition, Dell gave the interested buyer the choice between a normal LCD or the TrueLife version, which is characterized by a glossy surface.
Weighing less than 5 pounds, this laptop is easy to carry. If the lifestyle or work of the user requires the laptop to be portable, this is just the thing.

The Dell Vostro 1320 offers the user a lot of comfort. The size of the keyboard is just enough so that you can type easily. The buttons jump back quickly and react very quickly. The touchpad is also a pleasure as it is sensitive and highly precise.
What we like best about this laptop is that it doesn't build up much heat at all. Therefore, you can use it as long as you want without being disturbed by the heat and without having to bring a cooling pillow in your pocket.
Don't expect gaming with the Dell Vostro 1320 to be a great experience. This laptop can only be used for older games that are not as intense in graphics as the newest ones. This laptop should not be considered if the user is a hardcore player.
We also found a bug in the speaker setup. We believe that the designer may not have considered the position of the speakers. The speakers are at the bottom, not the top of the monitor where they should be. This is not ideal if you are attending a video conference or watching movies.
The features of the Dell Vostro 1320 are designed for business, and we believe Dell has met the requirements well. While we think it should be styled better, businesspeople may not like the distraction of an overly styled laptop. It's a satisfactory laptop for the price that Dell sells it for.
