First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best business notebooks
- — 04 November, 2010 14:11
These days it's hard to distinguish between a business notebook and a laptop designed for the average consumer. Both types of notebooks have similar performance and features, but the difference is that business notebooks generally have more management software, better security options and are more solidly built because they are most likely to be used on the road.
In this round-up we've highlighted a variety of business notebooks from Acer, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba. You will find large, desktop-replacement style notebooks such as the Dell Vostro 3700, and even a netbook such as the Sony VAIO X Series, which is favoured by travelling executives. All up, we believe there's something for every type of business user.
8 / 13
The Vostro 3700 is the 17.3in model in Dell's Vostro 3000 series, and it's the first Dell business notebook to include Intel's Core i5 CPUs. It's a fast desktop replacement notebook that's perfect for office work, yet it's also capable of undertaking CPU intensive tasks such as media encoding and even gaming. We'd prefer 64-bit Windows 7 installed as standard and a backlit keyboard included -- but it has a plethora of features, has a good battery life and considering its large dimensions it's reasonably lightweight.
