Dell Vostro 1200 is my first ever laptop that I ever buy. It has been one year since I bought it via online. Overall, I’m quite satisfied and it’s perform well under normal usage.

Dell Vostro 1200

The new Intel-based notebook for ultra portable series from DELL is definitely making the way for me. The new 12.1-inch model is packed with 120GB hard drive and 2GB of system memory. It also comes with 3-in-1 memory card readers, integrated 2 megapixels webcam and finger print reader.

The spec is further enhanced with DVD-RW burner and 802.11n WiFi. The price is only RM 2,388. It was a total new experience buying online.

Purchasing Dell Vostro 1200 online

Looking at the box would make you think of computer monitor box. In fact, it’s not. It’s a new DELL laptop that I ordered online. It took them 10 working days to be delivered by Skynet courier.

Let me intro a little bit about its specification. Dell Vostro 1200 is an ultra portable 12.1″ notebook weight only 1.9 kg. For frequent travelers who need powerful performance in a lightweight and compact design and wireless connectivity. It is equipped with a built-in DVD burner, a good quality of 2.0 megapixel camera, 3-in-1 memory card reader and finger print reader.

Vostro 1200 is powered by 2GB of system memory, 120GB hard drive and Intel Core 2 Duo T5270 (1.4Ghz, 2MB L2, 800 Mhz FSB) processor. The 12.1″ TrueLife WXGA widescreen display comes with 1280-by-800 resolutions.

The box comes with nylon case and CD driver. The notebook itself is located at the bottom with well-protected.

After taking out from the box, my expectation of its weight is slightly unexpected. I can’t hold it by one hand due to fear of dropping it. I need to handle it with both hand, same with opening the LCD.

The screen is very shiny until look like a mirror. Upon checking the physical condition, it has no defect and overall is quite satisfying as a first time customer.

I believe I could start my own project and with the mobility that I need, I can have more life. Probably will make more post at outstation like Starbucks.
