Dell’s Vostro 14 5468 Model Packs in What You Need for Business Productivity


Never have I ever looked deeply into the Dell computer brand, “Vostro”. So, naturally, I wanted to know more, considering various headlines have described the new laptop series with words such as mid-range, high-quality, expensive, thin and light, and dated. This intrigued me further, as I found it necessary to bind this mysterious brand name with all of these suggestive, partially confusing headlines.

One thing we can get straight is the Dell Vostro 14 5000 Series include mid-range notebooks. Mid-range is going to mean things are fancy enough to consider themselves such. For example, immediately upon opening the box, you’ll notice the Dell Vostro is encased in a lovely metal chassis, yelling “I AM QUALITY” at your face. Yep, computers do that nowadays, you didn’t know that? Although there’s metal involved, this thing is still light enough to be a comfortable carry-around buddy. With its LCD screen measuring 14 inches, and weighing a light 3.65 pounds, although the body of the Vostro, at 240mm x 340mm x 18.5mm, is trim and sleek, looking closer reveals it is actually quite square in appearance, technically making it seem “dated”. Curves are so “in” these days.

What makes up for that is it’s comfortable, fast keyboard layout, one that is said to be something you could work on for hours on end and be cool. Speaking of work, the Vostro 14 5468 was made for mainstream “small business productivity”, with Windows 10 Pro, and an aim for delivering just what you need for that balance between performance and security. So there’s not a cutting-edge physique going on here, we know that, but good things include both a nice and long battery life, as well as legacy I/Os for business folk. These include 3 USB 3.0s, a USB 3.1 Gen 1, and HDMI port. Then, of course, interwebs, via 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0 are present.

Inside the Vostros 5468, you’ll find an Intel Core i7-7500U 2.7GHz CPU, one usually based on architecture for desktops, as well as a 7th gen Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU, or NVIDIA’s M940MX graphics chip with 2GB/4GB of DDR5 vRAM. Those are adaptable for big accomplishments/multitasking. The hard drive includes 500GB-5400RPM, and M.2 SSD as dual drive storage, with memory including up to 32GB of 2400MHz DDR4 SoDIMM (2 slots).

The Dell Vostros 14 5468 retails for just $349, sports a wonderfully stylish and pretty perfectly-sized and weighed body. It’s easy to carry around, and equally capable of handling busy work for a good 8 hours of battery life on one charge. Since perks are plentiful, you won’t notice the lower-resolution whilst browsing the web or editing a document. You can rely on this device for some lovely video, and even get some good gaming in with that NVIDIA GPU option. Though, don’t expect the kind of fps a hardcore gamer would be looking for. Basically, what is to be expected should be defined pretty well here. The Vostros 5468 is marketed for businesses, mostly, but could run well for any user’s daily tasks.
