I had received the product six months backs. Other features are functioning properly. Recently I could not locate WiFi facility in this PC, which was totally unacceptable. Today you cannot expect a PC without a WiFi and that too at a cost of nearly 38k. The absence of WiFi reduces the utility of this product by 40%. Latter the problem got rectified when I contacted Dell, Now I am satisfied with the product. Wi-Fi has been enabled in this product. I am satisfied with the performance of this product. Worth purchasing.

After lot of research I narrowed on Dell. I've used Toshiba, HP and Dell, and undoubtedly Dell has been my favorite as it is reliable. Toshiba is another favorite, but not sure how is the service in Mumbai. With HP I faced 'freeze' problems so was my last option. Now lets review this laptop.
1. With i5 3230m released in Jan 2013 and 4 GB RAM its a extremely fast machine
2. Weight is just 2.2 Kg so feels light to carry around. I had a Dell Inspiron 6400 before this which was almost 3 Kg. So good relief.
3. All regularly used features like DVD RW, USB 2.0, SD card, HDMI, etc present. So very usable product!
4. The price is really low (got it @ Rs 36500). Similar Sony Vaio product E14125 costs Rs 37,000 & that too has only i3 3110m processor.
5. Anti Glare so you can work for longer hours without much eye strain.
1. Display quality is not so good. My earlier Dell Inspiron had exceptional display quality!
2. The frame around the screen seems to be low quality. Maybe its not low quality and they just used a lighter material, but it gives of feel of being low quality.
3. USB 3.0 port missing. But this is a very minor thing.
Giving it 4 stars bcoz of display quality.
Bottomline: If you want a laptop for "Work" purpose, this laptop will give you Great performance. If you want a laptop for "Entertainment" don't look at Vostro, go for Inspiron series!
@Flipkart: Booked laptop on Mon 22nd July @ 11.15 am. Delivered to my doorstep on Tue 23rd July @ 6.15 pm. That too shipped from Bangalore to Mumbai.
Your logistics is AWESOME! Keep it up! Thanks.

Ordinary looks but very good performance!!
by Sampad Dhar on 2014-02-23
I was looking for a product that would give high performance and wouldn't be too big, but I had budget constraints. The Dell Vostro 2420 comes with an i5 processor and 4GB RAM, and ensures that speed is very good. The 14.1 inch screen is just big enough for my work as I did not want a 15 inch screen. The looks are ordinary and the plastic by the side of the screen isn't very high quality. If you are not too concerned about looks, and want a laptop that would give good performance, then Dell Vostro is the most cost-effective option. The packaging was good and delivery from Flipkart was on time. I am happy with the product.
DELL THE BEST BUSSINESS LAPTOPS
by Rajesh Kumar S on 2014-02-10
If you are looking for a laptop for daily use and with good processor & battery then this is probably the best one.
Wi Fi network certainly has a problem
by Atish Kumar on 2014-01-02
I am rating it three start because of the problem with the wi fi. I have to keep resetting it. Otherwise its a ok laptop for the price it has, nothing fancy and nothing big, but has enough of everything that you can use it for your basic work.
What a Product by Dell and What a service by Flipkart
by Sahil Verma on 2013-12-12
First of let me tell you - i did a lot of research before buying this product.
Its amazing i5 processor 500 GB memory 4 GB ram 1 yr onsite support my dell. Led screen Hd and lots more with enganced windows feature and integrated cam.
guys i searched for many configuration and found this the best and trust me even dell store was selling it at 40 k and i found this crackling deal at Flipkart and they were offering EMI as well.
I dint thought for a moment when i noticed this @ Flipkart. Amazing packing and delivery by Flipkart!
Long Live you guys!!

I got this laptop fron Flipkart but returned the same after the wireless card kept dropping out of my home network. The service from flipkart is above expectation though not excellent (had to follow-up with them for return). But to my (and even Dell Computer Systems) surprise, flipkart also provided technical assistance to help resolve the issue.
I used large excel spread-sheets/browsing along with audio playback and there was lag at all. Basis the limited usage, I can comment that its a good performance laptop at this price point, however look/feel is rather below average. I didnt ran hardware-intensive applications, so cannot comment in great detail. I finally bought lenovo G400s (with slightly better confiiguration within the constraints of a 14' screen) which, though burnt a deeper hole (by another ~8k) in my pocket, has a much better feel and the cool 'touch' feature. Go for this if looks dont matter (very insipid) and Dell service standards are the minimum that you expect.

Fantastic Product at great price !!! Dell support has been outstanding, have been using other manufacturer products for long and would say that customer support for dell products outweighs any other. Worth every rupee spent..
Good device for quite a standard usage..
by Abhishek on 2013-06-08
this thing does not have a dedicated graphic card.. and the battery back up is around 2.5- 3.0 hours which is quite less.. and in all the remaining features it is awesome !! it possesses a 1MP HD web cam.. and an inbuilt microphone.. an anti-glare display.. and an i 5 processor !!
