The combination of its form, weight and thickness is perfect for road warriors. You can expect its built is made up of aluminum and this makes the V131 an extremely solid device. Its hinges are made up of zinc while its palm rest is created using magnesium. It also comes with a simple yet elegant matte black or silver color scheme with a touch of chrome around its track pad and keyboard.

One of the best features of the Vostro V131 laptop from Dell is that it is only 1.82 kilograms in weight and 0.83 inches thick. In other words, you can expect the device to be light in weight so you can bring it with you anywhere. It can also easily fit in your bag or backpack. The extremely thin and lightweight nature of V131 can be attributed to the fact that it does not come with an optical drive. However, you have a guarantee that even without the optical drive, the device can still be used to your greatest advantage. The recent technology also makes it possible for you to use a smaller and faster optical drive so you do not need to worry about the absence of the drive in V131.

All ports of the device are transferred to the lateral edges at the back. These changes are made to prevent obstructions from the connected cables. The Kensington slot and the power socket can still be expected to remain on their respective places while the card reader is transferred to the right side of the device.

V131 is also installed with a multi-touch pad. The good thing about this touch pad is that you can modify it in order to suit your personal needs. You should also take note of the fact that you can only start to scroll documents using the touch pad once the classic scroll fields that can be found at the right and lower edge of the pad are activated. You will also be required to push your two fingers in order to scroll through the documents. The clear stroke of the touch pad keys is also proven to be impressive. The good thing about this is that you cannot expect the keys to produce a lot of noise once you start to use them.
