Dell's Vostro V13
Computing giant Dell have announced a new portable laptop – this one aimed specifically at business users.
The Dell Vostro V13 is slightly larger than its ‘netbook’ equivalent with a 13.3″ screen, however Dell is describing it as “ultra-portable” due to its thin form and light weight.
At its thinnest point the laptop is 16.5mm, while it weighs in at 1.6kg. Like netbooks it lacks any DVD drive but it does pack more of a punch in other ways – specifically its ability to house a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 500GB hard drive.
The laptop uses the Windows 7 operating system and has 2GB or RAM as standard – it also has the almost standard laptop features of a built-in webcam and microphone, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Vostro V13 is priced at €399 before VAT and shipping charges.
