Dell announced the new 13.3" Vostro 1310 starting at $749 and 15.4" Vostro 1510 starting at $599. These models will be available on May 1 and in mid-May we can also expect a new 17" Vostro 1710 notebook.
The firm says these notebooks arrive at a competitive price and are thinner and lighter than their predecessors.
Here's an overview of some of the unique features:
A sleek design, with slot load optical drive, that is thinner and lighter than previous generation Vostro laptops;
The display screen of the new Vostro 13.3-inch has 94 percent the viewing area of a 14.1-inch model, yet weighs nearly 20 percent less;
Continuation of Dell’s 30-day worry-free return policy;
Available with no trialware and free services including 10GB of Dell DataSafe Online Backup, Network Assistant and PC TuneUp; and
Vostro 1310 and 1510 laptops offer more security features than comparable competitive products with integrated fingerprint readers, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 helping prevent unauthorized network access and data theft, cable lock slot, and Dell-exclusive, factory-installed McAfee Total Protection for Small Business security software.
