Dell Ultraportable Vostro V13

Dell Vostro V13Last night, Dell gave a sneak peek at what is thought to be a major addition to the Vostro line of netbooks. Now Dell had been teasing a new Vostro for the low price of $450 to US media groups but like all secrets somebody slipped up and spilled the beans. In this case it was Dell Singapore who instead of telling about the device just went all out and launched the netbook as the Vostro V13 with complete specs.

It appears that the company is taking everything it learned from building the Adamo XPS and putting a more practical use to it. Now there aren't a ton of specs released about the V13 just yet but what we do know is that the netbook will measures a tiny .65-inches thick and weighs in a little less than 3.5lbs. The V13 could be home to any of three processors; a 1.2GHz Celeron, 1.3GHz Core 2 Duo or a 1.4GHz Core 2 Solo with integrated X4500MHD graphics.

The V13 is slightly thicker than the Adamo XPS but this little extra "fluff" allows for the accommodation of an Ethernet port, an eSATA port, USB 2.0 port, an SD card slot and even an ExpressCard slot. Take all of that and add it to a 13.3-inch display and a $450 price tag on the low end and you have yourself a nice little machine.

The small size, low price and good specs make the V13 the perfect travel laptop. It is easily portable and lightweight so it won't lug you down during business trips. The price makes it affordable for any type of entrepreneur whether you work for a fortune 500 company or a small town business. But if a permanent laptop isn't your style or necessity, then you can always go with an affordable laptop rental.

Overall the Vostro V13 looks to be a great laptop and one that will surely get people excited. Its easy portability and low price make it an excellent travel laptop and the specs just make it good all around. Be sure to check this one out when it hits us here in the states in the near future.
