Dell has introduced a new addition to its small-business line of Vostro laptops with the release of 13.3-inch V13, which is equipped with ultra-low-voltage Intel (ULV) processors to manage energy efficiency.
The new laptop is 0.65 inches (16.5mm) thin and starts at 3.5 pounds (1.59kg). The laptop is encased in brushed aluminum with reinforced zinc hinges for rough handling.
Vostro V13 comes with integrated webcam and microphones that allows users to make internet calls, conduct video conferences and exchange files to help increase productivity. It also comes with wireless connectivity options such as 802.11g/n wireless LAN, bluetooth, and WWAN mobile broadband. The laptop runs on Windows 7 with support for up to 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM memory.
The company added that the V13 keeps data under lock and key with optional data-encrypted hard drives with automated DataSafe online backup to protect and help recover data.
Sam Burd, global vice president at Dell Small and Medium Business, said: “This 13-inch small business laptop is in a category all its own as entrepreneurs now have quality performance, battery life and security combined with a thin and lightweight design sturdy enough for today’s business.”
Starting at $449, the new laptop comes with a 30-day return policy, and features a suite of support services designed for small-business frequent travelers. Users can extend their basic hardware warranty from one to three years to stay covered into the future.
