Hot on the heels of an update to its Alienware gaming laptop line that brought Intel’s 3rd-generation Core processors to the series, Engadget noticed that Dell has added Ivy Bridge chips to its Vostro 470 mini tower and XPS 8500 desktops. The Vostro is designed for businesses and has modest specs that are ideal for office-type applications. At the entry level, the Vostro 470 includes a 3rd-generation Intel Core i5-3450 (3.10GHz, 3,5GHz Turbo) processor, integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics, 4GB of DDR3-1600MHz RAM, 500GB (7200RPM) HDD, 16X CD/DVD burner, and a Dell keyboard and mouse, in addition...

As the laptop onslaught continues, Dell has a new series to introduce. But these aren't your average laptops: these are business-minded machines that should be taken very, very seriously. Are you in a serious mood? Good. Actually, the Vostro 3000 series probably isn't quite that serious, but there's no question that the Vostro name has generally been associated with business rigs in the past. The main difference here? These new guys have batteries that can last upwards of 12 hours, which actually sounds like a figure that would do the average businessperson a lot of good. Available in 13-, 14-,... Read more...
In addition to the Inspiron R Series of notebooks Dell announced today, the company also revealed the new Vostro 3000 Series of business laptops.  According to Dell, these laptops deliver more than 12 hours of battery life on select models and are the first small business laptops to feature SRS Premium Voice Pro. The Dell Vostro 3000 Series is available in 13-, 14-, 15- and 17-inch models. The series is powered by the latest Intel 2nd generation Core I series. The new Vostro 3000 series will be available starting March 22. Small Businesses Collaborate In Style with New Vostro 3000 Series Durable,... Read more...
It lives, it lives! The Vostro line lives! We're only kidding, but it has been some time since Dell took the time to radically update the lower-end, low-key Vostro lineup. That changes today with the new Vostro V130, a gorgeous new mobile PC that any road warrior should take into consideration. Dell claims that this is one of the thinnest and lightest ultraportables in the 13" form factor, and we have all ideas that Apple's recently released 13" MacBook Air is one of the reasons it can't be "the" thinnest/lightest in that size. However, the V130 is the first ultra-thin laptop to offer Hyperbaric... Read more...
Mmm, don't you love the sweet scent of corporate upgrade season? It's the most wonderful time of the year! For those offices that can't justify the bulk purchase of Dell's Precision M4500, there's the new Vostro 3000. This machine slides into Dell's "affordable" business lineup, one that has become progressively more attractive over the years in terms of design and sheer value. Aimed directly at small business users (but fully capable of handling your minor road warrior spells), the new Vostro 3000 series can be outfitted with an optional Core i7 Quad-Core CPU (on the Vostro 3700), while the Vostro...

Let's face it: for as cool as the Adamo XPS is, it's hardly a reasonably priced machine. Even if you've got the cash, you know you're paying a huge premium for the seductive form factor. Just weeks after that 9.99mm thick machine launched, Dell has now introduced what could easily be mistaken as the Adamo XPS' weaker sibling: the Vostro V13.What's wild is just how similar this new Vostro looks compared to the Adamo XPS. What's even wilder is that the Vostro line has generally held boring, all-business notebooks that most consumers simply overlooked in favor of the more fashionable Adamo and Studio... Read more...
By and large, Dell's Vostro range is still largely unappreciated and under the radar. The Latitude line seems to get way more attention in business uses, and the Inspiron line gets way more love from consumers. And of course, the XPS/Alienware line gets all the attention from gamers. The Vostro line, however, still stands out as offering a real value to consumers who just need a basic machine to handle basic tasks. If that's you, and you're scouting a new tower, the Vostro 430 might be "the one."Granted, we're not entirely sure we'd agree with Dell's assertion that the Vostro 430 is "future proof"--we...

You know, Dell's Vostro lineup is really turning into one to watch. While it's admittedly aimed at the business users in the crowd, a lot of the systems are perfectly suitable for everyday consumers. Take the company's newest offerings, for instance. The Vostro 1014, 1015 and 1088 are all attractive notebooks with a decent array of specifications and an even more reasonable price tag. Oh, and did we mention that the look the part as well? While none of the three appear to be ready for selling on Dell's website, here's what we know about the trio. They offer up 14.1" and 15.6" displays, the latest... Read more...
Earlier this week, we were blown away by how stylish eMachine's newest all-in-one PC was. Clearly, the engineers at Dell aren't taking the competition lightly, as the company's newest Vostro is just as much a looker. The new all-in-one desktop is actually aimed at small business owners, but we could totally see this fitting into pretty much any home office. Dell claims that this machine can morph from "box to business in less than four minutes," and with the optional VESA mount, you can just clamp this onto a desk or wall in order to save lots of desk space. As for specs, you'll find a selection... Read more...
Dell's Vostro lineup never has been flashy. Instead, it has relied on an all-business approach that keeps costs down, style at a minimum and specs decent. The latest in the family, the Vostro 1220, follows right in line by offering a decent array of specifications at a price that's certainly respectable.The 12.1" ultraportable is tailor made for those who can't quite see themselves using a minuscule netbook. According to Dell, the laptop was designed exclusively for business travelers who are unwilling to compromise performance, battery life and security for a thin and lightweight design. The unit...

With all the hubbub surrounding Dell's growing Inspiron Mini family and the flashy new Adamo, we had practically forgotten about the all-business Vostro line. Dell has just jarred our memories by giving the 13", 15" and 17" versions a slight makeover and throwing in a few upgrades that definitely make our mouths water. 1720 all come bundled with Video Chat software if the For starters, the 13.3-inch Vostro 1320, the 15.4-inch Vostro 1520, and the 17-inch Vostrowebcam/microphone option is selected, giving users an instant way to start video calling right out of the box. Seeing that these are aimed... Read more...
All right, they didn't really give Vostro laptop owners the meaty middle digit.  However, they gave them something that would require a reconfiguration of your typing mindset: a screwed-up keyboard layout.Flickr user Jake Gordon is angry. He ordered a new Dell Vostro with a UK keyboard and found that Dell has monkeyed subtly with the bottom row of keys, rendering the computer useless for anyone who touch-types.Of course, that only matters if you touch-type.  Check out the keyboard below and compare the placement of the Z (should be between the A and S) vs. the above normal keyboard.
