Dell Intros Three More Vostro Notebooks: 1014, 1015 and 1088

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 Core 2 Duo processors, improved battery life (though no specific figure is given--big surprise!), a built-in 5-in-1 card reader, optional webcam (2.0MP) and your choice of three color options: black, deep cherry red and blue. There's also an integrated modem for times when Wi-Fi feels so far away.

Dell tells us that these are already being offered in select parts of Europe starting at just over $300, and they'll be available in Asia/Japan shortly. North Americans will have to wait for "several more months" before being able to dive in--patience, patience!
