Dell intros restyled biz laptops

Vostro 3000 line debuts

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Dell has introduced a set of new Vostro notebooks, pitching the products as "a range of new thin, lightweight and durable laptop computers".

The line-up comprises the 3300, 3400, 3500 and 3700, each with a 13.3in, 14in, 15.6in and 17.3in - as you might guess from the second digit in each model number - screen.

Dell's Vostro 3500: lots of options

All four series come with a choice of Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, and either those CPUs' on-die integrated graphics or discrete Nvidia GeForce 310M GPUs.

Add to that 2-4GB of 1066MHz DDR 3 memory, 250GB to 500GB of 7200rpm Sata storage, multi-format DVD burners, 2Mp webcams, HDMI, eSata, USB, Firewire, Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n Wi-Fi, and you've got all the key hardware specs.

All the laptops comes as standard with Windows 7 Home Premium - an odd choice for nominally business-centric machines such as these - but it's only the 32-bit version.

Nb. it's 20.1-28.6mm, since you ask

The Vostros come in a range of colours, including "Aberdeen Silver", "Lucerne Red" and "Brisbane Bronze" - though whether Brisbane, Queensland or Brisbane, California, Dell didn't say.

Prices start at £369. ®
