Dell rolls out slicker, sexier Vostros -

In somewhat cheesy fashion, Dell announced on Tuesday that it “celebrates entrepreneurial spirit with new VostroTM Laptops.” And by celebrates, we assume Dell means “sees a lucrative market for.”

But cynicism aside, the new Vostro 3000 series certainly does look rather tasty for a business lappy, boasting a plethora of performance options and feature flavours.

Core i5s, Core i7s and even mind-blowing Quad Core cor-blimey i7s will be on offer to punters coughing up for new Vostros, which also come in a range of businessy silver, red or bronze colours and screen sizes ranging from 13 to 17 inches.

The basic 13-inch 3300, for instance, comes complete with an Intel Core i5 processor and an inbuilt optical drive in its slimline chassis.

Meanwhile the 14-inch Vostro 3400 purports to offer “a full day of mobile productivity with up to 8 hours of battery life with an optional nine cell battery,” although any business person who is only clocking an eight hour workday is probably not in for promotion any time soon.

Dell boasts that all new Vostros have “embedded webcam and microphone for collaboration through videoconferencing,” or chatroulette if one is bored in a meeting we presume.

All the Vostros come with the option to add a galumphing big GPU from Nvidia and the 3500 and 3700 also offer the option of high definition WLED screens.

Slick stuff, Dell.
