The Dell Vostro V13 is a 13.3-inch designed for business owners who need the power of a regular laptop with a more convenient packaging.
Everything from its design, to its memory capabilities are aimed to please small business owners who need the size of a netbook paired with the power of a larger sized laptop computer. Dell hopes that the Vostro will minimize tradeoffs between a laptop that is compact enough for travel and one that has all the necessary components for business owners.
The V13 is yet another well designed addition to the Vostro collection, and will start off at a no nonsense $1,299.

Before the laptop came to the market, PCs dominated. Later, a new, cheaper alternative came to the scene: the netbook. For students and budget buyers, the netbook seemed like a God-send. They were nearly as powerful, but were also smaller and more portable.
Now it looks like the laptop is fighting back with a new contender: The Acer Aspire 5516-5474, weighing in at 6 pounds, double the average weight for your standard netbook. At $279, this is a bargain to just about anyone, shaving some $300 off the price of other new ultra-thin laptops.
This bargain laptop computer is also a little power-house, featuring an AMD-Athlon TF-20 64bit Processor running a 1.6 GHz CPU, 2GB of DDR2 RAM (PC2-5300), and a 160GB Serial ATA hard drive. It also has a crisp 15.6″ display.
This laptop comes with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Service Pack 1, as well as a host of other programs, making it ready for anything you’d want to throw at it (apart from your cup of coffee!)
