Vostro 1200 designed for mobility

Smallest And Lightest Vostro Notebook Rounds Out Dell’s Product Portfolio For Small Firms

Vostro 1200 designed for mobility

AUCKLAND, Dec. 20, 2007-–Dell today announced the Vostro 1200, a thin and light 12 inch notebook computer designed specifically to meet the mobility needs of small and medium businesses.

With a starting weight of 1.9 kilograms the Vostro 1200 is the lightest model in Dell's Vostro range but still boasts Intel Core2 Duo processors, internal optical drive and road-ready construction for its $1,199 starting price. Options include an integrated 2MP camera with dual digital microphones, fingerprint reader and 802.11n WiFi connectivity.

Dell's Vostro (Latin for “yours”) product family is designed to help reduce the cost, time and complexity of managing information technology for small and medium business customers.
Developed in direct response to customer feedback, Vostro branded products have no trialware and offer simple to use tools that address top-of-mind problems such as data back-up, PC performance and health, plus specialised networking support for customers without dedicated IT staff.

“Vostro changes the game for small business owners by letting them to choose the exact IT solutions they need to be successful,” said Robert Vinokurov, Dell's Marketing Director for Vostro Product Solutions in Asia-Pacific and Japan.

“This new notebook offers mainstream performance in a form factor that will appeal to business travellers for whom size and weight are key decision-making criteria.”

Importantly, the Vostro 1200 is available with either Windows Vista or XP factory installed. Nearly twelve months after the release of Vista, Dell continues to give customers the choice opting for Windows XP on 31 different models -- more than three quarters of its total range -- including all of its business notebook and desktop systems.

The Vostro 1200, like all Vostro, Inspiron and XPS models, can be recycled free of charge by Dell at the end of the product's life.
