Ultra-portable Vostro V13 Small-Business Laptop

Ultra-portable Dell Vostro V13 Small-Business Laptop Lightens the Load of Business Travellers this Holiday Season

ROUND ROCK, TX and Auckland, New Zealand, Dec. 8, 2009 Focused on bringing value through innovative IT products, Dell announced its next “must have” mobile entrepreneurs’ business accessory, the 13.3-inch Vostro V13. The latest addition to its small-business line of Vostro laptops, the Vostro V13 is conveniently-sized but packed with laptop power and efficiency.

Starting at NZ$1,299.00 with Core 2 processor, the V13 combines premium design and worry-free security. The V13, like the entire Vostro line, is backed by dedicated and specially trained small-business sales and support experts, and features a suite of customisable service and support solutions designed specifically for small business.

“Not long ago, business travellers like me had to choose mobility and affordability at the expense of performance. That’s no longer the case with the V13,” said Sam Burd, global vice president, Dell Small and Medium Business. “This 13-inch small business laptop is in a category all its own as entrepreneurs now have quality performance, battery life and security combined with a thin and lightweight design sturdy enough for today’s business.”

Designed exclusively for small-business frequent travellers, the Vostro V13 is:
• As thin as 16.5mm and starts at 1.59kg2;
• Equipped with ultra-low-voltage Intel® (ULV) processors to manage energy efficiency, while providing ample power for everyday computing; and
• Encased in high-quality brushed aluminum with reinforced zinc hinges ready for rough handling.

“Ultrathin laptops with processors in the ULV class compare favourably with netbooks,” said Roger Kay, founder and president of Endpoint Technologies Associates. “The value proposition for small business travellers is simple: for slightly more money, you get all the portability you want but a lot better experience.”
