Dell's Sexy New Super Slim Vostro V13

dell logoMeasuring in at 0.65 inches thick Dell's new Vostro V13 is super slim and super sleek and I want one now! With a starting price of only $449 this super-thin laptop from Dell is definitely an eye catcher and a like win for Dell.

The new Vostro V13 comes with options for either a 1.2GHz Celeron, 1.3GHz Core 2 Duo or 1.4GHz Core 2 Solo with integrated Intel X4500MHD graphics, a 13.3-inch screen, up to 320GB of hard drive storage and up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM. For operating systems you get your choice of Ubuntu Linux version 9.04 for the base package or Windows 7 Home Premium, Business or Professional for the upgraded models.

As with most ultra thin laptops there is no option for an optical drive, users instead can opt for an external drive or simply do without. Its powered by a six-cell lithium-ion battery with a purported five-hour run time on a single charge.

One key note is the battery is integrated directly into the case, much like unibody Mac notebooks. Which means that the battery will not be user serviceable so should you ever need to replace the battery, you'll have to get your machine serviced via Dell or an authorized tech.

For now the V13 is targeted at small and medium businesses, initially launching on the Dell Small Business Site. Given the sleek design and ultra portability its likely the average consumer will be intrigued by the Vostro V13 as well.

All I have to say is after looking at the price and sizes of the V13 I want one. The 13" screen offers plenty of viewable space and the CPU, RAM and HDD options are exactly in-line with what I'd want from my next laptop. With the light weight of only 3.5 pounds and only 0.65 inches thick it should be perfect for totting around just about anywhere. It would be a perfect match for this blogger while he's on the go!
