Dell updates Vostro laptops with Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs

By on March 9, 2010, 11:28 AM
Dell has announced an update to its line of business-oriented laptops that will bring new designs and improved performance. The new Vostro 3000 series is made up of four models: the 13.3-inch 3300, 14.0-inch 3400, 15.6-inch 3500 and the 17.3-inch 3700. All feature the latest processors technology from Intel, including several Core i3 or i5 dual-core options on all models and a Core i7 quad-core configuration on the Vostro 3700.


Each system can also carry up to 6GB of RAM, a 500GB HDD, an extended 9-cell battery and discrete graphics. The two smaller systems have the option of a GeForce 310M, while the Vostro 3700 can use a 1GB GeForce GT 330M. A touch screen display option for the 15.6-inch model will be available in April. Other features include a built-in webcam, optical drive, HDMI-out and all the connectivity options you'd expect from a business laptop.

The systems come housed in thin aluminum shells and will ship in bronze, red or silver colors. Pricing is not half bad, either -- the Dell Vostro 3300 will start at $669, the 3400 and 3500 will start at $649, and the 3700 will start at $679. All models include a year of Dell ProSupport and CompleteCare.
