Dell has announced the Dell Vostro 1310, their newest 13.3-inch laptop, powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo (all the way up to the 2.6GHz T9500) and offering a choice of either Intel’s X3100 integrated graphics or NVIDIA GeForce 8400M dedicated graphics (with 128MB of separate memory). It is cheaper than the Dell XPS M1330, but some options can push it up there.
According to Dell’s new Small Business Blog, the Vostro 1310 offers basically the same amount of screen as the older Vostro 1400, but weighs in at around 20% less. It also offers a slot-load optical drive. It ships without any trialware (or bloatware or crapware as some of us call it). NotebookReview.com has also put together a review of it (link below).
Prices start at: Â£329 (UK), 449 Euros (Ireland), or $749 (US) and it looks like it will be available world-wide. Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) can start ordering and customizing now. North and South America can start on May 1, and Asia Pacific and Japan can start on May 5. There is also a 15.4″ 1510 and 17″ 1710.
