Dell expands Vostro laptops, announces Vostro 1220 laptop
Dell announced the latest addition to its expanding line of Vostro laptops, the 12.1" Vostro 1220. This stylish, ultraportable laptop was designed exclusively for business travelers who are unwilling to compromise performance, battery life and security for a thin and lightweight design.
Available in Obsidian Black or Deep Cherry Red, the Vostro 1220 starts at a mere 3.36 lbs, is equipped with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors and features up to 9 hours of battery life on a 6-cell battery, making it an ideal travelling companion for on-the-go, global entrepreneurs.
According to IDC, worldwide commercial shipments of 12" widescreen laptops are expected to grow almost 35 percent from 2008 to 2009. "This trend supports what Dell has been hearing from our customers," said Sam Burd, global vice president, Dell Small and Medium Business. "Today's globe-trotting entrepreneurs need a laptop that is powerful and long-lasting. That used to mean carrying around an ungainly device, the Vostro 1220 combines performance, built-in security and long battery life with useful features like videoconferencing to be the ideal weapon of choice for any road warrior."
