Dell Vostro 1220 Leak

Dell is planning to introduce a fourth, smaller Vostro notebook for the near future, a leak shows. The Vostro 1220 as seen by Engadget would have a thick but small profile with a 12-inch screen and, like larger models, get the option of a red shell. This bulk will also afford room for ExpressCard and SD card slots as well as a fingerprint reader.

The example tested is relatively well-equipped for its size and has a 2.1GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. It's not known where this would sit in terms of pricing, but it's unlikely to be a base model as the Vostro 1330 starts with a 2GHz Celeron, 2GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. A similar-spec 1330 normally sells for $1,339 but is on sale right now at Dell for $799.

An actual ship date is also unknown.
