Dell Vostro 1015 now shipping for business users
After introducing it in August, Dell is now shipping the 15.6-inch Vostro 1015 notebook PC meant for business users. The range starts at $429 and tops out at $629, though buyers can also specify other standalone options. The entry-level model includes a 2.2GHz Celeron 900 CPU and Windows Vista Home Basic preloaded onto its 160GB hard drive.
All other models get Windows 7, with the top-rung Vostro 1015 powered by a 2.1GHz Core 2 Duo T6670, Windows 7 Professional on the 320GB hard drive and 3GB of RAM. There is also a dual-layer DVD burner, a 2-megapixel camera and a Wi-Fi connection. All Vostro 1015s have a six cell battery and graphics are handled by Intel's GMA 4500MHD integrated processor.
