Dell Brings Adamo Design to Budget Laptop

Filed under
Hardware
Ubuntu

Dell on Tuesday introduced the budget Vostro V13 laptop, which bears a resemblance to the company's super-thin Adamo luxury laptop, but is close to three times cheaper.

The V13 laptop, which is priced starting at US$449, measures 0.65 inches (16.5 mm) at its thinnest point, as does the Adamo model that is currently available. The new laptop weighs about 3.5 pounds (1.6 kilograms), half a pound less than the Adamo. The Adamo is priced starting at $1,499, and has a 13.4-inch screen, while the V13 has a 13.3-inch screen.

The V13 laptop is targeted at small and medium businesses and comes with advanced support options. The $449 configuration comes with the Ubuntu Linux OS and an Intel Celeron processor, while the $649 configuration includes the Windows 7 OS.

The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
