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.

Public sector organisations make a soft target for fraudsters because budget and resource shortages frequently leave hospitals short-changed when it comes to security basics like regular software patching," said Tony Rowan, Chief Security Consultant at SentinelOne. "The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.
