Dell’s upcoming 12-inch budget notebook, the Vostro 1220, has leaked, and it scores a few points for being neither CULV nor Atom based. Instead, the Vostro 1220 gets an Intel Core 2 Duo T6750 processor, up to 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard-drive, plus a DVD burner.
There’s also an ExpressCard slot, SD card reader and biometric fingerprint security. Ports seemingly include three USB 2.0, ethernet, a modem, VGA and audio in/out, and there’s a row of handy touch-sensitive media control buttons above the keyboard.
We’re not sure of pricing or availability for the Dell Vostro 1220, but it’s likely to be on the cheap end of the scale. It could very well take the place of the Dell Inspiron Mini 12, the demise of which has been rumored since February.
