Wireless provider AT&T has been beefing up the number of notebook and netbooks that it offers with subsidized integrated 3G WWAN. The new notebook is one of the Dell machines that AT&T has announced the addition of with embedded mobile broadband.
Dell is also offering notebooks and netbooks from Dell’s Inspiron, Latitude, Precision, and XPS lines all with integrated 3G broadband connectivity. Bought with AT&T 3G in-place, the carrier is offering a $120 mail-in rebate on the Vostro 1520 which means the notebook starts as low as $633 monthly with a 2-year DataConnect 5GB limit data plan.
Base level Vostro 1520 laptops on Dell.com start at $519 with more fully-spec’d machines going up to $739. Obviously using separate mobile broadband with those, however, will require an external modem; not quite as neat a solution as the Vostro 1520.
