Dell unveils new Vostro 3000 notebooks with Core CPUs

Dell has been peddling its Vostro line of business notebooks for a long time now and one of the coolest of the Vostro lot is the Vostro V13 with its Adamo looks and cheaper price tag. Dell has now added a complete new series to the Vostro line called the 3000 series.

The new 3000 line has machines sporting 13, 14, 15, and 17-inch screens and will be offered with Core i3, i5, and i7 processors. The 13-inch 3300 machine will sell for $788, the 3400 is a 14-inch machine starting at $768, the 3500 is a 15-inch machine for $768, and the 17-inch 3700 machine in $798.

You can opt for discrete graphics with prices jumping up significantly. The 13 and 15-inch machines can get discrete graphics with 512MB of VRAM and the 17-inch offering gets a discrete GPU with 1GB of VRAM. Pricing when adding discrete graphics jumps up considerably. The machines will also all feature backlit keyboards, encrypted HDDs will be optional, and fingerprint readers. The 3500 will reportedly come in a touchscreen version by April. The line is available in the US right now and will hit Europe later this month.
