Dell Vostro 1220 12.1-inch ultraportable gets official in Japan

Dell Japan have officially announced the Vostro 1220, the budget notebook we saw leaked earlier this month.  The 12.1-inch 1280 x 800 notebook uses processors from Intel's Centrino 2 range, together with the GM45 Express chipset, weighs 1.52kg and promises up to 9hrs runtime from the larger 6-cell battery option.

There's also a choice of 160GB 5,400rpm or 250/320GB 7,200rpm hard-drives, a DVD burner and gigabit ethernet, together with WiFi a/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1.  A webcam and microphone are integrated into the display bezel, plus there's a fingerprint reader for security.

The Dell Vostro 1220 is being targeted at small businesses, and will be available in two colors: black or red.  It'll go on sale in Japan from today, priced from 79,980 yen ($838).
