Dell Vostro 2510 Ad  (Source: Engadget)
Vostro 2510 is aimed at the business user

Every year when back-to-school time rolls around, hoards of laptops are released and prices drop to try to lure shoppers to purchase. A new business-focused notebook from Dell called the Vostro 2510 has surfaced in an ad inside a Dell Business Flyer for August 2008 reports Engadget.

According to the ad that surfaced, the Dell Vostro 2510 will be available starting at $899. Details from the ad show for your money you get an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, Vista Business, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 160GB HDD, 256MB NVIDIA 8400M GS graphics and a webcam built-in.

In the ad pictured on Engadget, a URL is given, and at the time of writing the URL gives a page not found error. Engadget reports that the page was available before. The Canadian Dell site does have specs available for the notebook with prices starting at $1,159 CAD.

The Vostro 2510 base notebook uses an Intel Core 2 Duo T5670 CPU running at 1.8GHz. Optional CPUs for the notebook include the Core 2 Duo T5870 and Core 2 Duo T9500. The operating system can be upgraded from Vista Business to Vista Ultimate. Two options are available for the display including the standard 15.4-inch wide screen WXGA+ and the optional 15.4-inch UltraSharp WUXGA.

The Vostro 2510 can be optioned with up to 4GB of RAM and a 250GB HDD or a 32GB SSD. The SSD option adds $230 CND to the price. A Blu-ray drive is optional as is Dell 802.11n wireless networking. Battery choices include a 6-cell Li-Ion or a 9-cell Li-Ion. The 2510 weighs 5.72 pounds with the 6-cell battery and measures 14.6-inches wide x 1 to 1.5-inch high x 10.16-inches deep.

Earlier this week, Dell announced a lower cost notebook called the Inspiron 13 that retails for under $700.

Hey InsidiousAngel

Try buying a Thinkpad for your IT staff... if you do, you'll feel like all brands are Fisher-Price feeling after using them for a few days...

Thinkpads blow goats. Get a Toughbook. Crap specs, heavy weight, and can fall off the Sears Tower without breaking. All for a price tag that'll choke your boss.

I used to use a Toughbook CF-74. We had them at work and I hauled it along for a training class in the states. Rugged as hell, but hauling around a 10 lbs laptop (not really the weight) through an airport blows.

I've always found the weight of a notebook which is about 5-8 Kilo's isn't -that- much of a drama for me, That little bit of weight doesn't hurt me in anyway, and probably does more good than harm exercise wise, probably why I usually just chuck my laptop under my arms and I'm off.

I don't know why people complain about the weight that much is it really such a big issue these days for everything to be Light Weight? Or am I just easy going and not bothered by such things, and never even include such things on a checklist when buying Notebooks?
