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.

I think its not too late to provide your buyers the option to choose between Nvidia & AMD/ATU.

Let the buyer choose/decide what he wants on this laptop.

Those software updates serve as a workaround to the problem that persist Nvidia products.

As an analyst puts in simple language-

"It all points to substantial execution problems which we do not believe the company can dramatically fix in one or two quarters."


Form 8-K for NVIDIA CORP- states the following-

There can be no assurance that we will not discover defects in other MCP or GPU products.

Just a suggestion.....
