Dell unleashes Vostro 1014, 1015 and 1088 laptops

Dell's Vostro lineup, targeted at small businesses, is growing with the addition of three entry-level 14.1 and 15.6-inch systems - the 1014, 1015 and 1088.

The notebooks have Intel Core 2 processors, upt 4GB of RAM and improved battery life thanks to WLED LCD displays. There's 5400RPM HDDs that come in capacities of up to 320GB along with 5-in-one card readers and an optional integrated 2-megapixel webcam. There's also draft-n Wi-Fi.

So how do they differ? Well, the 1014 and 1015 only differ in screen size, with the former having a 14.1-inch display, and the latter packing 15.6 inches of diagonal action. The 1088 has a 14.1-inch screen too, but carries a weightier graphics solution, with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 surpassing the Intel integrated graphics of the 1014 and 1015.

Pricing is yet to be fully detailed, but starts at £255. All are fully customizable, so you can pay as much or as little as you want to, for more or fewer features. They're available now in Europe, will be rolling out the Asia over the next week, and are due in North America "over the next several months".
