These are key ingredients that company founders must possess to start – and successfully grow – a small business. Here at Dell, we understand the challenges facing small businesses today and have built our products and advisory services to enable them to scale, thrive and remain a competitive force in the marketplace, starting with our Vostro line.This is why we are thrilled to launch our new Vostros. The Vostro 13 5000 is the thinnest and lightest Vostro ever, designed for on-the-go business professionals. This portable 13” notebook is just 14.9mm thin with a weight as light as 1.18kg (2.6lb) and is encased in an aluminum cover that is both durable and sleek. The FHD display is surrounded by a 3-sided narrow border, which was made possible with the new 2.7mm HD webcam. While the HD camera provides a clear viewing experience, Waves MaxxAudio Pro boosts volume and SmartByte software ensures video-conferencing applications receive network bandwidth priority to reduce buffering, making it the perfect laptop for on-the-go business professionals who need to attend meetings from anywhere.To add to the lineup, the Vostro 15 7000 is our newest 15” laptop catered to professionals who need a high-performance computer that looks stylish, while keeping cost down.
