The Dell Vostro V13 is an extremely thin, lightweight laptop designed for consumers who need something on the go that won't weigh them down. The laptop is as thin as 0.65 inches and has a starting weight of 3.5 pounds. The processor is designed to use a very low voltage which makes the laptop as a whole more energy efficient and lengthens the life of the battery. The Dell Vostro V13 includes an integrated webcam and a microphone so it can be used for web conferencing or recording. The laptop comes comes with Windows 7 installed and has room for up to 4GB of memory, pretty decent for an extremely thin laptop. It also includes safety measures for the security conscious, including optional full-data-encrypted hard drives.
