Dell’s Updated Vostro Laptops Offer Small Businesses Relief for Strained Budgets with Complete Videoconferencing Solutions

ROUND ROCK, Texas—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 2, 2009— Dell introduces its newest Vostro™ laptops, designed expressly to meet small business needs and custom-built to maximize productivity amidst shrinking travel budgets with free, pre-installed videoconferencing and webcam software with purchase of integrated webcam and microphone.

In the current economy, small businesses are relying on productivity and collaboration solutions more heavily than ever as a cost-effective alternative to business travel. According to a recent study by the Association of Corporate Travel Executives[1], 71 percent of businesses plan to spend less on travel in 2009. IDC predicts that by the close of this year, close to 35 percent of SMBs will be using some form of videoconferencing[2].

“Through our direct relationships, we understand what small businesses care about most - staying productive everywhere, staying secure, and staying up and running without fail,” said Sam Burd, global vice president, Dell Small and Medium Business. “Customer-driven innovation is the core of our DNA. Today, SMBs need effortless videoconferencing solutions and world-class data security in an affordable package and that is what the latest Vostro laptops provide.”

The News:

  • Redesigned Vostro laptops include the 13.3-inch Vostro 1320, the 15.4-inch Vostro 1520, and the 17-inch Vostro 1720. Products are available today in North America and select South American countries, followed by Europe, Middle East and Africa on April 7, and select Asian countries in May.
