For an entry-level 12.1-inch ultraportable, the Vostro 1220 sure is pretty. An upgrade from the Vostro 1200, this series targets the SMB user who might want to save a few bucks and doesn't need the high-end features like the Centrino vPro platform in the Latitude lineup.
Sporting a glossy red or black chassis, this laptop comes with Core 2 Duo performance and an impressive battery life of up to nine hours with the extended cell. Weighing about 3.4 pounds with the standard six-cell battery and integrated optical drive, this machine is surprisingly affordable, starting at $799.
Optional extras include a fingerprint sensor, solid-state drive, integrated Webcam, hard-disk encryption, and mobile broadband radio. The machine is available globally starting Tuesday.
