Dell introduced the 3000 series of laptops to its Vostro line for small businesses. There are four Vostro 3000 series laptops: 13-, 14-, 15-, and 17-inch models. Dell's primary market for the Vostro family is smaller companies with little or no internal IT support. The newest members will ship with Intel's recently corrected Core i3, i5, or i7 processors, also known by their codename Sandy Bridge.
The laptops include fingerprint scan security. Optional 8-cell and 9-cell batteries run for around 12 hours, according to Dell. The 13-inch 3350 comes with a 4-cell battery; the larger models ship standard with 6-cell batteries. The laptops are offered in three worldly colors: "Brisbane Bronze," "Lucerne Red," and "Aberdeen Silver." Pricing starts between $499 and $599 across the four models.
