Dell Kicks Netbooks to the Curb With Ultra-Thin V13 for $450

Super-thin notebooks are all the rage, but they invariably come at a big price premium. Dell proved that with the release of the swanky Adamo XPS, a notebook just 0.65-inches thick for $1,799. It was looking like super-thin notebooks would never be priced for the masses, until the Vostro V13 appeared from Dell. The specs of the V13 are very respectable, especially considering the price tag of $450:

  • 13.3-inch screen
  • An ultra-low voltage Core 2 processor
  • 4GB of DDR3 RAM pre-loaded
  • Bluetooth and 802.11g/n
  • An integrated webcam and microphone

All of this is crammed into a case just 0.65-inches thick and weighing in at a svelte 3.5 pounds. It looks like the Vostro V13 can make a serious run at the more anemic netbooks, without taking much more from the wallet.
