Dell has updated the Vostro notebook series in the USA, with two new models: Dell Vostro 13 5000 (5390) with Intel Whiskey Lake and GeForce MX250 and Vostro 15 7000 (7590) with Intel Coffee Lake and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650.
More and more often, Dell transfers to the “business-oriented” notebook series some of the elements that have made consumer laptop families popular over time. And it is for this reason that, in recent years, the Dell Vostro, Latitude and Precision notebooks seem more beautiful, thinner and lighter. The new Dell Vostro 13 5000 (5390) is no exception: this small notebook, intended for small-medium businesses, has a thickness of 15 millimeters and a weight of 1.17Kg. It will be available from mid-May in the USA at the starting price of $ 849, but we will hardly see it in our country as the Vostro 5000 series has not been updated for some time, except for Dell Vostro 14 (5481).
As far as we know, the entry-level configuration of the Dell Vostro 13 5390 will probably feature an Intel Core i3-8145U (Whiskey Lake) , with 4GB of RAM and 128GB on PCIe NVMe SSD drives, but we are confident that they will also be available optionally more powerful chips like Intel Core i7-8565U , up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage, with support for an Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics card . We would like to point out that the RAM is soldered to the motherboard, so it cannot be updated, a somewhat disappointing solution especially for a top-of-the-range 8GB of memory.
All models are equipped with a 13.3-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixel) non-touch display in a chassis constructed of aluminum and plastic. The American company adds optional support for a fingerprint reader integrated in the power button, a backlit keyboard and a battery to choose between a 45Wh and a 52Wh model. The data sheet is completed by an audio jack for headphones, an HDMI 1.4b , a USB 3.1 Type-A port and a Type-C.
Dell has also launched a new Vostro 15 7000 (7590) with a 15.6-inch display, support for an Intel Core hexa-core processor (Coofee Lake) and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics. This model measures 17 millimeters in thickness and has a weight of 1.85Kg with a 56Wh battery. It will be available starting May 16 in the US with prices from $ 1149, but there are also hopes of being able to buy it in india, given that the model currently on sale is its predecessor Dell Vostro 15 7000 (
