"TORONTO, August 11, 2011 – Dell today introduced the Vostro V131, a thin, powerful, and sleek addition to the award-winning Vostro laptop line. As one of the lightest and thinnest products in the Vostro portfolio, the Vostro V131 is designed specifically for small business customers. An ultrathin, ultra-stylish chassis houses up to Intel® Core i3 and i5 processors, making the Vostro V131 a portable powerhouse engineered to maximize business productivity. A removable 6-cell battery with 2nd generation Intel Core processors, both available as an option, will deliver up to 9.5 hours of battery life[i], allowing users to work virtually anytime, anywhere."
Targeting enterprise customers, the V131 is Dell's latest ultrathin Vostro, with a choice of i3 and i5 processors, and a optional 9-cell battery providing up to 9.5-hours of use. Sounds like a good road-warrior system. And Dell has an option for a backlit keyboard, so this goes on my short list for replacing my Dell D430. Availability is listed by Dell as September in the USA, with a starting price of about $499, and, as is usual for Dell, options abound.
