Lets face it, the Adamo XPS is a fad. It’s a piece of work to look at sure but can it even pace with the competition (the Macbook Air)? No. The Dell Vostro V13 however, the Adamo XPS’s little brother, looks as if it hits the sweet sport of form, performance and price just right.
With the Vostro V13 you have 3 processors to choose from
Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 @ 1.3GHz
Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 @ 1.4GHz
Intel Celeron 743 @ 1.2GHz
and the standard specs of:
13.3″ LED-backlit display @ 1366×768 pixels
Up to 4GB DDR3 RAM
Mobile Intel GS45 Express Chipset
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD
Up to 500GB 7200rpm HDD
