Dell launches Vostro 2510

Posted by SG on Saturday, August 2, 2008

With the introduction of Centrino 2, most manufactureres are gearing up to introduce new models with the new processors. Not to be left behind, Dell introduced Vostro 2510. It’s a Business Notebook with an emphasis to look like a non-business type notebook. Basically it’s not like a boxy business notebook. The specs are as follows :

  • Intel Core 2 Duo processor T5670 (1.8GHz, 2MB L2 cache), T5870 (2.0GHz, 2MB cache) or T9500 (2.6GHz, 6MB cache)
  • 2GB, 3GB or 4GB DDR2 667MHz RAM
  • 15.4in 1,440 x 900 or 1,920 x 1,200 panel
  • 256MB nVidia GeForce 8400M GS
  • 160GB or 320GB 5400rmp or 250GB 7200 hard drive
  • Draft-N Wireless option
  • Blu-ray drive option

The notebook’s keyboard & speakers look a lot like some of the Sony Vaio’s & Apple’s Macbook Pro which is not a bad thing as Vaio & MBP are considered one of the better looking notebooks out there.
