Dell Vostro 2510: 15.4

Dell‘s Vostro 2510 can be considered a stylish business-class notebook PC. The Vostro stylish is quite bland but Dell has added a touch of color to it to make it a bit more fashion conscious. The starting price is quite aggressive given the specifications, but the price can build quickly. For instance, upgrading from the 1.8GHz T5670 CPU to the 2.60GHz T9500 will require an additional $500. You want Blu-ray write capability? Tack on another $535. Gotta have 802.11n? An additional $49-$59 is required. Want the Vostro 2510 to last a bit more on battery? The 85WHr 9-cell will be $100 extra. The final price ends up more than US$2400. For that kind of money, it might be wise to go with an alternative, such as Sony’s newly introduced and reviewed FW Series. But there seems to be a special option for the 15.4″ LCD.

The 15.4″ notebook PC gives you the option of either a 1440 x 900 or 1920 x 1200 pixel format LCD, at least that’s what Dell states in the “Tech Specs” tab. However, when you actually start to customize the Vostro 2510, all three “Featured Systems” (Mobile Power Package, Extreme Performance Package, Enhanced Services Package) configurable models do not give you the option of a 1920 x 1200 LCD. That’s too bad since you could have rocked a Full HD 1080p capable notebook PC with Blu-ray in a 15.4″ notebook PC.
