"Aimed at the business user, the Vostro series from Dell is today getting a little bit of a face lift and the new V130 is the one we’re checking out. Packing some sweet goodies, the V130 looks like it’s going to indeed hit the spot for the user on the go. Checking out the specifications of the V130 we’ve got on hand, it’s very business-like. We’ve got an Intel i5 470UM which is a Dual Core 1.33GHz CPU that has a total of four threads thanks to HyperThreading. We’ve got a single 4GB DDR3 memory module clocked at 800MHz DDR and graphics is provided by Intel in the form of Arrandale which carries only very basic features with a 166MHz core clock.
Storage comes in the form of a single 500GB HDD. The screen is a 13.3” Anti-Glare LED lit LCD Panel which carries a native resolution of 1366 x 768, which is slightly above “HD” (or 1280 x 720, otherwise known as 720p). Other little extras include a built in camera that sits just above the screen, wireless 802.11b/g/n, Gigabit Networking and Bluetooth. Power is made possible with a 6-Cell Lithium Ion sealed battery. Everything is tied together with a copy of Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and very little bloat ware."
