Growing Businesses Thrive with Dell Vostro Laptops and Dedicated Services

Dell today announced the Vostro 3360, 3460 and 3560 laptops designed to deliver strong performance and security with IT support crafted specifically for growing businesses. These new Vostro laptops are easy to configure, easy to maintain, highly productive, and feature the latest technology and business-critical security and support at a great value.

"Growing a business takes more than just hardware; you need to have a solid support system in place to scale and succeed," said Sam Burd, vice president, Dell Personal Computing Product Group. "The Vostro product family enables emerging businesses to grow and thrive in competitive environments. Our end-to-end solution is the reason why so many of our Vostro customers recommend the products to their friends, family and colleagues."

Performance and Design Built for Success
Designed for professionals in search of power, portability, and value, the new Vostro laptops offer three elegant sizes - 13-inch, 14-inch and 15-inch, and three colors - Aberdeen Silver, Brisbane Bronze and Lucerne Red. The laptops are available with options such as the latest Intel 3rd generation processors that enable professionals to breeze through their intensive day-to-day tasks, while extended battery life enables hours of mobile productivity. Comprehensive wireless connectivity and collaboration solutions such as an HD webcam and microphone, Waves MaxxVoice Pro, Bluetooth 4.0 and optional 4G LTE mobile broadband (Vostro 3360 & 3460) with Dell NetReady mobile broadband service allow customers to stay connected virtually anywhere, any time.

The 13-inch Vostro 3360 offers superb portability in a thin 0.76-inch design and mainstream performance for professionals constantly on the go. The 14 and 15-inch Vostro 3460 and 3560 laptops simplify content creation by delivering superior performance ready to handle the most demanding business needs. All three laptops, when configured with an optional 32 GB mSATA SSD card, support Intel Rapid Start and Smart Response technologies. Rapid Start delivers fast boot-up and hibernate response times, while Smart Response quickly recognizes and caches the most frequently used files and applications, allowing customers to access critical business information quickly and easily.

Security and Services
An increasingly mobile workforce has made it a requirement for growing businesses to depend on reliable, secure and simple to use technology with little or no maintenance. The Vostro line delivers dependable, worry-free business security and services allowing customers to concentrate on succeeding with their business without focusing on their IT.

Standard fingerprint readers, file and folder encryption via digitalPersona File Protection software, and Trend Micro security software ensure that critical data is securely protected, while Dell DataSafe Online Backup safeguards that valuable data via online back-up to a protected, remote storage site. Additionally, when customers select Dell's comprehensive ProSupport service, they will receive 24/7 access to experts well-versed in the needs of a growing business, and Dell's optional Accidental Damage Service adds an extra level of security by protecting the laptops from drops, spills, surges and other on-the-job accidents.

"Dell has been a tremendous partner and advocate for the young, high-growth companies we support," said Scott Case, CEO of the Startup America Partnership. "The startups we work with are laser-focused on growing their businesses and achieving their dreams, and they deserve the peace of mind from knowing that Dell is delivering quality products, security and services that fully address their IT needs."

The Vostro 3560 laptop is available now on Dell.com and from registered Dell channel partners starting at $599. The Vostro 3360 (starting at $649), and Vostro 3460 (starting at $599), will be available from June 21st on Dell.com.

Nice specs for a small business laptop. High res screens are usually reserved for the Latitude line. Yes i know they've done it before with models such as the Vostro 1500 with its optional 1680x1050 panel

I'm loving my Dell Vostro 3555 with AMD A8-3500m. I hope Dell will release another AMD laptop. 3565 perhaps?

Anyway, I'm glad that they'll offer a 1080p display on the 15.6". It's about time!
