Dell™ Vostro™ A840 and A860 laptops


Dell has announced the two new laptops joining its Vostro series, the A860 and A840. Dedicated to helping your business succeed, Dell is leading the way in designing solutions to meet your needs at every stage of growth. Dell's latest Vostro models deliver affordable solutions to address basic computing tasks on any budget. With two new laptops to choose from, you will be ready for business with features optimized for everyday office computing.


The Vostro A860 is mainly meant for business tasks. It is Dell’s first 15.6-inch notebook and uses a 16:9 aspect ratio display. The key features of Vostro A860 includes an HD widescreen LCD with anti-glare coating, integrated network modem and wireless connectivity with optional Bluetooth capability.

The Vostro A840, on the other hand, is smaller in size as compared to Vostro A860. The 14.1 inch A840 has WXGA display. It also incorporates HD widescreen LCD with anti-glare coating and offers reliability with mobile business computing.

Both of these have almost same internal specifications. Both laptops have 1GB of RAM, 160GB or 120GB hard disks, CD/DVD burners, Wi-Fi and optional Bluetooth. Processors range from Celeron to Core 2 Duo, and the OS option is Vista or Ubuntu. The best feature is that both of these can be customized to choose preferred processors and operating systems.

Other than those features, the Vostro A860 and A840 are pretty much your standard laptops. The Vostro A840 is supposed to come out anytime this week while the Vostro A860 will be out sometime in September. Pricing for these two laptops vary depending on their pre-configurations.
