    I've heard the comment "cheap plastic case" used, if you want a top end processor Dell will soak you up to $600 over starting price just for it, there not too many other choices either

      They are small and portable and therefore not very powerfull. Certainly they have onboard video (yuk) and they do not have an express card slot which is a must imo for external video drives.

      But one good thing is there's an option for solid state hard drive- costs though.

        Vostros are supposed to be "cheaper business laptops".

        There was a 30% off coupon for, but it expired...Wish you guys asked for a laptop a few days ago.

          Jim, I think if you call and talk to them they will substitute XP if it comes to selling one or not selling one. I know I did this but it has been a while ago.
