Yesterday, 4 June, Dell launched the latest addition to their mobile computing line in the region, the Vostro 5460. This laptop, available in the Philippines in three configurations, is the thinnest and lightest 14-inch Vostro laptop to date, at 18.3-mm and 1.54kg (about 3 pounds). The ultra-thin Vostro delivers greater power and portability to enterprise users and the home user alike.

“Dell’s Vostro line of laptops has always focused on delivering computing performance in a portable package, and today we are proud to bring that promise a step further,” said Christopher S. Papa, country manager, Dell Philippines. “The thin and ultra lightweight Dell Vostro 5460 offers users a much sought-after level of mobility, performance and support together with business-friendly features to enhance everyday productivity.”

The Vostro 5460 sports a 14-inch HD widescreen LED TrueLife 1366×768 display, internal stereo speakers with WaveMaxxAudio 4.0 technology to produce astounding sound clarity in such a thin and light package. The Dell engineers have put a lot of work into the 5460 and have managed to fit a 14-inch ultrabook in a body that is in-line with Intel’s 13-inch Ultrabook size specifications.

With third generation Intel Core i3 and i5 processors and integrated HD4000 graphics at its core, users can opt for either the standard or Ultrabook configurations of the Vostro 5460. The 500GB HDD allows for plenty of documents and multimedia files to be stored and accessed on the go; and the 32GB SSD in the Ultrabook configuration delivers speedier performance and added storage.

The Vostro 5460 has a 3-cell battery that is able to offer up to 5 hours of use, dual fans for efficient heat dissipation and i light enough to toss in a bag and forget.

The Vostro 5460 even comes with a configuration that includes a discrete Nvidia GT630M video card and 2GB of VRAM, for heavy graphics and gaming on the move.
