Hey now, here’s something you don’t see every day. It’s a true 16:9 display in a business notebook for way, way cheap.
Dell’s Vostro A860 line starts at under $400 (that’s after instant savings – it’s normally $448) and features a 15.6-inch display with a 1366 x 768 resolution. The notebook weighs in at 5.4 pounds, too, which isn’t bad for a unit of this size.
There are four models available, running from $379 to $664 after instant savings ($448 to $930 regularly). The specs are pretty much what you’d expect from lower-end business notebooks: integrated graphics, 1GB to 2GB of RAM, 120GB to 250GB hard drive, one-year warranty, and stuff like that. Still, the 16:9 display will be great for… um… watching movies at work, I guess.
