Today, Dell announced the new Vostro V13 small business laptop designed for entrepreneurs on the go. The slim notebook computer (pictured below), which I checked out this afternoon, weighs just 3.5 pounds and is encased in brushed aluminum with reinforced zinc hinges. It has a 13.3 inch LED-backlit anti-glare screen, and a spill-resistant keyboard that lets you drain errant liquid. Business-friendly features include an integrated webcam and microphone for Internet calls and a VGA port for connecting to a projector or docking station.

Price: The base model, which costs $449, comes with 2 GB of memory, an Intel Celeron 743 processor, and a Linux operating system by Ubuntu. For $649, you'll get 2 GB of memory, Windows 7, and an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
