The small business community has spoken, and we've listened. Less than a year after the launch of our Vostro line of laptops and desktops, we have made several enhancements based on customer feedback we received. IdeaStorm member liraco suggested that we add a 7200 RPM hard drive option to the Vostro 1500 about a month after the launch. And, back in October of last year, ojisan recommended that we make a more compact Vostro laptop. As of today we are offering a 13.3" Vostro laptop that weighs 20 percent less than the Vostro 1400 and the option to have a 7200 RPM hard drive in the lighter, redesigned 1510. Click here to read more about the lineup on the new SMB blog and keep up the great ideas!

Austin E said:Does this mean that the 1400 has been discontinued? If it does I will be upset, it was a good deal, on a great laptop. It was such a great deal, that I canceled an order on 2 Dell vostro 1500's last week so I could order 1400's instead, and now the price of the 1500 has slightly increased (by $19, granted, it does come with a better graphics card than before, but I don't need that, and I think that the majority of people in the market for a budget laptop don't either). If the price of the 1500 were to decrease I don't think people would be complaining, but the fact is that the 1400 was a light laptop that promised good performance, for a price that wasn't going to break the bank.
