Dell Vostro Leak

Dell plans one of the greatest changes to its notebooks to date when it completes the switchover to Intel's Santa Rosa platform, the company has inadvertently revealed today through a series of official documents. While details remain elusive, the company will introduce a third notebook range. The 15-inch Vostro 1500 and 17-inch Vostro 1700 (PDF) will each be far sleeker than current Inspiron designs, with a subtler row of media keys for playing DVDs and music without starting Windows. Both will ship with 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo processors and either 80GB (for the 1500) or 120GB (1700) of hard disk space.

The Inspiron will also receive its share of upgrades. The Inspiron 1520 and Inspiron 1720 (PDF) will share the same storage and Intel CPU options as the Vostro models, but are known through other sources to also have the choice of a 256MB GeForce 8600M GT for dedicated graphics. The entry-level Inspiron 1521 and Inspiron 1721 will reduce prices by using Turion 64 X2 chips and AMD's X1270 integrated video.

All but one of the systems will launch on June 26th, which may also represent the launch of the XPS M1330. The Vostro 1700 should stand as the lone exception, arriving a few weeks later on July 12th. [via Notebook Italia]
