When it comes to computing, small businesses have a wide range of needs. The new Dell Vostro 5000 line of laptops have been designed to address these many different needs while taking into consideration the budget of said small businesses.

The new Vostro 5000 is available in a 15” (5581) or 14” (5481) variants with seven configurations all between $599 to $949 (prices may change with different promotions). And these configurations come with the latest 8th generation Intel processors along with multiple storage options including SSD, memory and more.

For small businesses [1], these configurations offer options which address the functionality and budgetary constraints of small companies. This includes mobile computing which is more important than ever as the workplace can be anywhere these days.

On the company blog, Erik Day wrote what the company had in mind when creating the new Vostro line, as well as the unique needs of small businesses.

Day said [2], “Dell recognizes that small businesses have unique needs when it comes to their technology. With businesses recognizing that technology is no longer just PART of their strategy but central to their business model, those businesses have begun to identify exactly which PC features will lend to their most success while being mindful of a price point that is feasible for their budgets.”

The Vostro line is a workhorse designed for functionality and it is not a dainty one-pound machine. This doesn’t mean they don’t look nice, it just means the 4.19- and 3.42-pound machines will give you the strong build and reliability you will need for everyday use without having to worry about it breaking easily.
