Capping off Dell's spate of laptop updates, today the company also announced an updated Vostro 13 laptop for small business. The relatively inexpensive Vostro 13 5391-series feature a solid build quality along with numerous enhancements that will be appreciated by business users, road warriors, and even consumers. The new machines pack Intel’s 10th Gen Core processors and a discrete GPU into a thin and light package.

The Dell Vostro 13 5391 comes in an aluminum and plastic chassis that is 14.9 mm thick, with total system weights starting from 1.18 kilograms, which is comparable to modern high-end notebooks such as Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1. According to Dell, the chassis is tested using 50 kinds of reliability, shock, and vibration programs to ensure its robust build quality. Furthermore, Dell will offer optional accidental damage and ProSupport services with this laptop. By default, the Vostro 13 5391 is equipped with a spill-resistant keyboard, whereas premium SKUs will come with a backlit spill resistant keyboard.

The Vostro 13 5391 is based on Intel’s 10th Generation Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs (Comet Lake), and are joined by NVIDIA’s GeForce MX 250 GPU with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM, 4 or 8 GB of system DRAM, as well as an M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD with up to 1 TB capacity. The platform is enhanced with a hardware TPM 2.0 module, which will be appreciated by those concerned with security.

When it comes to display, the mobile PC is equipped with a non-touch 13.3-inch Full-HD monitor with Dell’s TrueLife LED backlighting and wide viewing angles.

Meanwhile for connectivity, the Vostro 13 5391 includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi, one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port with DisplayPort, one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A, one HDMI 1.4 port, a microSD card reader, a 3.5-mm connector for headsets, and a power plug. On the multimedia side of things the notebook has a Windows Hello-capable IR-enabled webcam, stereo speakers co-designed with Waves MaxxAudio, a microphone array, a Windows Hello-supporting fingerprint reader, and other things.

The manufacturer does not make claims regarding battery life of the Vostro 13 5391, but it says that various SKUs will come with a 46 Wh or a 52 Wh battery.

Dell will start sales of the Vostro 13 5391 this week with prices starting at $849.

    Please be more clear on what 10th gen CPU it's actually using, as you yourselves have complained about in Intel's marketing.

    ...the spec sheet says exactly which?

    it's Comet Lake.
  • ajp_anton - Wednesday, August 21, 2019 - link

    Yes, so obviously it's known to the writer. So why skip it in both the title and the text?

    We have a phrase where I come from which applies nicely to Intel product nomenclature.

    "Clear as muck".

    Muck being manure... or horse shit as it's otherwise known.

    there hasnt been a 1028 laptop product in at least a decade, maybe an early netbook or something was 900x600?
  • patel21 - Wednesday, August 21, 2019 - link

    c'mon man, you know he meant 1366x768
  • Cliff34 - Thursday, August 22, 2019 - link

    Soldered 4-8GB of RAM! I'm going to have to be strapped down because I'm so excited about the generous allotment of upgrade incapable memory Dell is offering in their systems these days. I mean really, my crappy old Latitude e4310 with its 1st gen i5 shipped with 4GB in 2011 and currently has 8GB.
