Dell has kept the glossy screen on these notebooks, but you can also configure them with a regular matte screen. Windows XP will apparently only be offered on the Vostro 1000 and Vostro 1500, you can also configure a cheap Celeron processor on those notebooks.

The Inspiron line of desktops will also be branded as Vostro and available through Dell Biz. The Dell Latitude line of notebooks will remain as the premier offering through the Dell business channel, it’s assumed these Vostro notebooks will be cheaper than the Latitudes and targeted more at Small Business buyers.
