Ridiculous pricing differences. Horrendously unfair.

So if I switch from push to pull on my radiator fans I get to call it "Hyperbaric Electromechanically-assisted Thermal Convection Cooling" or somesuch?

Hyperbaric? More like Hyperbolic.

The thing uses CULV C2D and i3 CPUs anyway, how much cooling could it need?

V13 = SU3500 or SU7300 CULV C2D, 2-4GB RAM, Intel GMA 4500MHD

V130 = i3 or i5 CULV, option for a Celeron as well. 2-4GB RAM, whatever graphics the HM57 chipset has

I considered buying the V13 for a while because of the matte display option and the portability, but the price was a tad high.

Ever feel like your laptop just isn't as special as it used to be?

Just do the opposite of Intel and brag about your Hypobaric Cooling Technology!

The base model V130 has worse specs than the base model V13. You get what you pay for for $429.. Ubuntu Linux, a 1GHz Celeron, a small 5400RPM hard drive, 2GB RAM..

You've also left out the major part of the refresh, the addition of i3 and i5 CPU options.

Dell Vostro V13 (entry price) 580euro (Germany) 499$(US)
Dell Vostro V130 (entry price)* 480euro (Germany) 429$(US)

Even if there are no taxes on the US ones, +20% still only brings them to the same level, but Dollars for Euro's
Yeah, thanks.

*(lower specs)

Great slip-up with that article... Kinda bad for Dell, considering how many people read this site - it's not even their fault their products are getting criticized!

This is absolutely riduculous!!!! I operate hyperbaric chambers for a living and I got all interested when I heard about this... but it's bullshit!! Oh well, I bet they'll sell a ****-ton of these ****ers cause it sounds cool. Not to mention, I'm sure as soon as my boss hears about this he'll probably buy at least 3 of 'em!!!
