Dell is extending Ivy Bridge to its less expensive Vostro line, but it'll cost you. The new Vostro 3360, Vostro 3460, and Vostro 3560 can be upgraded to include Ivy Bridge i5 and i7 processors, but all still contain Sandy Bridge chips in their base configurations. All three laptops start with a 320GB hard drive, 4GB of RAM, and Intel HD Graphics 3000. The upgrade options include up to 8GB of RAM to 750GB of hard drive space in the 3460 and 3560 models, and the 13.3-inch Vostro 3360 and the 14-inch Vostro 3460 will have the option of 4G LTE support on Dell's NetReady mobile broadband service. The 15.6-inch Vostro 3560 is available now starting at $599, and the Vostro 3360 and 3460 will be available on June 21st for $649 and $599 respectively.
