Package and Accessories
The packaging of the Vostro series has changed somewhat since Dell’s earlier models, but has not become any more attractive. It is still an ordinary neat cardboard box.
It’s all very simple on the inside, too. You won’t find a bag to carry the notebook in or a heap of accessories in there. Besides the notebook, the box contains the following: a 6-cell 5000mAh battery with a charge level indicator, a power adapter with an indicator, a modem cable (RJ-11), an additional adapter for a phone cable, documentation, and a set of discs. The discs are:
- Disc with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic preinstalled on the notebook (the more expensive version of Vostro 1400 come with Vista Business)
- Drivers and Utilities DVD for the Dell Vostro 1400 series
- Drivers and Utilities disc to install Dell Webcam Manager
- Roxio Creator & MyDVD 9.0 DE
- Application disc to install Dell MediaDirect 3.3 on Dell Vostro 1400 notebooks
