responding to customer objections
Responding to Customer Objections
  • Q: Why is HDMI not offered on the 3300?
  • A: HDMI was left out in order to achieve the thinner form factor on the 13”. Based on customer feedback, mobility and certain features (such as optical drive) were preferred in this form factor. Customers who have a need for a HDMI port can consider the 14” as an alternative.
  • Q: Why should I purchase an additional battery kit?
  • A: With an optional battery kit, you can get a full-day of work anywhere. When you add on a backlit keyboard, you can continue to work in the dark or on the plane with no interruption.
  • Q: Is the 3300 an upgrade from the V13? Why should I choose 3300 over the V13?
  • A: Though both the 3300 and V13 are designed for mobility, each offers different performance and usage experience. While the V13 is based on a CULV processor delivering basic productivity and internet experience, the 3300 is powered by Intel’s Core i technology for business users who need mainstream performance for multi-tasking and higher productivity.
  • Q: Why do I need DataSafe Online Backup Service?
  • A: Data loss is a very serious threat for small businesses, and they need an affordable protection solution that is simple touseand hassle-free.Dell’s DataSafe Online Backup Service is a secure offsite backup service which provides total value to your business by offering protection from data corruption, accidental deletion, hard drive crashes, theft and even serves as a business disaster recovery plan.

Vostro Built for Small Business

Vostro 3300, 3500, 3700

Target on general users, Vostro 3000 series is designed for stylish, sophisticated and successful small business professionals. Vostro 3000 series offers an affordable premium design to make SB general users look great. It offers three form factors, which are optimized performance, sleek design and reliability. Users don’t have to comprise performance to get a sleek laptop. It’s also configurable to meet users’ special needs

Vostro 1014, 1088, 1015

Referred to as “Mainstream” internally, these four products are designed with almost identical feature sets and differentiated largely by screen size. The key product features solve small business needs: affordable price, security, data safety, latest technology and connectivity. The industrial design with new color palette is appealing, and the services portfolio is compelling. The Vostro 1220 is further differentiated within Vostro with low 2kg weight and more personalization options – both color and in IMR patterns.

Designed for value budget customers positioned as entry level. Vostro 10xx Series is sold in fixed configurations with basic technologies, low scalability, no security, and limited services up-sells. Depending on the region, the positioning ranges from “affordable desktop replacement” to “affordable and easy to build”. We need to tweak the current positioning, because we recommend introducing “affordable” in the new Vostro mainstream positioning.

Vostro V13

Target on SMB Frequent Travelers (specialized users) and positioned as Thin & Light with Premium ID. Vostro V13 is ideal for customers who want a stylish system with an extremely thin and light form factor to stand apart from the rest. V13 provides enough performance for Office computing showing improved performance from Netbook category while providing a very portable system. User on-the-go will appreciate V13 connectivity with its wireless networks and mobile broadband selections.
