Dell has launched a new range of PCs and notebooks for the Small Business market and the Vostro range looks to be quite a decent option for those looking for simple, but serious business machines. The desktop systems starts at US$319 for the mini tower version and the slim tower starts at $349.
Both of the desktop systems are based on the Intel G33 chipset. The basic model comes with a Celeron 420 and 512MB of RAM for either model, as well as an 80GB hard drive and a 16x DVD-ROM. You can of course as always configure your own system and Dell offers a wide range of options up to an E6700 processor and various graphics options.
The Vostro notebook range is available in four different models, the 1000, the 1400, the 1500 and the 1700. The 1000 is as the name suggests the most basic model and it comes with an AMD Sempron processor and the ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 chipset as well as 512MB of RAM and a 60GB hard drive. Options with AMD Turion 64 X2 processors are also available. The 15.4-inch screen has a native resolution of 1,280x800 and this model starts at $449.
The remaining three models features an Intel processor and the 1400 and 1500 comes with a Celeron 540M as standard, while the 1700 comes with a Core 2 Duo T5470 (yeah, we don't know exactly what one of those are either, but it's clocked at 1.6GHz, has 2MB of cache and an 800MHz FSB). The 1400 and 1500 starts with 512MB of memory and an 80GB drive, while the 1700 comes with 1GB and 120GB.
The 1400 and 1500 starts at 1,280x800 resolution, but higher resolution options are available. The 1700 starts at 1,440x900, but again, higher resolution options are available. The 1400 starts at $549, the 1500 also starts at $549and the 1700 at $799. All three models are available with optional discrete graphics as well.
