Dell has launched its first desktop targeted at the small business user which employs Intel’s new second-generation Core processors, also known as Sandy Bridge.
Sandy Bridge offers integrated graphics with some “oomph” built into the processor, along with technology for faster video conversion and other goodies. However, Vostro 460 buyers get a discrete graphics card with their system anyway, oddly enough.
The range starts at £399 (without VAT or shipping), which gets you an Intel Core i5-2400 running at 3.1GHz, 2GB of memory, a 320GB hard drive, and an Nvidia GeForce GT 420 graphics card.
The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium, and the system also comes with a 21.5 inch Dell monitor. The memory, however, is a weak spot at only 2GB, although should you wish, you can customise and whack the it up to 16GB (and indeed the hard drive up to 1.5TB).
Dell boasts of the machine: “Complete your most challenging tasks in no time and be prepared for future needs with the Dell Vostro 460. This mini tower is packed with power and leading-edge technology to handle your biggest workload.”
You can order one now at the Dell website.
