Dell Vostro 410 launches
Dell today announced it will soon be updating its Vostro 400 desktop PCs with the 410 model, adding to its line of PCs made for small businesses. The PC's tower has also been enlarged to allow it to hold twice as many drives as in the Vostro 400, as well as more expansion slots and bays. Newly introduced is a Gigabit Ethernet card for faster network access. Due to customer feedback from its site, Dell claims it brought out the new PC six months earlier than originally planned and with different specs that include a choice of Intel Core 2 Quad processors, 512MB graphics cards and 800MHz memory.
Dell simultaneously chose to announce worldwide availability for its first EPEAT Gold-certified monitor, the 20-inch E207 alongside the 410. The monitor earned EPEAT's highest recognition for its environmental impact, as at least 25 percent of the plastic used in the monitor is recycled, and the widescreen sports a 1680x1050 (WSXGA+) resolution as well as and HDCP-ready DVI port.
The Vostro 410 will start at $599 when it launches on Thursday in the Americas and the UK. Asia will get the 410 on June 2, with a Europe-wide, Middle East and Africa launch on June 5. The E207 monitor starts at $259 and is available now.
