Dell Intros SMB-Friendly Gear

Ann All

Apparently small businesses will play a big part in the so-called Dell 2.0, the PC manufacturer's sweeping effort to reverse its recent poor fortunes.


It just launched a line of laptops, desktops, printers and other gear designed to appeal to companies with 25 or fewer employees, reports


Called Vostro (Latin for "yours"), the line features not only low price points -- laptops starting at $449, desktops at $319, laser printers at $299 and monitors at $229 -- but also support services to help SMBs get their gear up and running faster than comparable products. CEO Michael Dell says that Vostro devices can be connected to a network in just six steps.


Other SMB-friendly perks, reports BusinessWeek: free online storage of up to 10 gigs, a year of free data backup, a 30-day money back guarantee, management features such as an automated PC tuneup for defragmenting the hard disk, and the omission of pre-installed software samplings that some call "trialware" (or "crapware" for the less charitable among us).
