New Dell Vostro 260 and 260s: Reliable, Easy-to-Use Desktop Solutions that Offer a Perfect Fit for Small Businesses

The
Dell Vostro desktop
family is growing again!  Following the
January debut of the Vostro 460, and All-in–One in
March we are expanding our desktop solutions for small business by adding
another solid performer to our line.

The
Dell Vostro 260 and 260s desktop are designed for the small business seeking a
system that can operate right out of the box. 
We made the system easy to set up so customers can focus on their
business; both Vostros are packaged with the right essential features to cover a
company’s processing, security and IT needs.

Customers
can power through daily tasks and enjoy seamless multi-tasking with second generation Intel Core processors, expect even faster performance
with Core i5 processors which has built-inTurbo Boost 2.0 Technology .  This horsepower doesn’t
come at the expense of a lean silhouette, however. The Vostro 260s slim tower
option has a 42% slimmer profile than the mini-tower, allowing customers to
work hard even when space is at a premium.

The
around-the-clock demands of operating a small business require security
protection that never sleeps.  Since your
data is the most valuable business asset, the Vostro 260 desktops are
configured with preinstalled Backup and Recovery Manager to make routine system
backups a breeze.  Additionally,
customers can choose Dell DataSafe Online Backup for a full-service, 24/7
backup and recovery solution that doesn’t require extra hardware or IT staff.

Dell
believes that small business owners shouldn’t be burdened by IT issues.  With a suite of specialized support options
included in every Vostro desktop, customers can rest assured that they are
backed by the resources to keep their businesses running smoothly.  Dell ProSupport delivers “how-to” help on
topics ranging from virtualization to systems management, while the Dell
Support Center application serves as a one-stop destination for keeping the system
in top shape.

Other
perfect-fit features include:

  • Integrated
    Intel HD graphics for dynamic presentations, with
    available 1GB NVIDIA or AMD discrete graphics upgrades
  • VGA,
    a native HDMI port, 8 easily accessible USB ports, and a multi-media card
    reader for plug-and-play connectivity
  • Preinstalled
    Roxio Creater Starter software for encrypting data onto a password-protected
    CD, DVD or Blu-ray disc
  • Free,
    preinstalled Trend Micro Worry-Free Business
    Security Services for protection against virus threats
  • Limited
    Hardware Warranty that can be extended up to 3 years
  • Accidental
    Damage Service add-on for protection against power surges, liquid spills, and
    other hazards

Starting
at just $429 the Vostro 260 and Vostro 260s is a cost-effective and dependable desktop
solution that will go the distance. It will be available in the US in June.

Dell
also announced the availability of the OptiPlex 390, the newest member of
OptiPlex business desktop PC family complementing the OptiPlex 990 and
790.  The 390 features minitower,
desktop, small form-factor chassis with an optional all-in-one stand.  The system offers essential productivity for
organizations that need affordable in-band management with 20 month product
life-cycle management and stability, including newly added Global Standard
Platforms in this product class. In addition to supporting next-generation
Intel processors, the 390 offers a minimum of 10 percent post-consumed recycled
