Dell unveils 'green' small business PC

Now monitor also carries green flag

PC giant Dell has announced the Energy Smart Vostro 410 desktop, a computer designed exclusively for small businesses which the company claims can save customers up to 47 percent in annual energy costs.

The Vostro 410 starts at $A1399, including Intel's Core2 Quad processors and a 20" widescreen LCD monitor.

The new PC will be available in early June.

Dell's small and medium business general manager for Australia and New Zealand Kevin O'Kane said small businesses are increasingly concerned about rising energy costs.

"With the Energy Smart Vostro desktop, we're able to save our customers money and collectively cut down on CO2 emissions, while delivering the features and functionality they require," O'Kane.

Dell claims direct customer feedback influenced the 410's design with features like a larger "tower" design to allow up to four hard drives versus two in the Vostro 400 and up to 3TB of local storage and memory; six expansion slots instead of four, four bays instead of three, Gigabit Ethernet.

The Vostro 410 is also available with no trial-ware and free services including 10GB of Dell DataSafe online backup.

"The changes we've made to the Vostro 410 aren't moderate improvements but an unrivalled combination of performance and expandability for a small-business PC," said O'Kane.

Dell has also announced worldwide availability of its first EPEAT Gold-certified display - the E207 20-inch widescreen LCD monitor.

According to Dell, more than 25 percent of its plastics are made from recycled materials, in addition to flat panel monitors saving up to 28 percent in annual energy costs compared with CRT monitors. The E207 display starts at $259.

Dell invites customers to share feedback on its new small business blog.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
