On the DotD column, we talk a lot about laptops. Second most popular seem to be monitors but it’s fairly rare that we pay attention to desktop systems. You know… “towers”? Yeah, people still use them and it’s nice to see a 41% price drop on the Dell Vostro 230 system. This one comes paired with a 23.6-inch Samsung 2494LW LCD Monitor and usually costs $742. But today $313 of that price melts and leaves you with “$429 + $8 shipping or FREE shipping when customized over $499.” For less than $500, you get:
A 2.8GHz Dual-core CPU, 3GB DDR3 1333MHz memory, 320GB Hard Drive, DVD+/-RW Optical Drive, GMA X4500 graphics, Microsoft Office Starter 2010, Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit OS, Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services 15-months subscription and bundled Keyboard + Mouse.
