The last time we looked at this deal, the Vostro 230 was being paired with a 24-inch monitor and the bundle was selling for $419. This time around, we’ve lost two inches on the monitor, but we’ve also lost $20 on the overall bundle price. Coming in at just under $400 after a $291 rebate, the Vostro 230 will fit right into your business without breaking the bank. For this sum, you get a 3Ghz dual-core processor and “3GB DDR3 1333MHz memory, 250GB Hard 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.”
There aren’t a ton of reviews of this machine on the Internet, but that’s because the Vostro is a business line and this means little by way of excitement. No fancy graphics cards, liquid cooling or jet-fighter aesthetics. Like we mentioned last time, what you do get is great value and dependability.
