Dell updates Vostro desktop lineup with Intel’s Sandy Bridge platform
If the grass is always greener on the other side, then it should also be common knowledge that the bridge is always sandier on the other side as well, especially where Intel’s processors are concerned. And thanks to Dell, business users now have the option to ‘upgrade’ their bridges with more sand, courtesy of the company’s new Vostro 460 business desktop tower, which has been given the Sandy Bridge treatment.
While most OEMs would probably opt to fit their consumer-oriented products with Intel’s latest platform to capture more sales from the tech-savvy crowd, it appears that Dell has got slightly different plans in store. Instead of appealing to the hardware enthusiast, the company has opted to give its business desktops first dibs on Sandy Bridge, with the new Vostro 460 being what Dell touts as the first ever Sandy Bridge business desktop tower to hit the market and is now available for sale locally.
Lastly, Dell also offers users the option of bundling the Vostro 460 with a graphics card for better video and graphics performance in the event the built-in Intel HD Graphics 2000 are simply not up to par with consumer needs.
But that’s not all. Apparently, Dell has taken to heart the old saying of “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” by announcing that customers will have the choice to include an internal Blu-ray optical disk drive. Apparently, this option was added in to ensure that workers can let loose after a long and hard day at work by watching Blu-ray movies and playing games on their Vostro. And no, we are not making this up.
