Dell Announces Vostro All-in-One Desktop PC

All-in-one desktop PCs have been a popular choice for mainstream consumers, and now Dell believes that there's a large desire for those types of machines in the business space.

Dell today announced an all-in-one PC that will fit into its Vostro line, which is designed for the business customer.

According to Dell's global survey, four out of five small business owners see technology as a way of helping employees to clean up their desktops and improve productivity.

“Small businesses are waking up to the fact that saving space is a critical requirement for their desktops and the Vostro All In One is the first-of-its-kind solution for small businesses wanting a cleaner, more productive workspace at an amazing value,” said Sam Burd, global vice president, Dell Small and Medium Business. “This is a perfect example of how Dell is expanding the Vostro line to bring customers innovative design and productivity based on their unique needs and business environments.”

Regardless of what you may make of that statement, Dell addresses the space saving part of the equation with the new Vostro optional VESA mount, which will save customers as much as 79 percent of their desk space versus a traditional desktop and monitor set-up. When combined with optional integrated Wi-Fi and a wireless mouse and keyboard, the result is a wire-free desk.

Those who can't wait to get up and running will be able to set it up "from box to business" in less than four minutes.

Starting at $629, the Vostro All In One is available today in China and Japan, July 27 in South Asia, Australia and New Zealand and India Aug. 3. Customers in North America and Europe, Middle East and Africa will be able to order the product starting August 11 and August 23, respectively.

    gaysignuprequirementsDang that looks ugly. I think we just took a step backwards in pc style.A step backwards would be CRT monitors sitting on top of beige boxes IMHO. For a business PC, I see no problem with the Dell pictured.

    Price is right. Dell products to me mostly junk or mac want to be. Customer support is a joke. I will never by a dell again.

    This website is old and dead. But its concepts with the VESA mount is years old, long before the AIO craze has started.

    Some years ago, I chatted with one of the guys who was trying to get this out to market. He had tried get Dell interested in it.

    That DiscPC thing is *horrible* looking. Its also not a very good design in terms of scalability. Sure the disc thing might work for a 15" display but scale that up to the 20" displays that are rapidly becoming the norm for desktop use and you'd have a ridiculously large amount of wasted space around the rectangular display due to the top and bottom curved bits. Its also incredibly thick, even by 2001 standards.

    I don't think its bad looking, and the price isn't bad either, this would be great for my computer lab at school, we currently have vostro slim cases and 19" wide screen and those take up plenty of space. If this thing came in at 17 or 19 inch would save me gobs of space, I can't even get speakers for all the computers cause of limited space. I'm sure dell will give discounts to schools as they did for our other pc's.
