Dell Vostro 470


Business systems are often defined not just by how quickly they complete their assigned tasks, but how quickly the systems themselves get to market. For that reason, the Dell Vostro 470 deserves some significant plaudits: This is one of the first...

Up-to-date hardware. Strong performance across applications. Fairly expandable

Default warranty covers only one year

The Dell Vostro 470 delivers fine performance and a robust-enough feature set to be your go-to sub-$1,000 business PC of choice.

Dell Vostro 470


It may look like a basic-black tower desktop, but not all basic-black PCs are created equal. For small businesses buying PCs they'll need to rely upon every day, sometimes the services and policies behind the hardware matter just as much as the box...

Competitive application performance ; Basic black design will not offend ; Toolless chassis

Standard warranty lasts only one year ; Bundled keyboard and mouse are subpar

A simple and functional design, strong performance, and useful support options make the Dell Vostro 470 a good fit for small businesses.

Ordered the refurb'd Dell 745. Machine looks brand new, it came with everything promised. nice to get a computer with the latest version of software on it Win7 pro for this price. I've always had good luck with Dell's, so let's hope it continues!

Absolutely tremendous, considering Windows 7 Pro is included! Just turn it on, and you're ready to go! My wife needed a new desktop when our old unit finally failed after many good years of service. I made it from scratch, using the finest parts -- but...

Sons college PC quit working, so I needed to get him a new system quickly (without spending a lot). The PC fit the bill, arrived in perfect order, with very fast shipping. He is back in business in about a week. Would definitely order again in the future.
