Dell Vostro 200

 

The Vostro 200 is the first desktop PC in Dell's new small-business line of computers and peripherals. The machine's "200" designation might lead you to believe that it's a step above entry level, but from what we saw, it's more like a 100-level...

Small case ; SATA-connected optical drive

No tool-less components ; Optical drive catches on front panel

This entry-level small-business PC is inexpensive but offers no noteworthy features other than Dell's business services.

Dell Vostro 200

 

The Dell Vostro 200 is the first Dell desktop specifically tailored for small business.

No extra included software (aside from Google Desktop and Toolbar). Less expensive alternative to OptiPlex desktops. Intelligent port cover(s). Dual-core performance. Good expansion space. Small-business-oriented features, such as 10GB DataSafe online...

New model name may confuse new users. No included Internet security software.

The Dell's first small-business desktop is basically the business doppelganger of the Inspiron: similar case, specs, and configurations, but it is all business and comes with Vstore services that tailor it for the SMB space.

Dell Vostro 200 (Mini Tower)

 

In early July, Dell launched its Vostro line of desktops and notebooks. The Vostro 200 ($899 direct, E-Value Code OC brde2ph) is a business desktop for the smallish (1 to 30 employees) independent office that can't or won't staff a full-time IT person....

For small-business buyers with little or no access to IT help, the Vostro 200 is a terrific value. Just know that it isn't aimed at—and likely won't satisfy—home users.

Comprehensive support options

Unremarkable performance outside of basic office applications

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Dell Vostro 200

 

Through the revival of a long dead language, Dell has breathed a touch of new life into its small business product line with the launch of Vostro (tra...

Maintenance software, quiet operation, plentiful front accessible ports

Little to no upgrade potential (particularly storage)

In many respects the Vostro, though aimed at small businesses, is just another PC. However the layout, safety features and included maintenance tools and services make this a promising choice for businesses searching for a no-fuss solution.

Dell's Vostro range might start at an eye catchingly low price but those options do tend to make things mount up.

Graphics comes from a discrete ATI Radeon X1300 Pro graphics card, though again, basic machines come with an even lower-power Intel X3100 chip, integrated into the system board. The X1300 Pro is more than enough to handle Vista Aero and the system has...

The Dell Vostro 200 is the first desktop PC in Dell's new small-business line of computers and peripherals.

Dell will soon begin selling a step-up Vostro model that may sport a more sophisticated case. For now, however, Dell's OptiPlex line offers better hardware and much of the same services as the Dell Vostro 200, and PCs in that line don't cost much more....

I've always built from scratch but I'm starting to change my ways. I'd rather buy and start gaming instead of figuring out if components are compatible.
