Dell Vostro 410


The base model Vostro 410 (which starts at a $599) is a very basic system with 1GB of memory, dual-core processor, 80GB hard drive, Windows XP Home, and relatively anemic ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro discrete graphics card. The "extreme performance" model I...

Minimal bloatware. Lots of expansion space. Quad-core performance. High-powered 3D. 15-month Internet Security subscription. Windows XP, or XP plus Vista discs to upgrade, are options

One-year warranty. A little pricey. Could be more energy efficient. Included online storage is only one year

The Dell Vostro 410 is a powerful PC for small businesses. A single business user will be happy with the high-end performance, added features, and no bloatware.

Dell Vostro 410


There's no doubt that Dell's Vostro line-up of PCs is good-looking. The 410, in particular, is black and svelte, with glossy trim and concealed ports....

Standard ATX case, quad-core CPU, four USB ports on the front, looks stylish

Could use more PCI Express slots, runs 667MHz RAM instead of 800MHz, doesn't have eSATA, USB ports are not flush with the front panel and could be awkward to use if the unit is placed at floor level

This PC is worthy of consideration if you want something zippy and good-looking, not to mention easy to maintain and upgrade, for the office.

Dell claims its Vostro 410 is an energy efficient, high performance PC for small businesses. While Dell's efficiency claims seem to be hot air, the 410 is a sleek, zippy and good value PC.

Strong performance, Good value for money, Plenty of space for upgrades, If black is your colour, you'll like the design, Lots of USB ports

Wireless Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, Pre-installed Google Toolbar and Desktop, Energy efficiency savings is all spin

The Vostro 410 scores highly on upgrade potential, performance and value, it's just a pity the energy efficiency is all spin.

Nice System at a Nice Price


As an IT professional, this computer is the best tool I have... The price was decent, the power is incredible, and performance is amazing! You will not be dissapointed!

This system has a nice balance of features and price. Q6600, 250GB HD, both Vista and XP, DVD R/W, ATI 3450 and Gigabit NIC. System supports more than 4GB RAM and has 6 SATA ports some with RAID support.

No Spdif header on the Motherboard.

it's a beast


great computer. Just need to see how it holds up over time. Hard drives are definitely the bottle neck - don't get a faster processor. Bought with quad core q6600, 3GB ram, ATI 3450 HD video card (Diamond(tm) card, which registers as 512MB ram, not...

extremely powerful

None really...

A great buy for those looking forward


This unit was replacing a failed PC, so the lack of an IDE port was definitely painful, and it lost 1 star overall for that. The lack of a floppy drive is annoying (for me) but not too bad. If you don't need the IDE or the floppy, buy with confidence!

This has turned out to be a very fast PC with plenty of headroom for the future. When I purchased, XP Pro was included (Yay!), as was a free upgrade to a Q6600 CPU. It arrived in perfect shape despite a crushed corner courtesy of FedEx, and booted up...

With the ammount of expansion bays available (3 CD-ROM drives??), I find it somewhat disappointing that I had to chose between a floppy or a memory card reader. There are certainly enough 3.5" bays available, but only 1 that is externally available....

Very disappointing


As a long time normally satisfied Dell customer I am very disappointed in my experience with this system. I ordered the Vostro 410 with XP, Core Duo, 3 GB of ram and from the moment I set it up I had problems. MS Office, first 2007, then (after...

Vostro 410


I've purchased 2 of these machines for work, and 1 for home office.

Best quad-core machine for the money. Great performance for a great value. WinXP pre-installed saved a lot of time (since Vista still isn't a good option).

WinXP downgrade won't be offered forever...

Best PC I have ever purchased


Cannot comment on Dell Support, because I haven't needed any !

What is there to say ?

Wish there were visible activity led's for the Optical drives. A trivial matter

Excellent Machine
