AMD helps Dell consolidate #1 spot as PC vendor

Dell’s latest launch of AMD entry level desktop processors should give the computer giant, the kind of boost that it desperately needs after the recent stormy months.

Dell is still more expensive than HP for some deals (HP’s RC029ES costs only £237, £57 cheaper than a similarly configured Dell Dimension 3100) but it has managed to keenly price its AMD desktops.

For example the Dimension C521 costs only £279 and includes 512MB memory, 1 year collect and return service, Windows XP Pro and most importantly a 15-inch TFT screen, a £100 discount compared to a similar Intel configuration (Dimension 3100c)

Obviously Dell has sweetened the deal in their strategy to get more of its corporate customer to bite the bullet and go AMD’s way.

The bottom line is that Dell is back in a big way thanks to AMD. Now has never been a better time to upgrade or replace your office’s workstations. All prices do not include VAT and Shipping.
