Dell Refreshes Vostro Range With New 460 Series

Dell has announced the launched of a new small business desktop computer range in the shape of the Vostro 460 which brings in the new Sandy Bridge processor and comes with a starting price of £399 excluding VAT and delivery.

The range, which can be found here (opens in new tab), can sypport up to 3TB storage capacity and 16GB onboard DDR3 memory (four 4GB memory banks).

The Series 460 is an evolution of the Series 430; they use the same casing, have the same power supply unit and come by default with a quad core processor as well.

While the 430 lives off a Core i5-750 running at 2.66GHz, the 460 is powered by a Sandy Bridge processor, the Intel i5-2400, one that runs at 3.1GHz with a TDP of 95W.

Surprisingly, even the base configuration includes not only a 21.5-inch LED monitor but also a discrete Geforce GT420 graphics card with 1GB memory onboard. That's pretty interesting given how hard Intel drove the idea that Sandy Bridge's onboard graphics was so good.

Other features include Windows 7 Home Premium. 15 months Trend Micro business security services, 2GB RAM, a 320GB hard disk drive and eight USB 2.0 ports.
