With the introduction of Dell’s Vostro series, its Dimension series was discontinued. The popular Inspiron line is now intended for the home market more so than the business market, regardless of the form factor. The great thing about the Dell Vostro Tower is that users can pretty much pick the components they specifically need for the work they want to do. The newer version is an expandable desktop designed for small business and comes with an array of storage and graphics options, giving it expandability.
These new models have a unique mesh design on the front of the tower incorporates extra vents and helps to reduce dust and allow faster cooling. Starting weighs is 11.6-lbs. There are tons of useful ports and slots located around the tower, which include expansion slots, a security cable slot, HDD LED Lens, ODD LED Lens, an optical drive, HDMI, VGA, Gigabit Ethernet, and several USB ports of every variety.
The Vostro line also includes “Small Desktops”, “Small Form Factors”, “3000 Mini Tower”, “Vostro 3900”, and the new “470 Mini Tower Desktop”. The 470 is specifically designed for small, but growing businesses seeking a mini tower with enough commanding power to meet today’s business needs, and scalable to technology that will be able to meet tomorrow’s needs.
Dell Vostro Tower Reviews and Graphics
Whichever model you decide to buy, you’ll be glad to know that Dell Vostro Tower reviews are usually positive. Owners seem satisfied that the build is durable and resistant to dents and scratches. These machines are also easy to upgrade and run quietly and smoothly. The interior of the case looks clean and well-organized.
The regular tower starts as low as $400, and it really offers a lot for that low amount, including an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB UDIMM RAM, a 1TB SATA 7200-RPM hard drive (3.5-inch), and Intel UHD graphics (630). If you want dedicated graphics, there is an option for NVIDIA GeForce GTX (1050 Ti) w/ 4GB of GDDR5 graphics memory for a bit more. You can also opt for an M.2 PCIe SSD (128GB – 256GB) instead of the SATA, or go with both for a dual drive solution.
There are several other configurations and options available with the mini towers and small form factors.
Before you decide on which Dell Vostro Tower is right for you, and what hardware you want, it’s a good idea to carefully look over your options at the online store, read reviews, and check and see what all Dell coupons and deals are available.
