The one-button, on-the-go solution
You are already late for your 8 a.m. meeting and forgot your handheld for easy access to the meeting location. Now you have to wait for your notebook to fully boot to access your calendar making you even later.
Your audience is getting restless as you attempt to bring up the PowerPoint presentation you need for a new business pitch.
As an entrepreneur, you’re always on the run – managing customer, employee, supplier and family commitments. Because every second of your day counts, you need reliable technology solutions that help make you more efficient. What you don’t need is the hassle – and wasted time – of having to fully boot your notebook every time you need to access your files, contacts and calendars. What you do need is Dell MediaDirectTM with Instant Office – the exclusive one-button instant access feature Dell has incorporated into its VostroTM 1400, 1500 and 1700 notebook computers.
With Dell MediaDirect, your files, multi-media, contacts and calendars can be accessed in seconds vs. several minutes when you have to fully boot your system. And when you’re in a rush, every minute counts.
The Solution – How MediaDirect Works
The "instant office" capabilities of Dell MediaDirect enable you to use Vostro notebooks as mobile productivity and entertainment hubs anywhere you are. Without having to waste precious minutes starting Windows, Dell MediaDirect allows you to view Microsoft PowerPoint presentations and Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express contacts and calendars in addition to playing music, photos and videos stored nearly anywhere on the computer – in just seconds.
