We’re bringing Ivy Bridge technology to our newest Vostro desktop. To put a new spin on the oft-used Goldilocks analogy—the new Dell Vostro 470 desktop is juuuust right, but has the ability to microwave your porridge when your business needs change.

The new Vostro 470 is the powerhouse desktop computer system in the Vostro portfolio and really represents an amazing sweet spot for business users. It’s available in the United States starting at $599 and will be available in many countries around the world later this week. Businesses get a powerful PC at a price associated with entry-level computing, but it has the power and capabilities that move well beyond computing basics.

Right out-of the box, the Vostro 470 contains a number of features that bring real value and convenience. The 470 has moved to integrate a number of features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 3.0 ports. With four USB 3.0 and six USB 2.0 ports, the 470 is set for fast transfers, peripheral connections and serves as a power source for digital devices.

But as I noted about moving well beyond the basics, the Vostro 470 contains 4 DIMM slots that carry the foundation to grow with your business and evolve with your needs. With Intel’s third Generation Core i5 and i7 Quad Core processors, up to 32GB of memory and up to 3TB of storage, it can perform stressful business functions like financial modeling, data mining, video editing and web development with ease. With the use of the 32GB mSATA option, Intel’s Smart Response Technology provides SSD-like read/write performance for the files you use most, while providing lower storage cost with the traditional hard drive. Bottom line- you’re booting and loading those applications much faster and gaining a 33% performance advantage over a traditional 500GB 7200RPM hard drive.

So the Vostro 470 can definitely evolve with your business over time, but critical security and support services start right out of the gate with Dell ProSupport and DataSafe Online Backup, which gives your business (with little or no IT support) the peace of mind you need so you can concentrate on your business, not IT.

The Vostro 470’s formula for crushing today’s tasks and conquering tomorrow’s to do list:

  • A mini tower packed with power and leading-edge technology to handle your biggest workload,
  • Ample technology to stay on task and expand your business,
  • A suite of desktop-accessible service and support solutions designed with your business in mind,
  • 3nd Generation Intel Quad Core i5 and i7 Processors for maximum productivity,

  • A tool-less chassis to expand your memory and graphics capabilities quickly and easily,
  • Four USB 3.0 and six USB 2.0 ports to connect all your digital devices and peripherals,
  • Optional 24/7 Dell ProSupport and optional Dell DataSafe Online Backup and
  • Built-in security services from Trend Micro.
