Other highlights include:
- Scalability of processing power, graphics and hard drives including latest generation of Intel Core2 Duo technology;
- Support for Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, XP; along with Ubuntu Linux support in select countries;
- Easy to service chassis, with tool-less components and DirectDetect LED diagnostic lights;

“The death of the commercial desktop has been greatly overstated,” said Mike Basore, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Dell Business Client Product Group. “We are seeing customers look to deploy small form factor systems in ways never before imagined. These new desktop systems provide a rock solid foundation which Dell is known for while providing long-lifecycle and secure capabilities in key areas such as client virtualization and systems management.”
