The Dell Vostro 430 desktop, which officially rolled out Oct. 1, is geared toward small businesses and those companies with a budget but with the need for solid computing power. Dell introduced the Vostro line in 2007 as a way to address the small and midsize business (SMB) market. While many of Dell's other Vostro laptops and desktop are priced in the $300 to $400 range, the Vostro 430 represents the higher end of the company's offerings for SMBs. The Vostro 430 configuration that Dell is promoting has a price tag of $749.
One reason for the price is the use of Intel's newer Core i7 and Core i5 processors. These chips are built with Intel's newer "Nehalem" microarchitecture and add to the overall price of the client. In addition, Dell offers a choice of 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT220 and GTS240 graphics or an AMD 512MB ATI Radeon HD 4350 GPU.
