Having a computer, especially a laptop for those of us that travel is essential for everyday work tasks for many small business owners. Having the IT budget to keep everything working and loading and communicating with all your other devices is often overlooked, especially during slow months.
Dell computers have stepped up to offer that market segment a smart solution – an IT free computer for small businesses known as the Dell Vostro. The Dell Vostro is meant to keep computing simple and convenient, taking the hassle out of fixing your computer when it goes down, while saving you the budget and headache of getting outside help.
These Vostro laptops come with 24/7 tech support, remote access servicing of your computer from a Dell technician, and on-site technicians to help out in a real crunch if one arises. This obviously seems like a god-send for those of us that aren’t tech geeks but need to have a functioning computer.
The Vostro offers a number of different models to choose from (the 1000s series and the 3000s series). The Vostro 3000s models are the most recent addition to the line and they range anywhere from a 13″ screen to 17″ screen models and cost anywhere from $649 – $699 for the basic setups, some Vostro 1000s are priced as low as $399.
Unfortunately the 24/7 tech support and all the other tech support you would actually use only last for 1 year with the i¬ncluded price. Also the basic set up models are only good if you plan on running basic applications like Word, Excel, Acrobat, Outlook, and for internet browsing and emailing. Any hardcore graphics work or video editing isn’t recommended on the basic setup.
For a decent setup capable of doing graphics work and video editing along with having a 3 year pro tech support plan you will be looking at a price tag around $1800 for a customized Vostro 3700. While I think the idea around the Vostro is great, I only recommend buying one for small business owners who only do the basics and need a reliable cheap laptop; as long as you remember to purchase the extended 3 year pro 24/7 tech support to go with it.
For any small business owners who need to do a lot of intense graphics or video editing work, I would stay away from the Vostro, even maxed out they would barely offer enough CPU and memory power to accommodate the latest editing and graphics software.
