Most of the desktops that have been announced that feature Intel's new Sandy Bridge processors have been gaming computers, but Dell has just launched the Vostro 460, the first business-class desktop using the new chips.
Clearly designed for biz users who need more power than from the typical corporate desktop, the Vostro 460 packs the Core i5-2400 quad-core processor by default, but you can also upgrade to the Core i7-2600 for some hyperthreading action. The base $599 configuration is otherwise pretty spartan -- just 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 320GB hard drive, integrated graphics, and no monitor -- but you can customize to your heart's content. That includes discrete graphics options like the AMD Radeon HD 5450 or 5670 and the Nvidia GeForce GT 420 or a pair of hard drives with up 3TB of storage space.
The Vostro 460 is already available to order on Dell's Web site. You can click here to check out all the details.
