The Dell Vostro 230 is an entry-level desktop computer designed for small businesses. Available in "Mini" and "Slim" form factors, the Vostro 230 is highly customizable, and enables mainstream performance in its most expensive configuration, which includes a 2.66GHz quad-core Intel processor and 4 GB of memory. The basic configuration, by contrast, relies on a 2.20GHz Intel Celeron processor and only 1 GB of RAM. For casual gamers, lower-end discrete graphics options are available with some configurations. The desktop is equipped with a card reader and gigabit ethernet, but lacks Wi-Fi.
