Dell ups warranty, specs for cheap Dimensions
Dell is increasing the warranty on its cheapest desktop PCs from 90 days to one year and improving its minimum configurations without raising the price. The Dimension B110 series PCs now come with DVD-ROM drives and monitors without a change in the $299 starting price.
Dell also plans to decrease the charge for its three- to five-day delivery option from $99 to $29 for its PCs. The company recently increased its minimum configurations on certain high-end XPS desktops, even though overall desktop-PC shipments are expected to shrink in 2006 in mature economies such as the U.S. as more and more people convert to notebooks.
