March 18, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Vostro 230 desktops and the S300w projector (pictured), which have been much discussed in various fora, have been pushed off the assembly line by Dell. While the S300w Short Throw Projector comes sporting capabilities that would display 3D images of up to 720p HD resolutions, the Vostro 230 desktop PCs have been offered as a Slim device along with another that sports the Mini Tower outlook. The two new products have launched this week with the price tags starting at $389 and $299 respectively for the Dell Vostro 230 Slim and Mini Tower. Meanwhile the S300w projectors can be made yours for $999.

First, the Vostro 230 PCs. The Dell Vostro 230 Slim and Mini Tower desktop PCs have been offered by Dell with new chassis designs.  Powered by Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo, Pentium or Celeron processors, the Vostro 230 PCs run Windows 7 Operating System.

The desktop PCs claim up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, up to 2 hard drives for up to 2TB of storage space. Added features include a DVD ROM or DVD burner, and the Intel GMA X4500 integrated or optional NVIDIA GeForce G310 512MB and NVIDIA GeForce GT220 dedicated graphics.

Meanwhile, the S300w projector boasts of an output of 2,200 lumens and a contrast ratio is 2,400:1. The Wi-Fi capabilities make the device wireless. In addition, Dell has incorporated a USB flash drive and Application Token software that can channel content from a host computer to the S300w for projection. One aspect we liked about the new S300w is that it can produce a 60-inch image from a short distance of two feet from the screen. Try it at a 3-foot projection distance, and you get an enhanced 90-inch image. Doesn’t that sound good?

Dell has made the S300w a perfect projector by adding to the pack a remote, ports that include an HDCP-compliant HDMI port, two VGA ports, S-Video, composite and an Ethernet jack. An 8W speaker completes the line up.
