One of the most annoying things about buying a new computer is all of the trial software you will have to deal with. You know all of those, “Try our security program for 90 days! And then we’ll annoy you to subscribe for an eternity!” Sure you can remove it all, but it’s a pain. Don’t you wish you could buy a computer that didn’t come with any of that stuff? Well, there is a solution, and it’s called the Dell Vostro line.

Last night I ran into an old acquittance while I was out shopping, and he started telling me about his computer woes. He had been out shopping that day for a new computer and was lamenting all the trial software he would have to deal with.  I told him about Dell’s Vostro line, and it was then I remembered this has only ever really been marketed to small & medium businesses, but to the best of my knowledge, anyone can order them.

The concept of the line is simple enough in that the only software it comes with is what you request.  In other words, if you order Microsoft Office with it, it comes with that, if you don’t order it, it does not come with a trial version.  Don’t order security software?  No trial of that either.  There is absolutely nothing on this system except for Dell diagnostic software, the operating system of your choice and other miscellaneous little tools that help run the computer.  There is absolutely no trial software anywhere on the system.  Period.

The Vostro line has existed for a couple of years now, and I now have two desktops and three laptops from the Vostro line (one laptop is semi-retired), and not a one of them came with any trial software.  It isn’t a gimmick, it isn’t a trick, it just is.  The systems are solid, and while I’ve had an issue here or there, Dell has fixed them all.  Why and how Dell can do this, I have no idea, but I’m sure never going to argue with it.

So, if you need a new system, and have no desire to deal with all that junk software, give the Vostro line a look.
