The Vostro 200 is an astoundingly cheap desktop that offers few thrills. It does surprise by being reasonably upgradeable; there are two DDR2 slots for extra memory, there is space for 2 hard drives and two optical drives, it also comes with 2 pci slots & 1 pci express slot although if you are thinking high end graphics card, think again because the power supply isn’t up to much.
I still can’t believe Dell ship their cheap desktops with VGA ports instead of DVI. Another couple of annoying features are the old noisy 250GB hard drive shipped with my model and the range on the included intel 802.11 n wireless card, I get a far better signal from a €10 cheap usb dongle!
All of these negative points don’t really detract from the fact that the Vostro 200 offers amazing value for money. If you want a cheap basic but reasonably capable desktop, go for it!
