Dell To Offer Crapware, Bloatware Free PCs

Attention those who hate bloatware and crapware: Dell is offering PCs that are free of everything except Google Toolbar.

The new line, named Vostro, is aimed at the small business market and consists of 4 laptops and 2 desktops.

From Computerworld:

“Customers really hated trialware,” said Michael Dell, the company’s CEO, during the Vostro rollout in New York. “It was the most frustrating thing for customers in setting up a new computer,” he added, citing a recent survey the company commissioned of small business users. “Our new Vostro line comes with no trialware, none at all.”

It does come with Google Toolbar, according to Computerworld, but so what. Life is demonstrably not perfect. More companies should offer this.
