Dell Celebrates Windows Vista Launch

Dell CEO Kevin Rollins has said that customer interest in Microsoft Windows Vista was even stronger than expected during the first weekend of the new operating systems' availability. Rollins, who is participating in Microsoft's Windows Vista global launch in New York, said Dell took orders for thousands of Windows Vista-enabled desktop and notebook systems Saturday and Sunday as Dell leads the industry in ushering in a new era of computing.

Dell systems equipped with Windows Vista are designed to deliver a rich digital lifestyle experience, combined with secure operations and ease of use. With Windows Vista customers can easily record and watch high definition video, organize digital photo and music libraries, quickly search data and multimedia files and browse the Internet with better security.

While industry competitors are scrambling to move old technology sitting on store shelves, Dell's build-to-order manufacturing facilities are customizing its new desktops and notebooks with Windows Vista pre-loaded and shipped directly to customers. Since September 2003, Dell has been working with Microsoft on developing and testing Windows Vista on more than 100 applications. Dell engineers have tested over 500,000 different PC configurations to deliver a high quality customer experience. Sales and technical support employees have spent more than 215,000 hours in training to help customers configure and purchase the right systems and help customers with questions as they transition to Vista.
