Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Direct PC vendor Dell was offering a bargain of sorts on its Web site yesterday. For a mere $103,324, you could pick up a Dell Precision workstation 210. The machine came with a 600MHz Pentium III chip, 128MB of memory, a Diamond Viper V770D video card with 32MB graphics memory, a 27GB Hard Drive, Windows NT 4.0 (but no upgrade to Windows 2000), a 19-inch Monitor, a 3Com Ethernet card, a CD-RW Drive (24x read speed), a 104 Key Keyboard a Logitech 2 button scroll mouse, a 1.44M Floppy, and three year's warranty. If you couldn't afford to hand over $103,324 all at once, Dell was offering you a preferential 36-month business lease at only a mere $3,192 a month. At prices like these, why shop elsewhere? ®
