Dell has just announced two new Dimension desktop computers, the Dimension 4500 and Dimension 4500S, to suit wide-ranging customers' needs from microprocessor and video high performance to being able to fit in small places. The first, the Dimension 4500S, is designed for customers who need powerful Intel Pentium P4 or Celeron technology in a compact, mini-tower chassis that can be positioned horizontally or vertically in tight spaces. Priced starting at $749, a typical 4500S configuration features Intel's new 845G chipset, which incorporates the next generation of extreme integrated graphics, utilizes up to 48 MB of dynamic system memory and features six integrated USB 2.0 ports.

It also features Intel's new 845E chipset, along with more memory bandwidth that enables better graphics, multitasking, integrated USB 2.0 support and Microsoft Windows XP performance. Prices for a typical configuration start at $849.
