Dell started shipping a new workstation on 18 September, offering customers working with complex financial applications or graphics-intensive programs a small but powerful system.

The Dell Precision Workstation 340 comes with an Intel Pentium 4 processor running up to 2GHz and with a 400MHz system bus. The product starts at $1,099 (£747), excluding monitor. A top-level version of the computer, with the 2GHz Pentium 4 chip, a 20Gbyte hard drive and a NVidia Quadro2 EX graphics card will cost $2,818, according to a statement.

This is the first workstation from Dell with an internal architecture supporting future Pentium 4 processors from Intel running beyond 2GHz, a Dell company spokeswoman said.

The 340 is the smallest workstation offered by Dell, measuring 4.25in by 15.37in, with a depth of 16.97in. A similarly configured 330 workstation measures 6.5in by 17.4in with a depth of 17in.

The product is shipping in the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region, but will be sold worldwide by early October.

Users can choose between Microsoft's Windows 2000 Professional, Windows NT 4.0 and version 7.1 of Red Hat's Linux.
