Dell part numbers of my Vostro 200 ST

Tuesday, February 24, 2009 | 1 comment

Today, around half past four in the afternoon I received an email, asking if I happen to know the Dell part number for the ATI Radeon 2400 XT card. So I checked my gmail account which had a quote from Dell, and emailed the Dell part number, 320-6008, back.

Since I was expecting this question to be asked again in the future, I decided to copy all parts mentioned on Dell's quote to this blog entry. I translated the items to English, but have no idea what TBU means - other than Tape Backup Unit. If you know the answer, please post a comment.

Output of lspci

For completeness sake I've also included the output of lspci on my Dell Vostro 200 ST running Ubuntu 8.10:

Good News: Vostro without Operating System

I discovered this month in Dell's brochure that the Dell Vostro 220 ST is also available without an operating system! Now that's good news. It took me a long week of arguing with Dell in order to finally get my Vostro 200 ST without a Microsoft operating system last year.

Dell Vostro 220 ST available without Operating System.

Sadly, Dell didn't name it the "Dell Vostro Bokma" as I suggested in my blog entry last year, see Dell Vostro 200 Windows Tax Free in Mexico, but I am glad that my persistence made a difference in the end. Thanks for listening Dell!
