Dell and Microsoft partnered on a program called (RED) in conjunction with (RED) co-founder Bono to help fight AIDS in Africa. The program offers special (RED) branded PCs and printer in which part of the proceeds will go to help people in places like Rwanda, Swaziland and Ghana.
For each purchased (PRODUCT) RED branded PC from Dell loaded with a RED branded Windows Vista Ultimate, Dell and Microsoft will contribute between $50 and $80 to the Global Fund of the program. $80 will bring as much as six months of life-saving antiretroviral treatment for a person living with AIDS in Africa. A RED branded printer will generate a $5 contribution.
The (PRODUCT) RED PCs and printer are easily identified with a distinguishable red color and the (RED) branding. The Windows Vista OS also comes with some unique wallpapers, a screensaver, sidebar gadget and a (RED) DreamScene theme. The Dell products available in the RED promotion include the XPS One, XPS M1330, XPS M1530 and the 948 All-in-One Printer. All products are available through the Dell and through Best Buy.
