Dell Dock SoftwareWritten by Simon Barker on July 9, 2008 · Filed under Review, Software, Tech
The Dell Dock is a new piece of software that is being installed on new Dell computer systems which provides a customisable navigational ‘shortcut bar’ to help tidy up your desktop and speed up your day-to-day tasks by making it easier to get to where you need to go on your Dell computer.
I had a bit of a play with the Dell Dock when I was at the Dell Studio Laptop launch a couple of weeks ago at a Silverstone Formula 1 testing day. I must say that it seemed very similar to the other ‘dock’ software that you can download and install yourself, not that it’s a bad thing if something works well.
Dell are obviously trying to enhance their customers’ experience of using their newly launched Dell Studio 15 and 17 ranges of laptops with this new feature which will likely be implemented onto other Dell models soon as well.

I think that it works well and is a worthy addition to your computer if you’re like me and your desktop has a tendency to get rather cluttered. Like anything I think if you’ve got a large monitor with plenty of desktop real-estate to make best use of this, it will only make this more useful to you as you can fit even more things onto the dock.
What do you think to desktop dock software? Do you use one? Would you remove it if you bought a new Dell computer with it installed?
