Want 20GB of free DropBox storage? Buy a Dell

Dell promotion gives customers a year’s worth of free cloud storage

Dell announced this week a promotion that provides customers 20 GB of free cloud storage for a year at DropBox with the purchase of a Dell tablet or personal computer.

Dell's Venue tablet, XPS, Inspiron and Alienware products are all part of the promotion. As part of a new partnership announced late last year with DropBox, all new Dell devices will prompt users to install DropBox and provide them access to their 20GB of free storage (prompt is pictured). By this summer, DropBox will be installed as a default application on the devices.

Dell also offers PocketCloud, a service from Wyse, which Dell bought last year. In a blog post announcing the DropBox storage, Dell hints that DropBox and PocketCloud could be merged together in the future. "In the coming months, Dropbox and PocketCloud will be integrated into a seamless interface for Dell customers- creating an easy-to-use personal cloud solution that allows customers to have access to their files from anywhere that's unsurpassed by the competition."
