Dell PCs to include Napster subscription
PC maker Dell and online music service Napster have come to an agreement that will see the two offering Inspiron and Studio models in Germany, the UK and the US with preloaded content from Napster's music service. Through the agreement, these models will include 60 MP3s of the buyer's choice as well as 12 months of unlimited music streaming from Napster's service. Dell estimates it should save buyers at least the $60 for the individual tracks.
The models will start shipping later in October and join several existing Dell deals for preloaded content, including games and movies. Napster's deal is unique in encouraging buyers to renew an ongoing subscription instead of a one-time deal.
