Bono, Bill Gates and Michael Dell will be announcing that Dell and Microsoft are joining (RED) to help eliminate AIDS in Africa. Microsoft's involvement in this project is called Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED.

Windows participation in the (PRODUCT) RED initiative means that, for every Dell (PRODUCT) RED PC running Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED, Microsoft and Dell make a financial contribution to The Global Fund.

The companies say no overhead is taken out of the funds contributed and 100% of the money contributed to (RED) goes to The Global Fund. Thus far, (RED) has put contributions to work in Swaziland, Rwanda and Ghana. Existing partiipant companies in this campaign include American Express, Motorola, Emporio Armani, and others.

Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED is available on Dell PCs bearing the (PRODUCT) RED color and etching and running Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED. Windows Vista Ultimate (PRODUCT) RED includes special wallpapers, Windows Sidebar gadgets, screensaver, and Windows DreamScene.

A new website will be launched with more details. Dell (PRODUCT) RED products include:

Purchase contributes $50 to the Global Fund, which buys nearly 4 months of antiretroviral medication.

XPS M1530 (PRODUCT) RED - The XPS M1530 is a sleek 15.4-inch notebook that is loaded with premium features like built-in webcam and fingerprint reader, and design accents like touch-sensitive multi-media buttons and brushed aluminum accents.
