Dell teams with Universal Music Group to preload MP3 music on laptops
Dell and Universal Music Group (UMG) teamed to provide a simple way to jump-start a digital music library by pre-loading MP3 bundles on select new systems purchased on

Users will be able to select a variety of optional music bundles to be pre-installed on their new PC, creating highly personalized music collections right out of the box.

As part of this unique offering, Dell and UMG have created 50 and 100-song music bundles starting at US$25, each of which includes a curated selection of MP3s for approximately half of current standard per track pricing.

Pre-installed music bundles are immediately accessible once the PC is turned on, organized under the “Music” icons on the Dell Dock — no CDs or downloads required.

All pre-loaded music titles come in DRM-free MP3 format making it easy for users to play that content on any software or hardware player of their choice. Dell and UMG plan to expand the Music selection and will refresh offerings on a regular basis.
