Dell, Napster sign deal for music content on new PCs Napster and PC-maker Dell have signed a deal today to have the electronics giant bundle new Inspiron and Studio laptops with a 12-month subscription to Napster's unlimited streaming music service.
In the US, the bundle will be worth $60 USD, but will also include 60 free tracks that can be downloaded and kept forever, even after the subscription runs out.

The notebooks will be available on Dell's site or through Best Buy, the owner of Napster.

The deal marks the first of its kind for Dell, who has previously bundled with exclusive labels and studios but never with a music service.

Rival HP recently began bundling 1000 free Universal tracks with new notebook purchases in China and other Asian nations, 120 of which can be kept after a one year trial is up.
