Dell Computers preloaded with Google Software

Dell Laptops and Desktop Computers may soon be shipped preloaded with Google Toolbar and Google Desktop Search.

Google is in discussion with Dell that could result in Google paying the computer maker up to $1 billion to have its software factory-installed on new Dell PCs.

Google Toolbar and Google Desktop Search are among the items that could appear on new Dell machines.

Dell UK already bundles Firefox with new Dell computers. Google already has a Personalized Google Dell Start Page.

Computer users often don't switch from the pre-loaded programs after they boot up a new computer, making this a lucrative market.
