Google will incorporate on Dell computers its desktop software, which integrates a number of personal computing applications, a Google tool bar and a co-branded internet home page, officials from both companies said on Thursday.

Dell will start selling Google-equipped PCs to consumers and small and mid-sized businesses by the end of this month, Blackburn said. The systems will also be offered to some large corporate customers.

At the time, Dell and Google were reported to be in talks to install the software on as many as 100 million new Dell PCs, following a bidding process in which Google edged out Microsoft, the world's biggest software maker, and after web search rival Yahoo withdrew.

The company last week announced it would equip some high-end corporate server computers with microchips from Advanced Micro Devices, whose advanced processors have been gaining in popularity at the expense of industry leader Intel, previously Dell's sole chip supplier.
