    Unpack the box -- inside, there's jobs!

    Computer giant Dell is moving into the South Bay -- and with it, hundreds of jobs could follow.

    Up to 850 workers could be employed by the Texas-based computer giant in Santa Clara, accoding to the Oakland Tribune.

    That'd be 600 more than the workforce currently toiling away at a building near Highway 237. A second, larger building would accomodate the new workers, the newspaper reported.

    When Dell is through, the company wants 1,500 workers in Silicon Valley, a company spokesman told the newspaper.

    Dell could inhabit the second building -- all 154,000-square-feet of it -- by June, the newspaper reported.

    Dell's not the only one grabbing office space in the South Bay during this new tech boom: Facebook recently nabbed new space in Menlo Park, and Google, Apple, Motorola, Microsoft and others are also busy signing leases, the newspaper observed.
