Dell unveiled new Studio Hybrid PC along with two desktop PCs in the Inspiron Category. As per the Texas based PC maker, the hybrid PC looks like a “Collegiate Dictionary” and it can be set up horizontally or vertically to fit into any home environment. It comes with seven finishes i.e. bamboo, emerald, quartz, ruby, sapphire, slate, and topaz. The Dell Studio Hybrid costs $874 direct, and $1,064 with a 19-inch widescreen monitor.
The Hybrid comes with Intel’s Pentium dual-core and Core 2 Duo processors, and supports up to 4G bytes of RAM and up to 320G bytes of hard drive storage. It also includes Gigabit Ethernet and optional wireless networking. It is preloaded with the Windows Vista OS. An optional Blu-ray DVD drive will become available in August. According to Dell, the PC is about 80 percent smaller than a typical desktop minitower, uses up to 70 percent less energy and is Energy Star 4.0 compliant
Speaking at the Fortune Brainstorm conference in Pasadena, Calif., as part of Earth Day observances, Dell said that the new machine will be the “company’s smallest and most environmentally responsible consumer desktop PC.”
“Our goal was to design a desktop that fits in the office or in the living room, or anywhere space is at a premium,” said Michael Scheschuk, Dell desktop product marketing. “We’ve created a desktop PC category that combines style, performance and a high degree of energy efficiency.”
