For the average computer user, some could care less on how their desktop looks like. But don’t tell that to Dell as they have unveiled a couple of great designs that the average Joe is bound to fall for. Dell first started out as a maker of computers that users could customize with the exact hardware that they desired. Dell made its name on the customization options it offered buyers. More recently, Dell has been letting shoppers customize not only the hardware inside the notebook or desktop, but has been offering custom colors and designs on the exterior of the computer as well.
Dell has announced new Inspiron desktop computers called the Inspiron slim and mini-tower. The new machines can be customized with eight different colors that completely cover the front panel of the computer. Dell says it is the only major computer maker allowing users to color customize a desktop computer.
For sure, most computer geeks are going to want one of these customizable desktops coming in different colors and themes suitable for the taste and requirement that each wants. They seem to carry the sleek and slim design and apparently the issue of space allocation is obviously covered as well.
Welcome to the age of smaller CPUs and thinner monitors and the Dell Studio One 19 is certainly emphasizing on that. Looking more advanced, it carries a functional design that is certain to be tempting under the eyes of any techie freak wanting to be the first to own the latest technology offerings that PCs have to offer.
The specs look pretty good with CPU options that include Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad Core and either nVidia GeForce 9200 or 9400 GPU option. The hard drive can go up to 750GB with 4G of memory. It also has a 7-in-1 media card reader, and six USB ports. The user has the option of wireless capability and a 1.5 megapixel webcam, as well as Blu-ray and touchscreen. Now how can anyone not be tempted with those specifications? The Dell Studio One 19 is practically a demanded item in the world of computing!
The touchscreen feature allows for “multi-touch photo editing, slideshow creation, playlist compilation, notes, and web browsing”. The touchscreen allows for easy recording and uploading videos on YouTube, as well as Flickr. As for entertainment, the user can have a blast with the multi-touch percussion center and the You Paint finger painting software.
The base price for it is $699 but expect the numbers to flicker a bit especially when you start wanting more enhancements for it.
Dell is not solely focusing on the notebook business as it unveils its Dell Optiplex 160 Desktop. Desktops are not yet passé and branded ones such as the one being catered by Dell are sure to be still in demand. And with that notion, Dell aims to deliver powerful packages as preferred by desktop users today.
These days, $500 to $1,500 will net you a desktop with a dual-core CPU and enough power to run productivity apps, view and edit vacation photos, manage MP3s and videos, and even play many of today’s games, the core activities most common to families, students, and the general purpose PC user.
At $1,000 and up, you should easily be able to perform those tasks. Spend around $500, and in most cases you’ll still be able to run common tasks without delay, although 3D gaming becomes a stretch. You will definitely find a dual-core chip in a $500 desktop but Microsoft Vista could still give you trouble.
Be sure the PC is equipped with at least 1GB of memory, and it’s a good bet that you’ll be able to smoothly run Vista. Add in a 128MB graphics card, and you’ll get the Aero effects with little to no performance loss.
So with those facts and figures, you do the math. Surely, notebooks do cost much, but invest that amount in a wiser desktop and you get a more powerful desktop solution in one.
Conservative and economical consuming desktops are being sought after by most PC enthusiasts today and apparently Dell has heeded the call. Majority of these requirements are being called upon by the commercial sector as we see the growing demand for wise consuming computers in lieu of the traditional ones which seem to be eating up a lot of energy when operated parallel to business.
The Dell OptiPlex desktops aim to cut the consumption issues by more than half of the standard consuming energy PCs today and this will certainly capture the fancy of most companies who want to bring down electricity consumption costs that they have to deal with today.
Energy consumption is a key utility expense that many companies want to answer and while the investment may sound petrifying for most, it remains that if you want to change something concurrent, you have to start by getting rid of the old PCs and get the new ones into your fold.
It is not a matter of only upgrading but also about investing wisely in your IT infrastructure. PCs serve as workstations that gather data and are point of origins in an office setting. Many companies are due for an overhaul in the IT side of things and apparently Dell offers the OptiPlex to answer all these problems, both for computer requirements and of course addressing the power consumption issues.
While other businesses are planning their new business plan of attack, Dell is not holding anything back. In fact, their push for better sales and hopefully to satisfy the demand for quality and branded computers in the market continues and their latest offering is the Dell Alienware Aurora Desktop that is set to be sold in 200 stores in the United States.
Surely the Alienware Aurora desktop is targeted at the hardcore gamers who look for high-end requirements such as powerful graphics cards and leading edge performance peripherals. Rather than upgrade or buy parts one by one, Dell is offering a one package deal that simply required the new computer owner to install the preferred game and sit back and play afterwards.
The demand for specialized desktops to adhere towards the demands that the gaming phenomenon has set, PC users are now on the lookout for powerful specs, going as far as overboard at times simply to enjoy the pleasures of PC gaming. With the Dell desktop, not only are PC enthusiasts assured of higher specs but also a brand that has been reliable and well-known in the industry.
â€œPeople are defining themselves by the products they choose and groups they associate with,” says Michael Tatelman, vice president, global consumer sales and marketing, Dell. “Individuals who choose the Alienware Aurora are saying I am a serious gamer and user who demands the best in personal computing.”
Read the news and you will see a couple of new desktops in the market. Particularly in focus are the slimmer models from Dell which promise to be great space savers and are sure to compact the usual peripherals, much of which we see when we try and open our CPU. One has to wonder why old desktops need such space when in fact you can compress it by as much as 50% if you think about it.
Some point to ventilation or perhaps provisions for added parts that may be needed. But look a bit closely, unless you are a techie geek, chances are you will make do with what your CPU has to offer. There is no sense in pushing it if you donâ€™t have the proper space for it.
One thing that these new slim line CPUâ€™s carry though is cost and price. For sure they are going to cost mainly because they are in fashion and the fact that some of their inner components are specialized in nature, compressed as well and made from delicate technology manufacturers.
But the fact remains, will the demand for these slim lines be sufficient enough to justify the cost in manufacturing them? Perhaps! But you also have to consider demand. The number of techie people are indeed plenty but they are also wise buyers. They are not bound to bite instantly. For sure, they are aware that prices decline in time and during that period, that is perhaps the only time we can see the actual demand for these slimmer and modern PCs.
Here is something that is sure to get the attention of people who want unique PCs that also have a touch of eco-friendliness tagged alongside them. PC manufacturer Dell has reportedly unveiled the Eco-Friendly Mini Desktop PC Studio Hybrid which has a bamboo-clad concept as well.
Dell is release Eco-Friendly Mini Desktop Pc ‘Studio Hybrid. Designed with a bamboo-clad concept, the Studio Hybrid comes in six different colors. Measuring 72Ã—211Ã—197mm at 1.8kg, the Studio Hybrid is powered by Intel Pentium Dual Core T2390 processor, Windows Vista Home Basic/Premium, up to 4GB of RAM and 320GB HDD. It also supports WiFi, five USB ports and HDMI/DVI ports.
With these specs on hand, any person looking for a great PC to invest in that is likewise different from the traditional ones in the market would be happy to get one of these. A good addition to the home-based people who love to do most of their computer work at home, all you have to do is choose the color and do some computing.
Not a bad deal for people looking for a new PC and contributing to essential green awareness that can be heard anywhere to clean up their act as far as carbon footprints are concerned.
Here is a little something for the people who prefer branded yet affordable PC desktops. Dell will be officially releasing the Small Form Factor PC today and for sure this will be a good buy for people who put quality and preference for computer performance as well as relying heavily in brand name.
The small form factor PC that Dell was talking up earlier this year will be released tomorrow.
The company posted a teaser video to its blog today.
Dell says the new Studio Hybrid is 80 percent smaller than a traditional PC and it will come in seven different colors. But here’s some stuff that’s not in the video: It will retail for $699 with a monitor, and $499 without, according to sources familiar with the product. And, although it’s a desktop, it’ll have Intel’s latest mobile processor in it.
So for people who want something branded and worth value for their money, this Small Form Factor PC from Dell is a good option to consider. An eco-friendly factor that this PC boasts is that it uses 70% less energy and that the casing is made from recyclable materials. Check it out at your nearest store and see if it passes your standards in PC requirements.
Branded computers are perhaps the best computers in the market to buy but there are still some people who go for the cloned ones since they are cheaper and can be fabricated in the way of choosing the computer peripherals to use. Of the two, we can single out the choice as dependent on the end user.
For the typical computer user who simply wants to use software and do business or anything that a computer will allow them to perform, most of them would vouch for the branded ones as offered by big name players in the computer industry such as IBM, Compaq and Dell. Although price may be an issue, at least they are assured of quality parts and service to which will be needed should they find themselves distraught for sudden problems with their computer.
Clone computers or something I refer to as chop-chop, are normally preferred by the technical savvy people who can take them apart and assemble them as they wish, using various computer hardware stuff available in the market. Normally, the typical computer geek would have their CPU case opened since they often want to upgrade and change parts as often as they can.
Of the two, preference depends on the one owning or using the computer. There are people who have a high level of satisfaction when it comes to computer requirements while others are simply satisfied with using them as long as they can provide the needs of their software to get their job done.
It may seem obvious but depending on the nature of the person who owns and uses these computers, chances are it will divide which is for branded and which is for cloned computers.
