Call me a sucker for a good design, but I love Dell’s new candy-colored mini computers. New for this year’s holiday season the computer manufacturer has just launched a line of desktop PCs with small form factors…and surprisingly, quite a lot of power too. Called the Dell Inspiron Zino HD, these mini machines offer up to 8 GB of RAM, 1 TB of hard drive space, a 1.8GHz dual-core AMD Athlon Neo X2 6850e CPU, a 512MB ATI Radeon HD 4330 GPU, a Blu-Ray drive, DVD burner, HDMI out, a 4-in-1 card reader, four USB 2.0 sockets, a pair of eSATA ports, Wi-Fi, and a wireless keyboard and mouse. The PCs start at $229, but if you trick them out with all the options, the price can end up being a lot more.
If you can wait to purchase, the line will soon feature a TV Tuner option as well, although that won’t be available at launch unfortunately.
The Zino PCs run Windows 7 and come with a wireless remote, too. You can learn more about the line on Dell’s website here.
