Dell Announced Studio Desktop and Studio Slim Desktop

Posted by at 4:06 pm on September 24, 2008

Dell announced today the global launch of the Studio Desktop and Studio Slim Desktop aimed at winning a spot in your living room or media room.

People today are showing home movies or photos, listening to MP3s, or even watching Internet TV programming in their homes – all of which Dell has made easier by having a built-in HDMI for easy connection to HDTVs with these new models.   For movies buffs, there is an optional Blu-ray Disc player. Plus all these new machines support DirectX 10 graphics for gaming.

Add an optional TV Tuner and use Microsoft’s Windows Media Center to watch, pause, and rewind live TV and record favorite shows.
