Dell’s slimline Inspiron range is the latest to get the colour treatment. These crayon coloured desktops will come in shades like tangerine orange, plum purple and promise pink. Starting at only US$300, they can pack an alarming amount of tech. Each can fit an Intel Core 2 Quad processor, up to 8GB of RAM, 750GB of hard drive space and a Blu-ray drive. Why not go for the low-specced option, pick a colour to match your drapes and stick it in the living room under your TV. Stylish media centre on the cheap, done.
How are the mighty fallen. The once proud desktops of the world have been replaced by wafer thin LCD screens, touting enough slimline tech to make supercomputers of old blush. Computers, like the Dell Studio One all-in-one, are leading the war against their blocky cousins. It has a Core 2 Quad Core processor, up to 4GB of RAM and 750GB hard drive. It also packs a monstrous Nvidia GeForce 9400 GPU along with slot-loading Blu-ray drive. And if you have the money to customize, it will fit a touchscreen in place of the regular 19in display. We’re sad to see you go desktop, and we’ll never forget your bulky charms.
Hot on the heels of the latest Lambo launch, Asus have rolled out the VX5 range. Styled in similiar fashion to every other Asus Lamborghini (sleek bonnet with trademark leather bits on the keyboard) it’s got some serious speed under the hood. Powered by an Intel Core 2 Quad processor and GeForce GT 130M graphics with 1GB of dedicated DDR3 RAM, this rig has the world’s first 1TB solid state drive. There’s no word on when it’ll be driving to these shores, or its price, but you can check out the official release from Asus here.
