Dell has added to its Inspiron family an Inspiron all-in-one desktop and an Inspiron Zino HD offering home-theater capabilities.
The Inspiron One is a desktop featuring a high-definition (1080p) widescreen color display, along with built-in Wi-Fi, webcam, DVD drive and HDMI interface for connecting to TV tuners, cable- and satellite boxes and gaming consoles. The available remote control makes it easy to stream video, watch high-definition TV or play video games on the computer’s big screen.
The Energy Star 5.0-compliant Inspiron One is also environmentally friendly; its highly efficient WLED backlit display consumes less power and is mercury–free and arsenic-free.
Dell has created a user interface called Stage, which lets families and students quickly access their favorite content as well as a collection of creative applications, including “Touch Instruments,” “You Paint,” “Sticky Notes” and “Touch Cam.”
Dell Stage presents access to collections of music, photos, videos, games and other applications. For instance:
- Touching the MusicStage tile reveals an individual’s personal music collection.
- The VideoStage organizes personal videos and downloaded TV shows and movies and gives people the ability to purchase or rent content directly from partners like CinemaNow in the United States.
- The PhotoStage includes integrated social networking capabilities through Facebook and Flickr so people can upload their latest photos or views pictures of their friends.
Inspiron Zino HD
The Inspiron Zino HD is a mini powerhouse entertainment PC. The Zino HD offers up to an AMD quad-core Phenom II processor that delivers an immersive high definition entertainment and gaming experience combined with optional 1GB discrete graphics1; built-in networking and media card reader that provides instant access to digital images and videos; VGA and HDMI connections for displays and TVs; available THX 7.1 surround sound; optional Blu-ray Disc combo drive, and up to 1TB2 of hard disk storage.
With the available wireless keyboard and IR remote control, families can direct their TV viewing or Web surfing experience from across the room.
The Inspiron Zino HD looks great in standard black, but can be personalized with three optional lid colors: Tomato Red, Peacock Blue and Mercury Silver. And like the Inspiron One, the Zino HD is simple and easy to set up.
